Re: Walmart Exclusive Generation 1 Optimus Prime Vintage Reissue Sighting

That price is totally outrageous. Glad I own like, 4 vintage Primes (with trailers, I might add...)

Re: Walmart Exclusive Generation 1 Optimus Prime Vintage Reissue Sighting

I was on the fence when I thought this might be $50. Well, not on the fence any longer. They can fence this to someone else. *sigh*

Wow.
I'll still bite. Once.
Then again at the first discount.
Then again at the second discount.
Being honest.
It is Prime.

Wowzers, that makes Siege Ultra Magnus & Shockwave at $70 seem like an awesome deal!

Good thing I bought the 25th Ann one when it came out and for 1/2 this price. Good grief

But I agree, $70 is too steep for something that's essentially been released in:

-1984 original
-1992 G2
-2004 20th anniversary reissue
-20xx reissue

all with trailers, and 25 - 50 $.
So now $70 sans trailer???

Pass, that price kills the nostalgia. Just wait for the clearance sale...

Re: Walmart Exclusive Generation 1 Optimus Prime Vintage Reissue Out in Canada

While I'm a bit Diaclone fan, and while the cab mode looks great, I never found it all that nice looking... I preferred the trailer to be honest...

And here we are, expensive, no trailer, so like many others, it's a pass for me...

(Considering that I have an original laying around (missing all accessories) that I use with my also "in bad shape" Ultra Magnus trailer/armour.)

I have enough cartoon "accurate" type versions of Prime... and I prefer "nice and fun and poseable and such" over nostalgia.

I'd rather have someone make a Siege version trailer that would be reflective of the G1 trailer but updated... Dang I really wish someone would. *sigh*

This will be scooped up by scalpers on initial release, then it will shelf warm when there is no interest.

Rather have the g1 studio series than this.
