It features the "G1" repaint of Armada/Cybertron Bendy Prime, and seemingly the same versions of Runamuck, Blurr, Buzzsaw and Longrack that came out during Cybertron.

Wow. Good thing I have no need for that Prime, as I already own 3 of those toys, and there's a reason why I skipped Buzzsaw the first time around. Man, the Prime collectors among us are getting a bit shafted on this one.

I can certainly do without that Prime recolor. Yay for boring exclusives.


...I think 2005 just went down.

Good thing I already have a Bendy Prime and Longrack.



I would have swapped Runamuck for the Cybertron Demoliser repaint. Then you'd have 2 x Excellent molds and 3 x Good - Average molds and no stinky mold.

On the one hand, DAMN, more freaking REPEATS of stuff that's already available. Why so much of this? Since they have the tooling to make the G1 Battlechargers using the Armada Sideswipe mold, we could have at least gotten a white recolor. On the other hand, I guess this justifies at least putting the G1 looking guys from Cybertron in with your Classics display.

No, he was red and gray. This one is very similar mind you, but a new deco none the less.

And here's a mirror of the image for those that can't get to TFW2005:

A 5pk consisting of all new repaints of these molds would have been worth considering (especially if they did an ehhhh...white...Runamuck), but just repackaging four of these? They didn't really sell the first time? I do wonder how much this pack will go for though.

I love how it looks like Runamuck & Blurr are standing on the sidelines chatting while everyone else does the dramatic anime tableau. icon-fire.gif

I'm kinda disappointed. I didnt get the Cyb version, and only have one version of the bendy prime mold and liked the colors of this one. Though since I dont have Blurr or Buzzsaw it wouldnt be a total loss getting the 5 pack.

Eh, it's a Sam's exclusive. It has basically no effect on the rest of the line.

If it was just Prime I'd buy it, as that's a pretty blue. As is I have all these figures, so no way in heck I would pay for this just to get a prettier blue.

How are these figures, minus the Prime, exclusive when they came out two years ago?

If you look close at the packaging, it only actually calls the Optimus an exclusive.

Prime is one fine-lookin' redeco.
And I'm missing half the other guys. I can probably customize something acceptable out of Longrack.
Which leaves me with an extra Runamuck piece of crap. :/

I already own Mudlfap, Runamuck, and Blurr. I am looking for teh Deluxe Optimus, though.

This is pure fail. The majority of the figures in the set aren't even in the show, so what's the point?

Hermie says that every Christmas light before Thanksgiving makes him kill a baby reindeer.  Please, think of the baby reindeer and have a safe and Happy Holidays.

Precisely what I was expecting: a value-pack set of existing toys. This is what you go to Costco FOR.
