Just picked up Weaponizer Optimus Prime & Bumblebee.

I found them at my local Target for $29.99 and I must say aside from what I've heard others say I like this prime. Yes he could use some silver paint and he does have a hefty backpack however his gimmick is rather decent and his size works well. I believe he's priced right for what you get. Funny thing is I hear many like Weaponizer Bumblebee but I found that to be completely opposite for me. The plastic feels very cheap unlike Optimus and things like a unneeded lever on the hood to activate weaponizer mode hurts this figure, just doesn't sit well with me in any mode. I say $20 go for it but $30 just feels rude of Hasbro. Who knows maybe he'll grow on me.

I thought about getting the Prime. I am going to wait for the First Edition though. They look so much better than the Weaponizers.

But small, Optimus needs to tower over others and Weaponizer Prime does that.

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
How's the poseability for OP? Does the backpack throw off his balance? I think that's my real concern. Otherwise I would agree that $30ish for a larger Prime is a good price.

Weapon: Acid Spray Gun
He's not bad. Looks great from straight on, good poseablity, huge backpack doesnt seem to hamper balance much if any. Do wish his feet and gun weren't that prototype white/gray colour.
Pretty good for $30. Seems a little too big to me to display with most other Prime toys.

I'm waiting for a sale or another one of my extra 5% off certs from my Target Redcard before I get Optimus. I want to see if I can mod his cannons to not go out so far in alt mode, so it looks more like the box art, instead of sticking WAAAAY out, looks silly.

Def want though. Bee, maybe, but my daughter will def want him, and I'm not sure I can justify buying two of them to my wife.
