I'd pay that much for Classics Optimus alone.

Sorry, but still no for me.

OP looks dumb as a truck with those clear blue sections. It just does not work.

Megatron looks dumb as a robot with the grey sections. He could have been an excellent non-dragon Beast Machines Megs if they had just made him all red. So much wasted potential.

I've been hoping to get that Megatron for a decent price. I don't give to tosses about the Prime.

Motto: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes"
So...I got my LioKaiser a few days back. I am actually quite happy with it. I think I may have been fortunate. Most online reviewers talk about how loose and floppy he is (especially Desaurus), but somehow mine is super tight in all the joints, probably stands the straightest of any of my Hasbro CW Combiners. The only downside to me is Ion Scythe. I wish it would have came with an actual Legends class figure rather than a arms micron repaint. The thing literally fell apart in my hands as I tried to transform it, luckily there was no breakage. Reminds me of some el cheapo Monsuno toys one of my sons friends had a while back.

Dang it, I didn't know and thought I was gonna get a news credit. :(
As for Amazon, I have no way of ordering things from there, no credit card. :(

Having played with the figure for a few hours, I really like it (opinions about Beast Wars aside). I just didn't think he was gonna be so huge! Running outta room on my shelf because of him, but I don't mind. =D

Yep, he's a Surpreme class toy, which is a size class that currently is no longer in use, but back when it was, it was the one size above Leader class.

Though, the color scheme is disingenuous to how the character is meant to look. The original colors of the mold from its first release back in 2002 are a much more accurate representation of Optimus Primal's Beast Machines design:

Unicron came in today because my life is out of control. Mini-con collectors - this Kranix has a different red than the Amazon release. This is likely either good news or utterly depressing depending on how things are going for you lately.

How different is Unicron himself. Could you do one of your Scotty P trademark point form breakdowns with maybe some photos?

I tend to think of Armada Unicron's Mould and Giant Cybertron Starscream and Energon Omega Supreme & Cheetor as legit Supremes (possibly Primus as well but he's more debatable).

By that I don't mean by what they have written on the box but by the size of them.

The Old Leader size [Like Cybertron Metroplex] (or as I prefer "super" class) is more like the actual size of Optimus Primal's RID / YOTM body.

Super class being the size used for a lot of Optimus+Trailer toys in the 2000's If you compare he big monkey to them they match up well - but if you put him next to Unicron or Starscream he's much smaller.


There is not hard and fast rules here - I guess you could say Battle Ops Bee was a Supreme size too though.

Primus is tricky though as he's not quite in any size class he's a lot smaller than Unicron is for example.

In someways a modern Leader is barely bigger than an Ultra now. in a way when Hasbro made AOE Leaders so small they invented another size class really between leader and Ultra.

Which is why I favour using Super as a descriptor of the size of something a bit bigger like RID Optimus Prime or the AEC larger Optimus toys for example. 1st Edition AOE Optimus fits into that size range too though.

I realise I'm being inaccurate but otherwise the only other option I have is to be very picky in my language as say "Supreme Class" and not Supreme size when talking about Big Bot.

To me the supreme class is similar to the titan class. Not in scale, but more in the fact that it just means: Big toy one off. It was a catch all class to say that you were getting something big in a particular line, and thet Titan Class seems to do that too since they arent all the same size but share the distinction of being bigger much bigger than any other toy in the line and being a singular for the year.

Yup yup. Just curious, are the only ultimate class toys movie related?

Prime Beast Hunters had the disproportionately-sized Beast Hunter Optimus Prime and Beast Fire Predaking sold as Ultimate Class toys, but all other Ultimates were in the Movie lines, yes.

Motto: "Tell those damned kids to stay off my lawn!!!"
Weapon: Big Cannon
So I picked up the Autobot Heroes set off of Amazon the other day. I've had my eye on this set since it was first announced, as I've never had Arcee, and this version of Magnus came with freaking painted rims (cheap ass Hasbro :-x ). At $200+, however, it was a pretty disappointing pass. I eventually just bought the Takara Legends Magnus and just gave up on Arcee.

Then, with a random search, I found it for $119. Good enough for me. Magnus looks great, and Arcee is a little on the simple side for my tastes, but not to shabby, and a character that my collection is lacking. Blurr, and Kup are pretty easy sells. I have no interest in keeping them. Springer, well, I have to decide if I want to keep this one, or the Generations version.
