It's also called a trailer on the packaging. I'll admit it, I bought these. If they make an Optimus Prime with a trailer I buy it nearly every time. Then I figured I might as well have a Megatron too! This is a very slippery slope!

I was at 2 Targets today, and while they had the pegs and prices up for these guys, the pegs were empty. Good news is they are only 7.99.

Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

I actually caved last night and got myself a starscream. It's ok, but it doesn't feel like a 5 dollar toy at all. If they've made one of your favorite characters, I'd recommend getting one. They're not terrible, but the pricing for me kills my interest in getting more.

If anything I can use it to make my own bot-shots game, involving shots of 40 proof liquid.

Didn't see the launchers, but unless there are any out aside from Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, Barricade, the clear Sentinel, and the three packs that have Prowl, Bumblebee, and Sentinel and Megatron, Acid Storm, and Nemesis Prime in the other I got them all tonight.

In Canada, at Walmart, they are 11$+tax. I bought both Optimus and Megs with their launchers/trailers. Both are awesome looking and pretty fun too!

After that, I went to TrU and bought Starscream, Bumblebee, and Sentinel Prime.

I love them. They are fun and cute!
