What I'd like to know is, does he come with a weapon or not? I could care less about Chronicles G1 Prime, so I'm curious.

$30 ? Really? Wow! I may just get the deluxe figure by itself because I cannot see myself paying an extra $20 for a trailer which will just be put away and not displayed.

only reason i could think of to buy it is to sell it later in 10 or 20 years

Here's a crazy idea. You might want to sit down for this. What if... you bought the cab AND the trailer... and you... (wait for it)... DIDN'T put the trailer away, but instead... DISPLAYED IT?!? :shock: Did I just blow your mind?

Maybe it's just me, but I think any TF display is improved by the presence of an OP trailer.

Kind of off topic a wee bit, do you guys think it's worth getting this or saving up and getting the Optimus Chronicle's bundle?

You're not getting it:

Walmart Deluxe Optimus Prime + Chronicles Trailer

That's all there is to it.

So, this comes with wheels? How much does this costs? Will we get this in the U.S.?

Uuugh, so confusing.

Nothing like a little bit of sarcasm to brighten the day...

An extra $20 is more than I was hoping to spend for the trailer. I'm hoping they go on sale quickly, I'll buy it for 20 or 25.

FWIW the cab has slightly different colors and paint apps from the original Walmart Deluxe OP.

For one who can't get any Deluxe Optimus here in the UK, it does look quite cool!

I was aiming to get the Chronicle sets so I can have a G1 Optimus & Megatron, but looking at eBay, I don't think I'll bother! XD

Hopefully Toys 'R' Us or someplace will do the usual thing and import 'US-exclusive' stuff, not realising the significance of it (hey, they've done it before with Star Wars and Transformers)!

$30 yeah ill pass, as much as id like to get one just to keep in the box and sell off in a few years i dont need this overpriced thing clogging precious shelf or closet space. If the Prime itself were better than id think about it but the deluxe prime is just so bad its not worth it. Only way id buy deluxe prime is if it were on clearance for $3 just for parts.

lol, so many people complaining about the price. That's the price of a Voyager in Canada! Looks like a Voyager's worth of plastic to me. If I was into this deluxe Prime mold I'd be interested but he's too out of scale.
