Were you collecting when Age of Extinction was around? That Optimus evolution set was the best way to get the classics mold.

Yup, this is what it goes for now http://www.ebay.com/itm/TRANSFORMERS-4- ... SwHPlWb3WC

I think it was about 45$ at toysrus. A great deal for some solid decos. Of course you would be stuck with a movie figure, but it was the best figure of that line.

I'll see if I can pick it up. And, for the record, I don't mind the movie figures, so I wouldn't be 'stuck' with it. But anyway, thanks for the tip. ;)^

No worries. Oh and if you dont mind loose toys, I am sure you can find a way better price for the set loose.

Yeah, that'd probably be the better idea since I'd tear it out of the box anyway. Alright, I'll see what I can find.

Hmmmmm... I want that Megatron but I don't really like that Optimus. $80 isn't too bad but I'd prefer $50 or $60 for the set. I'll have to wait for a sale.

I was so lucky with that set. Here in the UK it was incredibly discounted to £20 at TRU - which is just under the price of a Combiner Wars Voyager. So I basically got a slightly discounted Classics Optimus and a free representation of some psychopath that looks a bit like him

I don't have the Megatron mold, got the OP mold from the AOE 2-pack. For that price, I'd rather get Hegemon.
Re: Transformers Platinum Edition Prime Vs Megatron set now Available on Amazon.ca (1790961)
Posted by Kurona on May 19th, 2016 @ 5:50pm CDT
I'd personally rather wait for the TR Voyager because that looks like the best CHUG Megatron we've ever gotten, and miles ahead of nerfatron no matter how nice that deco might be.

Good news for all Americans wanting the new Platinum Optimus and Megatron set, titled "Transformers Generations Platinum Edition One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall". It is now available on Amazon.com. It was previously available on Amazon.ca for around $80 USD but this American listing is even cheaper than that, with a price of $74.99 USD. That is the price for the frustrating free packaging, standard packaging will cost $ 94.95 USD. Will any of you be picking it up? let us know!

Ok, I've really got to learn more about this frustration free packaging. Is it just wrapped in something and no box? Are there no tie-downs? What makes it $20-worth of cheaper?

I am curious too, Canada doesnt have this option for some reason.

Great figures bad repaints


They were amazing repaints. The AOE Voyager had the actual correct deco of what movie Optimus would have looked like when painted and the Classics one had the perfect G1 deco that only the Cloud Optimus surpasses.

Check these awesome repaints:

Agreed on the Evolution Primes. Those rock. But I'd say Cloud and Evo Classics Primes are trying to achieve different things. Cloud is toon accurate while Evo is toy accurate.

Exactly, though even with the toy accuracy angle, the Evolution set took several liberties, including gray upper arms, black shins, and black fists. The Cloud version gets these toy details right, with red upper arms, blue shins, and blue fists, even though it's actual aim is to be screen accurate to the G1 cartoon.

Looks like for Amazon, you get a brand specific brown box with the figures inside versus the actual box packaged inside a generic Amazon box. Seems good from a buying a toy for a kid perspective, bad from a collector perspective.
