While Transformers Power of the Primes Rodimus Unicronus was the first wave 2 toy found at US retail (once again, the US being the first country for a sighting), no one made a video review. Until now that is, since Peaugh has now uploaded a review to Youtube. This toy has been showing up at Walmarts across the US.

For those unaware, Rodimus Unicronus may look like a Shattered Glass Rodimus, but is in fact a corrupt version of Rodimus, imbued with Unicron's influence through a dark Matrix of sorts - the Matrix of Chaos!

The video below goes takes us through this mustachioed evolved Leader class version, plus Nemesis Hot Rod, the smaller Deluxe robot/car, plus a comparison with the wave 1 Leader class Rodimus Prime, so check it out!

Alternatively, you could have told her he was $9.98, and just stuck one of the Battletrap figures under your shirt. Would have been the same difference, right?


Dude dont hate. I wish I had got that lucky and had a lady ask me the price. The guy basically paid what walmart paid for it. He deserves an award not online hazing for ousmarting the system. I had them scan a shrapnel, but im a grown ass man so I dont want no problems. But if dude got em for 5 bucks, he is the f**kin man in my book !


As a person who loves KOs, even I think it's a bit cheeky to give the wrong price to the shop staff. If it was a mistake on the customer's part, then fair enough. If the customer gave a false price, then that is akin to theft, or at least is immoral, surely?

That BB looks good. I wish they would remold the heads on this, the black AOE version and some other muscle car bots as I've of the micromaster patrols. Heck, I'd love to see the "drone" and b-list film hey figures repainted in unified colours (G1 generic seekers, all in black, micromaster patrols, etc) and sold in 3-packs.

I watched a review of Rodimus Unicronus a day ago, made by user SoundJack426. His was up before this one.

I am fairly certain it is considered fraud. Customers in the past have been in trouble for switching price tags. I would assume there is some leeway if the clerk asks you the price considering that if they don't know why would the customer know? Either way I really don't think purposefully misrepresenting a price is a good idea. Sure, walmart is kind of a scumbag corporation but I wouldn't want anyone to get into trouble over a figure.

Neat news about Blastoff having a clear Megatronus. But I hate individual -master guys since they don't really have a place to go. Rodimus Prime will go with LG-63 G2 Megatron's dragon dude, Thunderwing is with Nitro Zeus, and Scorponok with Tidal wave, but finding more guys to pair these guys with kinda sucks.




I kinda want to buy more Nitros for guys like Scorponok.

I almost did that today. I found one on clearance at Walmart for $21, but that was still just a little bit more than I wanted to spend. That may also mark the very first time I passed up on buying one that I found in-store, but I do already have one, and I also just dropped almost $50 w/ tax on Rodimus Unicronus today as well. But hey, I resisted buying a transformer, baby steps.

I thought I got the wrong thread for a moment so I kinda got confused myself. Too many tabs open over here. Must focus! :HEADHURTS:

The article here mentions it as one of the figures said to be a part of this line: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... ses/40658/

Getting there. It's mostly a want list but I can get overly excited if I want to. :KREMZEEK:


I don't have that many fembots but more are always welcome!


Not counting Minicons:

BW Airazor
BW Transmetal Airazor
BW Blackarachnia
BW Transmetal Blackarachnia
BM Blackarachnia
Energon Arcee
Cybertron Override
Universe(?) Fracture
Animated Blackarachnia
Animated Arcee
Prime Arcee
Prime Airachnid
R.I.D.2 Strongarm
T-30 Arcee
T-30 Chromia
T-30 Windblade
CW Torchbearers
TR Windblade
TR Nautica
PotP Slash

Plus 3rd party versions of Glyph, Arcee, Elita-1, and Solus Prime.

I had movie Fembots too, but I've sold at least half of my movie figures now.

Eventually I want to get Cybertron Thunderblast, some version of Strika (I wish they'd retooled CW Onslaught), and of course PotP Moonracer and Novastar. Still on the fence about PotP Elita-1. Edit: Want a Slipstream too.


Now THAT is a list! :x ;)^

Well they probably bought the figure for 2 or 3 bucks in bulk quantity and still made a profit at $4.99 so f**k em. If they wanna make $$$ they need to get their s**t together and not make stupid errors on the scanner codes. Besides walmart is a fortune 500 company. Think about the hundreds of millions they will make in stock buy backs after those Trump corporate tax cuts. So let it trickle down to the little guy one way or another. $4.99 legends, f**k it lol. Remember Im the guy who took a shrapnel to the counter to scan and paid full price. But I live in miami where the store workers know better. If somewhere in middle america store workers are really gullable and let you name youre price, thats on them. Buddy named his price. He didnt shove it under his shirt. He bought it fair and square.there was actually a time when a legends figure was 5 bucks. Everybody complains about the rising prices and the increased hollowness to save anyways.

So, intentionally misrepresenting a price is "fair and square" to you huh? That actually explains a lot more about you than anything else.

You cant argue with a reciept. Whether he was smart or the cashier was stupid is irrelevant. The bottom line is he paid for it.

People on here whine and b**ch about rising prices, hollowed out plastic, crappy decals, and poor distribution. But the one time the little man one-upped the corporate giant everyone cries foul... :BANG_HEAD:

After I open some of these poor QC figures, I feel like Hasbro owes me money... [-(

After the coverage of in-hand images for the latest voyagers in the Transformers Power of the Primes toyline, namely Hun-Gurrr and Elita-1, as you can see respectively here and here, we have another collection of images for the Carcerian/Autobot commander who will kill you with her forearms, and a silent video review, both courtesy of Atto Kempler on Facebook and YouTube. The images, partially mirrored below, also show comparisons with other figures from the line, such as Optimus Prime, Grimlock and Starscream.



In addition, YouTube user Shaxitron has uploaded a video review of the Terrorcon double-headed torso Hun-Gurrr, after picking up the voyager at a Walmart store, and shows off robot, creature, and combiner torso mode on camera. Check it all out, and head to the Energon Pub to discuss!

I'll tell you whats truly fraud... some of you grown ass men, waiting early in the morning to take 5+ of the toys off of the shelves and reselling them online for double of what they are worth, so stop trying to badger folks because they were able to get it cheaper. I'm very irritated with people acting as if they are perfect to the core when you are probably one of the most vile persons to walk the earth but you just haven't been exposed yet. The clerk should have done their job and looked it up. He didn't steal anything, he has a receipt to prove it

It's theft no justification for it the guy lied to get a plastic toy for cheaper.

If he got caught he would of gotten into a lot of trouble want to know why?

Because it's wrong he committed a crime and that's that.
