HasbroToyShop.com exclusive Megatron and Optimus Prime

Hasbro is doing something pretty cool by offering these two color schemes as HasbroToyShop.com exclusives.

TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE Deluxe Class: Special Edition MEGATRON

MEGATRON, an evil, destructive tyrant bent on total domination of the universe and all its resources, led his DECEPTICONS on an endless war of conquest. For millions of years their battle has raged like fire across the galaxy, and now they are here on Earth in a fight to the finish that will determine the fate of the planet and all it’s people.

Designed after the classic line look, this MEGATRON figure converts from robot destroyer to DECEPTICON vehicle, and back again! Originally created for the Asia market, this special-edition, HasbroToyShop.com exclusive is a great addition to your collection!

TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE Deluxe Class: Special Edition OPTIMUS PRIME

Long before the dawn of man on Earth, the war between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS raged. Two titans – huge metal warriors, each committed to total victory – emerged as leaders. OPTIMUS PRIME, wise, just and gentle despite having strength enough to move mountains, took command of the AUTOBOT forces, hoping to lead his people to peace and freedom.

Designed after the classic line look, this OPTIMUS PRIME figure converts from robot hero to AUTOBOT vehicle, and back again! Originally created for the Asia market, this special-edition, HasbroToyShop.com exclusive is a great addition to your collection!

Ha! I'm actually considering

Ha! I'm actually considering Overkill! I always loved the cassettes when I was little, and Overkill was one of my favorites because: 1) he was a T-rex and 2) he could actually splay his legs and was thus very stable. Sure, this new toy is just a repaint of Classics Grimlock, but they nailed the color scheme perfectly.

If they could somehow have worked big chrome guns on his sides, that would've been killer!

What? That's the best they can do?

What? That's the best they can do? More repaints? Give me a freaking BREAK!
I mean c'mon Hasblo. Show a little dignity. Give us Titanium WFW Prowl and Grimlock as 'swan song' collectibles on your online store. At least that will give the fallen American Chogokin TF some closure. Holy Moses, this crap is really an insult to my conscience if not my wallet.

Take it back HASBLO. I don't need anymore of this cheap garbage.

If I didn't buy these when

If I didn't buy these when they were flooding the shelves of my local Dollar General and other closeout stores for well below retail price,why would I now?
Take a look at Optimus's "truck" mode. That's not a transformer,you can see the transformation scheme just by looking at him,and his face is staring right at you,hoping you won't call him out on his pathetic ruse!
He's not a robot in disguise,he's a robot in an ill-advised yoga pose.
Hasbro should be embarrassed to release this.

SUCKS

This ugly repainted figures originally were the ULTIMATE BATTLE TWO PACK Optimus Prime and Tank Megatron.... very weak figures whit a very lame gimmick of circular punch. A reviewer in youtube (BIKERTRASHWOLF) Nickname the prime figure as SUCKTIMUS PRIME.... And the Megatron figure as horrible as it is, is the Highlight of the two...
