yep if you like optimus you should pick up Hound and Sideswipe and Megatron and Soundwave, the entire line is totally the bomb. My only complaint is i have a hard time finding the ones i want at my local walmarts. OOH I forgot Ironhide, he is outstanding too.

I have the same problem today as I did in the 80's.

1980's Me:
"Those Transformers look awesome, but I can buy multiple Joe's for the price of one Transformer!"

Current day me:
"Those Transformers look awesome, but I can buy multiple BlackMajor figures for the price of one Transformer!"

Although the price gap differential is getting much closer.

I have a G1 Optimus that I got off eBay back in the late 1990's. I never had Megatron of any sort. But I'm not sure if I would ever transform them or just occasionally pick them off the shelf and say:

[Megatron voice] "It's over, Prime!"

[Optimus voice] "NEVER!!"

And I try to be aware whether others hear me talking or making sound effects with figures in my hands...

The only Prime I had as a kid was the Power Master Optimus. Man I miss that thing. Not so much of a cool toy now, but man he was back then. All my transformers got sold in yard sales, and the money was likely spent on more Joes. lol!

In my experience Wal-Mart normally gets the first 2 waves in good numbers, then they say F any other new waves and you will be panicking to find them there. It's best just to order them, and the rule about transformers is if you see one you want you must get it that day!! Because the next day it's gone.

And yes I still have my power master prime from childhood. He was a huge deal in those days, now he's just a brick on my shelf.
