TFA Optimus & Megatron

Posted by:

With the U.S. election complete, it's time for the candidates to come together, put aside their differences and work toward the greater good of repairing America's international reputation and fixing the economy.  In this spirit of togetherness we unveil the Optimus Prime and Megatron Animated deluxe 2-pack!  Okay, so it's not exactly "Peace Treaty OP and Meg" but you get the idea.  This set is now linked to and available in the 2008 Transformers Section.

MP Megs wasn't released in the U.S.. That's why it's not included.

Err, the US President can't fix the economy because
A:You can't command the economy to go fix itself.
B: It's not a USA problem, it's international and mostly rooted in Europe.

regarding A.)
In my admittedly not-expert, but somewhat educated opinion, stock market volatility is fuel by self-fulfilling prophecy of the general population's optimism/pessimism.

I believe that the country's outlook is fueled by historically (justifiably) low opinion of our current presidential administration. I believe that a change in leadership (regardless of whether it was Obama or McCain who had won) will create a sense of optimism and HOPE among the general population. For the economy, I think this is a generally good thing. The extent to which it can help, remains to be seen. Here's hoping for the best for all.

Regarding B. I don't agree with this statement at all.

Enough about the election already! Go discuss that stuff on another website. Politicians make me want to spew up all the energon I ate today.

Anyways, I like these figures better than Voyager OP and Megs. I know the Prime mold is pretty much the same, but they're both more show accurate.

im sorry but this is so off topic. Ive been watching beast wars a lot recently and i began to wonder: If the Maximal technology was so much more advanced compared to the Autobots, then why didnt they just build a space bridge and get themselves back to Cybertron, then zip back to earth with some reinforcements to capture the Preds?

Well Autobutt, there are several possible reasons for that.

While their technology was far more advanced, since they were stuck on prehistoric Earth, they probably didn't have the neccessary materials needed to build a space bridge.

Plus, wouldn't they need someone on the other end to build a space bridge for them to teleport to? That's what Shockwave did in G1. Megs made the Earth one, and Skywave made the Cybertron one.

And, if they did build a space bridge, it would likely take them back to Cybertron... in 3 million B.C.. Space Bridges transcend space, not time.

Ahh thanks for the explanation SB. Well to make up for that off-topic comment ive seen peaugh's review for these figures on youtube. The OP fig is pretty much the same as the rest, but the Megs has a somewhat..lazy transformation. Although the Megs figure isnt that strong he kinda has the best cannon placement/moveability.

It may have been off topic, but at least it was about Transformers and not politics.

I hate painted on battle damage. That said, I think these two may be the best Prime and Megs of the TFA line. I really do like these figs!

I left lunch in the microwave too long then it started glowing the energon purple. I ate it and I feel like I just drank a whole coffee shop.
