Sale Alert: Platinum Edition "One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall" set for $38.42 on Amazon

Before the current "Generations" line existed, there was a small series called "Classics" which launched the modern day line of toys that took G1 characters and updated them with modern day toy design. In this initial line Optimus Prime was a truck and Megatron was a blaster, as it should be! Last year these two figures were given snazzy new decos and released as a Platinum Edition two pack. Now the set has gone on sale (again) at Amazon for the low price of $38.42!

While some dismiss him as a disorganized old 'bot, he holds knowledge many Transformers cannot conceive of! Check out my review of "Titans Return" Alpha Trion.
