Final Thought

Overall, I think these figures are great and capture that nostalgic feel of the 80s toys. The tech specs on the back of the box are a nice addition. I love that Starscream comes with Megatron in gun mode as an accessory! The price point at $33.99 is a little high in my opinion, but I can’t wait to have these in hand!
