    Hey there.

    I remember seeing someone post the differences between the UK edition of Nightwatch Optimus (non-allspark package) versus the US All Spark edition. Does anyone else have the UK version of the Nightwatch leader Prime?

    I believe his plastic has different colors and a few paint variations. The box should also NOT have the blue allspark stuff, but I am having trouble finding a photo.

    Any help?

    Looks like I found it on wiki.

    This is the UK version. Note NO LIGHTNING BLANKA BLUE PAINT APPS

    I have the UK version. It is BeeeeeeYOOtiful in person. FAR superior to the U.S. version, in my opinion. It cost a bit more, but it was worth it to get the classier bronze paint in place of the electric blue.

    I believe that only the U.S. had the Allspark blue version. Europe and Asia had the gold version. It would be harder to find an AllSpark Power Nightwatch Optimus Prime in the UK. Can any UK people confirm this?

    I never saw the Allspark power one anywhere. Also, I'm fairly sure the UK Nightwatch Prime was an Argos exclusive too (not 100% sure though).

    I think you're right - I've never seen Nightwatch Prime anywhere else, and they're the only place that still has him in stock. They got Deep Space Starscream as an exclusive too.

    I saw Nightwatch for £12 in Argos a few months back. I'm now pissed off because I only just realised how awesome he is :mad

    I prefer the Allspark Blue one myself as well...and technicly the gold isn't the replacement for the allspark blue...it looks like black might be. Seems kind of boring actually...certainly not worth god knows how much extra to ship it to the US.

    I have the American version, & is much better. Good thing I live in America! If I didn't live in America, I couldn't have gotten the Allspark version. The Allspark version is better because it has more detailing. The UK version isn't quite as detailed and is a bit more plain.
