    Looks good.

    I'm still thinking this may be a club exclusive.

    I watched about 5 of those on ebay and they kept ending at higher and higher prices. I want the at con exclusives, but am not sure I'll be able to compete in a bidding war. Somehow, I expect we'll see less of these on ebay after the con than we did Megatron last year.

    Man, that's good lookin'. It'd be nice to find one of those for cheap at some point.

    ...which will be, post-summer-2007, damn near impossible. :(

    I so hope this is a BotCon exclusive. I'll finally give my unfinished kitbash a rest.
    So, is the plastic on the wings soft? Could any of you take a picture of him with the shoulder pads down over his arms?

    The plastic on the wings is the soft type. Identical to the Cybertron Vector Prime's wings.

    Got mine today too (actually could have had it last Friday but wasn't home to sign for the package). It's better looking in person. The left shoulder pad on mine is a little loose. The wings and sword are of the floppy plastic variety. Other than that it's good quality. Ok, I just opened the battery cover and uh, there is no battery connectors. They took out the electronics functionality. I don't know if mine's a dud to where they forgot to put the electronics or it's just not meant to be there in this exclusive to begin. So others who have it, does your's have the electronics? Also, so I took my Vector Prime out to see what the electronics are anyways (cuz I never bothered to put the batteries in there to test it). I put batteries in but don't know what it is suppose to do. How do I activate the electronics?
