    Lets move to the figure

    I'm sure most of you are familiar with this toy so I will skip the articulation/Transformation details. However, the QC on this figure is outstanding, nothing is loose and all the paint applications seem to be correct.


    This deco of Animated Optimus Prime has instantly jumped to the top of my favorite Black Convoy repaints. Whereas other Black Convoys have a touch of red, this figure has enough Red to really take it above and beyond what has been done in the past. The figure is mainly black (obviously) with red eyes, lights, and windshield. The other colors used on this figure are teal and silver.

    In conclusion, its well worth the asking price of sub 200:lol . This item is not going to be as elusive as once believed so think twice before dropping 200+ on this figure. With that said, who knows what the asking price for this figure will be in the future so if you want one, get it now. I think Takara/Tomy plans to sell this figure at a few more events so you didn't miss out yet. If you really want one, they won't be that hard to find.

    That is pretty good if you ask me. I paid 140 for mine shipped so 10 bucks more isn't bad at all.

    The red windows on the chest look awesome. I love this mold and will definitely be picking it up with the black colors.

    Thanks. He looks fantastic, though a bit too expensive for me.
