The Transformers Asia website shows the first teaser images of APS-01 confirming that he will come with his stealth mode shield and double blaster gun, what other surprises lay in wait we don't know yet but be sure this guy is going to be the ultimate movie Optimus Prime laying waste to those that came before him

    I just want a preorder up on RK or BBTS so I can get it added to my list.

    I do love me some new Leader Prime... especially one with lots of paint and chrome :)

    Metallic paint and chrome huh? This one's going to be getting the premium level treatment - can't wait to see how wallet-shatteringly awesome it looks!

    That just increased the demand by a thousand times. That, plus the Asia Exclusive tag on it, means I have a slim-to-nothing chance of getting this. :(  :(  :(

    Count me officially interested. I'll preorder as soon as somebody gets a pre order up.

    I hope the metallic paint doesn't just look goofy.

    I hope the mold features something new and that it's not just a straight repaint...

    If this is the APS01 (First in the line), does that mean that more premiums are coming? :bay

    seeing as the dotm buster jetfire combo is running around $250 or $125/figure, throwing in the striker gear, a fair price would be somewhere south of $150

    Probably... I Think APS-02 is the premium version for Ejector. Chrome-out toaster mode with working electric plug and energon toasts.
