    I hope that means it's coming to the US here soon, I've been wanting this repaint since I first saw pics of it. I acually like these colors compared to the origional, anybody agree with me? This is also my favorite Optimus mold ever, even though it doesn't look like a Fire Truck as much as RID Optimus did, it's still a very cool design. I hope they ship more Galvatrons with this dude, I haven't seen one in over a month.

    I've had the original for over a year and it is better. Pass.

    They're both about the same for me, and I already have an original. Good news for those who want him, though.

    I thank Hasbro and their Cybertron Bendy Prime with planet symbols for killing my last piece of interest in buying that thing.

    The original is way better. Those symbols are fruity as hell, and the red guns look cheap.

    :peoples:  "Fruity"?

    That's 'cause red paint/plastic is cheaper than black or gray, right?

    The symbols do look like they could be found floating in a bowl of Lucky Charms.

    i kinda wish they'd replaced all the silver from the original with gold, would have been a bit more interesting (+ red, Gold and black is a nice pallette), and the red guns look pretty terrible.

    I like the colors better than the original. But I already have the original and don't like them THAT much more. If I didn't have the original, I'd buythis guy. But I do, so I won't.

    I'll be buying this guy simlply for the fact that I will display the first release in its basic form without the add-ons like the trailer and Wingsaber and have this guy standing behind him with all the armaments applied. Picturing it in my head it seems like it would look pretty sweet. plus the Bio rocks.

    I have actually had to double take a couple of couple a times the past few weeks because I thought I saw it but all it was was a few stores near me have been clearing old stock out from the back and putting the original on shelves again. However, Except for Alts. I try not to buy repaintes over a deluxe and since it is too close to the original I think I will pass. I would have bit if it were all black but that is the only way.

    Yeah, but then they'd be "frosted", not "fruity". :D

    There's no distinction between frosted and fruity at the gay bars I've been to.

    Cheap drinks though!
