    It's certainly tempting, but I'll probably pass on him. That is, unless I see him on some extreme clearance later this year. I'm happy with my Voyager Optimus (Defender repaint of the TF1 mold). I just need to get a Megatron for him, lol (hoping to get a hold of the GatN repaint).

    The classics-style one that came with a deluxe Megatron. Everyone seems to hate that one.

    On the other end of the spectrum, Deluxe Classics Optimus is my favorite Transformer Ever. Would love to see one with a chrome bumper and grill ala Masterpiece Prime.

    On the subject though, yes I've been interested in Deluxe DOTM Prime. Since I'm getting all Cyberverse characters, Deluxe Prime would be perfect for an in-scale set of Autobots.

    I was going to get him, but I don't see the need to now that I have HftD Battle Blades Prime.

    My friend, you should consider getting Battle Blades Prime (or the DotM two-pack retool). He is sooo much nicer. :D

    In truck mode, yes. In robot mode he looks amazing and has fantastic posability.

    As for the DOTM Deluxe, I think I'll pass. If I do get a movie Prime it'll either be Cyberverse or Leader.

    I am, just because Prime is awesome and I'd love to have him at that scale. The only thing I don't like is the shorter sleeper cab and the short smokestacks.

    I'm honestly not a fan of the mold. Probably doesn't help that I'm not a fan of the RotF Leader figure anymore. I'd rather have something simplified and fun, rather than something that's overly detailed and impossible to transform.

    I totally agree Ratchet,just the darker gray plastic and the stars and moon on Prime make him the best Prime ever made IMO.

    Got him yesterday, he's excellent. Range of motion is great. Only flaws are the backpack not being very secure, hard to balance because he lacks ankle joints, only has feet swivels/rocker, and he is band in robot mode due to lack of paint. Very fun to pose, great transformation and I like where his mechtech and c clip hardpoints are.

    I'm planning on getting him, would like to have a cheapo version of DotM Prime. Leader Prime is Mr. High-End, this guy is for smashing into Megatron repeatedly. :D

    I have too many Optimi as is.

    He's kinda ugly, bare at least. I'ma stick to the Nightmare Moon Prime. And my various Leaders.

    I picked up the deluxe prime today, and I like him better than the voyager in both bot and vehicle mode. The backpack is the only downside.
