    Interesting...

    The moon image in the windshelds is a neat idea, but the stars all along the alt-mode just look stupid.

    Oh wow, not bad. I'm so torn about it though, since I already have both figures...but I love the deco on Prime. I MIGHT get this...I just don't know yet.

    There have been some questionable deco choices as of late with those two packs a little while ago, but I am at a loss for words.

    I mean putting stars and a faux moon as a play on Dark of the Moon? Really? It seems like they're just trying to get some True Blood fans in on this.

    They had me at the dark gray instead of light gray in robot mode. Then they lost me at the painted-over windshield. And the sparklies on the sides of the truck left me shaking my head in disgust....

    To be honest, when I first saw those images(before the boxed one turned up), I thought it was a joke.

    I actually want this, Comettor ain't bad, Landmine always kicked ass, and aside from the tacky stars/moon painted on, the other paint apps, being metallic, and darker, coupled with the unmasked head sculpt AND hook swords, appeal to me.

    This will be the ROTF-Optimus-In-The-Woods for me.

    I think the sparkles can be removed with rubbing alcohol. Otherwise, the paint job looks great to me.

    Comettor got BIG, woo!

    And yeah, one or the other would make it iffy, but both the hooks AND the sparklies do it for me on this Prime, since I never thought just the hooks justified me buying the Leader Prime "repaint". I'm gonna eternally have him in a "TOOO THE MOOOOOOON!" pose.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't getting this mostly for Comettor, though. Though the 'Bonus value" to me implies that this thing will be $25 max, maybe $20.

    Not a bad little redeco. And the reflection painted in Prime's windshield are just goofy enough for me to really want this pack.

    Comettor? its been a while since we seen that name,since Armada Commetor.

    Might Think of Getting Starstruck Prime with Commentor The Second (Even though he's Rattletrap colored.)

    *I hope the "Starstruck Prime" name Catch on soon.*

    I have to wonder if they're trying to cross promote with the Pony fans with this Moonlight Sparkle Prime.
