    Darker colourscheme looks substantially better in my personal opinion...

    *EDIT* Great buy however!...

    Oh well.

    Pretty interesting... I think I like the final deco more but it'll make the test shot a tad more valuable.

    Hey, you bought it for a reasonable price! Congrats!
    (+ unreasonable shipping, but oh well... :)  )

    Wow... now all those people who paid through the nose bidding on the early test shots get to have a chuckle... they're getting the far more attractive Test Shot version. It makes a huge difference... I was kind of hoping that the darker version we've been seeing around would be the final, but no such luck. Meh.

    I prefer the test shot. The legs and roof of the cab are missing the flames but the paint apps on the chest are better. You gotta wonder if this is another Japanese vs. American release.

    I'll miss the darker colors, but the silver and the more-movie-accurate flames on legs in robot mode more than make up for it, in my opinion.

    The final version is actually growing on me as I continue to compare them. The beige-y plastic looks a lot nicer in the final version.

    Here's hoping the Japanese versions will be chromed in all the right spots.

    The darker color looks nicer.

    However, the face sucks. It's not the most offensive of the movie faces, but what's with giving Prime a beak?

    Was turning the mouth plate down really necessary?

    P.S. Although this one looks less messy than the larger Prime, you can't go wrong with either. Great Alt modes and cool robot modes.

    Wow....paint apps usually aren't usually a factor to me in the least, but it's not even funny how much worse the final version is compared to the test shot. The darker colors and added apps really helped the toy. Oh well, looks like I'll be getting the Leader class version afterall.

    They both look unfinished to me. I'm glad they painted the gray parts silver (although some chrome would have been nice), but overall the brighter colours and continued lack of detail in robot mode still has be unimpressed.
