    The fuel tanks are just half-painted, and those windows are atrocious in truck mode!

    Well, mistransformed backs are a bit of a tradition for this character. Remember the ROTF box?

    Looks great, will buy. Hopefully they do the original 5.

    I loved the Leaders with HAs, but these definitely look better.

    Yeah, the amount of unpainted silver parts really is a letdown. The gun, other side of the fuel tanks, the little toolboxes by the rear wheels, they should all be silver.

    What I was saying was that the gun is a different color in that pic than in all the other pics, obviousely none of these color schemes are final.

    This must be the most shoddy MP reveal in HISTORY!!! Wake me up when Takara reveals it.

    I feel like we've (or I have IMO) been spoiled by the ROTF Leader mold. I was hoping to be wowed by this release but I feel it's "meh." Don't get me wrong it's loads better than the initial Leader class of 10 years ago and is a good interpretation of his character from the same movie. But I'm not going to rush out and get it on it's release. I'll wait on a sale.

    Aside from the box pic, both the on display model and official photos show the gun as the same gunmetal as the unpainted parts of the robot. Only the official photos are touched up to make it look shinier.

    I forgot that the pre-production ROTF Prime had those collapsible rear wheels on the hips.
