    He's been out for a few weeks. I prefer the original MUCH more.

    Are you talking about the leader class one or the deluxe? The deluxe has been out for a while, I don't remember if the leader has been sighted or not.

    I saw the Leader class repaint (Galaxy Force) only once, 2 weeks ago. Since the box was damaged, I left it on the shelf. Oh...this is Upstate NY.

    Good for you. It's not really news worthy. Thankfully, this is not news. Still, this does not belong here. It belongs in your state's sightings thread. You've been here long enough that you should know this by now.

    Looked plenty black to me when I saw it, but maybe you have to get it out of the package and under bright light.

    Anyway, having seen it I will now always refer to him as Blactimus Prime. He's one bad motha- *Shut yo mouth*

    I past on the first one I saw on my trip last week because the paint application on him was bad. I saw a second one later that day with a better paint application and it even had an extra gun so I bought it. I like the colors but wish they had used the black and silver scheme they used on the Legends version.

    I saw it saturday but passed. It didn't interest me enough to spend 40 for a very similar repaint. But I also held off on Galvatron and can't find him anywhere now.

    Im hoping you're right and that there's 2 different versions out, or a corrected one later on.
    I swore up and down mine was black until I put him under a lamp, he's definitely dark brown. I keep double checking hoping it's just my eyes going bad lol

    Bought him several weeks ago and think he's great! I wish they had used this darker red on the original - and on Classics Prime, for that matter.

    I agree,I'm tempted after getting him taking down My other Cyp leader Op due to display space and put him up. :thumb

    Just saw it at target a bit ago...VERY unimpressive to me. The gold key and planet key symbols on the shoulders are a nice touch, but the completely black head...and the black overall looked absolutely god-awful. I wasn't going to be buying it anyway, but I think they could have done a hell of a lot better for the Prime repaint. Especially after Gavlatron, I NEVER buy the Megatron repaints but I absolutely HAD to have that.

    The Energon series taught me a valuable lesson. I never buy the original paint scheme Megatron until I see how the repaint looks. The last two series, Galvatron has looked 10 times better.
