Oh my... that actually looks decent.want.
Yeah, there really needs to be a widely available version of this mold, with flames on his chest and regular eyes, so he can be used for both TLK and AOE. Not sure about silver paint. I never like it in large quantities but I'd live with it.
Looks great! I'm in!
Absolutely. And with the correct colour sword and shield. I still don't know why the regular voyager couldn't have been similar to this with the blue skirt armor instead of the blue collar and without the silver on the crotch piece. Where it appears they've left a lot of grey instead of painting it silver this doesn't look like it uses any more paint. They could've done a blue eyed version with the weapons left mostly grey as the regular release and could still have this version as an exclusive.
Looks pretty nice but I'm holding out for the Movie Masterpiece version.
Looks nice, but if I do get this mold, it'll have to have a more accurate paint job. If this version had the flames on the arms, I may have sprung for it.
I wish hasbro had a premium line.. or at a couple of very accurately painted exclusives.
What could've been. Even with the weapons and torso left largely unpainted it would've been an improvement:
You know the mpm Optimus is his first trilogy design, right?
Those who are worried of not getting an accurate paint version...don\'t cos this is basically evasion prime for tf5. Wave 1 isn\'t officially out yet and there is already 3 versions announced (regular, Taiwan exclusive, Takara exclusive). I predict a Sdcc version and a black knight Takara equivalent later
I believe the Taiwan is just a lucky draw (1 produced for a contest?)
But there may be a platinum version like a versus pack or autobot unite V2 set down the line. (just personal speculation)
I just found it the shield is actually blue
In 2007 the standard paint job wouldn't be far off this. Such a shame.
Anyway if this is easily available on the aftermarket and not too much it'll be worth picking up.
Mmm grape-flavoured sword. My favourite.
I need it.
Nice figure I'll wait for other versions of prime figures see how they look still undecided if I will by prime figure
It looks good but there's still a considerable room for improvement. And we'll get the perfect version sooner or later, I can wait.
Damn that actually looks better in those colors...and Id expect it to be the regular Takara retail version which might be announced soon.
Looks better than the regular voyager, but it's still missing a lot of paint apps. I'm really enjoying my custom painted hasbro one, since it's a pretty great mold, but this isn't the type of leap in quality we got between AoE leader OP and Armor Knight OP. Looks like Reprolabels is the way to go on this one.
Seriously. I was just thinking this. Weijiang took a sweet figure and made it into a masterpiece! I really hope they do their thing with this guy. Here's what I would do:
-Make the backpack fold up more (doors fold inwards, top of cab has one or two extra hinges)
-Add wrist and ankle articulation, and re-engineer the transformation so that the knees get some extra bend
-Paint the damn thing
-Make the shield more robust and transformable, and add a space to peg it onto his back
We can hope. Don't really know what the whole thing with the regular version being the TRU Japan exclusive. You'd think they want to make it more desireable.
Damn I was waiting on a wide release evil repaint of Optimus.. but I may have to get this one..
