    Yeah, $80 seems a little rough for this

    Uncle Billy on AE is $60 + $25.19 in shipping cost for a $85.19 shipped cost.

    Plus an additional $15 in shipping cost for about $80.



    Totally respect that members can throw their money wherever they want whether it be my rub deals or elsewhere - but best to compare apples to apples and include shipping costs.

    That price shipped is totally worth it once you get it in hand and see how well done it is. Although, if you're not a huge Classics Optimus fan, you should probably pass.

    Does anyone know if it would be difficult to change the head? I'm tempted to get it and take my chances on a parted out/damage MP prime showing up on eBay for cheap and switch out the heads...

    I researched the head swap issue as soon as JJ01 arrived, and the ideal swap is actually the SND Primo Vitalis kit head. It's just the right size and is already made for ball joints, unlike the MP-10 head, which would require a lot of modding due to the MP10 neck hinge design it's made for. The issue, of course, is trying to find an SND head loose from the upgrade kit. Also, the stock head on JJ01 does not have a screw to open it up for removal. It's all glued together, so that increases the chance of accidentally breaking it and rendering it unusable if a person isn't careful.

    Thanks for looking into this. Spending $55 for just a head and the fact the only way to remove it could break it pretty much kill the idea for me. I'm now trying to convince myself that the slightly awkward head on this figure will compliment the one on CW Leader Megs...

    A few pages back I posted some pics of the JJ01 head with a simple styrene face plate mod that gives it a more traditional Prime look. Its probably the simplest (and cheapest) solution for covering up the odd stock smiley chin face if it isn't your thing.

    Well for me he's going to be part of my Optimus/Megatron special collection (high grade Opti/Megs from various sources) I think he looks amazing with the Combiner Wars Megatron with DX9 upgrade kit that @ultraman zoffy posted pics of so I think that will be my pairing.
    I don't own Striker Manus but I have trouble getting past the Voyager size - I've been spoilt by all the MP-10 sized Optimus bots to the point that Voyagers struggle to cut it now. I have Planet X Jupiter and he's great and all but he's small amongst the other big bots and his head feels tiny.
    My worry is that the Maketoys guy's would be the same. But I'll probably purchase the Maketoys ones anyways because it's getting harder and harder to find decent Megatron's - plenty of companies doing KO's and Oversizes and new takes on Optimus but they're all pretty slow to release the matching Megatron (if they don't just skip it all together.) MMC's Reformatted is just about the only case I can think of where someones done a Megatron without even talking about an Optimus to go with it?

    hxli7777 on ebay? Just curious because that's about what I paid for mine from that seller.
    They shipped it immediately and it's already through US customs!

    His truck mode actually scales very nicely with Deluxe Autobot cars, if you care more about alt mode scale accuracy than robot mode TV scale.

    Looks like he gotten a little greedy. $76 with shipping but without a best offer option. Damn shame considering the short shipping time.
