    Great. Another black repaint. i wish they would start doing some Ultra Magnus colors for once. I think it would go over better than all these black repaints.







    Most likely will still get it.

    So it's a black Optimus with swords (not hooks) - I hope they choose a stronger plastic for the feet so they don't keep snapping like the original version.

    I was hoping black leader. Might have gone for it. Still love amazon prime though.


    May have to give this a chance.
    Ok. Thought it was yen, but then yen has 1 horizontal stroke. Its in yaun so its about 110-120 usd I think.

    Yes on the underside where they slide back at the heels they fracture where they slide back and forth due to the stress on the ankles.

    Black Amazon JP Prime is a bit cheaper than he was about $115.00 or so (Under £80.00) which is not to bad since he comes with a DVD and a Black Bumblebee - he's really cool looking combined with a normal Jetfire too.

    I might be totally wrong on this, but I have the feeling Hasbro has been kind of hesistant to release movie characters of alot of the more iconic G1 characters because they weren't sure if any of them would appear in movie2 and 3.

    I have the feeling we might finally get some movie Ultra Magnus, Prowl, etc. figures in future DOTM waves (or the future post-DOTM subline).

    But like I said, I could be wrong.

    So the truck's front bumper that slides out as heel supports can snap off just from the figure's weight? Damn, I'll just have to leave those parts in and remember to not pull them out. Thank you for mentioning this. I appreciate it when people forewarn others of potential breakages due to poor figure design.

    I like black repaints but I agree they are abused.

    Neat! That repaint will most likely be bought. :D 
    I love that Rotf Voyager Prime mould, so it's a done deal!
    Just need to get a pre-order offer from Bodhar2000 or some other member/s here!

    Welcome!

    I do get sucked in every time TakTom does black repaint of Prime, but yeah UM repaint would be nice, too. Just to see how movie Prime looks in white.

    ^Black repaints rock. It's a crime to be that good looking when a black repaint is released. Haters gonna hate! :lol 
    Amazon Japan DVD Prime/ Alternity Convoy Black/ Stealth Landcross are just some of my all time faves.

    They're likely never going to do Movie Optimus colored as Ultra Magnus in case they ever want to add Ultra Magnus to the movie franchise. As he'd likely be something based on his combined form rather than a white Optimus.

    That and TakaraTomy and Hasbro don't like to redeco Movie Optimus (or really any Optimus any more) into someone that isn't Optimus Prime.
