    The new head is awesome and I always liked accesories like swords etc. better than firing guns.
    I hope Megatron's new head gonna be just as awesome because I couldn't find both toys when they were crappy.

    Nice. I also missed out on the initial releases, so I'll probably be picking these up.

    The head looks great, the sword looks great; those two things alone make it worth purchasing. The truck mode looks about the same.

    But wait... did they actually REMOVE paint apps from the legs? The first version has dark bluepaint on the hips and gold on the knee joints, neither of which are in this photo. Maybe they sacrificed it for metallic silver thighs?

    Bring on the Megatron pics.

    Cool. I'm tempted to get him when he comes out, though if I do get a Leader Prime, it'll probably be the Nightwatch repaint. I like that paintjob, though I'm hoping that they release a Robot Hereoes Prime in those colors (could easily be the Optimus Prime vs. Barricade set that was listed).

    Hmm, the colors don't seem any more impressive than the first release..
    The red on the shoulders has been replaces by a golden pain app, but he no longer has any gold or blue on his upper legs..
    Maybe if I see better pics and all his grey really looks shiney and stuff I'd bite.
    As is only the new head and the sword impress me, but I'm not sure if I wanna spend another $60 or so on this.

    yeah...

    I did notice that too, hopefully it won't actually come out this way, but if it does I'll still buy it anyway

    Meh, I don't see this as any better than the original. I've seen way better custom made swords on here. That plus the removal of some paint aps makes this crap. The new head is nice, but I don't see why anyone would buy this if they have the original one.

    Hmm...I got an extra leader class Brawl for Christmas. Maybe I have to do the old buy one and return the other routine?

    Just more proof that Hasbro loves us. Let's all give them a big, virtual bear hug.

    I fail to see what's better/different about this mold.

    I'm happy with my nightwatch prime...doubly so after removing the flame paint apps.

    And for chrissakes can they please get a photog who knows how to transform the feet properly??

    I honestly expected more. I don't think it's worth the additional purchase.

    Too bad too.

    no thanks I'm not paying 40 bucks for a figure I already own. The sword and the new head don't impress me that much. So now we wait for Megs...

    and why didn't it come like this to begin with?

    because Hasbro is juicing the consumer. Deep down inside, they're all asses.

    I wish there had been a way for this release to retain the gun and add the sword. :(
