    The monochrome version is great looking. Far superior to the other one in my opinion. If the toy itself were more articulated and larger I might be willing to get this version

    I whole-heartedly disagree with you on this, respectfully. The colored version is far superior, the colors are so rich. I understand a B&W Mickey, but not Convoy...doesn't make sense. (Not that this figure makes much sense in the first place.)

    The Colored version flew off the shelves, the B&W one is a shelf warmer.

    I too prefer the colored version over the monochrome. Though there's no denying it's a unique toy. IMO the alt mode fits very well with the Nemesis Primes:thumbs2:

    Thanks bro, they're not must-gets, but truly unique toys. When was the last time we got a B&W TF?
    Hahaha, enjoy it bro:p

    Still think thats the best use of a trailer I've seen yet.
    Hope that some future versions of Prime will incorporate the idea.

    Unless you are reviewing it for the Japanese audience, please use widely availible products for size comparison. Most people in North America do not have Alternaty figures or Masterpiece Grimlocks so comparing to them really give no indication of size. Use a Classics figure or Cybertron figure since they are out everywhere by now.

    Ne-mouses Prime, I see.

    I don't like these guys are so darn small for the price, but i'd still buy it if I found in Disneyland or something.

    Nice review. I was worried we would get 10 minutes of size comparisons when you said "Size comparisons". I like the monochrome because it looks like the old Steam Willie cartoons.

    Good video and picks, but I'm more than happy with just the color version.

    good review, looks like its made of good materials, sturdy construction. Not to fond of the monochrome colors though. interesting gimmicks. way to show off your grimlock, comparison showed he is a large figure.

    Bought it slightly cheaper than the colored version, not sure whether that's the official retail price.
    Thanks for the advice bro, definitely will in the next review

    Hmmm.... Not sure the point of the review was to give you an exact size comp. There were previously released images that show that. He's small, okay. Plain and simple. And I think that's great, personally. How big do you want Optimouse prime to be anyway? :crazy: 

    I for one LOVE the Black, White and Grey version. So classic and sophisticated looking. Very fresh and unique. Both colored versions are nice, but I have to say I prefer this one best.

    Nice review! And GREAT pics! Although I don't know why you're getting you're beautiful and expensive toys dirty on the grass and earth!! Keep them clean!

    LOL
