    I had that goal of obtaining all transforming molds of Movie Optimus Prime (I don't want the repaints) before the official May 1st/June 2nd release dates, and with the help of y2jversion1, I will succeed!

    Protoform Optimus Prime (MOSC) : 02/05/07
    Cyber Slammer Optimus Prime (loose) : 02/05/07
    Fast Action Battler Optimus Prime (loose) : 02/05/07
    Voyager Optimus Prime (loose) : 04/16/07
    Legend Optimus Prime (loose) : 04/30/07
    Leader Optimus Prime (MISB) : sometimes this week

    Also succeeded with Starscream :

    Fast Action Battler Starscream (loose) : 02/09/07
    Voyager Starscream (loose - defaced - numbered) : 02/13/07
    Protoform Starscream (MOSC) : 04/17/07
    Legend Starscream (loose) : sometimes this week

    Trying to do it with Megatron, should be much tougher though (if not impossible, I'm running out of time) :

    Voyager Megatron (loose) : 03/27/07
    Legend Megatron (loose) : 04/30/07
    Fast Action Battler Megatron : it's out there, just need to find one
    Leader Megatron : no one seems to have it yet

    What about the deluxe Prime and Screamer:

    2038 TRA MOVIE DELUXE STARSCREAM 6-53569-11114-6
    2035 TRA MOVIE DELUXE OPTIMUS PRIME 6-53569-11108-5

    They appear to be distinctly different toys from the deluxe class protoforms (although conceivably they could be repaints):

    2218 TRA PROTOFORM DEL OPTIMUS PRIME 6-53569-24048-8
    2219 TRA PROTOFORM DEL STARSCREAM 6-53569-24049-5

    Still, though, I'm totally jealous of your collection...

    More than a month buddy...

    Protoform Optimus Prime (MOSC) : 02/05/07

    So roughly 3 months.

    Cyber Slammer Optimus Prime (loose) : 02/05/07

    Not part of wave 1 (Barricade & Bumblebee are wave 1 apparently), meaning it won't get released until July or even later, so at least 5 months, or 4 months if Prime ends up being wave 1 too.

    Fast Action Battler Optimus Prime (loose) : 02/05/07

    Roughly 4 months.

    Voyager Optimus Prime (loose) : 04/16/07

    Part of wave 3, so not until at least August, so at least 4 months.

    Legend Optimus Prime (loose) : 04/30/07

    Not part of wave 1, so at least 3 months.

    Leader Optimus Prime (MISB) : sometimes this week

    3 weeks in advance.

    Cost is no object here. As for the other deluxe listing, we still don't know what it is, could well be just Protoform Prime with a different SKU. AFAIK, it happened in the past that the same toy had 2 different SKUs of a re-release in a later wave.

    See at first, I thoguht those deluxes where gonna be new molds of them(Prime and Starscream) in their Earth forms, but then people said they're just gonna be the Protoforms again, which sucks for me cuz I really wanted Earth Mode Deluxes of Prime and Starscream.

    And it gives me a headache, cuz I dunno what's true or not.

    I'm praying for another Starscream earth mode toy, because I love the design but the Voyager's jet mode really sours me on the toy...

    I meant have the collection complete a month early...which technicaly you haven't accomplish yet, but I was being generous.

    Sorry, but I still don't get why some people are so impatient and just can't wait for the release date. Especially for these.

    Because the movie toys are superior in every way to the toys released in the past 3-4 lines. :)  And they're attached to a blockbuster...

    And I assume he got some Prototype's of the toys, so they might be worth something later on.

    Megatroptimus- congradulations! I really do appreciate you getting these and sharing them with us early. I am looking forward to getting them all myself but it was nice living vicariously (if that's how you spell it) through you at times.

    :useless 

    Congrats man, but really, why talk about it and not show it?

    I'm passing on the movie line, partly to make up the bottom line for getting the Botcon figs, but I love seeing pics of them.

    They're sort of "roleplay" toys, not actual Optimus Prime transforming figures.

    Still, they're movie Prime figures, and the blaster does transform. I guess the thread just misled me because it said: "Movie Optimus Prime collection : complete!", so I naturaly thought it meant all of them. But this is close.

    Yeah, I don't collect roleplay stuff or statues. But I will get the Prime helmet for sure, it will make for a nice geeky display piece!

    I'll take a picture of all 6 Primes when I get the last one.

    In your opinion, which Optimus would be better to get? Voyager, Legend, or Leader?
