    The paper trailer looks pretty decent to me! Although I don't think I could build it so neat myself.

    More images from Snakas (Autobase Aichi) HERE

    Snakas speculates in his blog that the names of the new Cosmotector shield Microns might be the homages to some G1 characters.

    Pural = Prowl
    Sais = Sideswipe
    Jays = Jazz

    I can definitely see Jays resembling Jazz! Cool find. The names make more sense to me now :)

    It looks ok, the grey transparent plastic looks so much better than the blue from the original.
    I don't like the cardboard trailer, that's all I have to say about that.

    The darker plastic on Optimus is favored by me.

    I heard some buzz about this earlier, but I thought it was a joke. A cardboard trailer, really?

    They could of just done one big AM put together trailer that turns into a battle station.

    His price at TRU online was ¥3,999, and that is regular Japanese TFP Voyager price point. Considering he comes with 3 extra microns as well, I'd say a freebie paper trailer is a nice extra.

    I love it, up until you get to the black eyes. That disappoints me.

    That looks way better than the standard release, and more fun to play with.

    I'm digging the Nemesis Prime-esque colour scheme.

    I really hope the upcoming AM Nemesis Prime has SHOW accurate colours, otherwise I'll be kicking myself for not getting this one.

    they should have used the non faceplate head that is coming with the dark energon version. i think they would make this figure much more buyable.

    I like the individual release version of the shield much more than this bland 'gold' one.

    Well I'm glad I started making my own trailer because Hasbro obviously won't be producing one. I have to REALLY love these exclusives to want to plunk down for them.

    It's basically the Hasbro version plus some additional AM's...

    This has been stated many times : AM's are not for the US market! so yo're better buying them off TFW2005's sponsor sites...i.e. import them. seriously, where have you been these past few months? :p
