    What he said. My RtS Prime is feeling a bit naked right now without this upgrade.

    Ah, I saw in another thread: November and about $100 before shipping (assuming that info was correct).

    Pass if that's the case.

    I believe I read somewhere that this will be released on late November, at the price point of 110$ or so.. :)

    I started saving up for this thing already.
    Can't wait to see a review on the quality of this thing.
    Boy am I glad I picked up G2 prime.

    Odd that no pre-orders have gone up despite the Nov release.

    Wouldn't they want to solicit orders to gauge production run?

    if we had a scourge/nemesis prime repaint of the Rts Prime I'd be all over this, but it's a pass for now. too many other tf's coming out between now and new years

    I bought the G2 Prime when this was announced. So glad I did because that is one pretty set. If the QC is as good as the visuals on this thing, we are in for another upgrade treat :)

    I bought two as well. Gotta fund the hobby some how right? lol

    I will go ahead and make the claim (personal opinion) that the QC, plastic quality, engineering and overall wow factor will be exactly the same as we get from Fansproject. Just call it a hunch :p

    Looks nice, but at $100+ I think I'll pass. Not a must-have for me, like City Commander and Protector were.
