    Huh...that's odd. It looks as though they've changed the packaging. As for the brighter colors, I actually like them. Gives him a more cartoony look.

    It looks ok but for the price tag I would rather it had long stacks. My little pipe-dream, as it were.

    I think around 60 or 70. But I am pulling those numbers straight out of my ass. I remember somewhere had it up on pre-order.

    Nice to see another release of this mold for people who missed it the last time or who are just entering/re-entering the hobby after the Movie. While I'm intrigued by the voice-box thing, I can't see spending the money on this, since I already have the previous Hasbro reissue and the Titan TPBs for the comic.

    I might buy this just to have my first G1 Prime, but he has lots of unnecesary accesories that just serve to justify the high price tag. If he was priced just above a leader class, then I would buy a couple of them.

    I haven't really kept up with news on this guy. Do we know if the voicebox will feature Cullen?

    Considering how much they're doing RIGHT with this (the packaging, the DVD, comic), not having Cullen would really diminish the impact, for me.

    I'm not sure that just a Silver roller and voicebox can justify this purchase, as I already have "New Year's Prime" from a couple'a years back...

    It's not just short stacks... it's also the yellow eyes. That never sat right with me.
    I suppose I could mix-n-match, but it's a hefty pricetag.

    @Powersa -- yeah, I really do like the packaging, too... but I very rarely hang onto boxes as storage/display space at home is scarce.

    Take a look at the back: It's got the "2 in 1" logo which, (IIRC) has only ever appeared on packaging produced for the European market.

    That said, the packaging appears to be English only. Does that indicate that this will be available in the U.K. market as well?

    The stock photo also has a silver Roller and short missiles.


    Anyway, I really like the brighter colors, but for the price of the toy Im not buying it since its the the long missiles and short stacks. Also, for about the same price or $5 more I could have the Encore Prime today.:thumbdown 


    Oh, and I dont really like the packaging either.

    I don't see any mention of the DVD that was originally to be included. Has that now been nixed?

    At any rate, I'm happy with my Encore Prime. If I were to get this it would be for display as a MISB, really.

    I'm tempted because I've never had a complete G1 Optimus before, and I think all the extras are brilliant. That's a pricey toy though....
