    Thanks to TFW2005 board member Omnius for bringing us news that Transformers Movie Nightwatch Optimus Prime is available at retail in the UK! He also comes with an exclusive lenticular poster.

    As reported previously, NWOP's UK release will be exclusive to Argos. This does not mean he will not be available in the US.

    They got it before us o_O ?

    Meh..no real interest in it anyways, I try and avoid repaints (espescially if it is the same character with a new color scheme).

    I was planning on skipping this but after seeing so much of it, it'll make the perfect stand in for my Magnus collection for a movie figure.

    The only thing that bothers me is his grey really is abundant. Kinda of makes him look like scourge more than magnus. The decepticons have alot more darks than the autobots for the movie line. So this one could look dull compared with the other autobots. I'll get the current leader prime and not the repaint.

    Why do people keep insisting it is Magnus? It was never said to be Magnus, for Primus' sake it even says Prime on the package -_-

    I love repaints...especially when I never got the original colors. :D 

    Any word on when they're coming here to the states?

    I'm not exactly into repaints but I got to admit...that repaint is kinda good...I'm thinking since protoform Optimus was blue - this could have been Movie Optimus' colour - instead of the regular red and blue.
