    What is the general opinion of this repaint. I was checking BBTS they have them at 27 bucks. Between Prime and Stealth Bumblebee, wich one is better?

    I like the Nightwatch colors on this mold more than the standard movie colors.

    Agreed, a close call to Nemesis if you've got a thing for him. It's one of my favorites and thats a great price too, I paid 39.99.

    Yeah it's an awesome repaint. The paintjob is nice and metallic and a happy medium between Nemesis and Ultra Magnus colors IMO.

    imo: premium prime > nightwatch prime > regular prime. nw prime is a great figure to have if you dont have the 1st-released movie leader prime.

    Finally, a voice of reason. The mold is great but the paint scheme makes him look like bunch of jolly ranchers glued together. The foreign version is supposed look better, but I havent seen many pictures of it.

    I like both versions. But if I had to choose it would have to be the original.

    The British version is allegedly better, which is nice, as British fans often suffer from a lack of figures released in America and do not have access to many exclusives.

    I highly recommend him. I don't call him NW Prime. I call him Ultra Magnus. I've changed some of the display wings at the back and shoulder pad angles to make him slightly different.

    As for the toy, the purple really works and the baby blue isn't as bad as others have made it out to be imo. I particularly dig the dark aqua blue hues. They really work.

    I usually don't get repaints. But I have to say, the repaint is admittly more appealing than the original. But then again, I like Premium Prime's more "movie accurate" head mold.
