    So the top of the right hand of mine just broke off sitting on the shelf. I looked at it and the piece that broke is a thin grey plastic rectangle with a piece that connects to a spring on the inner hand. It reminds me of mp-09 rodimus shoulders all over again. Wonder if planet x would send me a replacement piece. Either that, or I could try to make one from wood. I can't figure out why there is a spring. The piece seems to be needed to rotate the top of the hand, not pull it out or put tension on it.

    I suppose so, but I hadn't seen it until today and I don't think it's been added to this thread.

    Oh, fair enough.

    Can you post some pictures of him with your current planetx collection?

    Huh, thought it was just a custom. Does this mean they're doing a battle damaged Sentinel too? And if yes, why not Omega Supreme?

    That's a horrible choice. Sentinel as is didn't even sell well. Is this just leftover stock they gave a weathered paintjob and repackaged? :lol

    Could be. But I love that figure and the battle-damaged version looks pretty good to me, so I'm in.

    PreOrder up for the battle damaged version ar BBTS for $349.99. They also took down the sold out listings for the regular version.

    I think this guy and Gammadim look great, but I already have Genesis and the regular Apocalypse.

    I agree, on the other hand once you get "metallic" and "battle worn" versions, they stand out like a sore thumb with the rest of your Planet X shelf. I appreciate Planet X is munging its molds as much as possible, but I would REALLY like them to move on and give us a FOC Jazz...

    Hahah. I remember seeing this at the con and thinking "Why'd someone go to all the trouble of a custom paint job and not put a Decepticon insignia on it?". I thought it was a custom job, not a variant.

    This is very tempting. I think the paint job (which pretty much completely obscures the original's purple tint in person) makes it a better representation of Trypticon in the game, but as @rikkomba said, it'll stick out with figures that aren't painted like it.

    Have they completely stopped producing the original? I wonder if this variant has the fingers fixed so that they close better in Nemesis mode.

    The problem with battle damaged is that you'll most likely never display in alt mode.

    Did it look much different in person? I was unable to go.
