    I hope you're right... I'm just pointing out that a retailer (albeit in Australia) put up a number. Outside of Ebay that's the first indication I've seen.

    I already explained why. Cause with the original Primal colors, the shoulder cannons version is his 'battle platform'/'battle form' which in show with Primal's original form, is when he had the mouth guard up. Which would also add more visual difference to the two molds instead of one simply being a larger one. (Though with the Crown version, he needs it down, for that more regal presence.)

    Otherwise, normal OpOp version colors can keep the mouth guard down since it normally had it down cept that comic appearance which is a different color version too. Though if they want to recolor for that one as an exclusive down the line with the alternate head, sure why not. Make the most of whatcha got etc.

    Personally, I like this concept of Pre-Earth Primal to end of BW Primal. It has a very nice "before beast wars" and "after beast wars" feel to it. Like the the scene of them leaving on the extra shuttle from the Ark. So it's very Axalon captain to Ark Shuttle Captain type before and after. Which is what I'm hoping for with BW Megatron too. Pre-Beast Wars for how he crashed on the planet, and then Dragon exo suit for how he was strapped to the Ark Shuttle roof. Plus that dragon form had a jet mode too, which would work complimentary to OpOp's jet mode in a toy "aerial battle" kind of way.

    Now the other question though. How to get that Ark shuttle big enough to strap Dragon Megatron to. :lolol

    A friend of mine will be at SDCC this year. Does anyone know the process of purchasing things at Hasbro Toy Shop during SDCC in person? Do you just stand in line and then purchase it? Is there some lottery or ticket or anything? Would he be able to purchase this and the Bumblebee and dino G1 casettes in a single transaction? Thanks for any help!

    Usually, you have to get a ticket from Hasbro upstairs, which allows you to get in line to purchase from Hasbro. You can usually buy everything at once, but they limit the quantity you can get (i.e you can get only get one POTP Throne).

    Aye but it's different this year. Explained it all on the cassettes page but basically you need to pre-register and then there will be a drawing to allow you to purchase. Can't say anything about quantities at this point.

    70$ is such a good deal. Though that means he'll be difficult to find at the aftermarket for that price....

    Awesome. I don't usually have that kind of money sitting around but am determined to get this guy and have a small bit of time to get prepared. Might just have to look into some odd jobs on top of my usual income...

    Well, I guess I'm in the minority, I was interested in this, but $70 is just too much, or at least well exceeds my desire at that price.
