    Is there any word that there will be one of these eventually? The only thing I don't like about the current leader class prime is the plastic wheels, lack of finger articulation and the paint scheme compared with the 2007 premium prime.

    i have not heard of anything but i doubt that if there is a premium, there will be artic. fingers or rubber tires...probably just a snazzier-shinier paintjob...but thats just me...

    Hmmm. I see. Well, I can live with the plastic tires I guess. How is the Rotf leader class Prime? I have seen Peaugh's video review but how about you who own it. You like?

    You don't want rubber tires anyway. We all remember how the rubber ones on the RID figures dried up and suicided.

    I'd buy a Premium though.

    He's an amazing figure. Seriously; awesome transformation for a start. He looks superb in both modes. I;d definitely reccommend him extremely highly indeed.

    I think the most likely figures for Premium versions are

    Leader:
    Optimus Prime
    Jetfire

    Voyager:
    Longhaul
    The Fallen

    Deluxe:
    Sideswipe
    Sideways
    Rampage
    Skids
    Mudflap
    possibly Jolt
    Breakaway maybe

    Didn't Hasbro say there was going to be no "repaint" lines at Botcon though?

    Y'know, I was JUST thinking about posting pictures of my wig.
    Oh no, hang on.
    I don't HAVE a wig.
    So! Your favourite TF is "1", eh? What does he transform into? Autobot or Decepticon?

    I haven't heard anything, but I like the mold more then enough to buy a good repaint. I was actually planning on getting the Takara version in addition to the US version if thre were big enough differneces, but there really isn't. Anyways, I am really curious what they will do for a repaint, since it's bound to happen.

    With the lack of painted areas on the current release, this figure is just BEGGING to get a Premium edition.

    Hell, I'd pay $50-$60 if it's anything close to what they did with the Premium deluxes and voyagers.

    He just needs to be painted up like he is on the back of the box with more red, blue, gold, & silver. Yet, most of the silver areas could easily be solved if they just mold the pieces in that silver/gray colored plastic. And while they're at it, include some blue lights instead of red and green. Keep the voice chip the same. Peter Cullen helps even more to make this figure already as great as it is.

    I want this figure. But I'm holding out hope that TakaraTomy will release a version with chrome parts, similar to the MA-21 version from the 1st movie.
