    I'm pretty anxious to get the new leader Prime but does anyone know if they are planning a premium one and how long it would be before they hit shelves? How long did it take in 07?

    Hasbro has said no to Premiums again but it's pretty safe bet that they'll repaint it somewhere down the line. What that paintjob will look like is to be decided though.

    I think the Premium Prime came a year and a half after the 1st movie.

    As far as I know there will be no Premium line this time, because last time it was only meant to extend the life of the first movie line because of its popularity, this time Hasbro is better prepared with more toys.

    thanks for the info... I guess there's no real need to wait to get my Prime now.

    Seems strange that they did away with the premiums, I assumed they were popular.

    However, I bet TakaraTOMY will release a Toy R' Us exclusive giftset of Optimus Prime and JetFire with translucent plastic and an exclusive figure like with all Optimus Prime combos.

    Ebay:
    I purchased my 1st Prime last year in July 07, right when the movie came out. I purchase my Premium Prime in March 08, so nine months.

    I believe Hasbro said no Premium line so a Premium Optimus is still possible but it's anybody's guess when it'll come out.

    I think we can expect a Nightwatch Prime of some kind. Maybe they'll even make a running change on the chest panels to make them easier to pull out, but somehow I doubt that.
