    Is it just me or is this trailer using the dreaded flat gray color scheme?

    As I recall, that was a rumored foreign price.

    I'm so glad they went with a large clear case for this. I already have the Takara version, so this makes me more inclined to get it and keep it MIP. It's going to display great, and feeds my Prime addiction. :)

    Can't wait for this! The blue looks less vibrant here, although it's probably just the lighting. In any case, it looks great!
    The inside of the trailer is grey, but the outside is painted. Or that's how it was at Botcon, at least.

    Looks like the exterior is painted silver, but the interior is left unpainted. You can really see it in this pic:

    $100 bucks for this? Great price for what looks to be a great figure. Sure he's smaller than the original MP... but seeing the improvements in both modes... gotta say it seems worth it.

    I see a nice shade of red on him. People were saying he was a pinkish red before.

    Yes, but on the initial Facebook post, they said he'd probably be cheaper in North America than what they're selling him for.

    I thought the booth at botcon had it listed at $99.99...but in my search for pictures from the showcase at the con have turned up fruitless. It was the price I'd be going off of in my head the last couple of months.

    Just hope he is not the piece of crap that Rodimus was, quality issues were big.
