    So optimus prime turns to the dark side, and megatron turns.... deeper into the dark side? They should have made him "light side" megatron.

    The Lawson's is kinda disappointing in that it's just like the Amazon JP one from ROTF really, with slight changes. Sigh. But enough changes that i'll go ahead and guy it as well..

    If the Lawson's colors really do pop out like that, I could see myself grabbing it. I'm skeptical though.

    it just sucks that they're again using the Hasbro ROTF dull grey plastic again instead of the Buster Prime chromed better paint version. Although the red clear plastic is nicer looking than the blue.

    Awesome, a Nemesis Convoy instead of a Black Convoy! Never really was into the black Megatrons though, he's not evil enough?

    And a Very R.I.D/Car Robots Gigatron-esque color scheme for Megs. yeah i can see it being a nod to Car Robots.

    Hm? How do you figure? If you were naming Convoy, I'd agree, it's very Black Convoy-esque. However, Gigatron was primarily purple and red, I really don't see that here. I'd say this is much more of a nod to Shadow Blade Megatron from Animated.

    really bummed Jetwing isn't a tad more "buster-ish" in his paint scheme ~ outlined flames and at least some silver paint instead of the lame grey plastic ~ much as i like this I'm not sure i can justify $175 for a Hasbro-level paint job :( 

    Maybe this'll end up a store exclusive or something...

    There must be a DOTM leader prime coming... that looks like a redesign of the whole front piece of the core torso section, surely wouldn't be just for this release, and in trademark Hasbro super dull grey too! :)

    Ya know? It's a good thing the Black Battle Blades Prime doesn't have a decepticon symbol, or my wallet would be dying right about now.
