    Hey... I looked for a similar thread in the first few pages but found none, so I'll make my own thread...

    QUESTION...

    I'm considering picking up the SDCC exclusive TRANSFORMERS PRIME OPTIMUS PRIME Figure from HTS.

    If I buy this from Hasbro Toy Shop will it also have the special Matrix of Leadership packaging? Thats about 99% of the reason I would go ahead and buy this. I'd like to add it to my small, but growing collection of Primes.

    Aside from the packaging is this figure even worth it? From the pics I've seen it just looks kinda "meh" so I'm kinda on the fence about it. But like I said, I mostly would want if for the Matrix packaging, I think that looks pretty cool.

    Thanks for any/all input!

    Yup, you'll get the Matrix packaging. As for the figure, I'd say he has an interesting transformation, but he's nothing to drool over. Check out his feedback thread, and perhaps a video review.

    Yes it is the matrix packaging. Look at the picture.

    And get it. It is a unique piece, definitely worth the 20 bucks.

    Is the plastic colour any different other than the windshield?

    Personally I am waiting for the voyager but it could be a nice addition to your prime collection if you wanted some a little eye catching. $20 bucks is worth it.

    Won't the 2-pack that comes with Megatron be around $20 as well? I can't see spending the same money on less toy just for a "kewl boks".

    But, to each his own. I ain't judging! :)

    At $20, I would say go ahead and get it. The figure itself only looks okay, but if the main reason you want it is for the Matrix packaging than it's worth it.

    apparently sdcc prime has slightly sparkly plastic, whilst regular mass release prime won't, so it's not entirely the same toy. Certainly different enough for connoisseurs/compulsives to grab both if it's true.


    +1 waiting for the voyager because it looks way better.

    Yup, you get the nice packaging.

    As for the figure, it's a deluxe Prime - that carries some baggage in and of itself. It's not a stunning figure, which is why it probably won't get a solo release (SDCC and entertainment pack only).

    But I'll tell you what it is - it's Prime toys before December, and to me that makes it worth the cost. Think of it as an 'early toys tax'. :D

    Chalk me in with the "Awesome Packaging" crowd as my reason for getting this now instead of waiting for the retail release. The presentation of this box is worth the price for me. If you're looking at this to beef up your Prime collection, this is a perfect piece with The Matrix and all.
