    The camo version will be my first tfc purchase. What a way to break my tfc virginity .... two massive exploding oversize rockets.

    EMS is amazing. I ordered a Metroplex from Robot Kingdom for like 200 bucks and spent another 100 on shipping (so pretty much the same price or less as you'll find on ebay) and it was on a Friday I think and it arrived at my door on Tuesday. Three days, from China!

    For the people plugged into TFC, do you guys know if they've got anything else in the works after this or is the release of this going to open the door for them to get cracking on Satan?

    Bought mine from Kapow, £124.99 shipped which I'm well happy with.

    Now we play the waiting game...

    Got mine today. He is one heavy bastard! Loads of die cast. One thing you might want to watch for though; the unpainted die cast guns and missiles on mine look old and pitted. It doesn't bother me, but I'm not sure they should look like that.

    Had a few extra minutes before work and just transformed the big guy. Oh. My. Lord. TFC killed it with this guy. The transformation is very intuitive and fun. There are so many ratchets! I'm not even a ratchet-nut and I love the clickety-clack he makes! Everything feels so solid. Even the fingers are toleranced incredibly well.

    Seriously, if you're on the fence, don't wait. This Optimus is abso-friggin-lutely worth every dollar.

    If this is as good as is being suggested I am definitely in for the camo deco as well.
