    Here now for your enjoyment courtesy of SydneyY is a gallery of the second of the two Tokyo Toy Show 2012 exclusive Transformers! Shining Optimus Prime is a crystal version of my personal favorite toy of 2011, the Voyager Class First Edition Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime. This crystal version manages to look even more impressive, thanks to the glow that the translucent plastic gives the toy when light hits it. Don't just take my word for it, check out the gallery and see for yourself:

    I'm sure he is sweet. Haven't tried licking him yet though, very tempting.
    (I'm not kidding....clear TFs look very edible :p )

    Looks great and in the review thread, it was mentioned that the blade whilst transparent is made out of harder rubber.

    He looks great! Quick quesion- are his ankle joints tighter then the standard release? All the poses you have keep his feet in the standard position.

    mpl- Glad you saw the gallery. So I don't have to stick more pics on your wall :D 

    opt1musaber - plastic feels very good. Not brittle at all in my opinion.

    how about black repaint? Man I'm hopeless....

    Smokestacks are rubbery plastic as well. I am very grateful of that, because while they don't look as sharp, I don't have to worry about breaking them :) 

    They feel about the same :)  Only issue I have with this clear version is his legs don't stay on (front and shin parts) together very well. I move the legs and the shins detach almost every time.

    ^nice! great to know that the clear plastic used is pretty sturdy.. gives me piece of mind too. :) 

    ^Oooh, I m up for that..but I guess there is already the mass-retail PRID version coming out later this year to cover that... :lol :


    Hmm, wonder why is that? :sly:

    That pretty much happens with the standard version to.

    I'm surprised there's still some available for preorder.

    ^Does it? then I must have been lucky, as my original FE Prime doesn't have that problem at all :D 

    I hope he sells as well as United black Optimus. I love them both a lot.

    The problem I have with both of my FE Prime is the feet don't sit straight on the cab roof in vehicle mode. I fixed the head of the original FE, and Shining FE didn't have that issue - and there's still a gap :(

    It does when I try to swivel the feet left to right because the screw makes that joint really tight. I've heard some others having that issue in the FE Prime review thread as well. The other common problem is the head not being attached at the right spot on the ball joint.
