    UW Baldigus/Ruination with this? Lotsa joy.

    I'd argue the one from two years ago would be a better fit, but I guess that depends on the person :p

    The one from a few years ago has oddly proportioned feet and a head that is way too movie inspired

    I think TR was just a bad time to update Laser Prime again because it gave him that plane mode, but I do think it looks cool and I do want it, so what do I know?

    Huh, swear I've seen shots where they're the same head height

    I'm in anyways, plane mold and all. Given RID Megs I am completely fine with Scourge being a triple changer, and it makes a neat update to him

    Very true and through the years I've bought 2, however these days I'm more wary of the market, I don't go hard at collecting the way I did 5 years back.

    I'm expecting this at the very least for $80+ shipping at places like BBTS. These tend to be easy to find at Mandarake so it would be could to check them out sometime after release.

    Truth be told, I got the G2 Prime from the box set, and never even once transformed it into the plane. It was clearly designed with the tanker truck in mind and the plane parts were just tacked on later.


    Everything shows up on Mandarake eventually, but it requires a lot of patience sometimes. However that wait can be a good thing, because it can help people weed out lots of impulse purchases from BBTS that some might regret later, like spending nearly 4 times as much on a voyager toy just for a special paint scheme.

    We all make choices in life, some good and some bad. I think this would be a bad one.

    What shitty Ruination? I only know of the excellent UW Baldigus one. Has a new one been announced?

    No, it was designed with Octane in mind, and the Laser Optimus & Black Convoy versions were just tacked on later.

    Octane's plane mode looks a lot better than Optimus/Black Convoy's.

    It amazes me there are still some people here who still don't know that Voyager Optimus Prime only has a jet mode because it was designed to be Octane.

    And...

    Shattered Glass Optimus Prime.

    Wait, maybe we'll see a Crystal/Clear version as well. :)

    I'm gonna hope that BBTS will have this one available. I don't really get too many Tokyo Toy show exclusives (Loud pedal is my only one).
