    Damn, even though this is a thick prime he isn’t as box like as UT which I like as well. But this version looks better to me from the head sculpt, arms down to the legs.

    But the alt mode on this is ehhh..if only it was TW bot mode and UT alt mode.

    Good for TW and this new designer I hope TW takes the opportunity and create characters not shown by any 3party company.

    Wow he looks better and better! This is gonna be an interesting face-off between him and Challenger. I might end up owning both then deciding which I like better and selling one. So far this one wins on a lot of the molded detail and the SMOOTHness of the bot mode, but UT is still winning on accessories, alt mode, some of the general proportions (this guy's got puny shoulder pads), and the fact that he is coming out soon and we probably won't get this guy til next year.

    All that stuff about it not being black mamba's design anymore is interesting! Maybe a mod should merge this thread with BMB's original thread? I guess the original pics have already been reposted in here tho...

    Samsung and Apple have been one upping each other and battling it out the same way in the smart phone, tablet and now smart watch spaces for years.
    Clothing brands and designers do the same thing.
    Hoonestly even in the gaming industry with various FPS games , co-oop games, MMO's etc.
    It's standard business practice to try and "beat" your competition.
    For you as a customer it looks wrong, but for me as a customer it's the best thing ever - I get to choose with more information.How many people would have skipped the various 3P Megatrons had they known MP-36 was coming? If I'd known Maketoys was producing better Seekers, I could have saved $800 on three shit-house Takara seekers and a conehead.

    But to stay on topic - Unique Toys Protoypte (left) vs Toyworld (right). Personally I kind of like the look of Toyworlds - he seems more beefy. That whole body builder, massive torso look.

    It's like the third-party G1 Cliffjumper wars where there's no clear winner. You pick the one that you think has the fewest flaws or just wait.

    Or the one that appeals to your own indidivual tastes I guess. For me I think it's Toyworld, but until I see colour shots of theirs, its tough to decide. At least I have another option - though I think this is teh BMB option we already had? Confused now.

    Really? So the guy behind Black Mamba is now working for Toyworld? Is he responsible for the new Transmetal Cheetor as well? Interesting

    UT Challenger has the track record, the beastly moxie, the sexiness, and the overall aesthetic slash fit and finish I've come to expect from a Unique Toys product, but this effort has promise. I've heard that TW has a whole new designer(s) so this could either be incredible for a first figure or a nightmare. That said I have continuing faith in TW that they can impress when they really want to. Hear that Toyworld... don't make me look the fool!

    I'm just gonna wait for somebody to blow a bunch of money on all of these 3P AOE Optimus Primes, compare them all, possibly make a youtube video of it, and then I'll decide from there.
