    The reviewer tfed the shouledrs wrong in bot-mode, as they should be rotated up a click. Also, where is the faceplate for Primal Prime? As a REALLY big fan of this character/toy, I am interested in both this and a PE version.

    Though the comic had one, the original Primal Prime figure didn't.

    Yes, I know that. However, if they're going to do a custom, they might as well homage the character. The original toy came first, followed by the comic, so it would make sense for preceding figures to homage either the comic or born the comic and toy.

    Personally, I've always wanted to have the original toy head/face (it's more angular than the comic/PE version) with a transparent red visor. This would homage both really well, considering the original toy also features clear red parts.

    Found some in progress images of the Dragon Megatron on their Weibo page. I'm pretty hyped (as long as I can acquire it easily with TF-Direct or similar)

    I want the Primal Prime toy. How often do you see the 2001 RiD toy line get a 3p toy? Just him and Skybyte.

    Personally I'm more interested in the articulated hands for OpOp than the PP version.

    Just to know: anyone wants to depart from a right shoulder wing (in robot mode, left in gorilla mode)?
    My Optimal Optimus came with it missing and the seller said he had contacted the manufacturer for a replacement piece, but then he disappeared from ebay.
