Hi guys it will be my 1st review and also my 1st contribution for TFW2005, a little present from me before the year ends i hope you guys enjoy it. Since the mold is already reviewed i will keep things short and simple as much as possible. Will also post some comparative shots to other versions of Prid Optimus prime. Feedbacks and comments are appreciated thanks for looking. 1st the packaging Somehow the packaging has a Decepticon vibe to it maybe because of the purple theme. Some more info about Dark energon optimus. Now on to the toy, he still got the same weapons like the Prid optimus i just wished it can be lock this time but oh well. At 1st like many others im not so sure about the orange clear parts on the arms and windshield because in the promo pic it was more like yellow orange? But it quickly grows on me, it has two different colors in the limbs more like glittering dark blue and black if you look closely enough. same with the legs, shame on the shins they left it unpainted. A close up pic, it also has a new head mold pretty much similar to dr wu's stuff but rather evil looking. The autobot logo is now on the front instead of sideview. Backview - not much in here Now on to the vehicle mode, Well thats a big autobot logo isn't? Back view Some comparative shorts to other Prid optimus, To anyone who hates grey plastic in the limbs then this is for you! Vehicle mode with others, i like Dark energon's grill better than the other two. Compared with 1st ed Clear version optimus prime. i thought they have the same clear red plastic but the Dark energon version is more like pinkish if you check it closely. Dont you think Dark energon is better compare to 1st ed clear version in Truck mode? clear parts and colored plastic really works well in this version and has more detailed in it. If the Prid optimus prime dont work on you then i hope this one will, i used to hate the Prid version but the detail and theme really works in this version. very much like the nemesis prime when i 1st appreciated the mold compared to Prid optimus. I just wished they continue this line, im already imagining dark energon version of vehicons, skyquake, dreadwing, bulkhead pretty much all TF prime mold that will be epic! im willing to start the line again if hasbro decides to continue this line. Again Merry xmas and a happy newyear to all happy hunting.
