    Ordered. Can't get enough of the UM line, even if it's just a repaint with (very cool) newly molded pieces.

    Super conflicted on this one. Think I'll pass. Starting to get annoyed with the lack of Megatron.

    The original UM Prime is the best G1 OP ever made in collectible form, bar none, ever, regardless of it being able to transform or not. If this helps Fewture fund their Megatron, I'll help.

    Seems like a niche-amongst-niche thing but it's certainly cool. I wish I could afford the regular one but man, that price.

    That's what I'm planning on doing. No regrets.

    BTW, does anyone have a pic of the first Ultimetal Prime next to the Toys Alliance MAS01 Prime?

    Actually! Selling everything for one big figure?

    I took that as an exaggeration but a large chunk of it will be on the chopping block. It's something I had been thinking of doing for a long time anyway.

    If I go through with it, this one may be the centerpiece of my Optimus Prime collection. I already have the Toys Alliance MAS01 Prime and the Three A Evasion Mode Prime as my two current "big" figures with Three A's TLK Prime paid for. I think having a smaller collection focused on a few large figures looks more interesting than having a bunch of cluttered shelves of assorted smaller figures.
