    The way that the front ends UP on his feets, makes me think that this is a glorius remold of TLK voyager OP.

    Let's face it. That mold still have (with kibble and all ) the most solid truck/alt (in a single released toy) mode. At least without falling apart.

    Those alt modes in leader primes by HasTak gave me nightmares.

    UT. Count me in.

    Cant forget the head placement. Thats much better on Black Mamba's version too since its not awkwardly far back. The lower legs look a good deal more accurate than Challenger's too.

    If Black Mamba's is cheaper than Challenger and better quality than El Cid, he'll certainly be my go to choice.

    People always say: If Black Mamba Version is Cheaper.

    Figures of that Size (I think 3P Optimus Primes are ALL around the same Size) is ALWAYS 100$.
    Price Range 90$ - 130$ (90-100 if you Choose early Bird / Pre Order).

    Ther is NO WAY you get such a Figure
    NEW AND SEALED for around 50$-70$ without Shipping Cost
    People should stop to Dream about such low Price Tags.

    100$ is the Magical Number; Most of 3rd Party Combiner Limbs are 100$, most Figures of that Size are around
    100$, all Optimus Prime Figures, all DX9 Figures (YES also DX9 T-Beast Rodimus)

    BUT, that makes it easier to Choose i think. If all are the same Price, you only Need to choose the Version that Looks best for you.

    I do not know about the Additional Items that Black Mamba Comes with, maybe i will buy this Version also.

    As i have predicted AA El Cid is a complete Mess; i saw Youtube Videos
    Figure is to complicated for Transformation, and not even Knight Screen Accurate.

    So for now, i will stick to UT.

    Rendsora is 25 dollars 35 with shipping and he is massive. So why cant we assume going on other black mamba items he will be priced nicely. I mean OS nitro was around 45 shipped he is also black mamba. We will have to see.. i personally like both.

    Because their previous stuff were ko so , and this is a completely independent new mold as far as I can tell . So there would be design / engineering cost to factor into pricing this time around .

    Got an email from gci toys saying this was in but didn’t get a shipping notice. Emailed the site and they said that it was an auto generated email from their site and that this is delayed until late May.

    Figured something wasn’t right considering we haven’t seen color photos of it yet

    That’s it? That would be amazing if true, but I’m not sure I believe it. Why wouldn’t they have released any pictures yet??

    @Sephiroth169 It's entirely possible to get a 3rd Party MP Optimus for under $100 shipped. Off the top of my head, I picked up the following:

    Toyworld Primorion $65 shipped
    Sparktoys Alpha Pack $65 shipped
    GT Op Ex $75 shipped
    AA El Cid $75 shipped

    Challenger is being listed here at around $90 shipped.

    Perhaps before making grandiose pronouncements as if they are unrefutable facts, you should check into them a bit first.

    And, for the record, the wording you're looking for is "stop dreaming", not "stop to dream".

    @rob_charb

    Do you have some kind of Magical Vendor that offers these Figures for such Prices?
    Because EVERYTIME i check...hm i call them "BIG" Vendors like

    - Chimungmung / Robot Kingdom,
    - Kapow Toys,
    - TFS Express,
    - Toy Source
    - The Chose Prime
    and so on

    i always see the same Price on every Site for one and the same Figure.

    If a DX9 Ancestrod Rodimus for example has a Price Tag of 100$,
    i can almost guarantee that all other Sites mentioned above offer him
    for the exact same Price.

    I know that because i always compared these Sites with each other when looking for a Product.

    And i can tell you, if UT Challenger has a Price Tag for around 90$ - 130$,
    that you see this Price Range on EVERY Site that i have mentioned above.

    Still would like to know which Site offers El Cid for 75$.
    Of Course there are some Vendors that i never heard from.
    > and to be honest, i did not check the Initial Price Tag from El Cid because he did not Interest me that much.

    But on all others Sites (At least these that i know, above ^) always have the same Price.

    So if you have some kind of MAGICAL Online Store, that offers New Figures
    for such low Prices, you should perhaps tell us that Store / Share it with the People
    instead of keeping it for yourself.
