    Eh. I think I'll stick with my Hasbro version, despite the United one looking a lot nicer.

    After fiddling with this mold at Botcon, I have to say I almost hate this figure. Ever since I saw the United version(and missed out on it), I was really excited for it too.

    In all honesty... I felt this way... but only after upgrading the RTS version with the Battle Tanker.

    Really... the figure looks BAD on its own...

    Not sure about the reissue G2 Prime tho tbh. Sure the paint job's better... but I'm quite fine with RTS Prime (as long as he's got the Tanker attached.)

    That, and I'd rather wait for the Scourge repaint... and subsequent Nemesis Tanker repaint.

    Still, good news for folks that want the better paint job.

    Already preordered. He'll go on display next to my RtS G2 Primes (one stickered and modified, with Battle Tanker, one plain and unmodified), my vintage Laser Optimus, and my Takara reissue G2 Battle Convoy. Unlike others, I love this mold. Planning to get the club exclusive Scourge repaint as well.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a love-hate relationship with this mold, but the Takara one looks a whole lot better than the Hasbro RtS version.

    Besides the paint, they fixed that awful peg on his right shoulder, I believe, if it affects anyone's opinion at all.

    I wish they'd do a new run of WFC Prime.

    Why is this mold getting so much attention lately?
    I really wasn't very impressed by it.

    $40-45 has been typical for popular United figures lately. Less popular ones go fit about $30-35. The price is high, but not abnormally so.

    Too bad I hate this mold or I might consider it.

    Wish they were re-issuing United WFC Prime instead.

    The bot's a Hasbro RTS and that's a KO Battle Tanker, if you're wondering.
