    I actually dig it cause it's in scale with Voyager Megatron in alt mode. I guess in robot mode too in that case.

    Meh. Is Hasbro these days trying to one-up the KOs by producing toys that looks like them ?

    The one that comes with the Chronicle release looks better.

    My Wal-Mart in Alabama had a giant Transformers DOTM display that went half-way across the store, fully stocked with a huge amount of all the exclusives; I already have Deluxe Prime

    This is seriously real? Wow.. what an eye sore and insult to Optimus Prime. Looks like something you would pick up at Big Lots.

    Ello ello. Its frontpaged and there's more to it. I'm looking for a decent Sideswipe (never owned any) and spotted DOTM non-hooded one last week. Contemplated for 10 minutes before I passed on it (packing laintjob eeer lacking paintjob). Guess my instincts told me to wait for this Rally version.

    From the pricetag.. that mall is 15 min from my office (now). I heard they're offering FREE 2x premier tickets for purchase over myr$200 (converted, that'll be us$66). Thats TWO great reasons for me to mobilise there at lunch hour later . Maybe DOTM Megatron and cyberverse sentinel prime shall make my purchase complete worthy for the free tix's.

    Wish me luck, fellas!

    This figure looks much better in person than in pictures. Especially the alt mode. Love the silver paint. Closer to chrome than all the drab grey on the past Prime's.

    I completely agree! It might be because I'm a Prime junkie, but this figure is one of my favorites from the whole DOTM MechTech line

    I don't have any pics, but Deluxe Optimus had a wide release in Korea as well. I'm seeing him at Toys R Us's as well as local hobby shops in laaaaaarge quantities.

    Not to discredit or pour scorn on the OP, but the Chronicle Prime 2 Pack deco > this.

    @Shin Densetsu: Yup, appreciate the news, Shin :D 
    All it needs is the magical dry-brushing paint apps and i'll look good.

    How come the UK sighting of these hasn't been front paged? These have been out here for about a fortnight.
