    A trailer for G2 Optimus? SWEET! Glad that I snagged the only G2 Optimus that I saw on the pegs at TRU awhile back... and I'm SO getting that trailer for him.

    Heh, I was about to just throw mine away about a week ago. I could not stand this thing! I wanted to like it, but it did nothing for me. A coupld days after that, I picked him up again for whatever reason and just starting messing around with him, and I have grown to like the little runt quite a bit despite his horrid color scheme. Now I am really glad I have him, haha. Wish I had two, lol.

    He is a fun little effer to play around with. He has incredibly impressive articulation.

    That is what won me over in the end. And he can hold his sword with both hands for some cool looks.

    Glad I got the United version then, don't really like the head on the original so at least thats sorted, shame about the bloody flames on his hood though that have no right to be there when the money could have gone towards painting the matrix in his chest!

    Don't think I'm going to keep him but will probably sell him once the upgrade comes out but I'll get a RTS one to repaint into Scourge I reckon. (should I be able to find one following this news.)

    ironicly i saw the kapow sale and put one in my basket, was going to pay right there but got a phone call. when i came back from the call, i browsed TFW2005 saw the fansproject trailer realised what i was looking at, changed the tab to my still open kapow shopping basket, and went to go to the checkout only to find they were sold out.

    Bummer.

    Ok. So.

    How much you think the RTS version is going to shoot up in price? It was rare at retail from the bigger stores.

    Now how much you think the United version will jump to? Stupid Retarded classics Hot Rod levels?

    Hard to find at retail, meaning few people own him to begin with, in addition to a 3rd pary release for him, a FP release above all...
    I call it for at least 55 bucks by the end of the year.
