    So many sites, so many threads about the same thing, I don't remember where I posted mine.

    It comes without the electronics so I transferred all the electronics from a Vector Prime. I don't know if the actual Botcon version will have electronics but at least mine is complete.:rock

    People are probably scared to say they got one, just incase it causes problems with them getting another at BotCon. LOL

    No electronics? Wow, for the price, that's really lame.

    It sucks that they gutted the electronics, but if it is the only way to get it, I am all for it. I love my Alpha Trion and can't wait to receive my Dreadwind. Now all that I need is Thrust and I have everything that I want from Botcon this year. Excellent figures, as always.

    Agreed, if true for the final production piece. But hope springs eternal until we see if the non-stolen version is without electronics as well.

    When did we learn what A3's price is going to be?

    (It's not like VP's electronics were any great shakes, anyway.)

    Only Pre-BW Primal, IIRC.

    Well, and Arcee's box.... Wait, I mean her package.... Aw, nevermind.

    Hell, I didn't even know he had any. Hardly a loss for me if A3 comes without.

    Not really; they're not even very good electronics.
    I think Cyclonus did.
    Megatron didn't, and he's still an amazing figure. And considering Vector Prime's electronics were awful, I definitely won't miss them. Especially if it lowers his price (Megatron would have most likely cost more with the electronics in).

    Optimus Primal has electronics, same class as Vector Prime. Good or not, electronics should have been there.

    Jarodimus, regarding the price, I meant the price paid on Ebay. Which will probably be only higher over time.

    yeah... I dont think VP came with batteries, so I dont recall ever activating mine. And if I remember, the only thing his cyber key does is activate the electronics, which means I've never seen the cyber key do anything either

    yeah, he's got light-up eyes

    I don't see how Primal's electronics have any bearing on A3's. As stated, we don't know what the price of the latter will be. I'd prefer that FP saved the money and left them out of A3, anyway.

    I also don't see how the eBay price of some illegally-obatined A3s means the figure is "lame" or that the electronics "should have been there".

    But maybe that's just me.

    I'll just be happy to get one in a couple of weeks time. It's the first time we've had a chance to own Alpha Trion, creator of Optimus Prime, as a non-PVC toy, and it even looks a lot like him to boot. Honestly, the electronics aren't even on my mind.

    There are 3 seperate sounds, seems like most people don't know about them.

    1. Insert cyber key to activate sound 1.
    2. Raise his right arm to activate a laser blast sound.
    3. Raise right arm while cyber key is inserted for a 3rd sound.

    I love sound 2. Attach Safeguard & raise his right arm to fire Safeguard's laser. Not much but it's still a lot better than Dark Crumplezone's crappy sounds.

    (You guys do know that Supreme Starscream makes multiple sounds & his eyes light up don't you???)
