Limited Edition "Year of the Dragon" Ultimate Optimus Prime

Spotted the Limited Edition "Year of the Dragon" Ultimate Optimus Prime in a huge shopping mall in Guangzhou, China.

Retail price is 999 RMB (~US$160).

The packaging features a dragon emblem on the topside of the box, instead of the Autobot logo.

The cab's front grills is unpainted red color plastic, which is quite a turnoff.

Pass. Super pass. The mother of all passes.

They could have released a "premium" paintjob version and I would be more interested. At least the green monkey camo Prime looked cool.

There's no way I'd ever spend that ammount of money on a single TF, but I like how it looks.

Curious but interesting, good spot.

Would have been cooler if they used the ROTF Leader mould, and replaced the flames up the side with the dragon motif, IMO
