Here's that other bit of release news I mentioned - Amazon's second Transformers exclusive of the Fall season, Jetwings Optimus Prime, has also been released. This is the first time that the Supreme class Jetwings version of Optimus Prime as been available outside of Japanese import releases, and it sports a unique deco to boot.

It is also currently in stock at Amazon if you missed out on preordering and have since decided your Dark of the Moon collection needs Optimus Prime with his flight gear - click here to view the page on Amazon. Thanks for bringing this one to our attention goes to 2005 Boards member PlutoniumX.

I was starting to think this thing was cancelled.......

Curious to see in package shots.

Should this go to N+R?

Quick! Nobody buy this right away so Amazon'll drop the price like they did on the Year of the Dragon Prime.
TacomaPrime
dangit. I'm tapped out till next payday. I wish you could pay for stuff on amazon with paypal so I could use my bill me later option!

Although, I do have the regular one, so maybe I should spend that money on ones I don't have instead of this repaint.

Ugh, if it weren't for the paint job on the wings, I'd be all over that.

yeah I really would have liked this mold but as far as the paint goes it looks like a leprechaun lost his lunch on it. not worth $100+. $40-$50 maybe for customization purposes. sad they didn't just do a plain paint app, I would have been fine with it.

Samesies. If it drops down in price, I'll consider it. Otherwise, I'd rather spend the extra cash and get the one without the paint on the wings and gun.
Omega Charge
I was looking forward to getting this but I'm scared the price will drop.
I'll give it a bit and see, it's not something I need right away.
PlutoniumX
I wish it had the chrome like this.
Smashs
Just got my shipping notice from the pre-order.

Monday cant get here soon enough...
hthrun
$100 and free shipping. Hmmm... I'd paint the jet pack and wings anyway... And I get paid tomorrow...

hope this goes to 50% off during next month's year end sale.

Agreed.

I fully intend on painting the guns a nice gunmetal grey, and the wings metallic silver.

$105 + $10 on paint + a couple hours painting is much better than the $250 ebay prices.

Me too. Love that the decided to ship it right as I had nearly wrapped up my Christmas shopping.

I'm looking forward to seeing this on clearance. I'll totally buy it at that point. Its a great mold and I don't have the extra bits.

I'm so glad I got the regular version here in Asia. HAH.

Maybe I'll wait, too. If I knew I couldn't get it cheaper I'd buy it now, but I don't want it so much that I'm not willing to wait... If I didn't already have RotF Prime, I wouldn't take that chance...

Yea, I paid a bit more (some of it in trade) for the Asia version about a month before this one was announced, but not having these paint apps really softens the blow that it would have been.

I always knew this day would come. The day when Jetwing Optimus Prime would ship, and suddenly all the bits I've had saved on my Shapeways account and in my Bookmakrs would have to get moved to the Cart.

And the Cubex guns whenever they come out.

Also, it's apparently time to finish the OMEGA ARMOR that's been sitting on my bench for almost a year.

This is gonna be fun.

Just maybe this paint job will be amazing in person
*sarcastic smile*
Sentinel
Sweet. Leader Prime #12 is coming my way!!! Boo yah!!!

(Yeah, I've got a problem. I'm addicted to Leader Prime. I'm weak.)
Schide
Holy crap.

They orange capped his gatling guns.
doctajones428
Woo finally!

Just need to repaint those guns and I'll be a happy camper

Well with the size of them they could look like a regular sized gun in the hands of a toddler and that's the last thing we need, more cops shooting toddlers.

I'm really torn on this one. If I bought it I would want the box to be in nice shape but I've always had bad luck ordering things like this from Amazon. I wish I could give them two or three dollars more for some bubble wrap.
ogscorpion
Got two of this pre-ordered back in July. I just got the shipping notice and it will be in my doorstep on Monday. Can't wait!
sinwithme13
Dam another jetwing same sh!t different color come on bring some thing new
moreprimeland
Didn't realize this was news...they've been putting this one in my recommendations for ages now. As a matter of fact, was looking at it again today.
It is tempting, but I think I'll wait and see what happens, not really feeling that I can't live without him...I have so many movie Optimus figures already.

Some of you folks who get him Monday tell us what you think.
phoenixliger
ill wait till they get striker OP(hopefuly). this one just doesnt do it for me
Backscatter
Ordered this Prime/Convoy back on 7 July. Very glad it wasn't cancelled.
Blackops
Mine will be here today. Which I am selling

>amazon doesn't take paypal
well, screw you too, amazon.
Fort_Fett
Wow thanks for the heads up..I just dropped over 5 bills on LEGO sets on Amazon this week and could use a break. Cancelling my preorder from July and will wait for a price drop like his dragon friend...

**EDIT - they must be boxing it up right now...will not let me cancel. boo
Grimwing
Prefer the amazon version over the chromed japanese one and had this on preorder.

It's those Classic Optimus Prime trailer stripes on the wings that make this version all class.

I thought the orange was supposed to give off a burnt look on the guns

It does give a pretty cool effect. Maybe I won't need to paint it all that much if I do get it...
Jason Blue Boost
Getting this figure free with my Amazon points
Starscream Gaga
I have the original version of this figure and I like this version better, Grr. Mine looks so bland in comparison.
RedAlert Rescue
Love the Stripes - if I have some spare cash when it drops in price a little I might bite.
zalten
Has any one received their Prime's yet. I want to see pics!
stevil33
I had this on pre-order since July.........was gonna cancel that pre-order as decided I didn't want it anymore.
Amazon have been sending updates as to expected shipping dates all along and said we'll email you with more info as it comes so I thought I'd get another before it ships.....WRONG!!! its on route to me as we speak!!! shucks
amd098

zalten
Thanks for the pics. I cannot wait to get mine

I was told this morning by my wife that upon arrival, this will be wrapped and placed under the xmas tree, along with the three MP's showing up this week.

I was a little worried when Amazon posted their own pictures and Prime didn't have the gas tanks in Vehicle or Robot mode that Hasbro had decided to just not include them. Not TOO worried, but a little.

The confirmation that he does come with the tank gun is nice!

Now, once I get this guy, I just need to get a couple of those swords he can hold and I will be happy!

If I could find the Striker sheild somewhere, then I think I would have a perfect movie OP! (Don't really need the Striker guns, not with the BFG of the Jetwing sticking out right where they would in Vehicle mode).
Smashs
Ooooh... The paint on the guns and wings is metallic. Didn't realize that until I opened the amazon box.
