    Got confirmation mine shipped from TFSafari! Shouldn't take too long to arrive. I'm just hoping it will have the updated head. I can live with it if it doesn't, but I'd prefer it be the v2. Everything else I'm seeing about the figure is hitting all the right beats for me.

    I caved and ordered one of these. Mostly for the truck mode if I'm being honest, cause even with the DNA kit it doesn't look great. I am considering swapping some parts with my official to make the "best" version, or I may sell one of them once I get it in hand.

    Pretty much at the same place. I just caved and ordered one as well, despite having the official. I may swap some pieces between the two when I receive this.

    The only pieces I see myself swapping are the head and the shoulder panels with the Autobot logo (provided the red and silver matches)

    This made me buy Sentinel, Ironhide and Megs as well so lots of goodness on the way :D  Really wish BW would do some Deluxe glowups too.

    Unfortunately the Baiwei has more metallic paint compared to the official.

    Yeah usually I paint my figures but I've been lazy with this one. It's not my favorite version of Optimus, design-wise, although I still like it. I want the lower body of the KO since it does so much to make the truck mode better. Upper body I can keep the official or use the KO depending on how it looks in person. I'll probably install the DNA kit shoulders/smoke stacks onto the KO or whichever version I like more in person. We shall see.

    Can someone confirm if the jetwing attachment will/won't work with Studio series-44 jet pack? I dont have the baiwei jetwing and PrimevPrime said that he couldnt make it work so i wanted to double check. Thanks in advance!

    I think what he said is true because baiwei trailer KO it's a bit oversized.i don't have the original official trailer but I'm sure primevsprime already tried it. He only have the official one

    My trailer shipped first, but I'm not complaining

    Excellent first impressions. Assembled Noah, but I didn't get a chance to do anything with prime before I had to leave.

    Sticker sheet was a nice freebie. 1000007590.jpg

    ‘Why throw away your life so recklessly Prime?’
    ‘That’s a question YOU should ask yourself Megatron’


    Though given the proximity of the second Energon sword to Megatron’s head it stands to reason that Megatron will not be asking this question for much longer :)

    I tried painting Noah.
    Although his joints don't move much, he is useful for reenacting movies.
    However, since it is too big compared to a truck, it might have been better if it was smaller.

    My ss109 delivery date was in March, then charged to May, then charged back to March, and back to May. I give up and just wait for a message. Hasbro pulse is crazy. If they charged the date one more time....:confused:

    Yes it does! I got mine via In Demand Toys here in the UK because it was sold out on Hasbro Pulse (yet again :(  )

    Sorry you had to go through that, given how fast both SS109 BBM Leader Class Megatron and SS102 ROTB Voyager Class Optimus Prime sold out on Hasbro Pulse Id have expected better service from them
