    I'm really quite glad he's an Autobot. Maybe it's because I'm still annoyed that the Black Henkei Convoy was faction-swapped for retail release, or maybe I'm tired of Nemesis Primes, but I think it's more that this gold-and-grey scheme just seems more heroic (well, despite its previous usage.)

    Oh gosh I want.

    Shame that it's coming out next month. I doubt I'll have the money since I have presents to buy. hjhgjkjhj

    please let this guy stay fairly priced for a while.

    Neat. Kinda reminds me of an Elite Guard TFA Prowl color scheme or something. Probably won't get this though.

    Robotkingdom is selling this for $60. BBTS' price is $80. That's a rather large discrepancy.

    Shipping it from Hong Kong brings the price closer to even.

    He will be a lovely complement to some pre-existing toys :

    And the unified colour removes the problem of the red ankles so he's even more handsome as a result.

    He's so close to darkside(which I have) that I'm not sure what purpose it would serve to buy it. But damn he looks good in those colors, so I guess that's all that matters.

    Frankly I wish he changed his colors in the show.

    are the gold pieces painted or are they really gold plastic?

    i am just concerned if he will be prone to GPS..

    i'm still getting him, regardless.. :D

    The last toy that was affected by GPS was, what, Movie Protoform Starscream? I understand it's still going to be a concern with newer releases due to past experiences, but at this point I'm fairly confident that Hasbro and TakaraTomy know enough to prevent that from happening in the future (should those pieces actually be gold plastic, of course). I'll worry once I'm given reason to.
