    It's listed 179 CNY on Taobao, so probably about $35 retail price in the US

    Oh, a bit higher than i expected. But considering this is an original mold, make sense i suppose.

    Just grabbed one off Show.Z; I’m a little wary, since it feels like this guy sort of dropped out of nowhere and there hasn’t even been a review of him yet that I can find, but for under $45 I suppose I can take a chance.

    I collect CHUG mostly, and there aren’t a lot of great options for a modern Optimus out there so I really hope this guy finally fills the Prime-shaped hole in my collection. I don’t mind a little size difference between the two, but I’m a bit concerned that Tyrantron is going to look like a giant next to him!

    Such a random figure. No one knew it was coming until it dropped, and next to no one is selling it.
    But I will have one. Oh yes I shall.

    This one is very tempting indeed, but that head sculpt hasn’t grown on me yet...

    This looks very interesting. I collect prime, so I will more than likely pick one up. I'd like to wait to see a review first though, to see if there's anything about the build to watch out for. I'm all in on the design

    Yes, same here. I really want to get it, but not if it's a floppy mess and doesn't tab in right. Do any of the Chinese sites have a video review?

    Just saw this posted on a Facebook forum, so I thought I would bring it on over here. The user also mentioned having to tighten a couple screws in the shoulder, but that it fixed the issue he was seeing perfectly.

    I got mine today and it's surprisingly well-made. The plastic feels better than their KO GT Optimus. And it has ratcheted forward/backward hips. The rest of the joints are friction, but toleranced really well. There's even a bit of butterfly. My only nitpick is there doesn't seem to be a way to peg the flaps in on the sides of the legs for bot mod.

    This figure is an original mold. The reason that other figure was brought up is that the same company making this voyager/deluxe prime made a KO of that generation toys prime.
