    Great :) 
    Please let us know your thoughts about it when it does. I’m sure it will be a real benefit for those here on the fence (including myself) if it’s worth the buy.
    Thanks

    Because of this thread I went for it. Half the price of the original on Alibaba. I have like 5 figures on the way now after a hiatus for a couple months. Lol

    I was really interested, until a friend with the original said he was a nightmare to transform. Also, the cheapest I can find shipped to the U.S. is $57 from showz

    He wasn’t referring to GCreations Ultra Maxmas (Optimus Prime)? In comparison many have stated this prime is fun and easy to transform....

    Yeah I think your friend was talking about the Gcreation prime, widely known for being a pain in the ass.

    that's most likely the gcreation version, which is indeed an unnecessary pain in the ass. this daban however, is a Ko of the generation toys version.

    I just looked again, you guys were right! He was actually talking about getting them confused :)  Now that I'm interested again, what's the cheapest place to get it?

    Watch emgos review he loves it. He even compares it to that g creation 1 everyone complains about. G creations looks a bit better personally. But this is a good buy..

    I had the GT version, he was super solid and a fun transformation. If you like the look then you'll like him.
