    I've been wondering what Generations Orion Pax would look like with a Prime head.

    This looks very nice as well.

    Eh, imho, its not so much that as it is that this kit undoes what I find endearing/unique about the bug-eyed tommy-gun carrying Prime.

    How about with G1 encore Optimus Prime?

    Would also love to see a pic of this with the G1 encore optimus prime, please?

    I don't get the hate for this guy. Aside from the legs not retracting, and the questionable head sculpt, it's a perfectly good toy.

    and upgrading something 'okay' like this Prime makes a hell of a lot more sense than upgrading something that was already good in the first place.

    No offense to the people who like this toy. But this is one of the worst Optimus mold ever put out. I remember when my friend literally ran this over with his car just because of the hatred on the toy. :lol 

    Anywho, this upgrade is pretty much pointless, I respect the company who tried maybe I'll just leave goodluck on the sales.

    What's up with the grey/white heads? I thought it was just a prototype thing until I saw the package shots.

    I have the SE version of this prime. I wonder if the blue of the new head will match well enough. I pre-ordered the set, so I guess I'll find out. Hopefully they put up final color pics soon!

    Yeah for what you get for $20 I see this kit as having plenty of potential for customs parts even if you don't intend to use it for the intended figure.

    Yeah, this looks nice! Wonder if BBTS will get theirs in stock any time soon? I sort of wonder how this head would scale on FoC Optimus?

    Looks terrific! Glad I ordered one. I love that they included a head for the SE version of that Prime.

    It's kind of how this whole thing works. I paid $18 for two heads for Kup, so really, this ain't all that bad.

    My set just dropped in my POL. I'm going to wait for Gauntlet to arrive, then I'll ship it.

    Not sure why, but this looks like a cover to a rap album.

    FOC Prime looks like he is gonna rip a mofo up with his matrix.
