    A poseable chain for Battletrap in a set that's way cheaper than buying Optimus Primal, neat! Plus guns!


    No need for Scourge's parts, though. Maybe not Nightbird's either, waiting to see how holiday sales go with her.

    Same, ROTB fembots seem to sell pretty poorly so I'm hoping I can get nightbird at a discount

    ...and it's basically impossible to find one at $50 now; hell, it's basically a fool's errand to try to find Battletrap for $25.

    Hence why I'm glad I nabbed both and held onto them, vindicated by DNA

    Primal is a really great figure, though.

    OK, so 42 (Legacy Prowl) was the last DNA released. Then 43 is Gamer Edition Prime, 44 is SS-102 Prime, 45 is Armada Op, 46 is Scourge, 47 is Core Volcanicus, and this is 49. So... what's 48?

    Oh, I missed that. Without derailing this thread too much, can you just tell me if it's a Nova version of the gap fillers and leg extenders they did for Galaxy Prime and Magnus, or did they hint that they might do something more like new wings?

    Its probably just the same set they did for every other use of this mold but maybe with new wing if that's possible.

    Agreed. He's one of my top figures for the year, in fact.

    I coulda swore I saw it teased in either the upgrade thread or something, i looked on their facebook too, but I can't find it. I guess I must've imagined it. That's my bad.

    Really hoping for a KO release of Scourge and Battletrap with all of these upgrades added to them.

    IKR?!? Realistically though I’m willing to bet that you can always sell it in parts or as a whole set.

    Really satisfying transformation that's not your typical "flip torso piece, swing legs and feet around, flip in beast head, flip out robot head" deal, cool chain even if it isn't movie-accurate, nice bonus ace for your Prime if you're among the lucky bastards who got one.
    Nova Prime will probably shelfwarm for a while; I'm waiting for confirmation of a DNA set before biting the bullet on him.

    welp it looks like im getting myself some Heralds of Unicron.

    I wasn't originally gonna bother with Brattletrap Nightbird or Scourge. but seeing what Scourge looks like with both kits? i cant help myself, he looks amazing.

    Seeing as how I'm now getting this kit just for the Scourge pieces. might as well pick up Nightbird and Battletrap too for the hell of it. I've got no issue going to Black Mamba for Scourge or Battletrap either, no way in hell im paying after market prices for either of those.

    I checked on ShowZ's listing and it mentions that this kit will allegedly have a pre-order bonus. (Like some past DNA kits)

    And it's an extra set of Purple Nightbird Swords?:

    I don't see this mentioned on DNA's Facebook, so I have no clue where they got the photo from. Could just as easily be a silly Photoshop. If it is true though, then Coolio. More stabby sticks is always fun.

    I checked their listing for Scroogle's kit too and it makes a similar claim. No low quality jpeg to back this one up though.

    Ngl, I wish that the scourge pieces retained the sculpted in insignias, on the shoulders and the arms.

    But then again, silver reprolabels could always fix that issue

    You don't HAVE to do anything.
    Yes! This is at the top of my wish list! Well really just the beast mode legs, the robot mode legs are almost perfect.
    Yes I noticed that too! Weird bonus. Like that random clear head for shatter. Did the factory make a bunch of swords in the wrong color plastic or something?

    I wonder if the bonus swords will be transparent purple plastic or if they'll be painted in metalflake purple?

    Metallic purple swords could look really cool with Core-Deluxe Nightbird, who has metallic purple paint on her visor.
