    I'd like an actual finale deco instead of the Powerlinx toy, but I think that's less likely than Universe Magnus or Sentinel Maximus.

    Is the only difference that the finale deco is a darker shade of blue?

    Really prefer the Powerlinx deco over the Final Battle.

    It's more different for an Optimus mould being different shades of blue. Final Battle to me looks a bit too much like a nemesis deco in cartoon colours (ie. not black but very dark grey). Thus if I wanted the FB colours, I'd mix a Nemesis release with the PL version. Wouldn't be exact, but likely closer than regular the PL deco.

    Yeah, it looks like the Nemesis deco for very obvious reasons due to what happens in the finale.

    I also don't want to buy two figures I don't entirely want to get one figure that I still don't really want.

    I’m weird in that I like Toy PowerLinx with the red mask.

    That said I can respect the differences in Final Battle, it really has its own flavor.

    Thing is? While I want this figure I don’t want it multiple times. Nemesis looked good, PL looks good, heck even SG looks good but I just think that UM would be enough especially at 200$ a pop.

    As someone who owns Power Commander - if you view it in the right lighting, it looks surprisingly close to "final battle." It gets there for me at least.

    I like the star saber team much better in all red.
    Feels closer to how the show cheated the sword.

    They should have gave an effect part to make the Star Saber look like this:

    Yeah, that Hate Plague Saber looks very interesting to me.

    I would like to see that in Purple as well as a few other colors. Bring on the Dark Saber, the Chaos Saber, etc…

    Looking to sell off my V1 Naval Commander with the fixed parts from Fans Hobby. Sparkplug has a tab damaged, but it doesn't affect transformation. $230 plus shipping in the Continental US.

    Am I missing something, or does the Super Mode not have a proper lock-in to secure the pants and body?

    Kinda have to roll the cab into place. Secure the front then push the back down.

    Gotcha, I'll have to try that later.
    And as for taking it out, is there a safe way to do so or do I have to pray to Primus that the tabs don't snap-?

    I tend to reverse the connection. I noticed some stress marks on the front most clips pretty early on but they never broke, and the back one is rather sturdy.
