    Wonder if you will be able to tell the difference, once it's in package, against the original.

    Most of the new paint apps would probably be either covered or in the back of the box.

    Oh the humanity! Just leave it alone if you can't do better.... Remember, IMPROVE on the original = better selling point

    Nice looking, but I really can't have 2 of such large figures.

    Wow. Just as I expected. Too bad they didn't go the "Motormaster" or "Nemesis Prime" route though... Even Ultra Magnus would have been nice with white replacing the red and gray with the blue staying...

    Ah well. $40 bucks to put toward other stuff. :D

    I'm passing but only because I've already got Prime. if I had to choose, I would've held out for this guy.

    I really liked Final Battle Prime from Armada too. any new play on the colors to make my prime shelf from looking like a blotch of red and blue is cool by me.

    I'm kinda glad. If they're just sticking this out to please Wal-Mart, I'd rather they barely changed it so I don't have to buy it again than create a lackluster repaint I'd be in two minds about.

    Still, you can't help but feel that the abandoned RiD Prime Defensor repaint could have had this release slot...

    Just remember.

    These big stores want *SHOW CHARACTERS* ... they do not want a large shelf warmer. Because by the time WalMart puts them on the shelves, Hasbro has already made their $$ by getting those stores to buy them. The trick is getting enough people to buy the product so you have to make more so the stores buy more.

    This was obviously done just to keep Optimus Prime on the shelf.

    Well, that's thoroughly not exciting. I've got the Sonic Convoy giftset for my spiffy version of the mold, sure as heck don't need this one.

    Then why not just keep the original Cybertron Prime in the cases? This Cybertron Prime repaint just seems like a lazy grab for more bucks, and I've almost never said that about Hasbro.

    Yeah, this'll be the first Cybertron toy I'll be passing on. And I even bought frigging Backstop.

    I like it more than the original colours. Although, they should have reversed the colours (blue on top and red on the bottom) or given him Rodimus-like flame colours.
