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.
I'll buy the smaller one instead.
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.
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.
This thing is the next clearance buy they should have done more way more
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...
Could be worse...could be pee-colored again.
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.
UGGG WHAT THE [email protected]#*ING HELL IS THIS? IS THIS HOW THEY SCEW UP 1 OF THE GREASTEST PRIMES EVER?
HOW COMPLETELY EVIL!!!!!
Bah. This sucks majorly.
I'll keep the original one THANNNNK YOU!
i think it looks better then the original, just my opinion.
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.
I love it. Haters............
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.
