    I'm not absolutely in love with this mold and I find it strange that VNR wasn't used.....
    But dagnabit, I love the Elite guard color scheme, can this be a trend for Target....like a Red Black and White Armada Prime please?!

    So hyped for this release. Still waiting for Laser Magnus, Combat Hero Optimus, movie verse Optimus, and a more accurate RID Scourge hilariously named "Laser Nemesis Prime" Hasbro.

    Imma keep them since (headcanon time) Yokohama Convoy got sponsored by Target for the Velocitron Races.

    So... don't say your opinion about a Transformer release on a transformers website, especially negative ones because it's like you're crying like a baby? That's not how fan sites like this work. It's open to all opinions as long as they're civil towards each other. Calling people babies for not liking something is not what I would call civil. Using this mold more than once is problematic because it was bad in the first place. A cheap mish mash of new and old parts to make something that vaguely resembles a figure from the past but is worse in almost every way besides leg articulation.

    Wait. If they removed prime's weapons you'd think they could just make this multipack also come with some Energon cubes & Roller from that Centurion Multipack?

    Nope, exactly the same molding. The color sure creates different effects

    There is a official option for one rn technically: ocean decals did a Pepsi prime set for er prime. They're sponsored so it is a official Pepsi prime

    I would enjoy this a lot more without the Target branding.

    Almost tempted to grab a Santa Prime and do this myself, but I wouldn't have the logos or the fat dog, and also I don't really care that much. I dunno. I probably still wouldn't have been interested, so I'm just feeling disappointed for no good reason. Disregard my griping!

    Clearly you aren't the Targeted audience.

    Yeah, Target exclusives almost always get here via Toys R Us (and sometimes Gamestop too), but I'm not sure if they'll carry something Target-branded specifically.
    Movie Leadfoot was one thing, but this is another level above that. It would be kinda hilarious if they end up putting out a non-branded version of this minus the logos like they did for at least one version of movie Leadfoot.

    I actually like the color scheme enough that I'll get it. Helps that I didn't get the G2 Prime version, just Toxitron.

    In my headcanon, Optimus will be Bullseye, Autobot sharpshooter who has an array of weaponry stored in the trailer.

    I assume the $60 is how much Target is paying me to own this? Any requirements on how long I have to display it to get the full ad payout?
