    This figure is awesome. I just opened (& shot for video) the EX-GOKIN TF-03 OPTIMUS PRIME Chogokin like figure that i got on sale (thank god) brand new, but its not even close to as cool as this. It has flaws. I really like the linkage & quality behind these designs this company is pushing. Ill probably get this if i can get it for $300, maybe $350. Is theres preorders up for it now? I only see STAR SABER

    Not movie swords more like the TFPrime sword, or a version of it. The Star Saber the hilt is what makes me think of it but its also included a look a like Drift sword.

    Heh i bought 8 Hot Toys last year. I believe it goes IRONMAN MK.2, MK.4, MK.5, MK.6, SPIDERMAN HOMECOMING, AVENGERS ROCKET, TEEN GROOT, and i purchased a original MK.43 for the Hulkbuster that was canceled on me.

    This year ill only be getting Ironman MK.7, IW WAR MACHINE, & CAPTAIN MARVEL.

    Next year SPIDERMAN FAR FROM HOME BLACK/RED SUIT.

    Back to Prime i love the Animated nods that @RodimusZero pointed out 1st. Definitely want this figure

    Same. I’m only collecting still thanks to Flame Toys, Reformatted, and now, 3A DLX. Flame Toys; due to their super high-end designs, quality, and reimagined stylized designs. 3A; for super screen accurate and high-end build. Reformatted for tackling unknown characters and fun/simple transformations.

    That would literally be BEAST!!! Hahaha. I’ve heard others ask for it too on Twitter. Hopefully Flame Toys have one in work already.

    The twin orange swords that can be sheathed on his hips do not come from tf prime. I was referring to those. Thos are clearly from the movies. :)

    And I thought MP44 was expensive.

    I ordered from D4Toys for $382, but the shipping is $77.50. I use to complain to them about the shipping cost, but realized it was silly of me. I realized it is what it is. Either I like it and buy it, or don’t like it, and move on. I shipped a large Transformer to Arizona from NYC, and it cost me $50 with the cheapest option. Granted, the box was a little on the big side. Plus we get the bonus weapon which I pretend is being paid for with the shipping cost... and we get the figure at least 3 months earlier, so it’s worth it. Or you can ordered it at a TFCon D4Toys Booth and get free shipping, which I did with their Drift. I ordered Tarn from a US retail store and the wait was torture, plus I regret not getting the bonus part.

    The price is high, but it really goes towards the figure. Plus it’s a luxury item in a luxury hobby. There’s certainly figures out of my range, and I just have to remain humble knowing I’m not entitled to it.

    Okay the other ab crunches were already impressive, but look at how the ab grill is pulled and pushed along!

    God this thing is perfection. I’m loving this. To the guy who was worried they all share the same skeleton, @Retroheavy. Don’t fear. This is very original. In fact. Here’s the high res schematic I found of the inner joints.

    Right cool. This guy probably has the worst of the preorder bonuses in my opinion so I don’t mind. The price is high but I’m surprised it isn’t stupid high. I thought it was gonna be at least $400 then shipping. But he’s only a bit more expensive then drift and friends.

    Hahahaha that's funny because Prime's axe is the only bonus item released so far that I'm interested in.

    You know what I realised we need the most? An IDW Nova Prime. The 3P ones have robot modes that don't work for me because of the armour thing so a Nova Prime in this line without having to worry about transforming would be exquisite. Maybe retool Prime with retooled Star Sabre or Megatron's wings.

    I want it

    Nova Prime that's a retooled Star Saber is totally within reason.

    Maybe it's the fact that most of the body consists of white and the wings aren't simple like Flame's Megatron.

    That could be neat. What if we just get old Primes as retools? We’re already getting The Fallen from Tarn. Not the greatest parallel but just a thought.

    I’m guessing that they will repaint this guy before they try for a retool into Nova Prime.
    The question is, will they do Nemisis Prime or a SG Prime to match Drift?

    The price of this prime is justiable because of design, built and quality IMO..im not sure with MP44..but if im spending $400 on a prime, id rather have flame toys'..
