    I actually would buy a good nova prime retool from this mold, especially if his wings has translucent ember bits like maketoys hypernovae

    I'm guessing that's the case too. Which is why I got mine from D4 back when you could still pre-order him.

    Lucky! For me personally the "exclusive" parts aren't essential, but it would've been nice to have them all the same.

    It’s a shame this is not transforming as it really looks highly detailed.

    Star Saber's seemed the most worthwhile to me. I also did the same for Optimus, simply because it's huge.

    Any word on actual release date for this guy? Everywhere seems to say August but no ones had in hand videos or anything at this point. Delayed?

    Flame toys said on 10th August on their Facebook page that it should start shipping soon. I haven't heard anything since then.

    Will be interesting to see. Chosen Primes newsletter from 08/26, has the “arriving soon” section......Star Saber is not listed. MP44 is and a couple others are. TFSource did not have it listed as arriving soon either but still shows an August delivery. I’m sure we will get it sometime soon, but would be cool if Flame gave us another update. If anyone knows of any additional news, pls post!

    I might just get this one just to color it in a proper parade color scheme, yellow on the fins on the head with the decals "E.F.S.F" / "NEWTYPE" / "AMURO RAY" just for the heck of it! I know Big daddy Okawara would approve of such.

    In all seriousness, I concur with many people here: the flame toys are nothing short of fantastic. Hoping they actually do a more accurate G1 design than the stylized ones before, though.

    Shipments start next week, orders from D4toys first. I bought him from Kapow, I guess I can expect to receive the figure in 2-3 weeks.

    So about the same size as Tarn. Looks great, cannot wait to get him alongside my drift and Tarn on the shelf.

    It's bigger than I thought compared to Drift and Kadmos, I'm glad. This also confirms that Planet X Deathsaurus could be a good match for him.
