    Mine arrived in 1-day to Los Angeles but is stuck in customs. Ughhh. Hopefully I receive it by Monday. Anubis is yours arriving today?

    I'm kinda glad I kept my Hasbro Leader class Optimus. The FWI-4 is flat gray and meant for Hasbro OP and not at all silver schemed like Buster Optimus Prime.

    How do the arm cannons fit onto Prime? I noticed you had the UFO hands and wanted to know if there were clearance issues.

    It was always meant to look this way. It's meant to match DA-28 Striker shown in the pictures. It was never meant to be a premium silver and chrome paint job to match Buster Prime or APS-01.

    I don't own a DA-28 Striker Prime. Is the gray the same to the common Hasbro Leader Class ROTF Optimus? Or is it different?

    It is a really nice kit, but I had to use my Amazon Jetwing Prime to go with it. So now I'm going to replace my Jetfire combo ROTF Prime with a Buster Prime so that I can have the chrome accents with the FWI-3 kit.

    Thanks for the info. After seeing gen1autobot's pic, it actually looks better on the ROTF Prime as the grays contrast.

    I can't believe this was at Botcon. I was there and completely missed finding one. Mine just cleared customs so hopefully I have it by tomorrow. Shipping from Robot Kingdom is fast! I may skip out on BBTS and TFSource if the shipping is well packaged and arrives this fast/early.

    Mine's supposed to be in today! I've ordered from them before and I'm pretty sure this is the fastest I've ever gotten anything from them!

    I just checked my USPS tracking and it says "Notice Left (No Authorized Recipient Available.)" I guess I'm not getting mine today. FML!!

    Was surprised to find my package when I arrived at home. I love my postmaster for trying to reach me twice, after one failed attempt. Very happy with the speed of RobotKingdom's shipping too. I will be doing business again with them soon. 2 days from Hong Kong to California (not counting the hold up in customs over the weekend) is pretty great. This set is pretty awesome. The sheer size of the wing span and mass is amazing in person. Pics just do not do this product justice.

    Yes, the Takara Tomy version is based on a concept art that did not make it to the movie.

    The FWI-4 is absolutely beautiful. I would have wanted it moreso if it can compact itself to fit inside the UFO leader trailer, but as the product is, its already an impressive sight to behold. I am really curious on how stable the large wings are. They seem really large compared to the very small ratchet joints that hold it.

    I'm wondering does it fit on top of the UFO trailer or inside the ring somehow like the FW3? I'll need to get this after I come back from vacation......
