    I've still got my reissue from around the turn of the century, that came with the trailer. But the longer smoke stacks makes this extremely temping. Won't likely be able to resist if I were to see this sitting on a Walmart shelf.

    Crazy high? Sure going off size alone, but g1 prime is mostly die cast, right? That'll bump the price up.

    If we were to get a stand alone white Optimus cab, I'd rather get Powermaster Ultra Magnus from the Ginrai cab mold.

    What would've been interesting, as some sort of online exclusive, was a dark blue version from Powered Convoy or a light grey/silver version from TRoOP.

    $50, Nope; Bring on the updates.

    I passed on the previous Encore Optimus because he was too expensive, and this one is too. My Machine Wars Optimus, MP-1, and Generations are just fine.

    I bought Bee's Encore today, I think it's fine, but it's also expensive, these Encore's are a niche market after all. It kinda reminds me of those Arcade Cabinets Walmart is selling right now, very few people are going to buy those.

    I hope this is like $30 (like Rodimus and them have been) cause I'd totally get one. I don't care about trailers and all that extra fluffy, I just want a G1 Prime to add to my collection and one in box and one out of box would be great to display!

    I wonder if they'll insert him upside down or backwards? Some consistency with the Hot Rod release :)

    For $50 I’d hope he has diecast parts and includes some additional accessories like the megatron gun, a matrix, maybe vector sigma, a rocket pack, or roller.

    Wait. Is that price pure "out of the ass" speculation or is it confirmed? There's no way this thing is worth 2/3 the price of the G1 Devey.

    What in the truckasaurus??? Did someone paint that themself or did it come that way?

    Now that I think about it. $50 does seem a little steep just to have a version with the longer smoke stacks.

    Sadly, if TRU still existed we would have probably got the trailer.

    $50 is a total ripoff. But the. Again, $30 for hot rod was also a ripoff. I can do without this figure at that price
