    this is cool. But I'll hold out for a none transforming movie collectible from takara or somewhere else where the robots actually look the way they do in the movie. I really can't seem them NOT making a diecast series of these robots some time in the future. i'm sure it'd be about 150 bucks per figure though, but i'd pay

    He will be mine, I'm glad I held off on the first version. I was expecting the new head to look a little better, but oh well. Bring on Megs.

    It's something called an opinion


    Hasbro was designing the toys before the movie came out, they didn't have time to design a sword or create a better head

    Leave it to HasBLO. If you want both weapons, spend $80+. I have a feeling that some boxes are going to have missing parts out on the shelves. Check before you buy, folks! I'm going to stick with the first release, if I can get one before it's too late.

    I believe parts have actually painted silver, judging how the light is reflecting off some of the parts, but not others.

    The entire front bumper/grill assembly, the wheels, the air filters (the small drums on the sides of the hood), those erm shade things over the windscreen and the sides of the fuel tanks (also the battery compartment lids) appear to be painted silver. On the last one you can tell by how the shade changes halfway through the smaller toolbox near the back wheels.

    In robot mode his thighs and crotch are silver. MAYBE his stomach grill.

    About half of them APPEAR to be, but I think most of the toolbox/step areas have been left alone.

    The ears are longer.

    I don't have the original, so I can't tell how much difference on the paint application and the new head. The arm mounted gun looks alright , the sword is great. and I am now tempted to get it !!

    seriously, on all points. what does your NW Prime look like now? as soon as I find on, I'll snag him, but I'll be doing quite a bit of painting to make him look right. *grumble* stupid overseas NW is so much better than ours *grumble grumble*

    The sword is nice and all but why is it blue. Why is everything a Double edge sword with Hasbro? "We can give you what you want but not totally"

    I like the head mold. I wish I could see it close up.

    I'm glad I waited for Prime. This one shall be mine!

    I got my happy blue Megs for 15 dollars, so I guess I won't complain about it. I don't want another one, anyway.

    Meh. The sword is cool but thats about it, the head doesnt seem hugely different to me (one without a faceplate would have been cool). I'll pass on this since I have the original.

    Im with you. I just picked up Nightwatch Prime simply because he looked bad a**.
    I am dissapointed that the LED's are not blue like the box shows, but that's what customizing is for. Too bad there is no sword in the initial release of Nightwatch. I dont have an unlimited budget, but I want them all.

    yeah, that's kind of 1/[email protected]$$ed that they only did some spots in silver.

    I'd kind of planned on picking up this version, but the underwhelming deco is leaving me a bit ocld, plus these pix remind me why i passed on this mold in the first place, his proportions are just terribly dumpy.

    Laservision Prime FTW...

    The head doesn't look to bad. I still don't mind the first one. THe sword is great, but not great enough to make me re-buy him. Especially with money being super tight right now. However I might save money for Megatron, and Green Ranger figures.
