    Nearly all of ER Optimus is held together with pins rather than screws, and the mushroom pegs are clamped between two pieces to avoid gaps. So if you're wanting to switch pieces between ER Prime and this one, you'll probably have to be pretty comfortable punching out a bunch of pins

    Well if this is going to be an Amazon exclusive it'd better be released alongside Bad Comedy Starscream. If we're going to sell corpses from the movie might as well go all out.

    It comes with a bonus button you can press to play the voice of Bambi calling out "Mother? Mother?"

    What a complete and utter waste of a figure. I can't believe that Hasbro decided to do Deadimus Prime as the "Alternate Universe" figure, instead of RID'01, or Armada, or literally any other Optimus Prime in existence.

    I'd get this if it was just the cab. I don't want the trailer. Ah well, guess I'm never getting this mold.

    Hey hey, its technically an Armada comic reference. Ya'know the G1 Optimus Prime shoved into the Armada universe to warn them about Unicron so it's toootallly justified and hey they gave us an Armada reference so we can't complain too much right?

    I hope you all can hear the sarcasm in my voice.
    What a lazy homage

    This would have made some sense as just a cab release.

    I’m more interested in how the conversation went between the Hasbro Marketers and the Amazon toy buyer about this thing, than I am in the actual figure it self. :lol

    Oh man. I was hoping they were two different releases. I didn't realize it was a leak for the same thing. I would have bought the crap out of an SG Prime in this mold. What a disappointment sandwich .

    Don't play with my emotions. Is it just an albino Prime. Or is it an ultra magnus done proper. Even if it was this mold with an armor up gimmick I would bite!

    Amazon: Okay, so the Nemesis deco went over great during PotP, can we do something like that again?
    Hasbro: What if it was kind of like that, a black deco OP, but, you know, the colors were a bit more muted?
    Amazon: Sounds good, will he have a cool name?
    Hasbro: Um, sure, how about Alternate Universe OP?
    Amazon: This is still sounding great. Anything else we need to know?
    Hasbro: Obviously, the theme of the line is battle damage, so we'll give him a bit of extra damage
    Amazon: Perfect, so he'll look like he just won a great battle!
    Hasbro: Well, not won . . .

    Doesn't work that way due to how the molds were done. Some of the robot parts are on the same die as the trailers. That means it's either Prime and trailer or none of them.
