    I want to say the one I'm thinking of is called Orion? I forget the company that made it, though.

    I don't think this thing was ever meant to compete with Wei Jiang's commander. I think the real idea behind it was that someone at Takara thought it would be cool to make a new Evasion Prime mode that was the same size as the TLK/AOE leaders but with the cool mask gimmick that Armor Knight and Calibur Prime have. It's not accurate to the Prime design in the Bumblebee movie but as a 1-off movie tie-in figure, I think it's neat and can see why it's a Takara-led initiative. They're banking on movie hype and an accurate Prime to Bumblebee's movie will probably come later in the Studio Series line as a voyager.

    To say that Wei Jiang's Commander figure is better is stating the obvious. And Takara wasn't going to make the MSRP less than TLK leaders when it's the same size as them.

    Toy World’s Orion! I have that figure. It was based off of IDW’s design before the current one. The CGI version in this new Bumblebee trailer reminds me of that figure.

    Can the hands on Legendary Prime grip the gun good or are they loose?
