    Mine's shipped from HLJ but I didn't choose express shipping so I have no idea the ETA.

    Exact same order and ETA here. With combined shipping Prime came out to about $58 shipped, not bad. Excited to get it in hand and see the improvements over the Voyager.

    Oh maybe Toyworlds Orion? They also make a Primorion thats more G1. Its probably the 1st one. I have the Nemesis version but not the red blue one.

    I think there was a much paler blue red version as well that might of homaged the Marvel Comics Optimus Prime perhaps(?).

    That's the one he's thinking of.

    You're correct on the releases, too.

    Original G1 colors: Orion.
    Marvel Comics colors: Orion/Hegemon 2-pack (TFSource exclusive with pinkish reds, light blues bone white kind of gray).
    Primorion is indeed the Masterpiece scale figure that's more akin to MP-01 in size.

    Quicker than mine. Because TFSource doesn't do same day shipping, mine won't arrive until Monday.

    Is this figure better than Weijiang M01 in any way?

    Well, he's not grossly out of scale with everything, so that may be a plus to you.

    Shoulder pads are more accurate and the transformation is 99 times easier.

    I don't think it is and I think it's unrealistic to expect it to be. This one is clearly a mass market release in Japan whereas the Weijiang mold targets the MPM crowd more specifically.

    I have a feeling this leader figure designed for AOE initially but Takara couldn't fit it into their release schedule in time but saw an opportunity to do so now for the Bumblebee movie.
