    It’s a Chosen Prime exclusive, not BBTS. You’re going to miss out if you’re watching the wrong store.

    Bbts?? What was I on? Damnit, wrote wrong. Always get them mixed up. Thanks for the tip though.

    I’ll be watching ..CP, there, I got it right, like a hawk along with the rest of the world. Or should that be vulture? ;) 

    Still, nicest deco yet is Shiny Manus, and he’s coming any day now from Kapow so I’m not too sad if I miss out on Blue.

    You can do what I did at my first TFCon. Stay up through the night and BE SECOND IN LINE DESPITE THAT BECAUSE YOU GET ALL THE WAY TO LIKE 7 AM AND YOU HAVE TO USE THE BATHROOM AND SOMEONE GETS
    FIRST IN LINE. I loved that person regardless, it was like one of those Murphy’s Law type things. XD

    Ouch, sorry for your loss man. I’ll probably nod off, wake up in terror to see Ebay covered in Diaclone Manii for 300 dollars each, and paint my old regular one blue. If I put him on a high shelf, I can pretend it’s the exclusive.

    Man I hope CP makes a another run with a markup or something. I rather pay a little bit more since I didn't go the con rather than pay scalpers.

    I am kinda sick of Prime's original colours. I was going to order the Metallic, but after getting the TCP exclusive, I decided not to.

    Great pics, I am definitely ordering this. This mold is absolutely fantastic in all respects (except for axe pipes - I wish there were options for axe pipes or regular pipes). The silver makes the once dull grey plastic bits look amazing. I am assuming the gun is from Striker Noir. It looks a bit darker black though. Stiker's was a bit greyish.

    Nope. Looks like TCP has many left for Pre-orders. Also usually (but not always) TCP = The Chosen Prime, and CP = Captured Prey.

    I'd like to ask, the metallic surfaces are all painted over or is it some kind of "treated" plastic?

    Very good. Getting him balanced to stand up is another issue.. unless there is something to transforming the feet to keep him better planted. Its like he's on tippy toes all the time.

    Because you do have him on his tippy toes in those pics. The wheels are his heels. 3glow-5.png

    You need to adjust the joints in the feet/ankle to get them flat. There are multiple joints

    Yeah I figured. I kept trying to manipulate them like in the photo you posted and couldn't do it. I'll have to give it another try!
