    I got mine off of RPF.com. I think I got the last one as they aren't making these as much anymore. The current price is $470. Pretty steep but I have wanted this for a long time. They also had a weathered version that looks great, but I went for the"pristine" version since it was available.

    Limited Run - 1:1 Transformers Matrix of Leadership - $470/set shipped!

    Finally got a Peru-Kill via Visual Toys Knock-off.

    This is my first time with the mold.
    I like him more than I expected. I do notice the inaccurate proportions, the shallow, slightly off details and the limited articulation. That said, he's a lot of fun and had a fair amount of character. He looks great with Challenger.

    Edit: I said BSL, but it is the Visual Toys Knockoff.

    Open it on your own terms man.

    It's your figure and your collection. Don't let us pressure you into anything. If you want him sealed, keep him sealed.

    Obviously we're all curious but do what YOU want.

    How's the quality on the BSL version? I've been on the fence about picking it up.

    Just to add more, the Matrix is very high quality but there is a bit of glue residue left on small parts of the outside that I plan to fix. It also comes with a blue LED but I haven't put it in yet.

    Thanks to RPF I plan on doing an Allspark build! Should be fun lol.

    @lonewolf96

    When was that London Toy show again?

    Because if it's close, there has been no announcements of Hasbro attending. So I guess they aren't and we may have to wait 2 more months.

    When I look at the site, it looks like there aren't any Toy companies attending. It's just a normal comic book convention.

    Amen! I've been going back and trying to appreciate some of the earlier figures that I haven't touched much recently as a way of coping with not having any movieverse releases right now.
    Amazing! Back when ebay had a lot of 1:1 replicas on there I almost pulled the trigger several times but never ended up getting one. Congrats buddy!
    I'd love one. I'd even be down for some extra weapons if they come up with some cool stuff. He was such a tough MFer in the movie.
    I use gundam markers. They're specifically made for painting plastic model kits and figures so they work great.
    I chopped off his cannon and added some paint, but I really wish he had ankle articulation more than anything. Problem is most of his stuff is pinned. That OSKO is too big for me and also it's been taking way too long to release.

    Mcm isn't a toy convention, it's a standard comic book/sci fi convention. There won't be any reveals there, it's more about guests from shows and picking up merchandise rather than talking about stuff yet to come out.

    DNA could make a kit for pinned parts, similar to Ironhide. There is hope!

    FanExpo in Toronto is a comic book convention but Hasbro revealed the Wave 5 SS Deluxes there.

    he's a really good figure, not gonna lie. Problem is, he's way too tall. In Age of Extinction, Lockdown was only a bit taller than/ the same height as Ratchet

    Gosh darn it. You just had to remind me how cool looking Leader Sentinel was. Seeing that he's such an integral character to DOTM, I have high hopes we will see a Leader toy for him probs as soon as Early 2020 (Alongside the Overload and Scavenger). I honestly would be fine if it was just a retool of this toy, but with better tabbing and, you know, not being a nightmare to transform.
