    Seconded.

    And to answer a previous question about the chrome on the feet, I have Premium TF1 Prime w/ the chromed grill/feet and I have had absolutely no problems w/ the chrome getting scratched or damaged. To be fair though, he mostly lives on a glass shelf inside a display case, so he isn't being put up to daily abuse or anything. The point is, the chrome on the feet looks mighty fine to me. I really truly hope they do a blinged out version of Prime for evrey movie. I love em.

    EDIT: Oh and between Buster and Amazon Black Prime from the movie and Black MP Prime, the rest of this year is full of awesome Prime-ness but is definitely going to be expensive.

    Possibly, but I'd imagine it wouldn't be without compromises. For example, a Prime with the remolded head and cannon, but without any of the metallic sheen on it or paint changes. Keep in mind that Takara can get away with embellishing because they have much smaller production runs and they're charging a lot more.

    To quote Homer Simpson: "SWEET, MERCYFULL CRAP"!!! :jawdropper: 

    If I see anymore photos of this beautiful figure (especially with that gun which, by the way, I yearn to have), I might has well have a nervous breakdown. :drool: 

    I can't wait any longer for this figure to come to San Antonio, TX much less the rest of the U.S of A.! :cry 

    Can anyone please tell me when it will hit the selves? :(

    I really want to get this. However the lack of a faceplace and the probability that HasTak will release a more accurate version for TF3, I'm going to take my chances and wait to see what they come up with for the third film. I'm already content with my Hasbro ROTF Leader Prime.

    Ahhh, got it. I guess I just got it confused with all the awesome customs on these boards. I'm still happy with the one gun. Thanks for the clarification.

    Nice repaint! IMHO the use of the chrome bits do not detract from the toy one bit. My only gripe is the face-guardless and mouth-revealing head sculpt... :-/
    Oh well, cant have them all your way... :D  :p  ;) 

    Either way, I wont just go out and rush to buy him just yet... :confused2

    That is just amazing. Maybe similar to the regular Leader Prime, but the improved paint apps, chrome, and gun tempt me to drop the cash from him.
