    I do like that gloss on Booba Prime. Despite the implant surgery, all I care about is the engineering. Anything is better than DX9 Dutch at this moment.

    And it blows my mind that I JUST found out that Hot Soldiers Prime has all real parts. Real chest, real grill, real gas tanks. It never occurred to me until now and I've had that figure for months now.

    More and more look at NA,probably will be for the helmet shape piece attacked on forehead but his face appears quiet and contemplative,and for this and being similar to Sunbow toon are great points even if I istantly disliked that chest piece for empy space in middle.
    MS version instead appears as he's ready to another battle with Megatron ,and shows more Prime leader .
    For this I choose NA,I've already SIEGE prime and now I'd like a more toon approach to him.

    lol...wtf :eek: 

    what is on this bot that makes him so expensive. this definitely has to be a joke on their part.

    there is nothing going on with the parts count that should have him that much more than the MS prime.

    i dont know about NA's business model these days. i like to pull for all of the legend companies because it makes the whole scene better. but this kind of shit is getting a little out of hand.

    Unnecessary die-cast and Constructicon replacement parts tax.

    It's the dumbest design ever and I cannot wait to own the transparent version. You'll be able see Optimus teats from every angle.

    well diecast doesn't really add to the bots at all on the material side. we are only talking like a dollar or so here. the molds are all cut the same. but either way that's not the point.

    i just think the whole situation is fucked. take your loses as a biz and move forward. dont try and stick it to your fans

    because there is always another option on the horizon. in this case it just happens to be MS prime 2.0

    I’m curious on what Chinese sites will offer it for. The TCP price seems a bit over priced. I was expecting $100 USD.

    You might as well get an MP Prime (that's not MP-44) at that price.

    Yeah, you can get TE-01 or Magic Square MP scale or MP44 KO for that price or less.

    TE-01 was just on sale for $70, so $120 is absurd.

    Probably cheaper through AliExpress sellers, but not sure about somewhere like ShowZ or Terryy's.

    Take the recent Iron Factory Dark Cygnus release for example: TCP - $65, ShowZ - $65, Terry - $63.

    If you look at other NA products that are more recent and out. TCP has Set A constructicons for $100. I got my set off ShowZ for $75. IF could have better distribution worldwide.

    Magic Square's version was so much cheaper. I got a Prime v1 and the new trailer for around $85.
