    You have my rapt attention. I am very interested.

    I sure would love a TM Megatron though… hint hint.

    Yes! So happy this is coming out. Depending on price I may have to pick this up.

    So, tell me of Perfect Effect. Do they put effort into the boxes? Do they come with any kind of reading material like comics? Are they pricey?

    This and tiger hawk and tm2 megatron were my only BW figures. The rest just didn't appeal to me but I grew up on g1. Those of you younger guys are probably hyped for this though. It looks great but it'll probably be out of my dollar range for beast wars. Now make a modern 2000 RID omega prime and then you can just have my wallet

    It's nice, but the wings are way too long.

    That will make for a cool jet mode.

    Yeah definitly gonna have to buy this guy. I still love my Optimal Optimus but god that one looks so clean and even if the cannons look really weird in robot mode we have the most important victory them being able to fold away against his back and not jut out like half a foot.

    When PE says 4 modes, I can see one good mode, one meh mode, and two lousy modes.

    Wow, that's beautiful! Too bad the price will be high. The problem with the original OPOP was that his gimmicks were a hindrance..

    Yeah but if bot mode is the good mode ... it's a pretty darn good "good" mode.

    Kinda like Gewalt.

    Their boxes are decent. Warden (Fort Max) and RC (Arcee) both have nice packaging. RC came with a pack in comic, I believe. I don't think Warden did (please correct me if I'm wrong). The instructions are decent - they do a better job than most at making clear exactly which finicky piece is supposed to move where. The PE upgrade sets are all solid boxes (no windows or anything) but everything is well secured. Fort Max also came with a display stand.

    As to price - well, um, they aren't cheap. They tend towards the high to middle-high end of third party price per size. I don't have Leonidas (whose first run was apparently rife with issues), but Warden and Arcee were worth the price to me - poseable, well-armed, and the size I want. At 9 or 10 inches and that bulky, he'll be more expensive than Warden, one would imagine.

    Well, since the alt mode isn't really supposed to look like any real vehicle, it would be easier to do. I mean jet mode is supposed to look silly!

    I just want Primal Prim colors, preferably with a comic accurate head... He can go on my Universe Wreckers shelf with Impossible Toys Tapper!

    Oh shit! Yes please Perfect Effect! If this falls in line with their usual pricing of around $150, count me in!
