    Not disagreeing with you. To be fair the guys running the aforementioned panel may simply have misunderstood the nature of the figure (i.e., is it a kit or a stand-alone figure), so I guess we're back to square one in answering that question.

    So if this is only going to be an add on kit for the Prime mold then does that mean we'll either get a blue versions or a G1 white version of PX Jupiter first before this kit comes out?

    I really hope this isn't just an add-on kit. I was all in, but I don't think I want to have to make two purchases, for this. Especially if Robotkingdom already has this up for 89.99. That means it will be over 100 everywhere else.

    Robot Kingdom has Jupiter for $79.99. So if this is being sold as just an add-on, they're charging $10.00 more than the figure it adds to. That doesn't make sense. I think it's either add-on and they're selling it together with a Jupiter/Jupiter repaint, or it's one whole figure that uses Jupiter as a base for the mold.

    Here's the thread for them.

    I've said it before, but I think this is much more like Sludge/Paddles where they are using the existing figure as the base upon which they place the new parts. It doesn't make any sense to make it an armor set. None at all

    It's going to be a full figure.

    @Onslaught24 Could you please update the first post with more pics. These are all the ones I found in the thread thus far, but the October ones don't appear to be in here yet.

    I'm surprised no one has suggested this considering some have posted in this thread they are selling the figure. What I'm expecting at this point is a Blue redeco of Jupiter (based on the FOC Ultra Magnus toy) rather than white, with armor to match the in game deco. It isn't perfect (especially for those that don't want the armor option), but it covers the most ground for FOC Ultra Magnus.

    I'll wait on this to make sure its not just an armor kit for a red Optimus, but I really doubt that they'd be selling it for same price as their full figures. I think this company will bankrupt me.

    This I can see happening. If the set actually has it so that you can have the armor upgrade but to also have an optional Magnus that's more like the original FOC toy then I'd be ok with it. Like you said it's not perfect but at least it gives you more options to use so that you're not feeling like you need to buy another Optimus in order to get WFC/FOC Magnus.

    OK; Planet X's Facebook page has set the record straight.


    Good because they sorted it out. Bad because now I'm actually thinking of buying it.
