    This is pretty cool, but I bet it'll be way too pricey around here.

    But seeing this makes me think that either eHobby or Takara themselves will probably use the Legends Targetmaster Kup as Orion Pax and include a repainted Wheelie as Dion.

    Poor Dion, he's never had a toy that actually looked like the show character and I doubt it's worth making a new mold just for a dude that dies after one episode.

    A pre-Earth Optimus two pack. Cool. Will probably get it just for WFC Optimus.

    Yeah... at this point we should probably accept that he always looked like a yellow and blue Wheelie.

    This is really funny because this isn't the first time Orion Pax has remolded from Kup.

    If the Mission to Cybertron Optimus Prime two pack is any indication, this will more than likely be $40. Might wait for it to go on sale. I missed out on getting WFC Prime back in 2010, but I don't want it that badly.

    I'd get this just for the WFC Prime. One of the best deluxe figures ever.

    Man I'm kinda eyeing this set for WFC Prime, but I honestly don't think TR Kup looks all that great as Pax. Still I'm sure they're gonna want $60 CAD or something for this set. Will have to wait and see.

    It's pre-Prime and pre-Earth Optimus in tribute to his role in the movie.

    That's kinda the point. Like, Takara and Hasbro probably came up with this together and Hasbro sold it here and Takara will sell it with the Wheelie/Dion reference.

    As long as this set isn\'t too much more expensive than te price of two deluxes I\'ll get this.  I was never able to get the WFC figure and now he is expensive.

    Only thing I don't like is that pastel blue on Orion's legs.

    This is really cool! I like the other Orion Pax figure better but I like this "evolution" and "tribute" marketing gimmick. The OP mentions that TR Kup got remolds for this Orion Pax figure- what are they? Or is it just the head?

    I'm looking forward to more of these types of sets for other characters. :)

    Nice! I'm not a fan of that WFC mold, but I'll gladly get another one to get that Orion. Love the Kup mold.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but back when Hasbro was really pushing the Aligned Universe Continuity - WFC Prime eventually came to earth and evolved into the movie Prime look - so there's a connection.

    Anyway it looks like they're using a brighter plastic for WFC? The old one looked a bit dull. Not sure if due to photoshop though.

    It's not really to my taste, either. I'll consider removing it and repainting those areas in a darker blue, when I pick this up.
