    I think the crown looks dumb, but the deco is great. Echoing what another poster said: it looks like how Primal would be upgraded if he actually got the Matrix.

    I think I'm in the minoirty when I say that deco looks better than the original and would rather have that

    The Prima is a special edition one. This looks more like the retail version.

    So what we're saying is....that we can have Primal wield a staff with the severed heads of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Rodimus and Soundwave.

    Ok, a bit disappointed that small primal is the same but it’s alright. What are the primemasters included?

    Not to sound like a douche but repaint is repainting an existing figure. Repaints are actually quite rare since a lot of transformer’s colours are in the plastic. Examples of repaints include the masterpiece tape birds. Redeco’s are changing the plastic and paint.

    Ebay:
    Amalgamus Prime, Nexus Prime, Prima and the 4th one.

    4th one has no name.
    Last 3 anyway. That 4th one is an enigma.
    Yes, that is precisely what is being said.

    You aren’t man, I have always disliked Optimal Optimus’s colors, and I think this looks amazing.
    In the official images they are listed, from left to right.

    Eh people tend to use the two interchangeably. Regardless my point still stands, primal has been redecoed as primal before this figure

    I'm even surprised how much someone is selling the preorders on ebay. I won't say how much though.

    Yes I agree. I still think people should remember the difference. Sometimes this fandom gets confused by things that have answers. Like if 3p are Ko’s or when they say repaint with a new head when it’s just retool.

    So does this mean I have no chance of getting a Bugly Pretender shell? That's what I was really wanting from the POTP line. :(

    Gives me high hope maybe the exclusive I'm looking for may be cheaper than the preorder.

    Really? That’s what you were looking for? I was hoping for dinoking.

    True enough, it always bugs the hell out of me when people call a retool with a new head a simple repaint so I completely understand where you’re coming from
