    Holy crap, I think this is the first time I've seen the Beelzeboss one's robot mode! That looks dang good! For Nova Prime, that one might end up being the one for me!

    I'd definitely be interested in a couple more sets of those ratchets for the Vitalis and Praefectus kits I bought already, and an additional set for my Motormaster too while we're at it.

    I'm so psyched to finally be getting this guy to add to my collection!

    NOW...IF WE COULD JUST GET THAT THUNDERCLASH KIT, SND!! Just saying...

    Out of everything shown at TFCon, this is the only one I will buy for certain.

    Guess who forgot TFCon started today. :lol 

    Ooooh, it's nice seeing him out in the wild! And I can't deny... I'm amused that his wings take up an entire display case on their own. :p

    Well... seeing as this figure's weapons can form one long-ass katana... They should display the Black version (if they ever make one) with a single wing... Get all Sephiroth-y up in here.

    Might I humbly suggest that people have a look in the Third Party slides from TFCon, so I can stop biting my tongue, please? Only I've nearly gnawed it off... :p 

    Ha, that's a good idea! :D 

    Awww, thanks very much, friendo! :D 

    Official photos a few pages back, or on my Facebook page (link in my sig). :D

    Went to go look through and saw the goods (Nova) and then saw the Fort Max weapons, and then saw the Cog! Quite the lead up.

    The Fort Max stuff looks fantastic, John. I'm looking forward to getting that Cog some day.

    I need a Nova Prime, and I think this is the best looking one out there, and it's priced decently.

    There were some good reveals today, but nothing struck me as a "must get".

    Unlike 3 to 4 years ago, nowadays I'm more careful of my purchases, especially for 3rd party figures. I've been burned too many times by bad QC and bad resale values that I have to be really picky about what I buy.

    Jon, the Optimus kits were great - I was all in on your Nova Prime kit from the start.

    But the other stuff you've been designing and keeping mum on for SND? Holy hell man.

    You just keep on with the upgrade kits and add-on figures like Cog and Grommet - if you're the designer, there's little doubt I put my faith in you and SND to get it looking great.

    I love the way this looks, and have even see trucks that look kinda like this in alt mode, AND like the combiner mode battle skirt, I would greatly like it, but how are these? I haven't really heard much beyond "i need to get one of those to make my CW optimus better."
    with regards to these, so how likely is it to be good?

    also, where is the best place to get one? I tend to get bbts, but i'm ok with chosen prime if It's worth the savings.

    I have the first 3 kits that S.N.D. put out, and they are very well made. Plastic feels good and not brittle. Have been some reports of paint flaking on the red kit, but no issues with mine. It's pretty straight foward to install as well. Take out some screws, replace the screws. Only thing that can be daunting for some is the two pins that need to be removed to add the kit. There are some great videos on line that show the installation of the red kit. They will give you a feel of what you are in for with this kit. This should be similar, but just with more parts.
    As for where to get it, whomever has the best price is the best place and if you trust them or not. Got my kits from bbts and this one on preorder there as well.

    I am not sure where the best price is for this kit though! :oops: 

    It is fairly priced at bbts, but there are just so many sites that sell this stuff now I don't know where it could be better (including shipping)

    I think all the regular places: BBTS, TFSource, Chosen Prime (my preference), etc. will likely be the same price. I think you’re stuck with paying $70 for it.

    Show z has it for about $10 less, shipped, that's who I'm going through this round.

    The only drawback is shipping times can be longer than your 3-5 standard from the bigger e-tailers, but I've done multiple purchases with them and they've always come through.
