    Final product suppose to have metallic paint. The paint imperfection is really due to a rush sample. The test figure skipped the bake process which suppose to solidified the paint on to the plastic. They skipped it to save time so it can rush to C2E2, and start the video review to give every one an update. So I would safely assume that the final product is going to be better than test product.

    I don't even care what this thing is supposed to scale with. He looks badass and he's an extremely welcome figure to my shelves. Now, release the damn thing!

    That is definitely a better comparison than the prototype. Will look even better compared with the Takara version, undoubtedly. I'd probably still prefer it to have been upsized a bit for the head to be closer in size, but I'll probably not be cancelling my preorder.

    Sometimes being wrong is a good thing.

    This figure is impressive. I'm floored by the undercarriage in alt mode not resembling a bot whatsoever. The alt mode all around is spectacular.

    Not bad at all, Spark Toys.

    They sold out on preorders on BBTS. Other sites still have him, but I dunno, I'm not sure I want him now.

    I'm still happy with his Voyager sized Titanium mold. Once we start upsizing every old Prime the displays are gonna get out of hand. My oversized Wei-Jiang Primes are already bound to be a permanent desk fixture as they don't FIT anywhere :)

    There's a huge difference between this and the titanium version. It's like a masterpiece version of the character in the comic, not an upscaled version of the titanium mold. The titanium figures never looked good to me, but this definitely looks amazing and display worthy.

    can't lie, kinda depressed there's no diecast going on here. would have been perfect for this guy. the no diecast thing kinda makes me wonder what the asking price is for when he is a touch smaller than MP10.

    looks great, just not a top priority without dat heft.

    At $100, I'd have said yes, but $130 is a hard pill to swallow, especially since I've started to curb my 3P spending habits. The more and more I think about it, I really don't NEED him, and it is yet another Prime -- a character I love, but I'm sure all of us have too damn many Primes as it is.

    I believe you meant to say deluxe sized Titanium mold.
