    I guess I hit the acceptance phase.
    Mainframe: full MCU Vision treatment, love it.
    Optimus: following the current trend old yellowing ER toy is when he's initally depressed he got them stuck on Earth. The new one will be when he gets his groove back and heroes up.
    Jazz: Heck I don't know. Spiderman pointing meme.

    id be happy to split the set with you, I really only want Mainframe ! Standard price for his size class (for the people who have difficulty with reading comprehension I am offering to sell my Optimus Prime from the sets I am buying ) and of course standard shipping. Need to bring it with me from Japan so i could ship it out to you late dec ( IF YOUR IN THE USA ) would like TWO MAINFRAMES so I will be most likely ordering at least two sets, so this is open to others as well.

    THE OPTIMUS and the Jazz are up for sale not the Mainframe. I am keeping that guy on both sets

    Decepticon Command Set is incoming. Autobot set is pre-ordered. I don't AT ALL need a third nearly-identical Jazz but that Optimus is BEAUTIFUL and an actual Mainframe deco is too good to pass up.

    Hot Rod, Kup, and Blurr. Bonus points if they remold Kup and Blurr's faces to not suck.

    Springer and Wreck-Gar should come in a vs. pack, but honestly both of those are kind of perfect already (obviously I'm talking about the forthcoming Leader class Springer... if they choose to do a show-accurate deco of the voyager though, that might be an interesting low-cost alternative)

    Honestly my favorite part about these sets is the price. They're basically US retail, plus an extra $3 per figure for nicer paint. I'm 100% okay with that.

    Hasbro needs to stop sleeping on how important it is for G1 Optimus' ENTIRE ARM to be red. Not just the shoulder and forearm, the bicep too! And while you're at it, the entire lower leg is blue. The inside and back too. They made a bunch of shit grey for no good reason. (I know, molds... but Optimus doesn't have any grey parts, he's red white and blue, so why all the grey at all? If the other parts were white they'd be easy to paint)

    Seeing Prime in those colors, even if it is Earth Rise, make's it appealing to me.

    Milking the mold. Sadly, it's gonna happen more often moving forward.

    Yup. The price of mold tooling means they need at bare minimum 1 reuse to keep profits where they want it. This used to mean "powered up modes" and new characters (either straight repaints, new head repaints, or some retooling) but now it's a lot easier to just release it as the same character, but with more desirable deco.

    OK Takaratomy I'll bite. I already have the Netflix Prime repaint of that ER Prime mold but in G1 toon colors this is too good to pass up. Plus I didn't get the Autobot Titan Ark set so no Teletran 1 aka Mainframe yet in my collection. Well played.

    Well, it would've made chunks of the trailer red, for one.

    Every now and then I still consider picking this up. Then I remember we're getting a SS86 Megatron next year.

    I would not consider mainframe a deluxe, dude is the same size as prime

    If anything, its 2 voyager and a deluxe

    Size class /= height. Honestly at this point, size class /= size.

    You're hilarious. Anyone who sells you just Mainframe for any less that the full price of the set is too generous.

    Would you like me to sell you just the Buzzsaw from the Soundwave set too?

    Or maybe you'd like just the Hound from the Buzzworthy 5-pack?

    I am fully aware of this

    If we then are going to use the modern system, he would then be a leader class, due to the acsessorys and parts count

    Fixes like 99% of my issues with the mold, the only things that still bug me are the butt flap and the gas tanks embedded in the shins.

    I would do it, were I wanting to sell, even though I'm well aware based on his post history that the favor would not be returned. I hate scalpers with a passion, and always sell current product at the price I got it for (or less), irrespective of the current perceived "value". To that end, There are more "too generous" people here- just over the past two months, I was sold Ransack, ER Skywarp/Thundercracker, and Netflix 'bee at retail prices or less. Not everyone is out to make pennies off of a fellow collector.

    So? If one thing has to be sacrificed for the sake of the other, what do you think we is fans would prefer, a correctly colored Optimus, or a correctly color trailer?
