    you’re missing the point of this line. It’s capturing the show/film accuracy of the character as close as possible

    Optimus is looking good I guess but I added all those paint apps myself two years ago. They’re very late on this line.

    He's not missing the point, he's just saying that with all the releases of this mold, he'd rather get a clean looking Megatron.

    I had been happy with my customized Netflix Megatron, but I do really like the look of this one with that uniform metallic finish on all the grey parts. Not sure if I like it enough to pay the Takara markup for it, but who knows, maybe if it's unpopular enough I'll be able to get it for cheaper eventually.

    White stripes on Prime? That's LESS accurate. The movie truck was painted silver, like the G1 toy:

    My first thought when I looked at the photos was "did they do anything I didn't do?"

    Man, I really wish these premium finish Optimus and Megatrons had been the ER molds with nice, metallic paint decos.

    Here you go.

    PF WFC-01 Optimus Prime-09.jpg

    Just so it's 100% clear, that's a Photoshopped Nova Storm made to look desaturated because it's not actually available. As far as anybody knows it's not an upcoming, unique Seeker.

    Isn\'t this just the Netflix Megs paint all over again?
    Prime looks the same frankly.

    You... are aware this is Takara, right?

    Definitely will pick up the Prime if the price is right. I never had the chance to own the OG and with all the praise it gets, I'll dive right in. Probably will get Megatron too, I don't have a War for Cybertron trilogy one yet.

    Now I think I'm gonna wait a bit before I purchase Studio Series Blitzwing. If he gets a premium makeover as well, that will most likely be the one to go for.

    Tbh Siege Megatron is a blazing definition of mediocrity, you should get the cheapest option

    The mould for this Megatron is going to be putty soon.

    Clearly Hasbro found a small source of neutronium and decided to use it for that specific mold.
