    I usually do too. But there are some I buy that eventually, I get rid of just because it's novelty wore off on me. Which just makes me scrutinize my purchases more, but that's neither here nor there.

    Well one will be for sale eventually. So, can’t really say I adore him. But I think it’s an awesome enough piece.

    Wish I could buy the original MP10 already! But even finding a KO is complicated! You are lucky!

    Thanks for the heads up! I've been looking for one of these for awhile but prices on eBay were more than I was willing to pay. I just ordered the one from AE.

    Here's another from AE a lil higher then the other listing but still within reason...
    Transformers Masterpiece MP-711 - Cybertron Total Commander Convoy Seven Eleven Exclusive A20
    I've never had issues with AE's customer service and had a similar mail issue where it ended up going back to AE but I was able to contact them and they re shipped it back to me without any issues or extra charges. I guess each their own.
    Dang $302 usd cheaper then what I pre ordered it for :p  But I'm sure it was due to the currency exchange rate fluctuating, ah well at least I have it. Still haven't taken it out of the AE box fully though. I should do that tonight, have had it for almost 2 weeks now.

    They should have sent a poet...

    And someone with photography skills. Just a quick picture out of excitement. It took me three attempts to purchase on EBay. Two cancellations. The third I managed to be extremely lucky on and purchased during the 20% coupon. So in all I nabbed him for about $319 shipped.

    I am very happy with this very niche product.

    I should've jumped on that eBay 20% deal, $320 is much more doable, didn't even think about it when it occurred. so much regrats.
    I do have some gripes about this figure tho, which is making me hold off on it, especially at the price point...I feel they could've added more detailing/paint apps on the legs/lower portion. I also dislike the Autobot logo indentation on the trailer and how in photos they photo-shopped it out to make it look smooth. Lastly, at the price point they could've at least added little magnets or something instead of stickers to make the 7-11 or Autobot logos interchangeable.

    So I got some good news and decided I'd celebrate by buying this figure. Figured I'd be able to have a nice prime shelf between regular, yoth, shattered glass, black prime Eva prime and now this. Gonna have a real convoy of convoys!

    When this was announced, I figured this was a test for interest for a white prime (magnus) as mp 10 size. I have mp 02 and still love that damn thing with all my heart. Nothing like a white prime.

    I don\'t see the appeal of this one.. sure white prime and all... but 7-11? And whats up with that ugly blue face shield.

    To each their own I guess. Not for me.

    I worked for four years at a 7-11 and I love this mould. I fully admit this isn't for everyone. Very much a niche product catered to a very small but hungry group of people.

    The blue face mask is accurate to white Optimus Prime repaints like MP-2 Ultra Magnus, Classics Ultra Magnus (at least one version is - the Takara one, I believe), and Revoltech Ultra Magnus.

    The 7-Eleven deco is just optional fun (stickers and all). My father-in-law is a manager at a bento factory that makes food for 7-Eleven in Japan so that's mostly why this appeals to me (that and Japanese 7-Eleven food here is tasty).
