    A future jetwing repaint would explain what those unused square pegs under his feet are for...

    Or they're saving it for a Toxitron repaint. Or some variant on Prime. Who knows.

    Both probably.

    Probably, it will be Walmart capsule exclusive in the next year (Elite Guard theme).

    I’m betting on a Leader class release with his full trailer that converts into Jetwing Optimus.

    And it’ll be a Buzzworthy Target exclusive.

    Only available in China.

    On leap years.

    During a blue moon.

    During the month of Smarch.

    I would be more than happy to double dip for a Wingblade version.

    Wingblade would be what gets me to get this mold at all (I know I said that in a previous thread but my stance hasn't changed since then)

    In general, I think it's a good mold, but it was rushed. The QC is pretty awful- I had to sand down the waist peg just so the torso wouldn't pop off when trying to turn him, and I am far from alone on that issue. Hope they fix that for any future release.

    This is huge. I’d definitely buy another Animated Prime with a masked head and wingblade armor, especially if that would fill out the back of the truck.

    Hopefully a bigger budget would also allow for more yellow paint apps.

    Everybody talking about Wingblade Prime but I just want a new Elite Guard Prime that\'s not stupidly expensive.

    I want both because black and red together? Beautiful I'm in.

    With them having Prowl and Bee also we could get the whole set.

    It's pretty much impossible without fully breaking the glue bonds holding the head together. No screw or anything, and it's a pretty tight joint so I don't doubt that ripping the head off might just sheer the neck peg into oblivion.
