    I really like the look of this and want it. But I can't afford it now.

    What are the chances of this being available, say, early next year?

    Previous one is still available new on eBay so fairly high I'd say.

    I'd have to get mine back to truck to try it out, but I can say sometimes you might just choose to cheese a shot if the look is good enough.

    Yeah, there's no way to get that sliding piece in that position short of completely cutting off the peg from it. And the missiles themselves come off too heavy to stay angled up like they are. And while it still won't peg in, it can at least rest a bit decently further back down on his shins.

    Those earlier shots gave me omega supreme vibes. Like if they had a trailer and a small tank... legit.

    Go for it! It's in the top three best 3rd party releases this year so far, in my opinion

    Mine should be here Friday. Coworker was on vacation and I had to pick up a ton of slack. Looking forward to my 3 bots on Friday.

    I have to admit, Kim Jong Prime does look great.

    Whether you get the this release, the original red and blue or the original green, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FIGURE.

    I bought the red and blue when it was first released out of boredom and was blown away by the heft and quality of this bad bad. Solid as a rock, great transformation, tonnes of accessories and cool stuff with 2 bot modes, base bodes, just a fantastic figure.

    Told myself I wouldn't buy the green one but then suckered myself into it and was super happy with it as well.

    Haven't come across anybody who regretted buying this mold..

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Best TFC mould, hands down. It's almost as if it's TFC in name only. I wish all of their moulds were this solid.

    Does anyone know if the upgrade missiles for the earlier released NB camo version can attach to the NC or if you need some additional parts?

    They attach, I have those same missiles for my v1 and tried them out on the NB version to see how it looks.
