    Am I the only one that doesn’t see Batman in that bot mode? As a Batman fan I’ll buy anything TF Batman related, but this is a rather meh reference.

    My assumption would be 10 AM Eastern on the 24th just like the other exclusives.

    Still stinging from not getting the Ratbat version, and Batman is my favourite classic hero, so I'm definitely getting this.

    I like it. But I don't know that it's worth spending $100 on. How many times have they recycled this mold now?

    It's an homage to an obscure little character called Batman

    That's Batman?

    I thought it was an unpainted prototype for Vector Prime...

    Tempting, I never did grab a version of their Wing mold.  Came close on Ratbat a few times, but couldn\'t get motivated enough.

    MMC Wing mold, in black, homaging Beast Wars? Yeah I’m in. Unless they reveal another spooky Arcee, as I can only get one this year.

    Onyx Prime was one of the 13 Primes. Onyx Primal was a beast Wars character. Different guys.

    If MMC gives him the batman cape, maybe it's easier for you to recognize. For me, I do see the Batman face in the head sculpt, especially the mouth line.

    I have the Ultio/Ratbat version of the mould and it's imo the best version of the mould.

    I think I would've been far more interested in the Bat Optimus Primal deco. But then, I would've been very annoyed that I had bought Ultio. This Onyx Primal version has me definitely interested, but not sure the interest is enough to warrant a purchase. Especially since as a European I don't want to buy from A3 and Toy Dojo due to high shipping costs and import taxes. If PSX gets it as well, then the temptation will be real.

    So this is kind of a roundabout dual homage. Specifically, it is supposed to double as Batman and Onyx Primal, a BotCon exclusive repaint of the basic Bat Optimus Primal toy. Said original Optimus Primal toy was an homage to Batman, which was another toyline that Kenner was also making at the same time as Beast Wars. The BotCon exclusive Onyx Primal was also an homage to Batman. Going for the modern black colour scheme Batman had at the time, versus the classic blue that the original Primal toy was.

    So basically it's a double homage to both the homage that was already homaging to same thing that it's also homaging again now with this homage.

    In fact, if this sells like crazy, and if there's another TFcon Online in the following Spring, I wouldn't be surprised if they do a blue repaint of this. Then it would be a TRIPLE homage! Because not only would it homage both the blue Batman suit, and the original bat Primal toy, but it could also double as SG Ratbat, especially if they threw in the Ratbat head, as he was also based on Batman!

    Since the price will most likely be the same on both sites, which site will probably have cheaper shipping rates?  I know I\'ve ordered from A3U but I can\'t recall ordering from Toy Dojo???

    Wait, so was there a previous version of this figure released in the past?
    Sorry, I dont know anything about the "reformatted" line. I was just wondering if there was more info/pics about the size and look of the full body of the previous version out there on the web.
