Yeah when the time comes I’m gonna try showz.
Oooh! You know what would be cool?
A trailer in the same color as those weapons cases that allows them to snap in, and attach to the truck mode of the figure. The trailer would be like a frame, that could become a weapons rack and fold up in the middle like a pyramid.
I'm speaking of a flatbed trailer, not a full box. Easy to produce, just has tires like the main truck, and a fold up mechanism for weapons rack Altmode,
Naa naa, the trailer must be as the classic one, the boxes can go just inside it.
Honestly battle trailer sounds way cooler
TFsource is also a global distributor of transformers for other stores.
Is there a difference in paint and detail between the standard version and the deluxe version or is just the deluxe version has a base?
just the extra base and some weapons firing effects. paint and details are the same.
Any trailer that's not just another exact copy of G1 OP's trailer gets points in my book. My Earthrise Prime's trailer is still in the box.
From an old video. Lighting does play tricks on the eyes. This one doesn't seem to have any weathering done but looks pretty good to me.
Okay so what would be the best website to purchase this guy from? I heard TFsource was not that great and I cant seem to find him on bigbadtoystore. Any suggestions?
If it needs to be a US retailer, the best choice I could find it available for pre-order:
i haven't used it yet myself but a lot of people recommend showz for 3rd party figures
If you don’t mind longer shipping times, you can save money by ordering from Showzstore who has it for $170-185. Reliable store with good customer service.
[Pre-Order] [Deluxe Ver.] ToyWorld TW-F09 Freedom Leader Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime
[Pre-Order] [Standard Ver.] ToyWorld TW-F09 Freedom Leader Prime
So, it’s just a deposit (not full cost at once) and then how much is shipping?
You pay the deposit and then when it’s released you have 2 weeks to pay off the full amount. Shipping is free as it’s part of the cost. (At least state wise)
Mine is payed in full via ShowZ. Which I like as most websites won't charge until product comes out, ShowZ took money upfront.
I prefer this as stuff can change between preorder to release. At least now, my only concern is when it ships.
Can't wait to see what a trailer looks like on this guy, maybe it's hide the feet better and that's the thought process. I wonder if there is any current trailer that'll work for him.
MP-10 trailer maybe, but might be too small as this figure is a big dude. MPP10 trailer might work. It looks like it has MP-10 style ports.
Regarding the movie character this figure is based on, now that the decade-long Bayverse era has come and finally gone, it's refreshing to see a live action movie version of Prime that actually looks like Prime.
But fit !
This figure looks great but I'm glad I didn't order it especially how the US economy is and I have a mortgage to pay. I also have feeling other 3rd parties or even HasTak will look at it and improve on their future versions.
I wouldn't worry about this breaking the bank. You can still get it man. Now Takara's MP-44 is another story.
