    I was literally about to order earlier today it when the price went up to $136. I'm debating whether to still get for that price or not.

    Thanks! I hope it comes both heads. The reason I couldn't buy that other one immediately was because I was in a weird money situation and did'nt know exactly if would be able to buy it or not until yesterday. But now I know that I can buy it.

    Been thinking of adding stickers to the chest windows. Anyone know where I can find them?

    Not a big fan of the colors, and that's not a bad thing since I've always been waiting for MS to do him because I'm not buying the same mold twice, so I hope they're doing the crotch details greener, the gray lighter, the windshields more yellow and the blue bluer

    Also I'm finally getting my replacement head for the regular one, it should be there when I come back home on sunday :bowdown:

    I think MS has already shown its SG Prime. I swear I saw pics of that and a number of other repaints (including a dying grey Movie Prime) in another thread.

    Sort of- since they have both a legends and MS scale Optimus, it can get a little confusing.

    For their legends scale, they showed a golden lagoon, shattered glass and ultra magnus version:

    And for their MP scale, they showed a black deco with a golden grill and smokestacks, and a dead version from the 86 movie:

    I kinda wish MS did the shattered glass version in MP scale. Anyways, SG TE-01 looks pretty sweet. I might pick him up so I'll have an equal number of MS-01s and TE-01s (as I have both Nemesis Versions and Ultra Magnus MS-01)

    The SG version looks nice indeed. I hope they will eventually release a version of the G1 coloured version with more paint apps specifically for the alt mode.

    And ten wheels, but then it would have to be a complete new bot :D

    Will it still have incredibly poor ratchet spaces ?

    The ratchets on the newer the v2 and Nemesis versions are well spaced to be honest. Granted the v1 wasn't as good (and that's the one I have). My Nemesis is definitely more poseable.

    question

    What is everyone doing for trailers for these?
    - I have my MP-10 trailer I can use, but it would be nice to scoop another for the cheap and then just sell the MP-10 all together.

    Even a black trailer option would be nice
