    Eh kinda looks boring in regular Prime colors, a bit standard straight forward nothing special. As for hero prime, yeah I\'m down for that especially if it\'s a totally new figure.

    Armada Prime lite is an interesting guess, I'd love for them pull a new Prime mold that noone saw coming, but I'm not sure which Primes outside of Beast Hunters would work as leader, since most of the remaining Primes I think are either voyagers or commander

    Maybe S1-2 Prime Optimus? But that depends on engineering and what it would come with I guess.

    The only things that stopped me from buying it were the solid white Combat Deck and the fragile green plastic hinge on his chest panel in robot mode.

    Okay, if you give prime a matrix, give him opening hands, but other than that it\'s good.

    I wouldn't say that. The red on the legs and black torso do a lot to distinguish it.

    I’m so glad I got Holiday Optimus. This is a great mold but these are just boring standard Optimus colors, something I already have way too much of. Holiday Prime was a unique novelty.

    I had a feeling I should have waited on getting Christmas Prime. FOMO won. Damn.

    I am so very happy with my decision to get the holiday prime. Looks way better than this imo.

    Dang. I can usually give or take an Optimus figure, but this deco looks very nice. No, I don't need this. No, I don't need this. No, I don't need this. No, I don't need this....

    So, we've got this Volvo Prime's tractor, we've got Laser Prime's tanker trailer... hey Hasbro, why no Hess truck Prime?

    Heck, you could even do a Hess truck deco on the upcoming SS86 car carrier Magnus:

    Edit:
    I'd definitely be up for a new Toyota FJ Cruiser mold in Legacy Uni/beyond.

    HasbroToyShop has Holiday Prime on sale for $39.19 with free standard shipping.
