Gotta disagree with you there "champ" :D.There's Voyager Megatron and Shockwave,Leader Sentinel and HA Roadbuster xP.But oh well that's just my opinion ^^.

On topic...But damn for 50 dollars even I want it ! Though...Imma just focus on DOTM >.<..

Is the Matrix that Hotrod is holding the same size as the Takara? It looks to be the same size as the one that comes with Optimus. The box states that the Matrix fits inside, so if it is indeed the larger one, did Hasbro modify the chamber inside?

Or maybe I'm just not seeing it right?

I could swear that Matrix looks bigger, and it also fits in Hotrod's hands!

You're seeing it right. That means they had to have modified the chest cavity.

Hot Rod - cool, I'm buying two at that price.

Now just get those useless asses at Hasbro UK to sling it in a TRU near me and I'll be happy - for at least 14 minutes.

You're seeing it right. That means they had to have modified the chest cavity.

Or this new and bigger matrix will not fit into the chest cavity. I just took a glance at my Takara version and they would have needed to do a massive redesign of the chest in order to make room for this bigger matrix. I am not sure it is possible to fit it into the chest even with a redesign. We will see, but I recommend not getting your hopes up.

That Optimus does look kind of cool. I won't be getting it because it's out of scale with mainline figures, but at least it would be great for displaying it fighting Voyager Blackout, Voyager DOTM Megatron, Voyager The Fallen, or Deluxe Bonecrusher. He'd also probably look good with Supreme Devastator.

Wow! For all the stuff that Hasbro put out for this movie the only thing remotely fascinating was a thrice re-painted 4 year old figure. That's just sad. :-(

A lot of the Cyberverse repaints look lovely. Any word on which stores got which? Particularly the green Powerglide and Eradicon-esque Crowbar.

This made me think of the Mach Five, even though it doesn't resemble it that much.
