So do I buy Encore Devastator with my extra TF money and hope Hasbro & Maketoys do RID Scourge, or buy this?

Tough decision. At least I have 2010 Primus covered.

I dunno.. not sure if I'm sold or not. I wonder how this will stack up with City commander since it's damn near the same concept. Like someone said, I like the set but the figure not so much..The 3 that I bought seem to be very floppy making some of these dynamic poses sort of impossible..grrrrrrrr Why does all of this 3rd party stuff have to be so irresistable :BANG_HEAD:

This is my own little Christmas present to me. It would be nice to get it before Christmas, but I'll bet it won't make it in time.....

Don't see how it looks like Ed 209, haha. But definitely a sick set. You just know he'll look amazing posed mid-flight with the armour suit on.

Did they fix the gigantic hands? Is the sword still wired? Haven't been properly following up on this set.

NO,Thanks,This thing doesn't grow that much in height. Their is a comparision pic of this thing in full robot trailer armor next to generations deluxe size Drift. this battle tanker next to deluxe drift is only a 1/4 of a inch taller from toe to head.

Personally such a waste,in combined trailer armor robot mode it's still deluxe size. they had all the battle tanker parts to use. they could have had the trailer parts form a lower leg/shin. instead of just a raised foot.

IMHO,Paying $100 for this to get a STILL DELUXE COMBINED TOY makes ZERO sense.

At the very least the PROTECTOR armor did actually make the classics rodimus toy add about 1 & 1/2 inches in height. the protector armor did make the toy grow from deluxe to voyager size.

The city commander armor made classics ultra magnus go from a voyager sized toy to a ultra sized 8+inch sized robot mode.

Don't care about the tanker, at least not for $100.

However, I'll be getting the Powerglide set.

Height does not a voyager toy make, but sheer mass instead. If you're looking for height, then this isn't for you. Wait for that Powermaster Prime upgrade that someone is making.

if you want to take a figure which was not the best in its line, give it a trailer THAT TURNS INTO AN EXOSUIT, and give him the ability to light up a MASSIVE sword, then this is for you.

I think it's overpriced, but I want it. This set inspires me to take pics of badass action scenes. Really looking forward to it. 8)

This isn't a EXO-SUIT. A exo-suit is something a figure slips inside of.

This battle tanker is more defined as a parts-former or Trailer armor that splits up in armor pieces for the robot mode to wear.

A exo-suit in toy terms is defined as such: something more similar to the DOTM Ultimate optimus prime toy. Something similar to the Takara Brave 1990 King Exkaiser,the MP King Exkaiser. those Avatator exo-suits. all these things have robots that slip inside a exo-suit.

I read a thread last week. that only the japanese limited edition version comes with the light up sword. I could be wrong on this but I could have sworn I read the mass released 2nnd shipment & so forth won't include the light up sword.

The Drift sword is the limited edition one, and it comes with the current pre-order figs. I debatted and debatted with my-self and I think despite being exspensive, I'm gonna get this bad boy. My wife needs to get me something for X-mas still anyhow ;)

Upon further analysis, we're both right and wrong. THe parts add to the hands and feet, then he could slip into his trailer for extra firepower

My original point still stands though: this isn't a deluxe figure. This figure has more playability than FP Ultra Magnus with the multiple trailer modes. Well worth the money IMO (and only IMO of course)

I agree with ya man, this definitely looks way more fun than the FP ultra magnus/prime upgrade trailer/body armours. Those always seemed kinda clunky and boring to me... despite looking cool.
I wonder if laser rod prime's upgrade can stand in the mode in this pic, without the back support I see.

I don't have the United G2 Version... as of yet!

Does anyone have any photos of what this will look like with the RTS G2 version of Optimus Prime?

Which one does it look better with?

Should I get this now or wait for the inevitable Botcon edition repaint? I'd like to get two, one for my BC set and one to sell with my extra BC set (sorry, have to pay for the trip somehow). I just don't know.

HELP!!
