I just checked and I got my notice as well. I can't wait to get this and combine it with Henkei Prime :D!!!

I only have a Classics Prime to fill his chest. A second Henkei was too expensive.

I watched both review videos posted in this tread, and I am glad to hear that it's a solid figure. I really appreciate Encline's description of the overly tight ratcheting and his quick fix. Was really cool to see Ben's use of Henkei, G1, and original PM Prime, as well as the "stand-alone" version. There's simply an option for everyone, which in itself is quite a task.

So, I'm looking forward to picking this up at some point. Have the recent reviews changed anyone's mind on these? Think any Stateside retailer will pick up on this, or are they still burned by the Grand Patriot release?

I have 3 of them and no Classics Prime. Long ago ToyArena had Henkei Prime instock (even before the reissue) for the longest time and for a very reasonable price (close to the original price) so I ordered several. One for DIA Commander, one for a KO DIA Commander that I modded to be a Powermaster Prime (which I'm going to now use for this), and one to stand alone in bot mode next to United Megatron. He's by far my favorite figure/mold from the CHUG (or whatever the hell you call it) line to date.

I have to applicable Primes. A Classics Prime I got off ebay when he was cheap and a Henkei Prime that was from when they reissued him, but later on when he was more expencive than he first was.

However, there's KOs you can buy. There's a second run that looks better than the first set. Or you could just get a cheapo KO Prime for $12. It's just going to sit in place, so it doesn't really need to be perfect.

Very true, a KO Henkei Prime (as long as the chrome on the grill is decent) would be perfect for a set like this.

Mine arrived today. I haven't had much chance to play with the set yet, but I have him combined with Henkei Prime and he looks awesome :D!

I also figured out a way to somewhat hide the leg kibble (the wheels etc.) on the outside of the legs to improve the look.

He feels quite solid and looks amazing.

I assume it can, but I've not yet tried. It's quite adjustable given how the mechanism for holding the cabs in place in bot mode works. The instructions only show combining with Henkei/Classics Prime, but I've seen pics and video of G1 and Ginrai/Powermaster Prime's cab used with this set as well.

I cracked and oredered one after watching the video review. I love me some Powermaster Prime; I hope that version of Classics Prime with the Powermaster in the grill region is forthcoming.

This just arrived at my house the other day. All in all I like it. Using the Headmaster and Targetmaster yield ridiculous results, as expected.

It's a shame about the parts forming. There had to have been some way to incorporate that large pieces of plastic that hide the trailer into robot mode. Even if it was to fold up into a kind of shield or something. And it doesn't attach too well to Classics Prime in Trailer mode. At least not for me. The hitch int he back just fits too snugly and the way it's made prevents Classics Prime from really turning in tat mode, at leat with Prime's knee flaps int he proper configuration. So there's a few flaws.

All in all, I think I paid a bit too much for it at the regular retail price. But only a little bit; it gets a lot more right than it does wrong.

Mine arrived today. :)

I love to tweak every figure I own -- either through customization, or through non-destructive modification to make them look like their 1980's counterparts a bit more.

Check out these changes to Trailerforce:

I ordered mine yesterday. When should I expect it?

And, if there will be no MP Powermaster Prime, is this good enough to be considered one? Even with the plastic Prime component?

Anyone know if there has been talk of recolors of this one (like a slightly remolded and recolored version for Magnus?)?

energon rodimus is too small for it, isn't he? otherwise that'd be the repaint/remold I'd want.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I received mine, surprisingly fast. I had a Powermaster Prime waiting for him, but it didn't really appeal to me after combining them. So i tried out my G1 Optimus. I like the look much better. I don't have a Classics Prime because I think it looks hideous in both modes, but the G1 Prime looks pretty good with this 3rd party piece. I don't think it was worth $180 (shipping included), as it's flimsier than I thought it would be and not as heavy. But overall I don't regret it. I never really liked the original Powermaster Prime because it wasn't posable at all. This one is looks much better. My only 2 minor complaints with the figure itself in robot mode are that the wrists are a bit too loose and don't hold up his 2 big guns well, and the shoulder joint sticks out too far and looks too skinny. it there way a way to collapse the arm into the shoulder a little, it would look more sturdy. Bottom line, I'm not ecstatic, but I'm satisfied.
