Not too bad looking. If I had cash to spare or if a relative was looking for a gift idea, this could be one. I just need a proper repurposing destination for the Classics mold since I have the Henkei one.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Expect me in the States by August 17th ;)

I foolishly passed on the original " Classics" O.P. back in '06, so I really look forward to getting this. The coloring in robot mode is, IMO, nicer than the original.

Sigh, yellow eyes.

Still not liking the grey elbows. Wish they'd release this in the original Henkei colours.

And they ditched EMOP's face plate. But it' still lacking paint around the grill though.

Any chance there will be other variations of this set?

Like the deco on the regular EMOP much better than on this. The blue flames on the cab just seem wrong and weird.

Can't wait to get this, I don't have any voyager Classics Optimus. Much less a shiny one. I might still pick up Tommy Kennedy Optimus, but this'll be my main one.
Anyone think this release has to do with the recent Botcon use of the mold?

I don't see why it would, since the mold is still available for use by Hasbro, Fun Pub, or even Takara with their Cloud Optimus release.

Using a G1 mold for this set would clash with the other Evolution 2-Packs.

I can't tell if they really believed they were trying for something somewhat in the spirit of a vein similar to what in a way could be sorta kinda called close to resembling movie-accuracy with these... or if they simply wanted to do gunmetal Dinobots just because.
