Hells, is that a new Sam's Club Battle Damaged Optimus Prime or is it the same Sam's Club Battle Damaged Optimus Prime from the earlier Sam's Club 3-pack?

I dunno whats sadder. Bidding on repaints, or paying too much for shipping from China, in packaging claiming to be C-10 grade when it will arrive in F+ condition.

Repaints that barely differ from the original toys I have. I like it better than animated at least.

I actually like the iced windows. There's really no point to a figure having transparent windows when all you see in there is robot parts. It hurts more than it helps.

Bumblebee looks like the one that is a must get because of the accurate helmet being yellow on this one instead of the aweful stealth BB one.

I'm getting Premiums BB, Megs, and I can't decide on Prime. Is the sword and new head really worth it? Is his new head really more movie accurate than the first release?

Hey, they finally got Barricade's fender decals right. Took Hasbro long enough to fix that. Although that would look even cooler with a LED light bar conversion (makes note to start collecting parts now).

Nobody noticed this Premium Blackout is different from the one pictured earlier? That one was more or less the same as the Japanese exclusive "4500X" edition with the tan legs and arms. This one is black again, like the original Voyager.

I know I'd like to get the Premium Leader Prime, Leader Megatron, Ironhide and Blackout. Can't wait till these hit the shelves. How much more expensive are Premiums compaired with the originals?

I noticed that too. It looks like the Lawson's exclusive.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but when/where the hell was this voyager prime in this packaging suppost to be released? I know there was the 3-pack and robo-vision, but this is sadly the only one what I would want (sadly) just for the packaging to go with the Best Buy figs.
