the Ford GT figure is very well done and will work extremely well for Hot

longer cape and other changes. Preorder now at $59.99

has posted the first wave of pictures from this years San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) Convention. Lots of exciting stuff!!!
20th Anniversary DVD Edition Optimus Prime
Is this version of Optimus Prime going to be all-plastic instead of die-cast and plastic? If the figure is plastic, it's sure to be cheaper than it was before. The good news is the figure won't be as fragile. The bad news is you'll have to spend a lot of money to get the original die-cast version.

UPDATE: Tony Bacala
is also reporting that 20th Anniversary DVD Prime is all plastic. You can view their report here
