I already have this mold with another on the way...I wish they'd just sell the add-on kit. I'd definitely go for that.

You just HAD to show the high quality images, didn't you?
I wanted him, but was conflicted about the price.
Now I HAVE to get him!

I liked the darker blue and grey on the original mold

I refuse to shell out for another version of the movie Op, but I'd love this as a kit.

Okay... Granted, I got that piece on sale. But even then... It is the same price as the set originally cost! I mean... I guess I'll look for another piece to add to my collection.

Expensive, superior exclusives! But still... Stuff like this makes me wish that Hasbro would step up their game. If not, then I need to make one of those commercials showing poor collectors who get stuck with what Walmart (who had a nice, basic exclusive of this version of Optimus Prime) and Target give us!
Besides, I am hoping that if Takara Tomy reissues this into the Japanese market, that they use the same gold detailing used on the Walmart exclusive variant of him. I mean...

First off, it's only a $40 difference and this is an asian market exclusive which doesn't include Japan. Robotkingdom is based in Hong Kong and yes they do ship to the U.S. which will run about $26 and some change.
BBTS and TFSource are both U.S. based so it goes without saying they ship to the U.S. They also have higher importing costs as well as your usual mark up for profit which accounts for the difference in price. There may or may not be other factors that I am not considering but those are the main ones.
The U.S. also doesn't have any customs or import tax so that question is no.

U.F.O. Unknown Factory Originals - War Axe For DOTM Leader Class Optimus Prime.
Can you remove some of the grey paint around the edges to make it appear to be glowing? If so, is there a "right" way, or just paint remover and patience?
