Well the torso looks nice...but why is the gold on the rest of it the same as the regular retail release? Way to go halfway and then stop dead in your tracks, Hasbro. :lol:

If only they had stuck red on its tummy. Then I may have been sold. [-(

Either the photography is weird or the gold chrome looks way too green. I guess I'm glad I got the regular version.

It's more or less the lighting of the environment it's in.

PLEASE tell me that this is going to be a retail item and not a convention exclusive.

It's retail... but we just don't know where it will be retail in, other than Asia.

Do we even know if it'll be even released in Canada? I remember Optimus Prime and Omega Supreme being spotted in Canadian retail, but very rarely, if I remember correctly. :???:

Hasbro still can't get Grimlock's colors to look like he does in game :( His abdomen is RED! I need to get the Takara version and be done with it.

And how much extra are they going to charge for these minor and questionable changes?

Charge an additional SDCC Bruticus, and you should be all set. I could go for that actually, if only I was in Canada.

"Come buy Platinum Series, only in Canada/Asia. Only in Canada/Asia have they got the Platinum Series" :DANCE:

I'm just glad the version of Bruticus he comes with is the same as the SDCC version (which I already have), otherwise I'd have to buy this set. I vowed I would own every deco of that set, and so far I do. I didn't want to have to snag a Grimlock I wouldn't use just to get one more Bruticus (I'm getting Takara's Grimlock of course).

I suspect we may see TrU carrying these just as we did the GDO figures, but I could be wrong.

Oh man, I'm excited for this :lol: I've skipped on all other versions of these molds so that I can get this set (besides Ruination)

I live in Canada too, so this one will probably turn up at retail. So far I've seen a ton of Platinum Edition Optimus, and Magnus toys. I'm guessing that the ones over $100 aren't gonna show up though e.g. Omega and Predaking. So far I'm loving the Platinum Edition line :x I hope Hasbro makes more

You forgot Australia :P

So far all have shown up here. UM seems to have sold well only because he was 50% off during recent midyear sales.

Omega hasn't been released and both OP and UM are shelfwarmers.
