That's the Leader Grimlock I'm gonna go for, and the Leader Prime will be a nice bonus. Since it's a Platinum Series release, it's gonna be a mostly online deal for the US, right?

I thought that was for Canada? If not, I may have to keep an eye on the one near my future home.

Nope, Platinum Edition products are available at Toy-R-Us stores, in addition to some sites online. Thats how I got my Grimlock Evolution 2-pack.

More recent Platinum Edition releases are popping up in stores. Only YotS Optimus and Omega Supreme, and Predaking haven't gotten Toys "R" Us treatment (as far as I know).

To clarify, every Platinum Edition figure after the first three (Year of the Snake Prime, Year of the Snake Omega, and G1 Predaking) has come to U.S. TRU stores.

It is, at least as far as the color palette chosen. In several shots in the movie, it's obvious the Dinobots are NOT all gunmental gray, as you might first think. They have subtle hues on some parts of their models that evoke their respective toy colors, but not anywhere near the extent to which the toys "pop" with color. The exception is Grimlock, who in the movie has a bluish-green hue to some of his body, which this Platinum Edition version tries to capture. The other choice is the Takara "Dark Knight" leader version, but it's pretty uninteresting in terms of coloring (gray and black). Another nice perk to this Platinum Edition is the seeming lack of chrome parts that the mass release version boasts. It'll probably be a lot more durable if you transform your figures frequently.

Is this the OP that will be in the set? I can't tell if this Prime has the mouth plate but I'm sure the one that comes with this Grimlock does have it.

Unless I'm wrong on this? :-? :VEHI:

Derp. My bad. Are you sure about the Silver Knight Optimus Prime? I thought that was a Target exclusive.

There are several Silver Knight Optimus Prime repaints out there (Smash & Change, Titan, Deluxe), all of them Target exclusive. But the First Edition one is a Platinum Edition:





And probably an Amazon exclusive much like the parent mold.

Just checked Tf Wiki. It a Target Exclusive. The whole Silver Knight thing is. Im pretty sure its just part of the Thrilling Thirty line, not a Plat.

It says "Platinum Edition" smack-dab on the box.

A Silver Knight Optimus Prime, where the only actual silver is on the shield? As from Grimlock, well I still prefer the voyager.

Just checked TFWiki myself, and while it is under the Target exclusive banner, note the wiki has been known to be incorrect at times, While the assumption is easy to make, we still lack official confirmation (hence me saying "probably")

I like that, but it comes as a set right with Optimus also? If so I wont buy the set just to get one leader class and be stuck with one I dont want.
