So whats the verdict? Which evil Prime is superior?

The FE Prime mold is a really great achievement. I'd totally buy this clear version if I ever pick up the clear black microns.

I like the upper arms and the forearms better on the SDCC version, but I think overall I like the Tokyo Toy Show version, especially with the black legs, head, and red windows.

Black Prime is made up of broken hope and shattered dreams. :-(
Ah well, another figure to add to the list of ridiculously-expensive Japanese exclusives I want but will probably never own. >:oP

Damn these galleries! I'm sure Black Convoy looks great in hand... But there's just too much other stuff to buy and $100 is too much for something so close to the other. I wish Hasbro's had red windows or the Takara one Autobot symbols. Either would make this an easy enough pass. Instead it's gotta be a tough pass...

I agree with this 100%. United Black Convoy is an awesome figure. On mine at least, the joints are a lot tighter than on my SDCC Nemesis Prime.

I really wish I could have gotten in on the preorders for that FE Prime too.

You should just get one on eBay. They're fairly plentiful and at the same price as the pre-orders.

Hmm, I hadn't realized that. eBay it is! Thanks, Ryan.

It was creepy: I was clicking through the gallery for United Black Prime and my web browser crashed. A couple of seconds later the postman was knocking at my door with that very figure.

It's a beautiful version of a brilliant mold. I'm a little disappointed the grill isn't chromed as I thought it was in the early release photos, but at least it now matches the front skirt.

Interestingly mine has the exact same faint lines on the right side (if you're looking at his front) of the windshield as Seibertron's. Anyone else got it?

It seems to be a problem caused by the mold. Several other people have the same problem. Plus there is a small paint flaw on the forehead crest on the mold as well where the paint connects between two of the "bars". I have the same problem on every version of this mold I have, all the way back to the original Classics Optimus Prime.

Dammit!

I was hoping to avoid that Black Prime, but MAN is it awesome!

I really like it, but I'm not sure it's worth $100 when I already have the SDCC version.

I'll hold out and hope for a BBTS sale at some point.

I couldn't control my need to have this FE Tokyo Toyshow Optimus Prime, and I broke down and ordered him today.

I have been eyeballing this figure for weeks. I couldn't take not having it any longer... =P~
