Same here, any word on who will be carrying this?

I thought I would really like this in all green, but now after seeing it I'm not so sure. I think it might look better in camo. May just go with the regular prime colors.

I don't need an extra Prime, so I'll probably get the one in green if/when a place to order it shows up.

I think I may call him Big Shot.

Love the paint apps/job on the red/blue GP. The trailer seems to have quite a few nice extra features instead of just sitting there lol. I looked over their web site but could not find any info on price...

OoOOoO very nice! Im torn on the colors though. Does the green server as a homage to anyone? Im not too familiar with it. Might just get the green one, not too many big green transformers around :P

It's the color scheme of the original GI Joe Rolling Thunder toy that his altmode is based on.

I really wanted the green version to be darker and more muted. That bright green may be a deal-breaker.

In this picture the colors seem darker. Which I hope is correct.

This picture, the colors are much lighter which I am hoping has to do with the camera.

Nice figure! WIsh i could afford some of these third party figs.

Looking at his chest, where the front grill of the vehicle mode is...am I crazy or does that look like there's going to be a speaker there?

It looks to be just the front grill that opens up and houses the matrix.

I absolutely love Don Figueroa's designs, and Rolling Thunder is up there with the best. But I'm just not sure if this figure does him justice. And what's with the bright blue cannons? An easy pass given everything else that's coming up.

So glad that they did decide to do a green one as well as a normal Prime colored one. I'll be picking up the green one and I've already have a spot for him on my shelf. Now, where is that dang preorder???
Re: New Images of Xovergen's Supreme Tactical Commander Grand Patriot (1156621)

Not bad, but damn that green is bright.
Waiting for the Nemesis version and if that won't show up I may take the G1 coloured one.
Re: New Images of Xovergen's Supreme Tactical Commander Grand Patriot (1156630)
Posted by El Duque on December 12th, 2010 @ 2:27pm CST
I think I'll be going with the green version. It's actually pretty cool of them to offer both color schemes up front, instead of releasing the traditional color first then waiting till those have sold and offering the alternate. Just like the KnightMorpher form Mastermind creations, had they listed the Black and tradition colors up front I would have just got the black version, because it looks more realistic in alt mode. Although it sounds like they improved the figure for the black release so I'm cool with re-buying it.

Posted by DecepticonFinishline on December 12th, 2010 @ 2:27pm CST
I like the green one a lot. It reminds me of the Classics 2.0 Springer, and I think it's a very creative idea to have Prime and Springer share the same protoform mold. Not that it's meant to be Springer... But... You guys know what I'm getting at.

Yea, as much as this is cool, I don't like either colours, since I was hoping for the yellow orange scheme... I'll save the cash for the FP Junkions and future projects like Broadside.

My bad if that doesn't end up an actual "Broadside", but it might be. Either way, that looks like its gonna be a sick triple changer.

There's no info, only concept drawings. So we'll see if they decide to do it.

As for this Rolling Thunder Prime, it's got a strange-looking head sculpt, but it's a nice looking toy. Kind of old-school, in a way, like it wouldn't be out of place in later G1 or G2.

They look sweet, finally a 3rd party prime that really makes my mouth water. Been waiting for a decent voyager sized prime to add to the collection since i put my classics in the DIA Commander armor

I think one of each is definitely on the cards for me.

Lack of preorder info is annoying, especially when the site gives no details either :(

Not bad. I'm tempted to get the green one and call it Springer Prime. 8)

However, Generations and The Year of Rodimus have a tight hold on my wallet.

someone should make some custom green lantern corps decal sets for the green optimus repaint

oh and some black lantern corps decals for the eventual nemesis prime release as well

The fact that I will never own this is sad, soul crushing news. Almost as soul crushing as never having gotten the City Commander armour and being flat broke right now for the release of the protector. Fucking University making me broke when awesome toys are coming out...

I really like the Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime design. This toy... not so much. Even in green, the robot mode doesn't have the military look it should. Plus it really needs a second dark color, even if not necessarily the dark gray used in the design.

A sticker set might make it good enough, I guess.

For those unfamiliar with GI Joe Rolling Thunder, here's a little YouTube clip:

Seems like they missed a great opportunity to have a Roller drone...

Hmm... forum youtube doesn't seem to work. Here's a direct link anyways: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGR3pmGjGl8

Green was the way to go here all along. I'm digging it although it is a bit bright. That blue cannon is silly looking too. Complaints aside, looks good enough to me. Curious how much these'll run and who'll be carrying them.

#1 - How much?
#2 - Through who?

I'm so torn. I love the prime colors, but the green is so different. I'm definitely getting one once I know where, they look amazing and their "base" actually conveys being a portable base.

I think I'll preorder one (not sure which) and wait for a review if Xovergen hit it out the park and are worth my poverty.

I'm interested, but price, as well as size will help me make the decision.

If I get the green one (which I'm leaning towards) I'd probably eventually repaint him in camo.

A preorder is available at BBTS!
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/prod ... ode=retail

HOWEVER, realizing people would play favorites, it's only available in a 2-pack for both of them. All told it's about $90 per figure, but getting both is a big commitment.

That blows, unless somebody sells they or someone else sells them seperately then I wont be enjoying one. It's a shame really. Here's hoping they change their minds.

Indeed. I love their note about how they'll only make them separate if they get a case of RED but not a case of green.

Yeah not really digging that I have to order both, when I only want the green. What the Hell, I'll preorder it for now. If someone else offers them individually I'll cancel. If I end up with both I can alwasy sell the red and blue version.
Re: New Images of Xovergen's Supreme Tactical Commander Grand Patriot (1156963)

I think I'll wait for these to hit a sale.

I don't happen to have $180 right at the moment with FREAKING CHRISTMAS around the corner.

I may have squeezed out about a $100 for one of these, and if it was cool, I may have sprung for the second later, but this is too much cash with too little notice.

Just yesterday, we revealed details of Xovergen's Supreme Tactical Commander Grand Patriot release, and now site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com has opened a preorder for the figure.

Just one catch, though: the figure is only available as a two pack featuring both the "classic" red/blue deco and the green deco, with the pair retailing $179.99. The figure is slated to be released later this month.

Too expensive! I'm still thinking about the Anhiilator, and this costs about the same if it was only one, and really isn't that great to get 2 of them, that tie 1 by a set of 2, will make them lost a lot of clients... anyways, I wasn't one of them ;)
