Looks like Platinum here means chrome applied on random places just not there where it would make sense. And there don't seem to be any paint apps on Optimus to make his robot-mode more interesting.
I would even go as far as saying that the normal version looks better than this.

well that explains why there arent any paint apps, gives them the excuse to make "platinum" editions and charge even more. I bet its also a TRU exclusive & will be $50 or $60.

That should be #15 of 30 in the Thrilling 30's after First Edition Optimus Prime, #14 of 30. And considering Voyagers cost like $25 these days, $50 for the two together isn't such a bad deal. >:oP

Eh. While it is the only two figures I'll probably end up buying from the whole movie line this time around, the most interesting thing about it is the box art. While the chrome does make Optimus look more G1 it doesn't do anything for Grimlock. If I find this and the two figures separately at the same time it'll come down to which ones are cheaper.

What is it with chrome lately? (and wow, they didn't even chrome the parts of the truck that should be chrome)

The box art looks like Optimus just decked Grimlock. :lol: Just like the trailer

I really don't understand where their head is at with this chrome. If you look at Prime's robot mode, what are supposed to be his smoke stacks are RED! Not even the same grey they are in truck mode. I don't mind the "cheat" like some might, but at least give a good illusion. Platinum is supposed to be for "the adult collector" and apparently all we want is random chrome on the regular retail stuff? Also, Grimmy's horns are way too big, they look more like bunny ears.

Posted by sdn1337 on April 6th, 2014 @ 1:30pm CDT
On this version you can see prime has a faceplate. 8)

I think thats a nice touch even though most of the chrome is just there to be there. These figures both look fun though.

Posted by Bumblevivisector on April 6th, 2014 @ 2:07pm CDT
Seems they tried to simulate a punch by superimposing 2 different pics together, but the resulting box art looks more like Op gently elbowing Grimmy to get his attention away from whatever's on his left.

I decided to start just enjoying the movies while buying only a few non-Cyberverse toys back with ROTF, and while new Dinobots were destined to be exceptions to that rule, I'm going to be at a loss as to which Grimlock I want until I actually see them in store. So far the only stuff I definitely want is the Evolution packs and Construct-Bots Dino-armor guys (IDR if they had a proper name); 3 months ago, I never would've believed I'd be saying that.

As for the chrome, my collection's suffered enough Transmetal nightmares over the last 8 years or so that I'd just as soon see it all replaced by shiny paint apps. I'll be in the camp waiting for this set to clearance, if I bother with it at all.

Prime looks better than the retail version and overall I do like this mould, but why put the chrome in all the wrong places Hasbro? Lets see if Takara can do better.
Re: Official Images: Transformers: Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Optimus Prime & Grimlock Set (1563173)
Posted by kirbenvost on April 6th, 2014 @ 2:10pm CDT
The faceplate is what interests me most about this. Otherwise, the chrome application is poorly thought out and Grimlock is a missed opportunity to do a G1-esque deco. If anything this just gives me hope for a Takara version with better paint apps and a faceplate.

these are probably going to cost at least $70-$80 in Canada. So they look BETTER than the retail releases. Quite a few spots on these don't even make sense. Color me interested, but at a reduced price. Also Optimus has a faceplate!

They keep giving Beast Mode Grimlock those stinkin' Rabbit Ears. Drives me nuts.

Anyway, since I really want these too, I may pick this up, but I want to wait and see what Takara Tomy has to offer first.

Strange, you'd think the grill, fuel tanks and bumper would have been the first things they'd chrome. Kind of random.

Face looks better with the plate though. I ordered the regular Hasbro version; would be cool if a 3rd party company made a kit with a couple of alternative heads for it (one with a face plate, a cartoon-accurate face..) And maybe a different gun. I'm in it for the truck mode though. :)

Those molds are really FANTASTIC. But why pay more for the random chrome of the "platimun" edition? Just buy the regular Hasbro ones. They are really worth it.

Don't really get how they can put those pictures on the box and not make the figures movie accurate in a collector's Platinum edition. You don't have to see to kids with bright colors and chrome for a line like this, give us something that makes them worth the price!

Speaking of price, don't expect it to be very reasonable. Sure, the Grimlock vs Bruticus set was a good price and MP Prime wasn't bad either, but Supreme Starscream was way over priced, and Ultra Magnus was double the price of Weaponizer Prime at $60. I'm thinking these will be closer to $70-$80 since Hasbro hates to chrome figures and seems to see it as a premium.

$100 for different decos on the Combaticons and some awful yellow chrome on Grimlock, when individually, the figures cost around $80 together (I'm figuring $20 for Grimlock and $12 for each of the Combaticons). I don't think a bad chrome job and "exclusive" decos justify a $20 premium, personally. I do agree with you about all the other figures, though. :APPLAUSE:

I agree, but compared to the SDCC Combaticons which are the same figures without Grimlock for the same price it's pretty reasonable.

And yes, I hate chrome on Transformers. Mainly because it's often silver chrome paired with gray plastic or gold chrome paired with gold-ish plastic, the difference is too jarring. I actually like the chrome on Beast Wars figures because they usually used the chrome for that one color throughout the figure, not just in random patches.

Meh. Chrome is always welcome as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't splash out money for them (I don't particularly like the Voyager Grimlock, and whilst the Prime looks great, I've got my RID Prime) but if I was bying them I'd prefer the chrome versions.

I wonder if you could add the chrome effect on the standard figures at home with paint?

If you had paints with a metallic sheen, maybe. Real "chrome" is actually vacuum-metalised plastic and as such requires a separate set of machinery. I recall one Japanese fan commissioning a factory to completely metalise his Fortress Maximus!

O_O That takes dedication. It must have come out beautiful though.

Still, i hope this was done fairly recently or to a very high standard- my RID Prime's stomach chrome has very sadly almost entirely flaked away (although the translucent blue-green underneath actually looks pretty sweet...) and the thought of such a labour of love/money flaking away saddens my heart.

I know you can use paints to get an effect very similar to vacuum-metallization, but I think you're right that true chrome (like the kind you got on the Microman line) needs special machinery.

That lovely candy metallic sheen that figures like the old Soul of Chogokin Evangelions (not the SPECs) had is completely possible with paint though. I'd love to see a Prime done in candy-apple red, maybe with a metallic flake effect.

If I decide to purchase the Voyagers of these two, this is the route I will go. The chrome may be in some silly places on Prime, but at least it breaks up that bland hardly any paint applied scheme used on the regular retail release. The addition of the mouthplate is a real plus too.

Get ready for more scrappy looking weak skeleton form robot modes from yet another crappy movie. Man I had hopes they wouldn't completely blow it this time but no luck. The only thing that they got right is optimus primes vehicle mode. But then he transformes into a skeleton looking robot. Where's the beef?

Ah, Hasbro, who needs stand up comedy when we have your business decisions to look at. Seriously random chrome is silly. What both of these figures needed to hook collectors was proper paint apps, Optimus to bring out his detail, and Grimlock in his movie colours (what we have seen in the trailer at least.) Chrome wouldn't be a bad thing in the right places on Prime...but...I mean this is random and silly... #-o

It's worrying how badly they just don't have their finger on the pulse with this anymore...

The funny thing is, that shot makes me like that toy a lot more. In any case, I actually love the paintjob and vehicle mode on it, but the robot mode kinda makes me cringe.

@Fires_Of_Inferno: A bit off topic, but hating the entirety of anime seems a bit...hasty? I mean, crap like Naruto and Dragon Ball maybe, but Miyazaki movies, Akira, Evangelion, Gunbuster, anything by Satoshi Kon... Really?

I get that a lot of movieverse bots do look skeletal, but the dinos don't. Grimlock especially is one chunky beast, and Slug(?) has a lot of bulk to him too. Love the way they've gone with these guys, especially their heads.
