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.

Hideous. Saving so much money on this movie line. I only want a few of the toys.

Chrome on exhaust canisters on legs? Nope.

Chrome on grill? Nope.

This makes that Prime mold almost not look like total crap ... Almost.

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, quite honestly the first place I would've put chrome would be the shotgun.

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

The Platinum series is a TRU exclusive... Mostly.

Yeah, Toys 'R Us is the way to go, other than BBTS.

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.

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.

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.

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.
