The figures themselves were basically the AOE figures, sprayed chrome in what it came out of the box. Some sets were pretty decent, while some had defects like uncoloured parts. The alternate mode was not painted. Some who tried to transform just got the stock colour showing through. Came packed in the cut up deluxe bubble slotted in a black cardboard box.
I managed to pick up a Bumblebee. Slug sold out first.

Gold and Silver chrome figures are usually handed out as limited pieces, mostly as raffle or contest pieces. This is exceptional I'll admit (especially that only the outer shell is chromed!), but chromed figures have a certain status to them thanks to their rarity.

.. i whole hell of a lot more accurate than the damn regular release.
i really wish they had used a nice pearlish grey plastic with silver paint, and maybe some color accents.
i went out with my mom today to help her get mulch, soil, and plants, and we ran into TRU.. and even she asked why they don't look the same as they do on the rendering that's on the card.

More than 1000 fans showed up at Hasbro's Transformers Age of Extinction Toy Madness @ 2200 event at Toys R Us at Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore to be the first to own the toys from the new Transformers movie. The top spender of the night walked away with a Gold-Chrome Transformers 4 Optimus Prime Leader (with display case) which is limited to Toys R Us Star Card members only. Fans also put their skills to the test in a race against fellow fans to convert Transformers figurines and have their photos taken with their favourite Transformers characters. Casts from local movie Ah Boys To Men were also there to interact with the fans.[/quote]

Heh. In asia its weird to see a Toysrus NOT in a mall
Ive been to the US once a year ago so i got a feel of what your malls were like there. Vastly different.
Also, the winner of the gold prime is only announced in june. But i know the guys i was queuing with racked up at least $2k sgd that night.

I do hope, as he speculates, that we get a Silver Knight version of this down the line.
