That seems to be the case from the second image, but the third one shows them reversed. :-?

Looks like it.

The overall color scheme is looking a lot more thought out. I actually like the relatively darker blues combined with the black, silver, and deep red tones.

If you can stand the gold chrome, this might make a nice G2 Prime stand-in.

Hm, I don't have Masterpiece OP (cause they sold out everywhere...) so maybe I should get this guy. The altered insignia is a bit of a pain, but not the end of the world (would have been cool if I'd been a horse, but I'm a monkey, maybe in 2 years we'll get a cool mold for our zodiac figure). I think I'll have to limit myself to a big discount, if that never happens I think I'll just wait for a reissue of regular Prime, which should come eventually.

Oh, and the insignia on different shoulders is probably just because the picture was mirrored. Wouldn't it be cool if they were switchable though and it came with a pair of each?

Though places like TFsource have this guy on preorder for $165+, BBTS has stated that they'll list theirs for cheaper once the official preorder date comes along soon after the New Year - probably around $120, which is reasonable.

Plus, since this is a Platinum Edition and looks very, very Americanized to boot, we'll probably see this at TRU, too.

Ya, of that I've no doubt. Just like all the other Platinum figures, it'll show up at TRU. And the only reason I want such a discount (besides the obvious ones) is because I'd really rather the original, but if this one were to be affordable, I'd go for it as a substitute.

Platinum Omega Supreme
Platinum Optimus Prime
Platinum Predaking

None of them are available at TRU stores.

The only Platinum figures at TRU, as far as I know, are Ultra Magnus and the Grimlock/Bruticus set.

Is that right? I could have sworn I at least saw that Optimus in stores. I'm pretty sure I actually still see him. (Edit: yup, I'm not crazy. http://www.cybertron.ca/boards/showthread.php?t=46315) Don't think I ever saw Omega. And Predaking was/is on the online TRU site (at least in Canada). http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp ... d=28391916 But sure, I could be wrong. Overall the Platinum figures aren't selling all that well so TRU might not want them anymore (though for the MP-10 mold they'll probably want some).

Ah, looks like he has Cyber Keys. If anyone still collects those, there are 2 new ones to get! He looks okay but I won't need him.

I was also just going to ask what the symbols were in the insignias, but thought that the Autobot one kind of looked like a stylized version of the Chinese character for horse, 馬 (mǎ). So I looked it up and that's what they are, with the Decepticon one being an older form of the character. Pictured below for reference (the last two). This was probably posted before but I just found out now, and I think it's interesting enough to repost for others who might not know.

That is very cool. Now I'm really hoping Monkey gets a cool figure. Fingers crossed for Masterpiece Optimus Primal! Yes, even though he's an ape.

Canadian TRU stores got these toys, but U.S. TRU stores only got Grimlock/Bruticus and Ultra Magnus.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the info. Strange how that happened. More often than not it's the other way around.

In the U.S., Omega Supreme, OP, and Predaking were Amazon/BBTS shared exlusives. Where they available through Amazon.CA? Maybe in Canada they went to TRU instead of Amazon?

If this was an Amazon/BBTS release, I'm actually thinking OP for $100 and SC for $80, matching the previous TRU release of masterpieces (Thundercracker instead of SC). That being said, I wouldn't mind paying $120+shipping for the OP.

I'm pretty sure the last TRU MP OP was $119.99 or $129.99. I think the Amazon-BBTS exclusive "Platinum" repaint of ENERGON OP was $100 or less, but not the MP OP. IF TRU carries this new MP OP, it will surely be more than $100.

SS, on the other hand, is NOT a MP, so it will probably be priced lower than MP TC. I would expect it to be more in in line with something like Platinum UM: $59.99.

with the yellow chrome and ghost-y trailer, I think Horsey Optimus looks hideous, but not quite hideous enough to get him.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Thinking about it, the translucent trailer is fairly bold, and very surprising.

I wonder if this willingness to go clear will result in a ghost MP-11 'Screamer.

I can't be the only one that actually likes Optimus, am I? Probably because I don't own the original Hasbro/Toys "R" Us release.

My only thing against Starscream is that I wish the crown had more paint to make the detail pop. But then I guess it would be just a repackage of the original crown.

Just hope they will be available in retail stores. I don't even care if they're at Toys "R" Us again.
