:PRAY: Please please please let the QC on this be almost flawless and the other thing I'm hoping if for HasTak to do a Nemesis repaint so another Tanker can be in the works! :VEHI:

I want one. However, I wish it didnt have the light up gimmick because it's just a reason to add 50 bucks to the price. Not something Im really gonna use in my display case.

Simple yet effective at making this already great figure into a truly stand out piece. This has me feeling like I did w/ City Commander all over again :APPLAUSE: . Looking forward to this set...CMON BBTS! :BOOM:

Some people who get Battle Tanker and don't have Drift probably aren't gonna use it that much, you should put it in your signature. :grin:

That's fair but it's a pretty close homage to what he's based on. Like it or not. ;) I prefer the United version myself although I did run out to get a RTS one just to be sure which one matched better with this.

I like this set even more with every new picture. I'm a bit surprised how much height it adds. I wasn't expecting it to be that much since the original feet fold up.

It is limited to the first releases of this set.

So that's what the gold sticker on the box was!

Well the Pre-order on Capture Prey has sold out before I was able to reserve one. :-x I haven't found it anywhere else, do any of you guys have a link for some place that I may get one?

Thanks

Pics have now elevated this to Amazeballs level of coolness. 8) However, I still want a Scourge version. I will probably regret this later, but I was never that big of a fan of G2 Prime.

I don't have the United G2 Version... as of yet!

Does anyone have any photos of what this will look like with the RTS G2 version of Optimus Prime?

Which one does it look better with?

A friction fit is a better option for you?


Apologies, I should've worded that better. It's not so much that the hands are held by the figure, but rather the fact that they are so visible that bugs me. Wouldn't have thought it'd take much work to cover them up.

I seriously doubt this would be $50 cheaper without the light up gimmick.

seconded. I love the design, and if I'd been able to get a G2 Prime once this was announced, I'd be all over it, but am content to wait for the Scourge version...C'mon Hasbro, it's one colour of plastic for the figure, 1 colour of plastic for the windows/eyes and very minimal paint apps. Dooooo it!

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first, full video review for the set:

Not too shabby-just with it was voyager-sized with the add-ons. However, given the original size of the figure, they did a lot with what they had to work with.

I still think RtS Prime is a crap figure, but this thing looks epic. Glad I pre-ordered...

If HasTak would just make toys that look this good in the first play, I wouldn't have to blow all my money on third party ad-ons.
