It's a headmaster I must buy it no matter the cost both literally and figuratively.

Well, that explains the weird transparent but painted? dyed? tinted? colored wheels on Kup, it was part of premolding for this guy.

It will be 50$ plus 30$ shipping from Robot Kingdom, the only place I am sure will have it. That makes it $108 CDN before custom fees if applicable. These are estimates, but based on my experience with this.

You'd still be up for it? because that will pretty much be what it will end up costing you one way or another.

I've heard so many good things about the Kup mold but I never fancied getting him with that head and those colours - so this would be perfect for me.

... would be perfect. If only I could get Orion for a Deluxe price :-( Gonna hold out for Crosshairs!

WFC Prime is one of the nicest Optimus Deluxes ever made so - I'm pleased they chose him over FOC or the Classic Deluxe.

But you know what I'd not mind at all if they made a Nemesis Evolution with FOC Nemesis Prime that evolved into the much decryed Classic Deluxe in Black colours.

But I want every Optimus mould to be made in black. Orion looks nice enough - I look forward to getting a better look at his face.

A set i'd get - even though I have Takara & Hasbro WFC Prime - I like the blue on this one way more than the pink on the original.

Black legs might have been a nice change though perhaps.

Dude I just bough the last Chaos on Velocitron in my area for $112.00 just the other day even though I barely had enough to get it, and I payed almost $200 For Lio Convoy and Godbomber on Ages Three and up just about a month ago, $50 for Brainstrom a couple months ago from BBTS, I'm saving money for the second boxset from BBTS which I have preordered, I have legends Hot Rod, Kup, Sharkticon and Kickback on preorder, I plan to get that possible exclusive Bludgeon.

If I have the money I will buy it since I'm only buying Headmaster stuff and once Titans returns is over I'll probably be done besides a figure or two if I like the characters enough from a future show or movie.

I've already missed out on Wave 1 Terribull, Wave 3 Megatron and the Lg-ex Scourge, and I'm sure I will miss the chance to get Convobat before it's sold out that's not including the fact Topspin is the only one I have of wave 4 and beyond.

And we don't know if it's an exclusive in Asia right now for all we know it might come here too.

I have nothing else to spend money on since I don't have any other hobbies that require me to buy stuff and I'm taking advantage of not having bills to pay and constant disability money, I want to be proud to say I have the entirety of Titans return and I will one day go back and track down the stuff I missed.

Also I never got the WFC Optimus figure and I do have WFC Megatron.

Is the head of Pax a new mold or a repaint of TR PM Prime's head?

It's a new head if it was the leader head it would be oversized also their differently shaped.

The Powermaster Optimus Prime head has too wide of a face, plus he lacks the chin guard that Orion Pax has. Also, only TakaraTomy dares switching out heads.

Yeah, I'd say that this not being a traditionally released deluxe resets the chance of getting Crosshairs later on (Hopefully with Pointblank and the Horrocons!). I guess this is off-topic a bit, but so is the product...

EDIT: Oh, it has its own thread.

That WFC Optimus came out a few months before I started collecting transformers. This is my chance to get a mold I've been waiting for and a new head repaint of one of my favorite TR molds. Speaking of that, I tried convincing one of my friends to become addicted purchase it and see what he thinks. Turns out the TRU he was at only had wave 2 revision cases and voyager Shelflock.

So what are the chances of us getting the TR Wheelie mold as Dion at some point? :lol:

Dion tribute. The other figure will probably be prime bee in dion's colors with a dion mask made of paper glued on.

Given that it looks like this Tribute set is technically within the movie line... probably not so good any more actually.

Is it in the movie line because like Movie Optimus, these guys don't actually carry the Matrix in their chest?

I have absolutely no interest in WFC Prime whatsoever.

I do feel though that it's time I got an Orion Pax for the collection. Was never a fan of the G1 Kup repaint, but I do like the look of this one.

He did in DOTM :P

(Also WFC Prime did carry the Matrix in the second half of the Autobot Campaign just saying.)

Courtesy of a Weibo post once again, we have new images of the packaging for the upcoming Transformers: Tribute 2-Pack of WFC Optimus Prime and Orion Pax from Titans Return Kup! It proudly displays the figures alongside a little bio description for the two. As the image is a bit small, we've typed out the bio below for an easier time reading. Take a look and tell us what you think in the forums!

"Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing." The words of OPTIMUS PRIME tell of his own epic journey as the universe's greatest protector. A humble data scientist, ORION PAX accepted the MATRIX OF LEADERSHIP to become the powerful AUTOBOT commander OPTIMUS PRIME.

"Humble data scientist"? So I guess they're going with the Dreamwave War Within backstory rather than TFP's librarian, G1's factory worker or IDW's super-cop? :-?

That was Optronix, though. Orion Pax as a data clerk/archivist/librarian was Aligned.
