I have to admit the colours on both Optimus and Grimlock here are pretty neat. Grimlock's colours are a nice way to envoke his actual movie colours with the grey and bronze/gold flwoing into the mold. If you got rid of the blue and green on him to replace them with more shades of gray and bronze he'd look amazing.

As for Optimus his dark blue and red look sweet on him not to mention the blue on his windshields and sword look a LOT better then the yellow on the offical release. The chrome on his chest and head look crazy but other then that I'm digging this paint scheme. If I don't end up buying the Armoured Knight version of the Optimus mold and maybe the Black Knight Grimlock repaint from Takara I'll at least consider buying this set instead since I dig the colours in this set way more then the mainline paint schemes.

As much as I really like that deco on Grimlock, I just can't justify paying that price, especially when I don't care for that mold for Optimus.

Got to admit,Hasbro has done a marvellous job painting Grimlock :APPLAUSE: .In my opinion,that Optimus does not look too bad even with all the chrome.In fact, I do like him :D .I might order it mostly for Grimlock than for Optimus.

Bounti76,


If you are not willing to pay for this set, you can also get Black Knight Grimlock from Takara.After all, Black Knight Grimlock looks almost identical to this one.

I already paid 60$ plus taxes for EACH of the REGULAR leaders. So, even if this set were to be released in Quebec (it wont because TrU are asshat) I wont pay an even more inflated price for some minimum deco differences. Grimlock look a bit more different than the Optimus, but it's not different enough to justify buying the whole set, plus paying for shipping, plus the scalper surcharge.

So, nope.

However, if you dont already own eitheir of these molds, this could be a nice set to own. As long that you are American, or non-Quebec Canadian.

PrimeUltimus, the images of the TRU Optimus Prime-Evolution set show AOE Prime with his mask, but I've read elsewhere that he doesn't have it. Does anyone know for certain? Is it possible there is a variant or "running change" with this set?

I got the set and he has *checks it out* a mouth. So no mask for Evolution Movie Prime.

P.S. Anybody have any tips for tightening up Evolution Classics Prime's shoulders??

The Platinum Edition Grimlock is amazing! I got mine from Robot Kingdom (didn't think they were gonna come out here) so there's my buyer's remorse of the day... I paid 150$... oh well! I thought about the Takara one... but the blue and silver looked better. And there was less orange.

At least now I can hope to snap the Platinum Edition Autobots United and Dinobots Unleashed!

I'm not happy with the Platinum Optimus Prime leader. It's too much chrome... not only does it wear out over time but I can see my fingerprints all over it... and it's still the same mold. But I really love the Grimlock figure, the paint is amazing and... no chrome!

The Optimus evolution pack... I would have gotten it but I am not a fan of the face mold... then again his eyes are painted instead of light piping so I'll take a look in person before I decide.... why does TRU's photo show the battle mask though...

How many of you are still enjoying the ConstructBots line? Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has another review to keep you going, looking at Hound with his dino partner/armour Wideload - though he doesn't seem as positive this time round. Check it out below!

Sharing the same basic build as Lockdown, Hound in vehicle mode has more of a car look than I like and feel a military vehicle should have. I do like the build although I think younger hands will have a hard time snapping the pieces on and off the frame without stressing the plastic or pinching their fingers. Wide Load is missing something from making it an interesting partner and the armor mode is rather uninspired. I can recommend the kit only for a Constructbot die hard.

100$ for the pair? That's really reasonable for a premium set. Considering that each of the normal ones go for 55-60$ + taxes.

Yeah, but with the current exchange rate and shipping, it is still mega expensive for us Canadians, eh?

I went by a couple of Targets in my area and I saw that exclusive Leader class Silver Knight OP was reduced to $50. Not bad but I hope it drops a bit more. It seems to be the only OP from this latest movie line that has me interested.

I think everything else AOE was also marked down too. So if your still missing something have a look...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Not really. At worst, it will be roughly the same price as if you had bought the two at TrU with full taxes. Instead of the normal releases, you get the platinum versions. Not a bad deal, if you are willing to pay full regular price.
