Pretty sexy. I love the red edged blades. Looks like he just went Kill Bill on everyone.

It's funny that the US got a domestic release of "Starry" Prime featuring hooks, and Japan is now getting a release with blades.

I was about to say that. I still don't know which I'd prefer, the Japanese has better colors and the silver matrix, while the US has the swords but an unpainted matrix.

Im not a fan of Black Primes. I like bule Primes better. I did pick up the one with the stars at walmart for only $17.99 and it comes with a free deluxe repaint. Great deal.

This looks like Scourge from RiD got a Bayverse makeover.

To bad it's not a leader. Would make one hell of a Nemesis Prime.

Black Prime limited repaint. Do I want it? No. I've been burned enough time on these when a comparable figure is released exclusively across the way, and then released here also.

Lawson's Blackout is the big one for me... I am very selective after that debacle.

Downright gorgeous. Big fan of black Prime repaints, and the red edged blades make me think of my favorite, Scourge.

I have it for now, but if I can secure a cheaper alternative I will.

Wow, the color scheme is a lot more impressive than I expected. Almost IDW The Fallen like. Too bad he's so expensive. and still has Autobot symbols?

Yea, OWW!

I put it on preorder too, but I suspect someone will have it for a but less than that.

If you spot a better deal let me know.

I did the yen conversion and it works out to over $80, so he won't be cheap in any event.

Hello, Blurrz, look at your Prime, now back to me, now back at your Prime, now back to me. Sadly, it isn’t Lawson's, but if you stopped being thrifty and gave into the Counterpunching, it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re next to a shelf with the Prime your Prime could look like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s a Lawson's Dark Side Prime homaging Black Fire Convoy. Look again, the Prime is now Shining Unicron. Anything is possible when your Prime looks like Lawson's and not ordinary. I’m not Counterpunch.

I wonder why, after all this time, this mold is still being pictured without its "complete" transformation. The undocumented steps like extending the front bumper for the heel, or adjusting the arm panels to give more hand clearance. Even the "collarbone" effect of the cab windows is largely ignored. That said, it's still a sweet repaint.

I don't care for the gold/yellow coloring.

This looks like a photoshop job over the original stock photos, which were equally wrong.

That is the best line ever. Can we get this put to a commercial in the style of the Old Spice Man?

OMG, he looks great! To bad it's an exclusive, that voyager ROTF Optimus Prime mold is awesome, just like the Leader class Buster Prime.
I hope they'll repaint that mold as much as they did the Movie 1 voyager (didn't like the mold but it had a crazy amount of repaints)

Side question, is it confirmed that there's going to be a DOTM Leader class Megatron?

Why doesn't Hasbro repaint cool molds? I'd love to see some inverted colours repaints.
