I was all meh on this but these in-hand images have changed my tune. Will it work with the US release color scheme?

TFsource and BBTS both believe they will get these, but I was impatient and pre-ordered thru Captured Prey.

See, I'm not so sure about the hands holding hands thing... Inventive way to attach them, yeah... but could have used a back cover so it wasn't so... blatant... Otherwise shaping up to be pretty cool.

Lol if they shot lasers we could call them handguns.
Oh god that was bad, even for me.

This looks really good, I think I'll wait till after Christmas though, need my money for other things right now.

Forces are holding me back on this for QC reasons. So I'm waiting for that one soul that took one for the team to give an over all review here or video review. Even with a couple of minor flaws I can see myself all over this with my still unopened United Prime. :VEHI:

Seeing this pic makes me regret not buying the United version of the figure. I'm still hoping that they will re release this figure. But until then, I ain't paying the after market price for him, still will look good with the RTS version. I just hate the mish mash look in alt mode of the RTS.

it's a nice upgrade to a lackluster figure, but I still prefer the original laser Optimus. And since I still have it, I passed on this, but I did pick up a RTS Prime from Marshalls the other day, I may have to open it up just for kicks.

It's remarkable how little repainting this would need to become a Scourge upgrade.

Come on Hasbro, you know you want to do it! It's easy and will sell lots of toys. :D

I heard the Drift swords is only for the first batch. I hate that. Still, I might not even get this set anyway. The price is fairly reasonable, but I can't afford it.

This set looks superb, i'm not sure yet if i'll be getting this but it sure is tempting.

The add-on set looks suitably boss on United Laser Prime. The only thing I dislike about this set is how the hands are simply held by the core figure. Looks kind of lame.

On another note: what the hell??!! Where are pre-orders? Maybe MakeToy just have uber love for the home nation and are going to make us Westerners suffer with a delayed release. Something's certainly out of sorts here.

A friction fit is a better option for you?

Plus, as stated multiple times, if you don't mind paying up front like TFSource, CapturedPrey is a great site. It also appears to be 5-10 bucks cheaper than BBTS.

EDIT: Apologies, the CapturedPrey talk is on another thread.

You and me both. They're in KY which is closer to me-hoping that shaves a day or so off the ship time.

I too pre-ordered this through Captured Prey along with the new Kabaya kits.
