Among all the Toy Fair news, ScottyP was able to drop by the (extremely pricey) Toys R Us store in Time Square, New York, and take a picture of some of their products - including the Platinum edition Year of the Goat Optimus Prime! As expected, the set was listed at $208.99, so if it's a cheaper option you're looking for, check out the listings below from TRU online, HasbroToyShop and site sponsor BBTS, for both Optimus and his fellow goat Masterpiece Soundwave, courtesy of fellow Seibertronians shajaki and AzT:

For once there's some freaking French on the Platinum boxes, it's for some overpriced, ugly as hell things.

Sigh...

yeahh....
i like these and want to get them. and im confident ill see them locally (eventually). but if the in-store (USD) prices reported are going to be relative to us canadians, ill just go the route of other online retailers. after conversion and shipping, ive already found soundwave for less than 200 CAD.

Not true. It's not poo. It's actually delicious and awesome toys!
... Butterscotch flavored.
... Overpriced butterscotch.

Let's hope next year will be better.

Am I really the only one who likes these?

People were crapping all over YOTH Prime until they realized he was the best thing ever.

Phew! That's a relief. Glad I'm not the only one. ;)

But yes, any two of these additional paint apps would elevate YOTG Soundwave to epic proportions:
-Decepticon symbol on his chest
-Door outline
-Faceplate
-Two lines on either side of the door

I've got SW sitting in an order waiting for XTB Apollyon to drop.

I agree that some additional paints aps would've helped, but some more of the clear plastic being "butterscotch" ( :lol: ) would've helped a lot.

BTW, I still think YOTH Prime looks terrible [-(

Hell no!!!

I really don't like the gold on him. MP-10 is one of my favs, but the gold just kills it for me. The clear plastic trailer was a miss for me as well.

Ohhh, the irony of not liking clear plastic in this thread when I've also paid for YotG SW :lol:

Well, that explains it! He's really stunning in person. I thought I'd hate the gold chrome too, but the color scheme as a whole is remarkably appealing. I don't care for the trailer so much, but Optimus himself is a really beauty!

Does he have batteries for the light up gimmick or is this the "Scourge" version?

I think they are awesome because they are weird and ugly. I'm leaning more towards Prime 'cause I love that mold. I just don't think I can justify those prices, If they are still hanging around on sale (like the YOTH starscreams at my local TRU) I will gladly add their strangeness to the pile.

Sometimes I regret choosing the Asia exclusive MP Prime over YOTH.

While I might find the gold more appealing in person, just can't justify the gamble unfortunately.

You might've just helped me realise why I like this Soundwave so much :shock:

faceplate yes. but im ok with the window/cassette door BECAUSE the decepticon/YOTG symbol is pretty cool, and with a cassette inserted is actually visible. i dont mind missing one of his cronies either since rumble/frenzy and lazerbeak/buzzsaw are all the same.

I did not realize the symbol/door-outline/lines-on-side-of-door were done up in silver.

Touche, Hasbro.

As soon as the BBTS stock was announced, I ordered 2 Soundwaves. That seems to be the cheapest domestic price, until TRU's inventory goes on sale (maybe). Considering I paid $160 for the first stock of Takara's MP Soundwave, paying the same amount for a more limited deco and 5 cassettes isn't as big a ripoff in my head as it should be.

I just watched Ben's review of Goat Prime.

When I squealed with excitement, a little bit of pee came out.
