Obviously such a unique collaboration means some unique ways to obtain one. First there's standard purchasing when he's available at retail in late March 2024 for 11,000 JPY. But there's also a Japanese crowdfunding option through Campfire that comes with some unique perks. For 11,000 JPY through Campfire the figure will be available a month earlier in February 2024. For 14,300 you can add a stand (the same stand first seen with MP Beast Wars Megatron) with Lunar Cruiser Prime written on the side. And for 50,000 JPY you can get a special message from original Convoy/Optimus Prime and Lunar Cruiser Prime actor Tessho Genda himself. The campaign begins June 8, though it's not yet known when the retail pre-orders will open.
This is a pretty different collaboration that we really haven't seen the likes of before. No word on if Hasbro will take part in any form of sales, but we'll keep you posted as we find out more!

I do think a typical "Ultra Magnus" redeco would suit this nicely, though it might be a bit too blinding at the same time.

Well sure, if you want the obvious repaint. Though I do agree that Ultra Magnus would be neat, he'd be identical to Prime in Lunar Cruiser mode, but be all white in bot mode. I suppose they could do the same trick with Nemesis, replace the red with black.

TBH, though, one of the things that kept me away from most crossovers was the overuse of Prime (and Megs) as the main guy. If I wanted a Prime shelf, I'd have a Prime shelf. The Crossover line is exactly what I want - a line of desperate TF crossovers with a variety of characters. So I want to be careful how many Primes I have.
I appreciate how Canon did it. Prime, Nemesis Prime, and Reflector (the most appropriate character for the mode and the one I have sitting in my pile of loot at BBTS.) The guy oozes Prime, but I'd go for Roller or Countdown. I don't have Roller or Countdown on my shelf at all.
This one, though, I'll break for if they don't release Nemesis or Magnus colors (although I do have a "crossover" Magnus for my crossover shelf and not enough bad guys). Although, yeah, Nemesis couldn't be a black moon rover he could still have a black and white robot mode, which would look cool

Yeah, I know, Prime sell.
I'm gonna pass, but if they make a "white Prime" Ultra-Magnus repaint where the out-of-place red and blue are replaced with the white of the vehicle, I'd be all over it.

I did think, very quickly after seeing this, how great it would look next to the DOTM Walmart Prime with Comettor set; all things being equal and relative.
