Other then the chrome I kinda like him.

That being said, the only way I'm getting him is if I can find him on clearance.

I like the blue sword.

That's about it, though.

This is one of those cases where I know it's a bad, overpriced mold, but the deco is enough to make me want it anyway. Something about the chrome and metallic shades on this one just pops. I wish it didn't. Oh well, off to check Target!

Did you get the Target 2 pack silver knight optimus with Grimlock? Because the deco on that deluxe optimus prime is Phenimenal! So, if you dont have it yet, make sure you get it at Target while you are there.

And JelZe GoldRabbit, I know what you wanted. I just find that picture so hilarious that I include it anywhere possible. So when you asked to see the vehicle mode, I thought it was a great opportunity to use that picture again to show that it was possible for someone to show us both modes of Silver Knight Optimus if they wanted to.

Everyone can see both vehicle and robot modes at the Target website:

http://www.target.com/p/transformers-pl ... um+edition

However, the toy looks ugly at the official photos: there are no chromed details and the vehicle mode is plain white and red (no blue, no chrome).

The Platinnum Silver Knight OP looks awesome.
I ran out to Target and picked one up today.
The sixty bux took some convincing of myself though.

They also had this six pack of bots:

But lacking the appeal of Animated Activators(basically the same idea),
which I did like, I couldnt pull the trigger.
But the Slug looks really nice from the set(the only one I liked)

Any sighting in Canada for that SK 1stEd OP? As a Target exclusive, I'm confident to see it in Quebec, because contrary to TrU, Target are not assholes.

The in-hand pictures look better than the official ones from Target website.
It seems they took photos of a toy without the silver paint applications ...

i know leader op and FE op are both backpack-tastic... but FE is the worst of the two. that truck mode is plainest truck in plain town. unfortunately im one of the poor souls who likes shiney things.

i wont go out of my way to get him. but ill probably grab it if i see it.

The Transformers YouTube channel has been busy these past few days, posting a number of new clips! The first three, embedded below, are demo videos and a Designer Desk one, focusing on the gigantic Stomp and Chomp Grimlock, the Mega One-Step Bumblebee and the ConstructBots line. The Designer Desk video focuses on the Wal*Mart exclusive Showdown Collection, which includes the two legion size Bumblebee and Stinger, and Deluxe Generations Strafe. Check 'em all out below!

Transformers Toy Designer, Ramon Campos and Marketing Director, Jerry Jivoin, showcase the Stinger versus Bumblebee Showdown Collection, available exlcusively at Wal-Mart.






Transformers: Age of Extinction Grimlock Stomp & Chomp product demonstration shows how the BIGGEST dinobot ever transforms in 1 step, has lights, dino sounds, hidden weapons and an Optimus Prime figure to help activate dinobot action!




Transformers: Age of Extinction Construct-Bots product demonstration shows how it's easy to build and convert with all new action features.





Transformers: Age of Extinction Mega 1-Step Bumblebee product demonstration shows how you can flip it fast between robot and vehicle modes.

First we got our three-pack, which includes the highlight of the set, Stinger.

Then we got our six Legends figures, which include Stinger.

Then we got our two-packs with Dinobots and Legends, featuring Stinger.

And then comes our Construct-Bots Strafe set, which has Stinger.

We feel these Walmart sets will offer a new experience (and did we mention Stinger?).

Just found the Evolution Optimus Prime set yesterday at the Woodfield area TRU, thanks to a local poster, char_leigh.

FWIW, I noticed a couple of QC faults with the Classics mold. The side panel in truck mode that flips down over the leg in robot mode has part of it painted red to match the cab. Mine was missing paint around the edges of the right side panel, so the blue showed through glaringly. Also, the left knee pad has a smudge in the silver paint. Lastly, the right shoulder is loose in the forward/backward rotation.

The only one of these issues that can be seen in in the box is the knee pad smudge, I don't think you can see the red face of that side panel in robot mode, but a little paint will fix that.
