Sheesh...Big Bad Toy Store is really scamming us on the price of these =; =; =; . I cannot pay $34.99 plus shipping for that Prime when Hasbro MSRP is $19.99. I'll wait and see if this fig makes it onto Hasbro site or I'll get it off Ebay later. The fact that the fig has no knee articulation pretty much kills paying a premium for it.

I'm tempted but I want to see if they get a general release or at HTS. I want those Primes for my collection but I'd also not like to pay $60 :)

Agreed. I'd love to pick up that Megatron, but despite the fact that he is Voyager size, I am not going to pay full Voyager price for an upscaled Legends figure.

I was only able to order Starscream but it'll have to sit in my POL for a little bit. BBTS probably had to get these through a second party thus why the prices are higher. Right now besides Robot Kingdom, who are almost sold out, they are the only way to get these figures easily.

The big news today was that the elusive Transformers Cyber Series (which are GIANT simpler transforming figures) are now available at a US e-tailer. However, the price of importing them does make them over the Hasbro MSRP so people aren't sure to go all in or not, understandably. So, to help out those on the fence, here is a review of the Optimus Prime (who we also just got some new pics of).

Neonkiwi sent this bot toys video review our way. Enjoy!

Woah, using the old cart quantity trick (capped at 24 now, but still), there are 5 Starscreams left. Didn't check the others because I barely have time to even post this, but figured some folks may want a heads up on that.

It's not scamming, it's supply and demand, it's importing, it's all sorts of factors. You're much more likely to get scammed by getting it "off Ebay later".

And plus the demand is there, they are almost sold out of them. They were sold out at robot kingdom before it.

"Scamming" was a poor word choice on my part. I know it's supply and demand. I just don't think BBTS should have had to pay a premium and then pass it on to us. I bet they will be pricey on Ebay later unless demand wanes in the future. Maybe we will see these at TJ Maxx down the line.

I see, did they do the same with the GDO figures? Becasue this is what I associate this release to most.

The transformation of that Cyber Commander Optimus is very similar to the Superme Class Beast Hunters Optimus Prime. Interesting, but only if I could find it live and on sale.

Starscream would be a sure buy, but only if found locally.

What is it with all the new Prime's that they can't add fuel tanks to these huge open areas of the vehicle modes?

So these came in stock at Robot Kingdom earlier this week/late last week (don't remember exactly), and they came in early. Weren't expected until August after being delayed from May. I found that out by cruising through my Twitter feed, where literally tens (ok, probably more like five) of the random Japanese TF fan accounts that I follow, plus their retweets, contained pictures of these in-hand. As these are "GDO" figures, aka probably not intended to ever hit the US, I wondered where they got them from, but immediately checked RK. There they were, except there was only Grimlock (thank goodness!) and the big Bee. Got 'em ordered, and once NYC customs processes it they'll be on their merry way down here to NC.

Then they hit BBTS today. I didn't think anything about it at first. They have a direct Hasbro account and can probably order whatever they want. But then they sold out of some of them really, really quick. Just like RK did.

These can't be in that much of demand, right? If so, Hasbro needs to take note and get their money printers going (aka, these molds) and get them on shelves here pronto. If not, and these are only at this level of popularity due to lack of availability (you know this amplifies demand, it's just how things go and I'm super guilty of this myself so, you know, not knockin' it), then, well, I realized something.

I think BBTS got their stock from RK and is re-selling it at a markup (which, honestly, with international shipping and what they're charging, it'd be a tiny markup, so that's probably the biggest hole in this theory). I ain't mad, and I have no proof of this, but I'm just sayin'.

Doesn't matter really, got 'em all on the way to me and I'm going to have fun, so cheers to that and I'm glad that they weren't a total headache to get!

Since he's grey and a tank I get a bit of a mild WFC/War within vibe from Megatron.

I think Hasbro is being a bit sneaky as most of those have built in repaint potential.

Green or G1 colour Grimlock
Green or Purple Megatron
Perhaps a reverse colour scheme Optimus or Nemesis Prime (and boy would that larger Optimus make one heck of a cool Nemesis Prime)
They might be more tempted to repaint the smaller one as Nemesis Prime and simply reissue the other one with Black legs and some white stripes or something like that.

I think the larger Bumblebee is OK as a stand alone but other wise a little silly The smaller One is Ok - either could be done in black deco.

I think the best looking one is Megatron as he's got reasonable articulation and is just sort of interesting looking.

Starscream isn't to bad but I feel he is lacking because of not having any knees. Lots of repaint potential there obviously.

The smaller Optimus doesn't especially thrill me. I hear the Grimlock has some structural weakness in it that causes it to break unfortunately.

I'd buy the bigger Optimus if I can find one though - I do like that quite a lot.

Crap, for real? Do you know what the issue is? Really don't want to break mine when it comes in.

And I thought the figures could not get any worse.

Oh and I find it slightly amusing that the big Optimus has ankle tilts but no knees.

Do you find these worse than the RID 3 steps?

To accompany yesterday's clip of the Transformers Cyber Commander Optimus Prime figure, we also have a video review by Bot Toys, with unboxing, of its wave-mate Bumblebee. As a reminder, these are the larger figures in the line, and come with very few articulation points and transformation steps, but have a certain appealing aesthetic to some collectors. Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
