He looks great but just to big for my shelfs I wouldn't be able to put him up with the others. So I'm going have to skip him. I just hope if they do Glavatron he will not be this big. If I remember right I think he was the same size as Optimus in the cartoon.

He's such a hard figure to engineer. I think its a great attempt, i wonder if they'll do another redo of him to get him perfect and less bulky. But i already pre-ordered, was a huge fan of him as a kid. Now just need Galvatron and i'm done.

I think Ultra Magnus is gonna be a hell of a toy once we get to play with it.

 

But I'm just as happy to see how Wheeljack is coming along. The latest prototype they're showing has got some changes in materials and deco. Wheeljack is still my most highly anticipated. He is looking awesome.

They should have made his legs blue instead of red. Yes i get for the trailer connecting part but you don't really see it, its more of a distraction on the robot mode than vehicle.

Got a little lucky today at TRU.. Found an MP-Prime and a King Grimlock... Grimlock was sold for 50% if you buy the Prime... Plus 2 free movie passes. ... Better check your local TRUs to those who don't have either an MP Prime and/or Grimlock.

The US Prowl is stated to be $70 at SDCC. Not sure if I like that price considering one can get it the Japanese version for that much and the bootleg for $40.

Yep, its TRU as well. I don't know. I have Bluestreak but I would like to get Prowl but geez 70 bucks???

 

I might as well buy the Takara version instead of waiting... I was hoping they would in the $50 range...

There is no point in buying these unless you are either a Hasbro fanboy or a completest. I think the only figures that are worth getting if you don't mind the different paint apps are the bigger Masterpiece figures. That Sunstorm is priced way lower than the Japanese version, though I am sure he would have the Starscream accessories. Would ppl start buying the bootlegs because of how overpriced these are?

I rather not have bootlegs in my collection... I do hear good things about them though for half the price...

Same here, although I might have to buy one to replace the right hand for my Takara Tigertracks - my yellow lambor has two left sets of fingers. When it comes to mp, I usually buy the Takara versions unless it is a figure hard to obtain within the normal price range (the seekers), a figure with new accessories (Hot Rod), or figures that haven't been made in the Takara line (Acid Storm, whom I have yet to purchase)

$70 though! Come on Hasbro/TRU, you're not giving us much incentive to buy your product when it's actually cheaper to import one from Japan. At least include the Amazon launchers or something.

 

But uh, not to rain on your parade, GuitarDevil. Congrats on acquiring Prowl. :D

Its cool man I've got an umbrella....I know I could buy it through overseas vendors but for some reason I purchase my MP's through TRU...I guess I like getting gouged or the shiny boxes they come in....its a steep price for a little guy & I passed on the repaint of yet another Decepticon "Henchman"....howsabout a MP ShockWave or Galvatron? or something other than background Starscreams....thanks it's always a struggle here in the valley to find any MP love on the shelves....So far w/all the MP's that have come out.....GrimLock was the only one I ever found at retail....& that was a fluke that happened on my birthday of all things.....
