PRID Bulkhead's weapon should not have been made... ever. It sucks. Period.

 

At the very least the DOTM Mech tech weapons looked a bit more like weapons. these TFP voyagers with mech tech tec weapons,look horrible.

 

I prefer the TFP FE Voyager Bulkhead weapon better then the TFP Rid bulkhead mech tech weapon.

Robot Kingdom reported on their Facebook page that there are KOs of the Jetwing and Striker Optimus accessories available, but that they won't carry them:

Beware of KO in the market! Leader Class Optimus Prime Equipment

 

If they're not too expensive I'd like to get those and not have to buy another leader Optimus. I've put a lot of time and effort into the one I own now, and I plan on getting his Reprolabel set as soon as it's available as well:

M33 - ROTF Leader Optimus Prime Created by Justin Goguen

 

If someone finds where to get these PM me. While I will probably pick up the Amazon exclusive, I would love to get an extra set of those accessories.

Wow,thanks for this news & links. I too would rather buy these KO accesories.

 

I've got to wonder. will these KO accessories properly peg into the ROTF Leader optimus. didn't Takara remold the Rotf leader optimus with new pegs & slots in order to attach these newer jetwing & striker accessories to the ROTF leader Optimus toy.

 

As far as the Amazon Jetwing optimus exclusive colors goes. I'm not a fan of the seeker/trailer stripes on the jet wings. I don't like the golden/brown colored rockers. I think the takara colors look better.

That's a lot better looking than the plain plastic that was used by Takara-Tomy.

 

seriously. -buyers remorse of Takara's version kicking in-

 

I went ahead and bought this one. I love the colors.

 

I'm not suffering from Buyers remorse, but I will be getting this new deco to go along with my Takara one

I just don't think I can justify paying over twice as much as what that OP used to cost for this guy

 

He's awesome and all, but man...that price...and i already have ROTF leader prime too....

Mine is still MISB. Will more than likely stay that way now. THis new set will get shelf space. looks like i'm going to have to get new sets and sell more of my old media.

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
