Btw, it does the same sound as the regular version in truck mode.

For those wondering, the following parts are now silver:
-rims
-front grill
-upper legs
-crotch/waist
-inner chest grill
-the 2 parts above the chest windows (like the regular version)
-face (like the regular version)
-the 2 little flaps on the shoulders
-the 2 big reservoirs (battery compartments?) and the 2 smaller ones in truck mode
-base of the smokestacks
-the 2 pivots further down on the smokestacks

Also, the sword unit can easily be popped off if you prefer a cleaner truck mode.

Thanks for the vid, Pascal.

Just wondering, is there a tutorial that exists to mod the chest lights to blue? Also good to know that there's more silver, although the ears still look like a bunny to me (Just in time for Easter too!).

Very nice review.

not sure if the sword warrants another $70 optimus...but if I did't have the first one I would certainly get it.

Oddly enough, I imported this Prime from Hong Kong with Salvage... for less than retail, even after shipping.

Prime is standing next to me right now with sword deployed... With just a new head and weapon, it totally looks like a new bot now.

They already released Best Buy Ratchet and voy. Megs, and Target robo vision prime, which they decided to include in premium series.

I like the paint, the new sound and the sword. I'm not really feeling the head, but I like that we get a new one at least. I have 2 x regular version, and 1 x Nightwatch. I don't really know if I want 4 of leader Prime, but this one is cool enough for me to at least consider it. Thanks for the vid man:)

Deciding to get this one will be a no-brainer for me, if it weren't for my parents knowing that I have the original one. Same case for the rest of the series minus Megs and Starscream.

I like it, but it doesn't warrant a second purchase if you own the first one. Chrome would have done that.

What is the release on this? I want one but will it come out in regular retail (Zellers and TRU)? Any dates?
Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review.

Mass retail, and it seems other premiums are popping up in the US now.
