    Add s&h JediTricks, because you can't just walk into an American discount store and buy him (though some comic shops might carry him).

    Anyway,

    Find out what Transformer are you?

    This just in:

    BinalTech to make an invisible Mirage figure.

    I'm not sure this should be a joke - but it's not. The Alternator Mirage will be re-issued completely "clear" so the Transformer appears invisible or using his cloaking device that was so much a part of his G1 character.

    Takara seems to be taking a page from Hasbro with its blue holo and ghost figures that they need not worry about paying for paint applications on. Instead, this time they are molding a Transformer completely paintless.

    It might be interesting and although Mirage is my favorite mold / car / figure 'bot in the line to this date (yes, having articulation superceedes Ravage), I'm not really in the market for an "invisible one." BinalTechs are not sold in the United States anyway, so this would have to be special ordered.
    On top of that, all Alternators are nearly invisible in American stores anyway.

    I totally forgot about that G2 Minicar Prime so my objection is busted. No Jet Prime's that I can remember though!

    If I were to buy a movie Optimus Prime figure, it looks like it would be the voyager sized one at this point.

    Looks tons better than the leader one.

    I agree, especially since this is the one without the giant battery pack in the back. I think this is the Prime that I cared for back at the time when we were looking at the prototypes.

    That has nothing to do with the actual price though, I was saying Ultimate Bumblebee at $90 is the most expensive Transformer ever, and that's still true as far as I know - import fees and middleman issues are not part of the figure's original cost.

    Takara seems to be taking a page from Hasbro with its blue holo and ghost figures that they need not worry about paying for paint applications on. Instead, this time they are molding a Transformer completely paintless.
    Actually, Takara (now TOMY) has been doing "crystal" variants of Transformers for over 10 years now, that came first.

    It might be interesting and although Mirage is my favorite mold / car / figure 'bot in the line to this date (yes, having articulation superceedes Ravage), I'm not really in the market for an "invisible one."

    I'm tempted but will wait to see how it turns out, I like this mold and I think it could make a great clear version, but without panache it could make a really poor one.

    I thought so too, then I saw this extended album and the figure is so much kibble backpack and such a fugly head that I lost any slight interest: http://tformers.com/ig.php?mode=albu...ze=800&start=0

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Uggggh! It's like every time I find something I like about this new movie (the new TV trailer), I find something that doesn't sit right with me. The kibble on this toy for example.

    Alt Ravage has NOTHING on this guy, JT.

    I just noticed, looks like that Voyager Optimus' fingers can't close: http://tformers.com/ig.php?mode=view...e=800&start=20
    8th strike, you're out!

    This has to be the longest kibble backpack I've ever seen on a TF, it's twice as thick as the regular bot part:

    I didn't notice the driver (hologram?) behind the wheel until now, that's an odd one, looks like he flips up to disappear when the door is opened: http://tformers.com/ig.php?mode=view...ze=800&start=0

    He does look weird when viewed from the side, but I still kinda like it. I don't know if I will get it though.

    New Question:

    If the Autobots were real, which character would you be closest friends with?

    I'm going to say I'd be likely to hang out with Wheeljack.
