I think I like the one you linked better too, by a far greater margin. The other one is too blingy and boxy... and I do really like the ROTF/DOTM design over the new AOE one, and Voyager Battle Blades Prime is a really great figure to justify replacing that quickly.

See I like the back kibble and alt mode of that one WAAAY Better. But I also like the chrome on the First Edition, hate the kibble, alt mode is ok.

Tough choice... overall though the one you linked is better and since I can pay cold hard cash for it in a store and not have to break out the credit card for Amazon... The normal Leader is the one I think'll go for. I skipped the DOTM line except one of the black SUVs... which I can't find anymore. So I want to get back into collecting again. been over 4 years since I bought one full price maybe even 5 and that was from ROTF.

YouTube reviewer "Optibotimus" (the one with the really whiny voice and a trillion jump cuts in every video) has posted a review of the FE Prime.

It's a giant shellformer!

Yeah... passing on this one, for sure.

Hopefully some of the other TF4 figures will be a bit more involved. The transformation has been simplified, but at the expense of a giant backpack and half a truck cab hanging off the back of his legs. Not good.

Yeah... Not really impressed with either so far... I would maybe be tempted by one if the chrome was consistent, but the mix with grey plastic looks pretty poor. Not enough to over-ride the shellformer aspects!

Yeah after watching reviews of the first edition... I'm passing on it.

The alt mode is awesome but it's just too cheaply made and too simple for my $60. and that backpack... NO...

Let's hope we get better figures than this from the AOE line...

From the reviews it seems like I should track down the ROTF Prime, as that's what I REALLY want out of a Leader figure.
