WING SABER TOYZ SPECIAL: -DVD EXCLUSIVE- AMAZON JAPAN REVENGE OF THE FALLEN BLACK OPTIMUS PRIME!



HEY THERE PEOPLES! IT'S GETTING PRETTY LATE HERE IN MALAYSIA, BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT I WENT TO COLLECT MY PRIZED POSSESSION TODAY AND TOOK SOME SHOTS OF THE PACKAGE AND TOY. DIDN'T BOTHER TAKING THE COVER FOR THE JAPANESE DVD AS ITS PRETTY STANDARD, JUST LIKE THE REGULAR AMERICAN VERSION.  PICS ARE LOCATED BELOW THE POST! CHEERS! WSX. 



Hey there, peoples!  A very warm welcome once again 
to the uber-blog of yours truly, WSX! Man, this month has been just like one good deal of managing to purchase some of the "grail" or limited items for a much more affordable/ cheaper price and "bargain" than the original crazy-inflated prices!  Truth be told, I was not seriously considering grabbing this Black and Copper repaint of the Revenge of the Fallen Autobot Leader: Optimus Prime. However, once again, some part of me just couldn't resist the temptation of getting  this from the Amazon.Co Japan  website for a deal-busting 44% off the usual price of ¥15,800 (non Blu-Ray DVD price) to a mere ¥8,969! Whoa, this deal was too good to be true. That meant only ONE thing, to grab the best scenario before I missed the rare chance again. LOL! ;-)



DVD EXCLUSIVE JAPAN AMAZON BLACK OPTIMUS:- INTRO


This sexy black incarnation of the regular Leader Class version  was only available and exclusively released for the Japanese market, as one of those uber-promotional campaigns. Takara-tomy also sweetened the "deal" of the Blue-Ray DVD release on the 18th of December 2009; by including an additional "goodie" in the form of a Tsutaya Limited Edition EZ/ Legends Stealth Bumblebee




ROBOT MODE:- BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL



I DIG black repaints. The other plus point is that, Optimus Prime's toy design for the second Transformers live action movie it's in itself very similar and proportionately "accurate" and consistent with the movie's CG-model. Majority of Transformer fans are in total agreement that the dual translucent Blue "Energon" swords accentuate the black and copper-coloured flame patterns on the robot mode. The grey plastic used oh  his feet and mid-section complements the design and makes it look imposing. There are some observers that are complaining that this doesn't make it look "Nemesis Prime" looking. Simple explanation to all those who are always bitching-- it's not INTENDED to be the Decepticon Evil Prime character, which most Black version of the Autobot Leader tends to be associated with!! GET OVER it! I for one am glad that there is a very beautiful black Prime that even existed in the first place! A++



TRUCK-TANKER VEHICLE MODE

Nothing visually stunning, IMHO, but it's just an extension of Prime's robot mode. It would have been more appealing if the makers has added some chrome or more silver paint applications on the front and gas-tank areas of the truck. However, the flame patterns does really work well in overall in Prime's truck mode, and it's the saving grace. B+


EZ / LEGENDS "STEALTH" BUMBLEBEE





Fitting that the inclusion of a Tsutaya Japan limited Bumblebee is re-imagined from the "Deluxe-Class" version, and repacked into this DVD exclusive Prime. the level of care and detail put into the face of this tiny black bee is a very neat touch. Hey, nothing's perfect, although they could have also made the window's into a dark translucent plastic colour to make the tiny care-mode look even better! A+



TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN DVD

A solid-action packed movie. Visual effects are top-notch, and some of the climatic battle scenes are well done. IMHO, there are so many haters for Micheal Bay, the director and main person who had a big influence in making this movie. But the whole affair turned out to be one giant heck of a thrill-ride. The robots had personalities. Read: Old codger Jetfire, which was to me, the most fleshed out and most interesting character. A






FINAL THOUGHTS:- 






THE ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED FROM AMAZON JAPAN TO YOURS TRULY WSX, SOMETIME NEXT WEEK, AND IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE EITHER AT THE END OF MAY 2010, OR EARLY JUNE 2010. I THINK OVERALL, ITS A SOLID ADDITION TO EVERY OPTIMUS PRIME FAN, AND OF COURSE, THOSE WHO REALLY DIG BLACK REPAINTS. SOLID-LOOKING ROBOT MODE MAKES UP FOR THE SO-SO TRUCK MODE IN BLACK. DEFINITELY WORTH GETTING AS AMAZON JAPAN IS SHIPPING THIS COOL SPECIAL EDITION TOY AT A VERY AFFORDABLE ¥10,200 PLUS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AND HANDLING! DAMN IT, NOW THAT I THINK OF IT, I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT TWO! A+++
