Do we have a confirmed DPCI for this thing, by any chance?


I second the request for this!

A BIG thanks to Treadshot2.0 for finding this little gem in the Sacramento area! That's where I'm at.

I went to said Target and looked for this thing. They had yet to actually put it out on the shelf and there were no tags on the shelves themselves. I didn't know the DCPI right off, but luckily it was posted in this same thread by RCX. I gave the DCPI to Guest Services and they located 2 of these in the back. They brought both of them out, of which I only bought 1.

While we've received this Deluxe mold of Prime before, I really like the coloring... with the exception of the black hub-caps. But that's not the important part. The reason most of us will buy this thing is the trailer. If you're an Optimus collector like me, then you're going to get this thing. If you don't focus on Optimus, or aren't a completionist, then you can probably skip this one. This thing is pretty... very much a sit on your shelf looking pretty show piece. As a toy, it's not all that functional. It's a hollow, flimsy feeling trailer. And small... can't forget small. I was in shock about the size when the employee handed it to me. I know it's a trailer for a Deluxe fig... but even so... tiny. But... like I said, I collect Optimus figs, so I had to have it.

Here are some pics from my review. To see the rest, please check out my review over at OnePerCase.net.

No surprise, but like the Chronicle version, the trailer can be converted into a display mode for the three semi-inexplicable TF Prime McDonalds toys that were released in Japan last year. You just need to unscrew the bottom portion from underneath and flip the three panels around.

Oddly, the same screw was mashed and unremovable on both my Chronicle and Movie Trilogy versions, and a Japanese review suggests they may all be like that. Taking out the rest gives you enough wiggle room to get all three panels switched, though.

My Chronicle one was like that too. Glad to see it's not just mine.
