For me, it's rarely about the deco. I'd have gleefully snapped up the figure I mentioned at my first opportunity, despite it being Yet Another Optimus Prime and not one I'd have prominent in my collection. Thing is, I'm strapped for cash, and the place I saw him at charged more than I'd find him for elsewhere.
Now, it's pretty much a case of me crossing my fingers and hoping that the same mold gets a repaint as someone else down the line (ideally not Ultra Magnus or Scourge, however). Aside from it being a totally different character, he might actually be affordable.

I am almost always privy to get the first version of a mold as soon as possible
