    Well if it is a full integrated kit in both modes I'll buy it.

    If it is just another partsformer crap I'll pass...

    Hm. Interesting. If they can add some new feet and a G1 style head, I could buy it. That doesn't mean I won't buy this IF this doesn't have it.

    Yep, exactly that, if they can add better feet to improve the cheap plastic look of the current one, I'd be all in on this kit...

    Not gonna lie, the only reason I bought CW prime was because I knew someone was gonna make a kit like this. It looks great, but I hope there's minimal partsforming involved.

    Wow. This actually looks pretty nice. I'll wait to see how this ultimately turns out. Don't really want a partsforming Optimus to be honest. If it's mostly integrated, I'm down.

    They could grab a lot more interest if they could prove it's not partsforming, asap...

    But I doubt that's the case.

    Agreed, but this is straight up plagiarism. That is LITERALLY the same design. They STOLE it, JUST like they did with Nightbeat!

    Are you being sarcastic? It's similar (holy shit, two guys basing their design on the same thing happen to be similar!? Who woulda thunk!) but the sculpting isn't a copy of the shapeways kit. There are even some parts I don't see on the shapeways kit.

    I remember people were crying the same way just because some other 3P also did FOC upgrades that happened to look like Ariel's stuff.
