    Looks good to me. Definitely average size for a Deluxe class figure. It's nice to see that the arms attach a bit more normally to his torso than originally thought. Almost looks as though you could attach a trailer to him in alt-mode. Not sure I'll get him, but he's definitely a possibility. It's odd, but the repaint of Mudflap's Mechtech weapon actually works decently well for Prime's gun. Should be interesting to see what Peaugh thinks of him when he gets him in and reviews him.

    I think this has the best bot mode of all the DoTM Primes. I love the painted grill in truck mode, even ultimate prime doesn't have that.

    I was considering getting this until I saw the pictures. He looks bad. Too much white, and is it just me, or do his feet look huge?

    Love the way this guy looks & agree it's one of the better OP bot modes yet for this movie (still like Takara's voyager, but this is much more ideal), just wish I knew why OP was always ready to go backpacking through Cybertron...

    He looks a bit.... elongated in both modes.
    I dont like his upper body at all, its like the designers are trying to gobot-ise him.

    For a deluxe, Optimus looks good, in someways better than the non-armored Ultimate version. Shame that the weapon looks very meh, but a few touch ups of paint apps and that will look really nice.

    Comes very close to putting the FAB-ish DOTM voyager version to shame...only the weapon prevents this.

    Sculpt is great. Paint and color could be a lot better but I'll buy it. Wonder which mech tech weapons would look best on him.

    ^ I like his vehicle mode scale with many of the movie formers, actually. Especially 'cons.

    I'm quite impressed by his vehicle mode. His robot mode is ok, but considering their first couple of stabs at this design were very meh, I give them props. The arms are probably the bit I like the least.

    I like it. If it becomes available over here with a trailer, I'd lean towards that. If not, I'll pick this up.

    Not bad, but I think I'm going to get Voyager Prime as my deffinative DOTM Prime.

    What the hell does that even mean?

    I think the paintjob's the main problem, other that that, props to hasbro for a nicely done vehicle mode and non faux window chest in robot :thumbs2:

    Not the best Deluxe ive seen but i do like the design.

    I def wanna see how he looks in person before i purchase.

    But more than likely chalk this up as another addition to the collection :)
