    I didn't like this one at all starting out but all the changes and the full prototype looks worlds better than the original renders. PMOP is shaping up really nicely.

    It has to go all the way. No Godbomber no sale. I would prefer they come out together because of being a new company.

    And personally I'm glad they'll be separate.

    Ditto. I mean, I WANT their Godbomber, but I don't NEED him and I like being able to space out the purchases or have the option of NOT buying him if I decide to go that way.

    The combined mode looks pretty impressive, (in SPITE of the incessant whining about the feet behind his head, which the G1 definitely had going on, albeit to a lesser extent...), and the base mode is no better or worse than the HasTak versions. So, as far as all of that goes, it's looking better than I expected it would after seeing the initial color renders, of which that blue is horrible, so I'm glad it's looking like they're going with a much deeper shade of blue.

    But...can we actually address the elephant in the room?! No, it isn't the feet behind his head that everyone seems absurdly focused on during this whole time...it's the freaking, honking, ginormously huge FEET hanging off the BACK OF THE PANCAKE FLAT TRAILER!!! Okay, so TWO elephants, but seriously, this isn't a problem for anyone? SERIOUSLY?! COME ON!!!

    I'm sorry, but size aside, the FansHobby vehicle version looks all kinds of "are-you-freaking-kidding-me?" Seriously, the HUGE@$$ FEET just sticking out of the trailer back is even more ridiculous than the Hasbro version...not to mention how insanely FLAT and WIDE looking the trailer is, PLUS all of the hard edges and corners of every angle...but ESPECIALLY those freaking GINORMOUS @$$#d FEET clumped on the back of the trailer...! ALMOST as bad as the Xovergen trailer, which is only worse because it didn't even remotely resemble his trailer to start with, but also DIDN'T bulk him up so much as make him proportionately taller to his regular self...which is NOT how PMOP should look...he's SUPPOSED to be thicker all around, because he's a smaller bot wearing a freaking TRAILER to make himself a MUCH BIGGER, more powerful ARMORED bot, not a proportionately bigger Prime...Xovergen got it WRONG, very VERY WRONG, but FansHobby at least is getting THAT right.

    FansHobby has REALLY, REALLY, GOT to do something about that horribly obvious issue with the vehicle mode all-around!

    Yes, I realize that MOST everyone will predominantly keep him in his awesome combined mode, including me if I decide to buy him, which may greatly depend on whether they deal with fixing the flat, LEGO look, but more importantly, those freaking feet. However, as awesome as that big bot may look, his base mode will sadly outshine his vehicle mode, because of the pancake LEGO flatness and big oversized trailer feet...and let's face it...really and truly, AFTER the big bot mode, it's the TRUCK AND TRAILER alt mode that is most important to 99.9% of fans, NOT the after thought base mode.

    So, how about we discuss THOSE freaking feet, instead of the feet behind his little head in combined mode, for a little while, considering THAT'S literally the bigger problem that needs to be dealt with here.

    Not to belittle anyone else's concerns over important things like the"holy scale" issue or his backpack/foot kibble or anything else of vital importance, but this is clearly an issue that SHOULD be dealt with BEFORE production begins, don't you think?

    Like I said, looks great in combined mode, but the alt mode needs fixing more at this point, not nitpicking over back kibble and going back and forth about scale and screen vs. toy accuracy...I just want an all-around awesome figure if we are planning to drop serious cash on this thing. I'm not wrong here...

    *shrug*

    I'll never transform mine into his alt mode, but I can see what you're saying. To me though, the bot mode (or in this case modes) are the most important thing to me, and in this case I'm extremely happy with this guy.

    As soon as I get this guy out of the box he will be combined into super ginrai to display in all his glory. It's all about the combined bot mode. As a kid I never cared much about the truck mode and I'm just glad it looks decent. The feet that the guy above spent a whole page commenting on actually don't bother me at all. It's supposed to be a futuristic looking vehicle so I can let it stretch my imagination a bit.

    I dont mind the feet. Sure I would prefer if they would just intelock better and not show at all but, the g1 toy had both arms and feet showing so....

    That said, at least this set from the looks of it doesnt need outside companies to make 3 upgrade kits to have it do what its supposed to.

    I completely agree on all points... however, I urge you not to settle :) 
    In the age of "third party" companies we can't afford to settle. Otherwise we encourage Xovergen quality releases.

    I'm sure a super ginrai will be released that meets your standards.

    We need to speak with our wallets. Sometimes that's the only language people understand.
