    people who dont own him like to say he sucks, but in reality hes a very cool figure thats actually incredibly fun to mess with. he is very posable and has a ton of character.

    i recommend him, but its up to you.

    check out the feedback thread for more in depth stuff

    He is accurate to the video game model as far as I can tell. The only reason why people don't like him is because of his design for FOC. So yeah, as the final verdict it is really up to you, your money. Just like Emgo said!

    As someone who owns him, the War figure is SOOO much better.

    I do want him and Jazz, but I know they will shelfwarm till clearance because they are already an abundance of them, and they are also in wave 2.

    I think he's really cool and a lot of fun to pose and transform. His vehicle mode is great too! However, FoC Prime is on the small side and doesn't have as much detail as the WFC version.
    If you are choosing one over the other, I would say WFC is better. But if you are just wondering if FoC Prime is a good figure, then Yes, he's a fun figure and you will probably enjoy it :)

    Don't get me wrong, I think the design of Optimus is neat, but oddly enough, not as Optimus.
    A custom character perhaps, or something from the comics.

    I personally think the plastic on them feels cheap.
    The design is lacking a bit too.
    You can see the obvious cost cutting measures taken to trim down the production.

    Paying voyager price for a scout class toy is the sign of the times I guess.
    If you like the design, then by all means pick em up, but don't be too surprised when you find yourself wishing you got what you payed for.

    Jazz isn't perfect but I think would have made the same choice. Shockwave is the winner, then Jazz and Optimus gets the bronze.

    I saw him earlier today and I refused to pay $15 for him. Jazz seemed like a better figure so does Shockwave.

    WFC Prime is superior in every way, which is why I have no intentions on getting FoC Prime at the moment (if ever).
