    I'm sorry if this has been said before but holy cow is FoC Optimus small. I finally found one and picked it up, I like the overall figure except that he's kind of short. I feel like he should be getting a voyager class figure, like Soundwave. Anyone thinking this? Again, sorry if there's a thread about this, it was on my mind.

    inb4 OMG OP YOU'RE BEATING A DEAD HORSE STOP COMPLAINING UGHHH DEAL WITH IT

    Anyways, yes, he's small. That's why I'd rather use WFC Optimus. Looks way better with the rest of the WFC/FoC figures.

    You obviously missed the post before yours lol

    Yes he is small, and it has been discussed in full many times over. Don't be aoffended if some people come into the thread with a slightly aggressive attitude. It is nothing at all personal, just people getting irritated by a over discussed topic, by both forgivers, and people who say all the new stuff is crap and "hasblow should learn from 3rd parties!".

    Personally, I don't have him in had yet, but I find his look very clean and very nice. Should it matter if he's slightly smaller? Plus, isn't it mostly his vehicle that is small but he grows into a average bot?

    He does looks small, but IDGAF, I want this guy. I do hope, however, there will be a Voyager mold of this guy. Why a Voyager mold of Grimlock and fuckin SOUNDWAVE of all characters, and no Voyager Prime. Makes no sense.

    For me, size was never the only benchmark of quality, so I don't give a crap about him being small. From what I've seen, he looks pretty clean in both modes and highly poseable, and I put more value in those things than size.

    I like your spin on things.

    Cause Grimlock is a massive mofo and Soundwave needed to be bigger for the disc gimmick. Optimus actually doesn't look all that much bigger/taller than most of the other Autobots in the game anyway.

    Which only makes WFC Optimus even better cause he's taller than the smaller FoC figures and will still be smaller than Grimlock.

    Small is not the problem for me on this one. I saw it in TRU and it looks to me like a cheezey version of WFC Prime. Pass.

    Size hasn't really been an issue for me. He's a really fun figure. His simple transformation and good amount of articulation make me like him a bit more than WFC Prime.
    But i'm sure i'm in a minority on that one. :lol

    No, it's because the economy is shit. But not to go into possible political stuff.

    And I think everyone who owns this toy has complained about that. (And half of them have made threads about it)

    Being smaller isn't a problem because I probably won't be buying him for anywhere close to MSRP.

    If there is one thing I've learned, it's that BBTS has no problem dropping Bumblebees and Primes to dirt cheap prices, especially if they keep showing up in large numbers in wave after wave. Considering he's not a popular figure, I'd imagine this guy will start to clearance right around the time Wave 2 starts hitting.

    I have no problem with the figure other than his size. He has a great transformation and I like how you can pose him in a bunch of different ways. Sorry again if I'm beating a dead horse, and thanks to everyone who was nice about sharing their ideas on the figure.

    Not having him in hand, it's when I see him posed next to WfC Prime that I really see how tiny he is.

    If anything, throw some personal canon into it and say FoC Prime is Orion Pax, and that WfC Prime is his powered up "Prime" mode.

    I already have a WFC prime, but I may pick up FoC Prime and use him as Orion Pax.

    Something that's been bugging me about FOC Prime since picking it up is that his hands are far bigger than his head. The stumpy alt. mode is alright I suppose, but those gorilla hands... hey, wait a minute...

    That ain't 'Bendy' prime, my friend. You want the smaller deluxe one.
