    I got Leader Class Optimus and Megatron yesterday and I think people are a little exaggerating on the transformation for him. I mean once you know where everything goes he's perfect. I can transform him back into truck mode in atleasr 7 minutes.

    7 minutes is a lot considering most figures do it in like under 1 minute

    I would say a minute. My Deluxe 07 Camaro Concept Bumblebee is a pain in the ass, and in vehicle mode he holds together like a piece of shit. I'm definetley getting the new Bumblebee figure.

    It does take ages to get Leader Optimus transformed. When I was showing him to my cousins yesterday, it took me at least 10 minutes to get him in robot mode.

    The biggest issue I have with Optimus is that my wife will not allow him in bed with us.

    my preview one don't hold together half as good as my original movie bb. the plastic feels really cheap too, almost like a ko

    if you think this transformation is hard, go transform trans-scanning op, big convoy, or mp megatron. rotf prime is a gobot compared to those (at least i know he is compared to tsop). his transformation isn't hard, just long (hmm bad choice of words there)

    Yes. Don't let people scare the shit out of you. Once you transform him the first time, it's pretty easy to do there on forward.

    I agree, it's really not that hard or as time consuming as some people have made it out to be. The transformation might take a LITTLE longer than your average TF, but not much longer. Besides it's a pretty fun transformation.

    I figured it out pretty easily my first time. What took over an hour was trying to get his hood, windows, and wheels all to line up and stay.

    It's not really too hard, just challenging to execute. After your first time it should be much easier.

    I just feel sorry for the little kids that are going to get Prime, and will never be able to transform him without help from their parents. For me, it isn't the fact that he is extremely difficult to transform, but it is the fact that he is not a fun transformer to transform.

    The most difficult part of transforming him is trying to follow the garbage instructions Hasbro packaged with him. Once I tossed those and watched a video, it was easy as pie.

    IMO, Leader Op is certainly easier than MP Megatron, but much more difficult than most other "Leader" molds (Isn't Leader Megatron kind of sad?). I'd say Prime is doing extra transforming to make up for Universe Silverbolt!

    I feel for whoever makes the instructions. Trying to represent 3d parts moving around in a 2d way that a 5 year old can understand? That's a pretty tall order.

    Simple solution:

    1.) Divorce her

    2.) Marry Prime

    LOL... kids will have a better shot than me. He's in robot mode, the old version in vehicle mode. Staying that way too, I'm too old for this puzzleformer stuff. lol
