    Ooo.. if the vehicle mode is clean and solid (sorry hybrid prime, you will never grace my legends display...), We'll have a winner!

    Looks nice. This is definitely a step up from the previous teasers they've given us but come on: show the thing from more angles and give us the alt mode too. There's still not enough info to know if this guy is gonna be worth it.

    Looking promising so far; but yeah a little skinny. Maybe just because he's a prototype?
    I don't expect MP quality from MechPlanet so as long as the semi mode is good and price is in line with their previous releases I expect I will add him my collection.

    This is definitely going to be that.

    Trailer is probably the easiest part, but it's the part I really excited about. I just want to roll these guys out of the back of Prime's trailer. I hope Mech Planet has a Megatron in the works; the GT and DX9 don't seem like they will work so well with this guy.

    Yeah looks good, i am happy to have passed on various others legends optimusPs for this guy.
    I was very happy with robotmasters convoy/optimus but of course there are certain flaws with that figure, namely the alt isn't quite there. This going by form should be far more complete.

    If i was to nit pick, the waist might be a little narrow - could be wider like the robotmasters which is actually really wide. That is something i don't like on a few figures, like dx9 legends megatron which mft are KOing. Little waists, they should go together...

    Other than that it seems good, good height too. (Edit: although do think alt will be quite small in comparison to the van bros, perhaps could be wider allround)(edit2: scrap that he is good)

    Looks like it might look a little odd from the side/back - the waist doesnt seem to go very far back compared to the upper part of the torso.

    In general though, the sculpt seems a real step up, compared to their Soundwave, say.

    I wonder if the head folds into chest instead of the back.

    This is giving me a real THS-02 Hybrid Style Optimus vibe, except a bit bigger and more solid. I hope the truck mode looks better than THS-02s.

    I am still trying figure out where the wheels are. He is very cool so far. Do wonder what little g1 nuggets they managed to include in him, like him look at the arm panel, maybe there is a little something they included in the chest...

    A matrix would be a nice touch; they definately included a ton of goodies with Ratchet and Ironhide.

    My god he looks so much better than gen toys version !!
    Even if the back is hollow or whatever, just that front and 3/4 view, just wow !!!
    Not to mention, it is so far the only transformable version to have the cartoon accurate hip-crotch yellow panelling done correctly. One big triangular piece flowed by 2 smaller pieces each side !!! Awesome !!!
