    Dammit! I kinda want that Orion Pax. I'm going to have to get the leader Prime even though I already have MP-10.

    I own about 50 Ultra Magnus figures.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Put a new head on it then it can be Minimus Ambus, then remold the combined mode chest and BOOM, Minimus/Magnus right there. Or, alteratively you could be a complete anarchist and repaint the entire thing white so white cab Magnus may rise again


    Or do Nemesis Prime, who desperately needs a new figure of is the perfect choice.

    Swoop is blue here, but the official art shows him red. Interesting... Could it be a Takara version, an exclusive, or perhaps an issue similar to CW Brawl (Art is dark green, figure is more of a brown.).

    Really I can see it. It would need an all new trailer and some extensive retooling on the small robot mode, but...

    ...they turned a lion into a lion!

    Dammit, that's the nicest looking Classicsverse Optimus ever. Might actually have to get it.

    I appreciate what they're attempting to do with with the leader class in this line, but it seems like they're making some serious compromises to keep them within the standard price point. Poor Optimus had potential, but his vehicle mode is barely even cohesive, let alone aesthetically pleasing (and ugh, this means the inevitable Ultra Magnus retool is going to suck as well). Rodimus is better, but his fists being completely visible in vehicle mode is a real bummer. I question whether they'll be able to pull off a decent Star Saber or Thunderwing if they can't even get the A-listers right.

    It's a good thing everything else looks so great. For me, I mean - my wallet is in its death knell already.

    My biggest concern with the new Optimus is everything coming out the back of his shoulders/ upper back. It looks like there's a quite a bit of cramming to put the Orion figure in that way...
