    If only he was slightly skinnier. Especially upper legs and to a lower degree mid torso.

    This thing may be the first true "perfect" masterpiece figure. To date, FT Stomp has gotten the closest to utter perfection (in my opinion)...but this Optimus looks like it could be the one to transcend all other MPs. I cannot wait for this release.

    Agreed. The V3 Prime will sell because it has TT's name on it. I, however, will possibly get both this and the Transform Element Primes and never touch the gappy, panel ridden mess that is the official.

    On the topic of QC, if their Legends-sized releases are anything to go by, we have nothing to be worried about. Magic Square makes a quality product.

    It certainly wasn't that picture. Camera angle shooting up from the left BOTTOM left corner with the left leg trailing to depict something called WALKING and a heroic stance is not a pelvic thrust. Nothing wrong with dynamic posing. Unrealistic exaggerated pelvic thrusting compensating for a lack of stability is something I have only seen from posing prototypes. In case you missed it the pelvic thrust enabled the back to be curved more parallel to the legs when the chest was bent forward to compensate for the thrust. This hid potential back heaviness that might not be supported. Right or wrong, the figures are designed and posed to depict human like qualities. Where did all those dynamic poses come from, really? We are not all trying to do some exotic butt exercises.

    Nice ab crunch from the video. I like the sculpted details throughout the body.

    Megatron must be stopped, no matter the cost to our hip joints.

    Don't they only have one mould out - Inferno/Grapple?

    I mean I've heard great things and their lineup sure looks promising.

    I have Inferno, Grapple, Sideswipe, Seaspray and Beachcomber from them. All absolutely fantastic figures with topnotch quality. Not an issue with any of them.

    Smokestacks are there, just not attached. I don't speak their language so no idea if it's deliberate parts forming or they just haven't been permanently attached to this test/prototype.
    I think the issue with the matrix is it's just silver chrome - they skipped the gold. Again, no idea if that's deliberate or a result of an unfinished test shot.
    Lower legs are big though. Probably a resut of hiding wheels and fuel tanks.
    It's amazingly clean looking, especially from the rear.

    Yeah, I saw the base pieces to attach the smokestacks to, but I wanted to see what it looks like with the smokestacks attached.

    Aah, yeah, I get ya' now.
    It's around 3:20 in the video when they pick one up and kind of hold it next to the arm and try to put it on but it doesn't really stay there and it's not the best angle.
    Also, no idea whether the stacks compress at all.
    Judging from the grey proto images on the front page, they do look longer in alt mode.
    And there are proto images with the stacks being flat and with the tops being angled - the blurry shots from the video look like the chromed ones here are flat on the tips.
    Hopefully if this is a painted test shot and not just a coloured prototype, we may see samples going out to chinese reviewer's in the next few weeks?

    It's definitely been an insanely fast turnaround time on this.

    Can't believe that I thought the V2 Prime was flawless at one point! It looks really dated now, and this figure (and Takara's new V3 Prime) makes you realise that. I still like V2 Prime a lot though.
