    I know that quite a few people are less than thrilled with this release, but personally I can't wait for this guy to come out. My only concern, which has been noted by others, is whether he has knee articulation or not. I haven't seen any pics that confirm one way or the other.

    When he's transformed right, he looks pretty bad ass. I'll get him. I don't doubt he has knees, since all the other ones do.
    The way it's built, it's pretty obvious he has knees.

    Those pics make him look pretty awesome, even if he's in a static pose. I can't wait to get him!

    I'll get him, because he's Optimus Prime. I mean, that is the marketing scheme, ain't it?

    It doesn't look quite as asstastic as some other pics we've seen, but I'm still not impressed.

    I can imagine him having knees, as the truck bed seems to act more like leg guards than legs. Doesn't mean he'll really have them though. Could be Prowl like as well, with the knees (he has them, but body parts make them a pain to use)

    Looks like the arms might be a lot less difficult to transform, similar to Skids' design. Very nice, Hastak did their homework on him.

    Eh... I'm pretty sure the guys got knees. The legs look more like shin-guards than anything... and there's obvious placement for a joint... especially when you look at the back of the figure as shown in one of the other galleries we saw. My only concern is if the engineering will allow them to be used easily or if he'll be like Sideswipe and Sunstreaker... body parts getting in the way... haven't really noticed that with Prowl though.

    Has it been confirmed yet if the Takara Binaltech Optimus is cancelled or not? Thanks in advance.

    Ok, I'll admit that these pics make him look pretty good, but I still don't like the idea of an Alt. Prime. If it were Trailbreaker, I'd be all over it. I really hope it won't be too long before we find out who the remold will be, so that I know if I should just buy one to make into Trailbreaker myself.

    Looks like the "vents" on his upper leg should fold down to cover the shins.

    As it stands, the Takara version so far hasn't been officially "confirmed" to begin with. Anything we heard about Ginrai was apparently premature information. He might or might not come out, but most probably NOT in March.

    Lookin' good...

    I just don't understand why every single person who gets their hands on one denies us a shot of the articulation.

    But still.

    Lookin' good...

    The pic does make him look better. It would be interesting seeing him in person. Bet his 'bot mode is a decent size.
