    It isn't the robo wang poses that are throwing me off about this piece. It's the smokestacks. They just look.....like they're overcompensating. And placed wrong. Otherwise sure, I'd buy that if I was a Prime collector.

    These new pics are making those aspects stand out and grow on me even more. Feels like a nice mix of G1 Prime with Armada cybertronian mode from the flashback scenes, and GF/Cybertron Prime.

    100% on with this. Yes, $40 is more than what I expected from a model kit, but am sure the value will be there. It also seems this comes fully painted.

    edit: just read the description on RK; it's not painted, but seems to be either fully colored plastic or feature specific pieces in color. Also, this is the Attack Mode (?) version. Guess we'll have to await proper specifications.

    I am here for it. I'd love to do more model kits without falling down a Gundam or Frame Arms rabbit hole. I really want Starscream kits so I can do custom seekers, but I'll take a Prime while I wait.

    Transformable or not, this is hands down the most exciting Optimus Prime toy I\'ve seen since MP-10!

    Finally a way to enjoy Gunpla with Transformers! And these would make for great \"action masters\"as well.

    I'm definitely thinking about getting this, though I really want a G1 Optimus model kit. I'd like to see what the sprues are like as well.

    I can see that vibe too. Really just splicing a female anime face onto the heads with some hair and you've practically got a Gundam girl.

    I definitely see the appeal to this, but I think I'm out. $40 for something more IDW would likely hook me as something to have as a desk toy. But that pricepoint doesn't work for me without the nostalgia feels hooking me in.

    Well this has gone from "definite pre-order" to "wait for reviews". Price is a bit too close to the high end for a 6 inch model, and I have enough gunpla on pre-order as is.

    I'm not feeling that bumblebee with the Tonka toys monster truck wheels, but I think I might spring for that starscream.

    That would be the fucking best shit ever! A brilliant narrative with amazing visuals would all come within one of the possibly greatest transformers stories ever told! That is everything I want!

    Maybe I’d actually like panty and stocking then.

    It has a very Masami Obari aesthetic to it, which is great for me since I'm a huge fan of the guy's work.

    It's one of the character designers from Studio Trigger. I think it's the guy who did Gurren Lagann, but I'm not certain. Basically everyone at Trigger is a Transformers fan.
