    The Diamond solicitation is full of LOL. Thanks to D-Drive for the heads-up!

    A Diamond Select Release! Art Asylum design and sculpt! DST's exciting mini-bust line continues to deliver the most iconic and memorable robots-in-disguise from Transformers history! This latest entry to the line depicts the "Power Master" merged version of the bravest and most noble of all the Autobots, Optimus Prime! As depicted in the Transformers: Armada animated series, Power Master Optimus shed his merged form and went on to sacrifice himself to defeat Unicron and save all of mankind. This super-detailed bust and base takes this line to a whole new level of awesome!

    The solicit.

    The solicit.

    You know it's not just the incorrect one, because it starts off right then goes so deliciously wrong.

    :lol

    Very not bad. The edges seem a bit too rounded and I kinda wish his hands were red, but no big deal.

    This bit reads like the description of a 1990's X-men comic. :lolol

    My favorite PowerMaster Optimus memory is the Armada manga where he helped Dinobot and Sky Garry fight the mighty Deceptitron combiner Lockdown. Shit was boss.

    That's one nice looking bust. I've always liked Powermaster Prime. I may have to get me one of these.

    It's cool. They should have bent it a little further behind, and it'd be a nice Jose Delbo homage.

    A nice enough sculpt, but the solicitation copywriter needs to lay off the mushrooms.
