    Kinda reminds me of Primal Prime for some reason.

    Giant base bot = Awesome. Giant base bot that looks like Optimus Prime = ?????????

    Edit--maybe it was the only way they thought it would sell. Maybe next year, everyone will be Optimus Prime :p  Optimus Bumblebee, Optimus Bulkhead, Optimus Arcee...

    Interesting. I'm bracing for a hate-storm, but I think I'll need to see how this thing works (the city mode, the gimmicks, the articulation) before making a judgement on it. Despite it clearly being Optimus (and not a Fort Max homage as some were predicting) it could potentially end up an interesting toy. And the return of citybots is a good thing no matter what they look like.

    Gonna need base mode pics before I form any sort of opinion. This just looks like a big, bulky Optimus-looking mech.

    Obviously, it's painted up to look like Prime. But the actual mode screams Ultra Magnus to me, for some reason.

    I'm not sure why anyone was expecting this to not be Optimus Prime in design.

    Well.

    That's not at all what I really want in a City/Base bot. Again I understand why they went Optimus, it makes sense for them, but I think it was ultimately unnecissary (and of course, is counter to what I personally want in one of these).

    Even that aside, I don't know that it looks as good as the G1 Citybots design wise, though I'll wait to see the alt mode to decide that.

    Anyway, in the end even an unideal Citybot is still us getting a city bot so... Cool. I'll buy it because it's better than no Citybot and I'm hoping it sells well enough that we get others that are more to my liking.


    ZacWilliam, Not a big fan of the hole filled design, I hope they study up on the g1 city guys before doing any more...
