    Looks like they're trying to match the Classics style. I guess that confirms the blue gun and short stacks.

    Wow... no chrome, blue gun and short smoke stacks!

    (or I could be wrong, but it really looks like silver paint in place of chrome in those pics.)

    I'm just glad about a few things now:
    -It does indeed have a matrix with it, but the calibur of its shiny-ness is up to speculation.
    -His leg shutters do open and close

    This is great, for me, since I didn't snatch it up the first time around, albeit it is now less heavy-looking and the spiffy corking shine is gone.

    Blue gun...? What...?

    Very pleased with my grey gun first-run 20th Prime, now. :)

    Well you could get custom full stacks, but the grill and the gas tanks would still be a dull gray. Maybe someone will make dull gray full stacks.

    I really dig the shiny chrome on my 20th Prime...Not sure how I would feel if I did not own one prior to this release.

    Is this the official final product?

    I'm hoping that the lack of chrome means slightly less expensive. At the moment, even with the packaged in movie, that thing isn't worth $80 after being neutered in so many ways.

    I like to consider myself a patient and understanding person, who is open minded, and is slow to anger.... but....
    WHAT THE FARK IS GOING ON ?!?!?!?!
    I thought we were promised long stacks.... and WHY IS THE GUN BLUE!?!?!?!?!? Optimus Prime has never had a blue gun in the entire history of transformers, why change things now?!?! THIS IS STo_O PID! I was looking forward to this figure, but now I'll probably just sell this one, keep the stand, and use it for my old 20th Prime.
    Although, I must admit that toyfare magazine was funny when the caption read "You can see my nipples through my windshield." that was truly classic.

    The original prototype (the image I first saw) did have longstacks. Many prototype images that leaked a few weeks ago show him with longstacks.

    However, after I released the news, one of those anonymous Hasbro guys that you all claim I don't really know let me know that, unfortunately, it was small stacks again.

    As for the yellow and the blue? You have to release it with ENOUGH differences from the first version. And the first version didn't sell very well. So you change it up enough to make it different.

    And, also, RIP "Transformers" logo from RID to Cybertron. Looks like "Classics" is the new packaging lettering.

    EDIT: And before everyone takes that as gospel, that's my own conclusion, not any "source" conclusion. It's just not shown in any upcoming releases, save the remaining Cybertron toys.

    You know. Optimus Prime is the truth of all truth. The thing that philosophers have debated and thought about for millenia. All of history, sociology, and technology finds it's fulfillment in Optimus Prime. DUH!
