    cool story bro!

    just make sure the box says "Optimus Prime" with a red and blue dude in it and you should be fine. make sure voice chip sounds good, and that, of course, its obviously not 2007 prime

    There maybe Flaws (i haven't seen much and they are very minor )

    But, I Highly recommend you get a TF:ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime "if you do not have one already" even, if they do decide to release for the next movie.:thumb 

    anyway, if you do get him and have "any" problems trying to Transform him, these could help.:confused:

    The red pieces under his "window boobs" that slide up have to be popped out to transform him. It's quite a pain to get out the first time, but I found a trick. Pull them all the way up and pull it out. After that, you can shave a little bit of plastic off the tab. :D

    I've heard that the right foot's ball joint can be loose, but I'm not sure how wide spread it is or how you can watch out for it.

    I'm not into RotF toys but I heard about a "Buster" Prime coming out...
    What is this? and should one wait for that one?

    I'm thinking of building myself a JetPrime for my work desk...

    I have only one suggestion.

    Make sure you have awesomeness-reflective sunglasses on when you unpack him, because if you don't, his awesomeness will blind you.
