    The top of his head really does look kind of dumb in his boxart :lol 

    Surprised the box isn't plastered with "INCLUDING MINI OPTIMUS PRIME FIGURE!"

    Indeed looks like they dropped the shuttle on top.

    Hmmm.....it's really a shame about the shuttle being dropped. I think I'd rather have that than that silly looking Prime.

    Man, I'm such a sucker. Even though I actualyl like the Stratobot toy itself, I would have bought almost anything that includes that mini Prime. That's just great.

    This might have had a chance of being a neat figure if it weren't for the gimmick. The inclusion of the mini-Optimus is (presumably) the reason the mini-shuttle was dropped, and the need for space to store/launch the mini-figure gives it a huge backpack. I'll need to see some more pictures and maybe look at it in store, but this is probably a pass.

    Alt mode nice but a horrid robo mode.

    Utterly shameful on takara/hasbro for allowing such garbage out, thats is amongst the most hideous transformers ever designed, ultimately I imagine the 'blame' lies with the original film deigner of this character so the toy designer can be forgiven.

    "Rare"? Only for a couple of months, dude. The space shuttle was it's only redeeming quality. Pass.

    He's probably Wave 4 considering Wave 3 is Mix and Megatron.

    Which means...

    Can we get some co-sell pics plz?

    It's rare NOW, at the time of the auction, and will probably be for the next few weeks/months until the release. Get it? :)
