    I don't like it as it is. The head isn't doing it for me. It doesn't match the movie feel of this mold IMO. The legs/feet aren't great either. However, I haven't seen it in person yet, so I'll reserve my final judgement til then. Also, with a bit of work, and a new head, I see me turning him into Silverbolt for a movie style superion, just because he seems to have plenty of room for connection points on his upperbody, and the legs/feet seem pretty simple to add connection points to as well. Again, I'll have to see it in person to make any final judgement.

    This bot has been growing on me since the first time I saw him. I may have to pick him up.

    I think he NEEDS the pontoon feet or he would topple over due to that massive backpack.

    I dunno, I found this guy yesterday, and he's only so-so in my opinion. The backpack is obviously the most glaring issue, but he also seems kinda simplistic. He could have used a few more points of articulation.... thigh swivels, ankle swivels, or at least a ball-jointed head (since he seems to look best bending forward a bit... but this causes his head to always be looking at the ground).

    I love the red arms and claw hands, though. And the plane mode is nice. I find myself hoping for an "Octane/Tankor" Decepticon repaint (maybe with the teensy Prime repainted as a 'Con truck like Motormaster or Onslaught).

    The mini-Prime is cute, but doesn't fit so smoothly into the bay on mine.

    I thought you were talking about the movie style or something, until I realized "the bay" was the cargo bay.

    Heh heh... not the Michael Bay.

    I still can't get over those blood red arms...Overall, the figure just doesn't do it for me personally. I think the design is a bit bland to be honest.

    The only big issue I have with this guy are his massive pontoon feet. I know he needs large feet to support his massive back kibble...but there had be to a better way to do it. And the incredibly thin ankles just serve to make the feet look larger.

    I like the spring loaded rear bay option. It pops open and out comes a small optimus prime truck!

    i picked this guy up yesterday. his feet are crazy huge but i dig him in bot mode. he looks great in plane mode and it is by far my favorite of the two modes.
