    I think he looks "alright" because he's hidden behind everyone else.

    top notch stop-motion animation, though.

    I REALLY hope the US gets those Minicons in some way, shape, or form. Even blind bags would be fine.

    WTF? Since when is he "Optimus Prime" over there? That saddens me for some reason.

    Sweet commercial, though.

    Since... 2007? I think the first movie is where it started and continued with Animated and Prime.

    Like how prime name use to be ''convoy'' in the Japanese version. I guess Optimus Prime is now universal.

    You serious? All American made Transformers shows/movies/games whatever (brought to Japan) call the Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. This has been going on for quite a while now, since the Hollywood movies, and continues still.

    God dammit, why can't our commercials be that cool? That actually makes me want to buy those guys more than I wanted to.

    You know something's wrong when the toy's stop motion transformation is smoother and better looking than the stock animation on the show.

    Clearly, you've missed the news since the Takara-Tomy versions were first announced quite a while ago...
