    Looks like the camo version will be out at the beginning of 2019.

    @ChromeMagnus It feels rock solid. The plastic feels very durable. My only previous experience with TFC was their Sixgun. It's like night and day.

    How solid is that ab crunch? That was the one thing that looked problematic to me as it doesn't seem to be ratcheted.

    But the entire purpose of this design was a camo GI JOE Optimus Prime. Maybe it should include an extra head but definitely still needs the optimus head.

    That's good to know. I was underwhelmed with TFC Hercules (MP sized Devastator/Constructicons) and haven't bought any of their figures since. I just might have to pull the trigger here with TFC Rolling Thunder Optimus. I'll need to pick up some Dia nauts and some Titan Master figures for cheap to further accessorize the alt mode.

    You can also use Spike or the other G1 MP humans.

    The camo looks great! Though, if you look really close at the upper left corner of the chest, is that red underneath? Like they painted over the 'Prime' colored version for those pics? Not that it matters - it looks good! I'd really like to see this mold in Ultra Magnus and Nemesis colors. The irony being that I'd have to buy a color scheme that is second choice to me to support them to get the repaints. It's almost worth it...

    Either way, this looks great all around!

    I'm glad to hear people are enjoying this guy. I'm skipping the red/blue version, but if the quality is good (as it sounds like it is) I'm in for the green one.

    I observed the same thing and I think it's a paint guide/master that TFC has sent the factory. Looks like they just painted over a copy of the normal production version.

    Hmmm, I'd dismissed this due to traditionally not being big on TFC and the price, but I shall admit he looks pretty epic. Very tempted!

    I'm usually a pretty big Prime fan but I'm waiting for the camo colours, it just doesn't look right in primary colours.

    It's a friction joint, right? Is there a locking point for the ab crunch or not?!

    Thank you!
