    At first glance of this figure, I was kinda interested and thought it was cool that a new 3rd party company decided to do a full fledged stand alone Transformer based on the Hearts of Steel design of Prime. Didn't really want to buy it before, but after seeing the review, I'm considering it. Thoughts?

    This figure looks spectacular but, while I'm certainly tempted, I'm going to hold off for a while as I just bought Warbot Defender, have the Crossfire sets on preorder, and I can't really think of a place where this could fit in my collection. Not as another Optimus Prime, at least. If they did a Nemesis version down the road I might consider it...

    I'm super excited about this figure. I think it's gonna look great on an Optimus Prime shelf. I love all of the G1 homeages it has packed into the figure. All and all, I think it's gonna be a popular figure.

    After seeing the review, even more excited about the fact that this Knight Morpher Prime will soon be arriving from TFSource. I really like the Hearts of Steel TPB. I wouldn't mind a HOS Bumblebee as well.

    I'm worry about the shoulder parts. They seemed to be the weakest part of the toy.

    Agreed. Very cool designs. Wouldn't mind an entire line of these, as most of the designs are very, very cool.

    Especially Shockwave ;)

    didnt like it much before the review, and now after the review, it's a big, big "NO". too simple, not detailed enough, odd proportions, and too expensive when taking those two things into consideration.

    Really glad I ordered it. Can't wait for it's arrival on Wednesday! It has a kind of simple transformation though.

    Got this today and it's awesome! The transformation isn't super involved, but it's enough to be interesting...and I enjoy complex transformations. There's a lot of G1 inspiration to it as well. Good quality, great paint job...I love it.

    I love the design but loathe the shield piece. It's entirely silly, though it can be overlooked for an otherwise impressive looking representation of Optimus Prime.

    I think it looks pretty cool, but it's too much $.
