    Because FT has people waiting on stuff they pre-ordered years ago. For example, just recently their Blitzwing, which was announced over two years ago, has been pushed back indefinitely after months of delays. With all the stuff they have up for pre-order missing release dates -or even having a release date- you can't blame people for calling FT out. In other words, playing hard capitalism doesn't get you a free "get out jackass land" card.

    And back OT; if the transformation is half as nice looking as the UT, I'm in.

    Honestly, I'll take First Edition AoE Prime over that thing.

    He may have looked like he carried the rest of the Autobots on his back, but at least he could transform pose without falling apart and breaking.

    Honestly, if there were a way to somehow get a hybrid of FE Prime and Calibur Prime working, I think we'd pretty much have a decent definitive leader class retail version of Knight Prime. Something like the top half of FE with the legs from Calibur with a rework of the back kibble to do something.

    Kinda surprising nothing else was really done with the FE considering it's technically more accurate in terms of proportions compared to the AoE leader.

    I like a lot of what they're doing with this Prime, but looks like he will have bigger panels on his back, and his butt isn't going to b as accurate to the CGI as Challenger's is. Definitely picking this guy at some point in time!!

    The guy below says that rather than actually being Black Mamba it was a freelancer who was allowed to use Black Mamba's spare display space. If correct (I don't know him to judge his level of knowledge) it would be similar to Garatron Thunderwing being displayed with TFC stuff partly because there wasn't enough Garatron to give them a dedicated display. There are people still assume Garatron is TFC due to that.

    Toy World's "New Plan"
    General consensus is Transmetal Cheetor. It's a little stylised and "edgier" but the details fit. If you look at the hands/wrists/forearms you can even kind of see how they'll fit together to form the cat head.
    The proportions are a little off - the torso needs to be about 15% larger or the hip and legs 15% smaller. But otherwise it's pretty nice. Still pretty early on though

    I think the look of TW Optimus Overall is very good. Face Looks also very good.
    BUT....as many said:

    1) I also can not unsee these Popeye Forearms
    2) The Waist / Hip Looks VERY VERY Strange and thin

    The thin Waist seems if it could break easily.

    I will watch this Optimus Progress...but i think UT will be the Winner for a VERY long time.

    Is this Fans Toys Optimus a real Project or Fake?
    I have also heard that Fanstoys wants to do Optimus, but many say
    it is Fake, because FT never does Movie Toys, only G1 Figures.

    Took some work (and parts from both versions)- but I'm very fond of him.

    I don't know dude, for me that Optimus design actually has Popeye arms and a narrow waist, the V shaped abdomen is more organic, much more than UT's; not like two boxes in top of each other, HOWEVER the alt mode is where UT is vastly superior. I really really hope they can improve the vehicle.

    It is. You can't seem him that well, but that's on OS Grimlock repainted over Prime's other shoulder. I'm hoping the OS Scorn coming is big enough to fit with these two as well.

    The details and general build seem awesome in bot mode, but the proportions are still off in some key areas: The hands are too small, the elbows are too low down, and the worst thing is the shoulder pads are puny. However the flaws you listed on Challenger are not wrong. He is a little boxy especially in the waist area. I will reserve judgement for when this guy is further along. I have no problem with buying both and selling whichever is the lesser figure.
