    Most US-based retailers tend not to carry straight KO items, even the higher-quality ones.

    My copy came in the mail the other day. It has impressive engineering upgrades and the visual finish is nice, but the knees are super floppy and the rocket pack spins like a pinwheel in any transformation besides robot mode. I also can't get the right leg to collapse as much as the left for gorilla mode those joints are inexplicably asymmetrical. All the ratchet joints are good though. 90% of what disappoints me can be fixed with some pledge+future floor polish, but I still feel like I paid too much. Not sure why you'd bother with all that slick new engineering and then skimp on QC.

    Sooooo... what- 12 minutes of "what is this" , "who is this for?", and "I don't get it" ?

    Ok.

    How about an actual review of the figure?

    Are the articulated hands a separate kit or they're planning a 2.0 Optimal Optimus?

    It would be nice if some stores stocked these. They're not even on eBay, for Pete sake.
