    It's an under-sized KO (INCONCEIVABLE!! :lol ) with the backpack redesigned internally to create the chest-gun gimmick from the show. Some of the pics show the size of it next to MP-10 on the front page.
    Probably some Chinese E-tailer, I'd imagine. Maybe EBay has a few floating around?

    If no Chinese E-Tailer's have him in stock, you may just have to keep looking on EBay until one pops up.

    I have him, it's that set of fully poseable hands I'm looking for.

    I'd like the Primal Prime version too. I can only find orders for Optimal Optimus and the upcomign metallic Optimal Optimus.

    It seems they've put effort to improve qc on this chrome version (compared to the metallic one); well that's what I could translate from their weibo, but maybe someone can provide a proper translation:

    They're doing another one?!
    I wish they would reissue another one with better QC (after what I've heard about the original release). Maybe a reissue would have the fully posable hands already attached?

    Remind me what shops will carry this?

    Does any one have ANY more info on those bloody OPOP hands?! They just announced them, they came on Primal Prime, and then *poof* nothing.

    Is the $59.95 the preorder price for this figure, or is that the total price?

    I was all set to get this guy, till I saw this pic. He's way too small to represent Optimal Optimus in my Optimus collection.

    PE's Optimal isn't accurate, and neither is the crappy Optimal Hasbro put out for POTP. I'll just stick to my original Optimal for now.

    It's sized more in a way to go with G1 MP figures Remember primal was Tiny compared to prime, he had to use jet boosters to get up to Prime's height and Prime was sitting at the time.

    That's true, I forgot about that. I guess I'm just used to seeing my original Optimal standing next to my other Primes. Ok, I'm back on board lol

    I'm watching the review for this, and I'm noticing that the blue shoulder pieces don't seem to rotate up to sit on par with the brown piece his head sits on.

    I looked through the pics and it seems like the shoulders are also lower than they should be.

    Is that the correct positioning for them?

    Does anyone know if the new metallic version comes with the posable hands? And did they add thigh rotation to the mold?
