    I have to admit, it is kind of strange there hasn't been a peep out of them about it for a while. But then again, Badcube was silent for ages, to the point where it seemed like they had packed it in, and now we have a Sideswipe and Red Alert coming in a couple of months from them.

    Not the Delay itself is the Problem but the way they handle an "Answer" for the Fans that have already paid
    for the Figure.

    Humans are able to SPEAK and WRITE you know.
    So there should not be a Problem to just say

    "Optimus is delayed because of......"
    "We are sorry, the Release is pushed to Month XXXX"
    "We are currently in the Stage of...."

    - Ignore the Rest of the World,
    - not speaking to anyone,
    - Work behind closed Doors
    - and not making Progress on a Figure at all for serveral Months
    > Not a good way to handle things.
    This way to handle things could go wrong some day for a 3rd Party Company

    just saying.

    At this point, I wouldn’t even mind them showing us a picture of just his accesories or something, just ANYTHING would be great

    I'd rather them spend all their time on perfecting the mold than telling people its delayed again. I would be happier to have the next update be progress not disappointing news.

    I'm not feeling it for some reason. Could it be the
    • proportions of the front windows
    • lack of detail/intricacy for the face
    • inaccurate wheels
    Gonna have to be a pass. Sad, but at least the final result looks better than AlienAttack's so far

    Doesn't matter. Interest already gone, have even backed away from the DX9/UT La Hire (though I'm still curious to see how that one turns out)

    Focus shifted back to 1st trilogy now. Hastak is gonna have to work serious magic for me to buy the rumored ROTF MPM that is incoming. Big brass to do that considering I'm 80% passing on the BB movie MPM on the way

    Not trying to be a killjoy, sincerely happy for those who had anticipated news for so long. Glad you guys got what you wanted

    It's the best to date (even nails the scale), but it's blocky in both modes and I agree with @eltonlin98. I will wait to decide since TFEvo has one on the drawing board.

    Edit: also need to see the light up eyes as they're dead in these pics.

    @Jhund is Marky Mark still included? :D 

    While I never got it in the end, Peru Kill's facesculpt I must admit is very intricate and true to character. Challenger's does not have the same presence as that one

    "Lockdown's stuff"?

    Does that mean I am going to have to pay $100 to get his Spark Extractor and get a Prime figure as a bonus? I'm OK with that.

    Oh SNAP. He looks GLORIOUS. So clean from every angle; that back...

    Not totally sold on the face sculpts, and thought they might try to fix the angle on the collar... but there's still time! Have no doubt they'll continue to make refinements until it's released.

    Looking spectacular so far!
