    Why are so many G1 Optimus Prime figures pointing?

    For example: SCF/HoC, 3" Titanium, Robot Heroes, Revoltech, THS-01 - are all pointing or have a pointing hand accessory.

    WTF is he pointing at?! Seriously, I'm intrigued.

    They're pointing at Megatron, about to fire their finger lasers to blow his cannon off.

    Apart from the widdle Robot Heroes one. He's the evil Prime in your closet.

    He is showing precisely where the Autobots need to transform and roll out to. It's that kind of direction that has made him such a legendary leader.

    Man look at all the threads in Transformers General Discussion
    -The Transformers name game
    -What is Optimus pointing at
    -Fav Transformer of the day
    We seriously need a new TF cartoon for something new to talk about, the only TF related forum that's even moving is the toy discussion

    And they seriously expect us to wait until...what was it...NEXT FALL for the next Transformers series?! Honestly, they could have put Animated on hold for the movie and bring it back later, but for God's sake, did they really have to cancel it?
    LOL, Buzz Killington. :lol  (BTW 1000th post!!)

    All great field commanders point their troops into battle. How else would they know where to go and kick some ass?

    Though, he also maybe trying to tell you that you have something in your teeth. Right there. No, THERE. He's pointing to it.

    It's all part of a cunning plan, he confronts Megatron, points into the distance and shouts "Look, an MISB Reflector!", then shoots Megs in the back of the head while he's looking away.

    He's a leader, he is supposed to point like everyone else said he is pointing at the battlefield leadeing his troops.
