    Something feels off about this. Still a cool figure. But doesn't feel like an "Optimus" Prime to me. The head sculpt is a bit different from what I expected. Might take a while for me to warm up to it.

    Photos are here for those that can't see:

    Gotta say everything looks good with the exception of the mid upper chest red grill. It just throws off the look for some reason.

    I like that alt mode, but the robot mode... is not doing it for me. I'm reminded of the 'alternate universe' Prime from DW's Armada comics that Unicron dumped barely-alive in the Armada-verse as a warning.

    "Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime" or a design of optimus prime that turned into the gi joe vehicle named "rolling thunder"

    i think that is how it goes, not 100% sure about all the details

    The used head in the pictures kinda reminds me of a mix of G2 pyro and optimus prime with some parts laser rod prime thrown in. But very curious about the other heads. But anybody have a release date for this?

    Something about the grill opening in the middle of the chest make it look like the toy has an electronic speaker in it.

    Ditto. Good thing there are two more heads to choose from.

    I can't help but feel like there have to be some additional features on this thing - too many moving parts that aren't explained by the transformation...

    Without looking more like the Rolling Thunder, in colors and alt mode design,... it's just another random Optimus Prime to me.

    Hah, I think you're right. That explains why it looks odd...

    Though, it looks like the eyes were painted in photoshop, so it should be easy for them to fix the promo pictures.
