    They made Soundwave especially thicc this time around. He still looks cool, but it’s a departure for sure

    Mmm a ThreeZero Soundwave in all his thickness would be a delight.

    It\'s a terrific representation, and it\'s certainly the best movie Prime, but it\'s still a bit over-designed for my tastes. Smooth a few greebles out (the faceplate is a bit finicky) and it\'d be terrific. Can\'t fault the figure though, it\'s bang on to the source material, and in some of those shots it could be lifted directly from the film. I wish they\'d started the movie designs with this.

    I definitely think that it isn’t under-designed. If it had any more surface detail I’d freak. But I think we’ve also seen very little of this Prime in general. If he appears again I think those opinions may show more.

    This looks expensive because it's so good.

    Makes me really and truly appreciate this design for Optimus. Bravo again to the entire Bumblebee design crew.

    Seeing how accurate this figure is to the film really gives credit to the cgi work on optimus. He looks so real and tangible in the film that if I had no prior knowledge I could not tell what was real and what is CG.

    If this design doesn\'t get the MP treatment it would be such a wasted opportunity. Right now this my favorite aesthetic for Prime.

    I\'ll wait till the toyworld version comes out, it\'s not only transformable, but also accurate! ;)  Till All Are One!

    The only reason I'm not jumping on this one is the fact that it says "bumblebee" on the stand. Call me crazy but my "OCD" won't allow me to fully enjoy this figure knowing it came from a Bumblebee-focused movie instead of a full-on Transformers one.

    You could just not use the stand if that’s an option

    It could be an option but this is more about the idea of him having so little screen time in a movie that could've been so much more.

    Why would Prime have more screentime in a film called Bumblebee?

    i'm in the same boat, but i've been at a point where designs n toys come before media for years now so once i rub the bumblebee logo off the stand i'll be fine.

    this isn't "bumblebee" optimus prime to me. this design is just... optimus prime. it's a realistic version of g1 prime n that's all i need.

    Yeah, but I mean just buy it cause you like the toy. If you start connecting stuff to things you like it gets complicated.
