    I so wish Hasbro could have put their chrome budget on this instead of blowing it all on the Platinum Dinobots and Prime with Trailer sets. It would have made this look so much nicer.

    Looks a lot better than the first FE AOE Optimus, what a difference paint makes!

    He's so badass no poses are necessary. Perfect for blocking the shittier dvds in your collection.

    Oh yay, a Silver Knight repaint that doesn't suck ass. Too bad they chose the worst of the two moulds for this figure. My guess is that the First Edition mould will have less issues with chrome chipping, and potentially less parts to paint.

    Yeah I transformed him twice very carefully for pics and I already have paint chips. Just on the sides of his thighs and on the very front-top of the hood. Nothing too crazy. Seeing as his truck mode is blah, I highly recommend not transforming him if you pick him up.

    FYI - He does have rubber tires although the inner part is black and it just blends in with the tire.

    He looks awful, not to mention he doesn't even begin to match the "concept" he's based on, which was nothing more than another random design cliche completely out of place in a TF movie.

    Yep. What I think is clever is the red flames on the chest that help blend the red plastic shoulder "joiner". The dark torso and knee flames help break up the silver too but the red shoulders are the best.



    This is the version that would tempt me.. if any.
