    Looks to be heavily repainted/resculpted as well

    Intriguing! My biggest issue with Challenger was the lack of/shallow detail and the blockiness and this looks to be fixing it.

    Is that a final one or a Testshot ?

    Tha lack of flames suggests it's a test shot - though it does look otherwise finished.
    I'd like to see a side by side or image against a measuring tape to see how much larger it is. That looks like something i'd seriously consider though - might complement the existing MP 2007 stype Optimus' too.

    I really must try to remember to get a DOTM style Optimus sometime I have a lot of the 1st kinda and a lot of the Western Star quite a lot of quasi-G1 looking Freightliners and not much in the middle.

    His chest looks even more like a giant pair of tits without the flame detailing

    Yeah, the original Challenger was always not quite there for me but I may grab this one if he's less blocky and better painted.

    Looks great except the rib/ab section is very weirdly proportioned and oddly angled. Hopefully it looks better in person but you can see with the side-by-side with the 3A version that they're not quite right. Everything else looks like a nice improvement, including the articulated fingers and what appear to be better articulated toes. I really REALLY hope they added more ankle posability as that is a major weakness on the original! Excited to see it FLAMING hopefully soon.

    This really does look awesome, it's something I've always wanted since the beginning. But unfortunately my UT challenger days are over...
    If TMT and AAT hadn't revealed their Optimus, this would've been an instant bought. Unless it turns out that theirs is shit then yea I'd probably get this instead lolol

    If I'm not wrong, the original figure was only around 25cm, that's why people hated how tall Dragoon was.

    Yeah, if they could somehow switch Prime's shorter waist with Dragoon's longer waist, both figures would have a significant upgrade!

    Loving all the changes but it's the new elbows that intrigue me most.

    Many improvements on this one not just the height..The whole chest/ab area is now rounded and the details are more accurate..The elbow joints are different,the shins now have cybertronian carvings..The hands could be different but cant say that for sure...Have you guys spotted any other improvements?
