    I'll buy him if someone makes a nice Thunderclash upgrade set for him.

    It would need a new head and chest piece at the very least.

    Pass.
    I have regular CW Optimus and it really is a dull figure.

    Nope.

    Sad thing is if Hasbro had taken this opportunity to do Optimus in Energon/Superlink colours I'd have totally bought this.

    I really like the head sculpt, but the Jesus paint job has me on the fence about it. I already have CW Prime (AKA Dreamwave-imus) and I don't need the same toy again for a new (albeit much cooler) headsculpt.

    He looks terrible.... like an obese version of Optimus Prime.

    Something tells me that since the head says Star Convoy a lot, I'm betting Takara for their Unite Warriors version set of the Optimus Maximus wave they'll use this version of the mold and repaint it in Star Convoy colours rather then the regular version of the mold which is used for the Grand Scourge repaint.

    I'll be getting him, but only to display as OP Maximus. I'll display the original OP separately.

    Interesting comments and poll responses so far. More "Yes+Maybe" than "No".

    If you look at it that way, you can also say "there are way more 'Maybe+No' than 'Yes'."

    I plan on getting this if I can sell the first Optimus (anyone?). That ones head is way too tiny. This one will help break up the sea of red and blue in my Optimus display.

    Pointless repaint of a mold that was horrible in the first place.
    So...pass.

    I'll get him if he goes on clearance. He makes a neat Nova Prime homage if nothing else.

    Not at full price. But as the Voyagers have tended to end up over-ordered and under-bought over here there's a fair chance He will be available on a deal so......maybe.

    Aside that I think it would have sold a lot better had they actually done the remould work to make a decent Thunderclash. That I would have bought no questions asked.

    I had originally planned on getting him and repurposing him into Nova Prime. But after deciding to re-prioritize what I buy and keep in my collection, I had to put down a "No" for now.
