    Meh Il buy it and possibly see if I can mod the trailer to look better in combined mode but I hope that its just mistransformed since seeing the movie trailer makes me think it is....

    This is the first time I'll say this for any movie toy but I am severely underwhelmed. 'm forcing myself to believe that Hasbro (as usual) haven't presented it properly. Remember ROTF prime and the incorrect smokestack placement?

    I don't know..... meh. I do like the "thought" though. He was definitely using Jetfire's armor in the preview last night, so this must be the final fight version of him. I think I will be getting this guy. Must see more pics.

    Hmmm...I think I'm waiting for Clearance. $80 is a lot to drop on that.

    Color me unimpressed. The only time this thing looks anywhat decent, is in vehicle mode. The bot mode alone is very underwhelming, the trailers addition to him is very underwhelming. I just don't see any of what I see in this fig, remotely resembling what we saw in the trailer. Yes, I am judging off a few second clip of Optimus flying in, slicing and dicing. This just doesn't fit the bill of expectations. The only chance of me purchasing it, it for the trailer alone.

    I will go ahead and compare this to ROTF Supreme Devy. A lot of people didn't like it, I did, because of the bot mode. It may of been huge and bulky and rediculous, but it looked a hell of a lot more like the movie than this thing does.

    I can't even begin to break down what I hate about the regular bot mode.

    Dissapointment. It's obviously a more "kid friendly" approach but that's just awful. I can tell right away the combined mode looks nothing like what we briefly saw in the trailer, and the Optimus itself looks meh. He essentially lies down into the trailer and it unfolds into... whatever.

    I would just buy it for the robot mode and vehicle mode. There would be no "fairy, savior" mode, just those 2. Now I want to buy a Jetfire/Buster Optimus set to make up for this debacle.

    Looks like I'll be saving that $80 then. Leader Class ROTF Prime is still the best!

    I don't think that's too fair a statement, especially when considering how many hamfisted manchildren on this very board were complaining about how hard he is to transform. :lol

    Ugh. What's up with those arms? Not good, Hasbro.

    I hope this isn't the only movie OP to come with a trailer.

    Guys, I'm not sure it's meant to represent the boosters in the trailer. I think this might be an even bigger upgrade.

    Which doesn't mean it doesn't suck :p 

    As for those people hoping it's mistransformed: just look at the trailer panels. Look like the panels can't break or bend any further. I doubt we're able to transform or align this toy in a different way that makes it better looking.

    Uh...wow. How naive of me to expect a true ULTIMATE anything from Hasbro. What a catastrophic failure. Saving me $80, and I'm not even sure if I will snag it on clearance.

    I was expecting legit armor and a jetpack, not Saraphimon.
