    I knew the Unicron Trilogy was perfect for Fans Hobby! I want a Cybertron Optimus from them too, and hell, maybe a Fatimus. Oh, and Tidal Wave. And everything else...

    IMO, energon optimus in the show was not fat, only the toy was that thick, if they do an energon Optimus would be interesting.

    Ugh as a silhouette it's reeeaaaaally noticeable how bad some of the proportions are. What's with the weedy upper arms and the thin wheels? come on Fans Hobby.

    I only ever saw slowly buffering youtube clips of the show when I was a kid, that was back when my family only had 33 channels on TV and Cartoon Network was not one of them. I still have and love ol' Fatimus, I really like his design and would argue he's an extremely underrated toy. I will never care about screen-accuracy for A/E/C stuff because I never saw more than a few seconds of anything but Cybertron. So yeah, make him fat!

    If nothing else it'll certainly be nice to see this designs super mode with some actual articulated legs finally after all these years.

    Hoping the awkward arm proportions are just a result of the very static early renders they've blacked out there. I don't mind the wheels being narrower though, always felt they stood out a bit too much on the old toy.
