    Looks like new heads to make Machine Wars Optimus Prime. Neat idea. Not sure how much traction it’ll get.

    Not a bad idea but how many runs of this mold will they have to release before they get back to G2 Megatron?

    At last! :D  Updates on the eventual Machine Wars Optimus Prime repaint. Cool of them to give you options to reference his box art faceplate.

    There's the cancelled Universe 1.0 Menasor repaint of the Thunderclash mold they can always touch on.

    Yeah, I know. And a Star Convoy stretch and the Rodimus Convoy concept if they really wanted to stretch. Probably a Delta Magnus of some sort too.

    I was on the fence about Thunderclash. I think it's a good use of the mold, but we didn't have Thunderclash in the States and I wasn't aware of him until he turned up in IDW. I've got no attachment to the character and not super into those colors. Ultimately passed.

    I'm down for Machine Wars Optimus, though. He'll look good in my random Optimus collection.

    Finally!!

    I love that they’re giving bonus heads to both. I’ll likely leave the toy accurate head (Thunderclash) on the smaller robot and use the Prime head for the larger one.

    I was really looking forward to this! And I’ll still get it so long as FH takes care of my broken LE... I sent a Facebook message and got a reply right away. Hopefully all goes well. Also still only have one turbine for LE...

    Anyway, I plan to have the smaller robot of ME with the Thunderclash head and the combined mode with the Prime looking head.

    For people more familiar with this, could the Fans Hobby Godbomber combine with this Machine Wars Prime?

    Well I guess I'll own this mold three times.
