    I'm still so happy this figure exists. Always admired Nakomake's Optimus design from afar; never thought I'd be able to own such an affordable, high-quality version of it. :)

    Yeah, but I'm weird like that. I'll notice some small details sometimes, but other times I'll miss obvious bits. :lol

    Would love to see this Soundwave of his given the same treatment.

    Either deco.

    But probably the more Prime esque version.

    Well, this Prime seems pretty popular and this design is even better. Such a wonderful hybrid of Prime and live action with little G1 flourishes. Potentially decent crossover appeal.

    I'd prefer to see this over the Grimlock which - while a very cool design - doesn't hit the way these two do.

    I absolutely hate the horns on both heads and I don't care for the knee cones but otherwise he's pretty cool. But you're right, even with those changes, he still wouldn't hit the same.

    Completely agree to both. I know they were working on a mass produced kit of Grimlock which got my attention, but then some of the details looked a little off while still being cool. Seems to have stalled out so not sure what's going on with it, but I could see Grimlock eventually going the same route as Prime and that would be...... eh... ok, but I'm hoping someone rediscovers Soundwave eventually cuz more people need to be able to own that.

    Maybe message them directly on their site or email and not tag a user page that hasn't been active since December?

    a few years I finally broke down and bought an unassembled kit. The finished ones were just out of the question expensive. Still a lot of money, but it was maybe only half as much as the finished ones. Had to build it and paint it myself, but he is glorious!

    but a release like this would be WONDERFUL! (Especially if they offered both decos and if it is maybe less fragile than mine)

    Ooooft. This toy fucking slaps.

    The LED and internal workings gimmickry are top notch, really breathing life into an already incredibly vibrant piece.

    Does this mean we "know" for sure that Fantasmo KO'd the product rather than worked with Nakomake?
