    That actually looks really good. I'm suck and tired of Optimus Prime but it looks like it could be a lot of fun. I might end up getting this after all.

    You need to buy a car to get the red version.

    This would make a great modern Ironhide. Kinda has his WFC/RID proportions going on.

    I love this for sheer fact that it's the FJ and makes for a great TF in general because that bot mode is nice.As for it being Optimus?Doesn't seem like a great fit.Maybe as Ironhide or Bulkhead.Regardless,this would be nice to have on my shelf and it might just be there down the road.

    Does it actually transform, or is it just a parts-former?

    There are quite a few choices to match all the FJ colors available in Japan.

    That doesn't change the fact that the only way to get the red version is to buy a car. Yellow/white is the main release, and the other colors are exclusives.

    True- but one of the wonderful things about this is that it's incredibly easy to customize. (in fact that's supposed to be why they included the white panels)

    If you want red, all you need is a couple pages of newspaper, a can of red spray paint and a little patience (drying time).

    I'm hoping the panels can easily be placed and then removed again (rather than on just once forever).

    If you feel even mildly intimidated radicons can give you tips. It doesn't get any easier than this.

    I was poking around on the Transformers FJ site and found the following. Looks pretty neat.

    As an idea, it's fantastic. Unfortunately, I think the end result is ugly enough to greatly decrease the coolness of what it actually does. But that's me.

    The Green one with a new head would make a more than passable Brawn.

    Some Knock off maker could run these off in a bazillian colours or even cast them in white and spray them with metallic paint afterwards... there's be a small interest in that I suppose.

    I think Spraying the white frame in a nice metallic cherry red would lead to a nice finish for the toy.

    Does any one know if it has a bicep swivel? If it had that I'm defined getting it he looks small but stocky like a little brawling prime heh but no bicep swivel makes it a deal breaker
