    Got my Optimus today. Despite having all the others, I wasn't prepared for how large he is. He's very tall with very thick and powerful looking legs. His sword puts Star Saber's to shame and his axe is gigantic!

    Since this may be my first Flame Toys figure (not counting the model kits), I am so on the fence... I wish someone would post an English review (either written or video). The design looks awesome, and that damaged faceplate, Prima’s Star Saber, and light-up Martix are wonderful; but 3A has really been scratching my itch on non-transforming TFs lately. I’ve got two of them in PO, so any money that I would be dropping on this could just pay those POs...

    It kinda feels weird as though Optimus is being favoured as the big guy. But it’s still cool.

    Tarn is bigger I believe, it's just Optimus is taller and thicker than I was expecting.

    No issues or loose joints. The legs bend at the knee a lot more easily than any of the others. Which threw me for a loop at first, as I thought they were loose when it's just intended to be that way since the mechanism is a little different and intended to move more easily.

    Kinda ironic considering that Star Saber is the one supposed to be a swordsman.
    Sometimes I wish Star Saber was as big as MP24. Then I realize his friction joints wouldn't probably last a day.

    I just got Shattered Glass Drift for 230 shipped. Will use that to judge on whether to get the rest or at least this one.

    It really is, they arn’t huge and they arn’t small but they are super dense with all the metal and articulation engineering.

    Man! The dude looks like a Masterpiece toy, without being considered one.

    Tough to justify the cost on this one but the incredible pictures have me seriously tempted.
