    Drift works because he was already a sleak, Gundam-esque, ninja bot. Optimus...not so much.

    Gorgeous! I wish I could afford to buy all these figures. Maybe one day. If I had to pick just one, I'd probably end up with Star Saber, but I'd rather go all-or-nothing on these because I'm crazy like that.

    I think that might be the entire point of the whole line, to get people that are into gundpla to start checking out transformers since it isn't super popular in japan compared to Gundam. New Transformers fans is a good thing.

    If Drift is 300, is this one like 500?

    Flame toys are awesome. I aint gonna buy the sumbiches cause they're expensive as $hit, but I really love and respect their work.
    And this is a killer cool design. Might not be for everybody, but I think it's very cool.

    Looks really cool but I grow tired of these crotch forward poses that these overseas companies like to pose their figures in. Is it supposed to look cool or imposing? Or masculine?

    It’s like, “can it do the Iron Man or Crotch Forward pose? If not we can’t do it!”

    This is a based on IDW Prime, heavily stylized but still pretty recognizable as IDW Prime. So you always have GT-03 as a good option for a version of this guy that Transforms (and is a lot cheaper)

    They\'re also very expensive.

    Looks rad as hell, love those anime proportions. Really wish I could afford these Flame Toys figures because they're probably my favorite-looking non-transforming transformers ever.

    Wow, they certainly kept it close to the design artwork!

    Looks impressive of course, although not as spectacularly detailed (or as comic-accurate) as their Tarn or Star Saber.

    I truly love the dynamism these figures offer, the kind of dynamism we can\'t get with a transforming figure. They appeal to me as a TF enthusiast and a robot enthusiast in general.

    Seems like they were going full IDW and then it took a hard Gundam turn somewhere. Tarn, Drift, and Sabes are echoed perfectly from IDWs. The Model Prime and Scream, and this Prime seem to be headed to the Gundam style. Hoping they just stick with IDW more since they look sooooo good accurately realized. That said, this is so cool I may need this Prime depending on the price this time. That seems to change too. More TF fans IS cool. Hopefully not at too much a sacrifice. I am a total fanboy for the IDW looks.
