    Oh well yeah but I don’t like that cut and I think that’s more of an odd design choice apart from the actual thicc-ness.

    They look great in person, fit the curves in the sculpt. Tarn even have much thicker thighs, so don't see the issue really. The cut may look odd from straight front, but looks nice 3/4 and sides. You can always keep the thighs straight to not see the cut.

    Ironic because they’re actually in proportion. The thighs are the largest section of the leg on any functioning body, we’re just so used to seeing mecha with little sticks connecting giant boots to the torso that we see somewhat proportionate legs as an oddity.

    Hummm....talk for you yourself, my thighs are not almost as wide as my waist! You are sort of right though, Flame Toy designs/proportions (especially those designed by this particular designer) tend to be quite humanoid... but exaggeratedly muscular, they're like giant 'roided out He-Man WWE gorillas. Which is fine if you like that sort of thing but not to my taste. Which is a shame because if the thighs were 10-15% smaller I'd think it was a thing of beauty.

    Maybe get some tape over it so you don’t notice from far away.

    Love this guy. I hope he never develops any issues because I would be heart broken.

    My Prime has also finally been shipped from TF-Robots !
    Couldn’t be more excited especially because the next Kuro Kara Kuri figure seems far away from now one.

    Funny that ShowZ just listed the Tarn reissue for $385 but still doesn't have a price for Optimus. The price at local retailers is a bit high at 470 euro, should they sell him for $400 like Star Saber it would be a significant saving.

    Hopefully Sideshow gets their copies in soon. I think a lot of stuff is still playing catch-up after CNY and Corona Virus.

    Anyone else eagerly awaiting Amazon’s release of this guy? They “say” that he’ll release and ship tomorrow, but I’m skeptical. I’d love to have him in hand by Thursday though, since that seems earlier than anywhere else that’s stateside....

    My order from TF Robots says it shipped on 18th, but according to the tracking it's stuck in the Netherlands.
