    AmiAmi usually gets all the releases first and I can confirm that they come with the bonus parts.

    That's nice to hear. The last one I bought was Optimus and it was still all friction. I'd gladly have some ratchet joints for Magnus, even if that makes him slightly less posable.

    Looks brilliant. I think the only complaint that I have is that the head feels more TFTM than it does MTMTE, if that makes sense? Hoping it has extra faceplates (that aren't D4 exclusive).

    I hate this bonus item crap. Figures are already ridiculously expensive and then to not include all the accessories. Frustrating

    Stop trying to make this acronym a thing. You've been doing it for years now and the only trend you've started is people telling you to shut up every time you post it.

    Finally, I have acquired the Optimus Prime I've been longing for, complete with the jet power armour upgrade. DSC01539ee2.jpg DSC01526ee2.jpg DSC01542ee2.jpg DSC01555ee2.jpg DSC01560ee2.jpg DSC01550ee2.jpg

    The Optimus Prime I obtained is the reissue version. The joints are tight, and they have addressed the knee joint issues present in the initial release. The armor remains securely attached, although the new face attachment is slightly prone to popping off compared to other upgrade parts. Despite these minor concerns, the upgraded version looks incredibly badass. However, achieving desired poses can be challenging due to the numerous sharp fins throughout the figure. One must exercise caution, particularly with the thin and pointy fins on the foot armor—I unfortunately damaged mine while posing it.

    The backpack is quite heavy, causing the upper body to lean backward. However, once adjusted to the correct angle, it manages to hold up adequately.

    You can sacrifice some of the low quality transforming Hasbro figures from your collection. No need to have so many different figures when you can get a few really nice ones.

    I hope they dont try to scale him like that junk image. Part of the appeal of this line is that they are are nearly the same build. If this turns into a off scale thing like the retail junk figures then its time for me to tap out.

    ShowZ pre order is already sold out. I still have my BBTS order so hopefully that still pans out and I haven’t completely missed the boat on this one.

I emailed and they gave a generic ass itll come when it comes answer lol. But also showz puts things up for PO really early so maybe we will see it in a month or two
