    I like the lineart box but it's no match for the artwork they had in the past. Also, stickers? Why? That's not cool.

    The best thing about this IMO is the G1-toy headsculpt of the inner robot. Makes me wish we would get an updated G1 Optimus that is basically the original toy but done better. Like, same transformation with a few new things (integrated hands, closed up chest), better articulation but the same overall look.

    They don't appear to at all. You stick the 'gun bot's combiner port into the square hole where the prime armor cover goes.

    You can take any PotP Prime Armor hand and try it yourself right now.

    At least with the stickers unapplied you can put them on correctly yourself. Both my Optimus and Rodimus had horribly misaligned stickers.

    I am so glad they went for optional stickers. Hopefully toyhax comes to the rescue with a more accurate set. And if not, atleast I can choose how and what I put on.

    Or at least better sticker quality, it's the least they can do.

    Looks exactly the same to me. It’s just the camera/lighting (and/or your monitor/screen).
