    Well that's unexpected. Maybe the red chrome will stay on the base better this time around.

    It'd be nice if we could see what he actually looks like without the glare.

    They finally get to year of the rooster and it's that toy again, I was hoping for something, I dunno cooler. I mean the robot mode is alright but damn that truck mode. They should have gone with a Prime with a flight mode, like Cybertron.

    I'd love to have it, but not for the $150 it's going to cost.

    I always wanted that, until I found out how tiny and expensive that thing is.

    Would be nice if they released Hybrid Style Galaxy Convoy instead, but oh well. I never thought they'd release this mold. Cool!

    Thank you!
    And thanks! :D 

    I thought it was another YotX MP release, but it's... this. :confused: 

    Wow, does truck mode look f*cked up. :lol  But I get it: Optimus fetish is strong, so collectors will buy this, even if it's a bad toy. :rolleyes2
