    Not a fan. Even less a fan of the Bumblebee one.

    I can't believe that's even a real commercial. Just doesn't have the usual Hasbro flair when they do ads. Guess I'll find out if I ever see it on TV.

    Im sorry, the more I see this, the more it looks like a big hunk of S--t. Yes, that may be from a collector and not a kid's viewpoint, but I would feel embarrassed giving this thing to any of my friend's kids. Come on, did they even put any thought into the "battle station mode?" Is a kid going to look at that and say, "yup, this is clearly a battle station." At least the other cyberverse vehicles at Walmart actually resemble something reasonable. This thing just turns in from Half-Ass Optimus Prime into Half-Ass Optimus Prime sitting down.

    Commercial? This thing tries to be like a Fort Max, but it's a hollow pos.

    What an inspiring advertisement. I suddenly feel inclined to make this purchase.

    Cool, a giant Optimus Prime that turns into an armchair.

    Day 1 purchase.

    It's like an anti-advert. I was originally interested, but now after seeing this I'm not.

    What a poorly articulated POS. He sits down and you rotate his feet and head and that's a vehicle?

    Sigh, probably gonna buy this hideousness anyway...

    Needs to be less hollow. I realize that they want it to hold a lot of figures, but they could cover those spots with hatches or something. Maybe spend less on lights and sounds and more on actual working parts.

    This video cements the fact that I'm not gonna be a completist in regards to this line even though I wanted to originally. Still, I'll pick this up when/if I see it on clearance.

    *Voices heard from all directions*

    "Me Grimlock no like you!"

    "Soundwave superior."

    "I, Galvatron, will crush you, just as Megatron crushed Prime."

    "Uhhh...what'd he say his name was?"

    "Don't act hostile. I'll use the universal greeting."

    It wouldn't look so bad if it more solid. Instead it looks like it was blasted point blank with a shotgun.

    Yeah, it's like the design brief was to make as big a figure as they could using as little plastic as possible and some bright spark said 'We can fill him with loads of holes and make everything hollow!'.

    It's like making a Deluxe with a Legends-worth of plastic. Or since this is bigger, a Leader with a Deluxes-worth. Or is it supposed to be Supreme-sized? Well, apply as required.

    I've loved the Cyberverse line, but this thing is just awful to me. And that demo somehow managed to actually make it look worse.

    I love the Ark, and like Wheeljack's ship and Knockout's driller..... This is just.......ugh. It doesn't even look like a base.

    You hit the nail on the head, this was my line of thinking as well.
