    Silly boy, you get the disc to unlock the download, then you pay for a season pass that gets you all the already finished content that they ripped from the base game, so they can sell it back to you as DLC!

    Then they will sell you time savers that only need to exist because they make the difficulty / grind so unfair, you get tempted to BUY the solution.

    Then you have to pay to play the multiplayer which will have more DLC skins and pay to win mechanics.

    And to top it off, you will probably have a crappy censored "safe" game so that way the game doesn't offend ANYONE...

    That is modern gaming. This is what you get in the box LOL

    So why not pick up a controller and open your wallet and shut up if you have complaints about your games story and mechanics?... if you like you can maybe have fun... but give us money first.

    LOL

    $93 actually.

    That's part of it. Don't forget the spectraflame.

    Now ya get it!

    We are a little eccentric. Mattel knows this and takes advantage. Welcome to the madhouse.

    I wouldn't have minded picking one of these up but missed the boat. They seem to be going for crazy prices on ebay already.

    Couple pics next to core prime and a hot wheels car. The trailer is just barely too big and can’t hitch, but you can use the trailer stand to pose it like it’s hitched to the truck.

    FedEx sent my package to the other side of the country this weekend with no movement on tracking today. Wish me luck, folks.

    When I didn’t get any shipping indication last Friday… it became an incredibly long holiday weekend until Tuesday for business to resume, lol. :p 

    Naturally, Tuesday just came and went and still no indication on USPS, FedEx, UPS, or Mattel Creations that it has shipped. :confused:

    Every single email notification I get in my Outlook, gives me hope that I got a shipping notification... Nope! Just people on this thread lol.

    Question is there a way to turn off getting emails while still getting alerted when I log in?

    I remember reading that he could be displayed in the box in either mode but I don't think anybody has posted pics of the bot mode in the box so here it is. I'm sure it's obvious but, just in case, there's a separate plastic tray for the bot mode and this is also where his gun is when you first open him.

    1000307~2.jpg

    Before anybody gets too excited, this is a third party trailer belonging to Newage David (their version of Optimus). Sadly, like pretty much any cartoon style Optimus, David's trailer sits very high and, even with the peg just resting on HW Prime's peg, it still doesn't reach, causing the trailer to tilt forward. Still...

    1000300~2.jpg

    This is pretty cool even if it doesn't really match.

    1000304~2.jpg

    With Missing Link. Good year for Optimuses. Optimussesses... Optimii?

    1000302~2.jpg

    Love ML's articulation and this is how I usually display him.

    1000308~2.jpg

    And with a 3P Legends Optimus. The truck modes are roughly the same size but this Optimus in particular (Magic Square) has a ridiculously thick back end with an even higher trailer.

    So here is my photo spam for the thread!!!! I know that everyone likes the rubber wheels, but I wished they were plastic since they last longer (and are what I grew up with). My copy had some glue in his left wrist that I had to clear out to make his fist fit (which I didn't realize till after I took the photos and was worried I had to return him or exchange).

    Bonus! I bought the MP-44S for the toy look on a Hasbro Pulse sale to go with my Toy MP Megatron. So here is a photo of MP-44S, C-02 (Missing Link Optimus Prime), Walmart rerelease G1 Optimus Prime, and Hot Wheels Optimus Prime.

    @Snaku you can flip the card around behind the tray to show the "robot mode" background.

    Well then here he is with the robot background. And a pic of the back of the box if anybody cares about that.

    1000319~2.jpg

    I actually prefer the truck background with the robot and vise versa. Kinda like getting to experience both modes at the same time. Kinda.
