    Look superb. They should make more toy in bigger size. Love small toy. But too small they have no room to do anything, a bit bigger deluxe class like this perfect balance. Hope there will be a Cybetrionian Optimus 2.0. And a remold grimlock with normal look, no samurai

    This dude looks like he could backhand a grown ass man and not even put stress on a single joint. I’ve always been watching IF’s releases, but the number of tolerance issues I read always keeps me from biting on most of them. However, I think I’m gonna have to bite on this. Loved this story in general, and this figure looks like a great rendition of that. Price is a tad harsh on my budget, but that’s a lot of plastic.

    Probably gonna wait till y’all give your personal experiences, but I’m hyped regardless just to see y’all’s pictures!

    Chinese retailers (ShowZ, Baba, etc) have not received their stock either.

    Is it me, or does it look like his cab will face backwards in robot mode? like their previous Magnus?

    EDIT: Judging by the two silver pieces above the cab, it looks like I'm wrong. Along with other details, the cab may actually be facing forward. If this ends up with the cab being encased in armor I'm definitely getting it.

    There's videos a few pages back you can check out, and your edited assumption is correct!

    Those pics are amazing. I'm still on the fence tbh. I'm very picky about certain things, but he does look better than the original rendered images.

    I might end up getting him and just throwing away minimus.

    If I pick him up I'm taking apart the shoulder and removing the white shoulder towers. They are just too much. Yes I know it does truck mode but let's be honest its a chubby funny looking truck mode "truck cannon" so I would sacrifice for a cleaning looking bot.

    They don’t bother me but I totally get it. I remove extraneous stuff from bots all the time if I don’t personally like how it looks. Accuracy doesn’t matter to me on things that I buy for the “looks cool” factor. If you pick one up and remove them, make sure to let us see how he looks!
