    Why did they make the beast mode head so huge again?

    At 12cm would that scale well to MP10/MP44/TE01 etc? They were tiny BW but as Optimal he got pretty fucken big, but how big?

    Yeah, it looks very tiny and not enough space inside to fit anything.

    Does anyone know what the number on this figure and which one is supposed to release after this?

    First page shows a slide where it is listed as EX-42.

    Looks about the right proportions for a gorilla.

    It did say that but then heat death ended up releasing as 42 so I believe this is instead 43

    Thanks both.
    That would mean their next release is IF-44, which is...
    ...Maximus Ambus.

    God I would love that... but still wouldn't be surprise if we see those seeker repaints first.

    Opinions on best place to preorder? Ebay or otherwise

    I think you'd have a better chance with online stores like BBTS, TCP or Kapow (depending where you live), but this is coming from someone who finds the concept of ebay preorders a bit sketchy.

    But he's not a real gorilla, he's a robot. By that logic the proportions are all wrong for robot mode.

    Plus there's the fact that this is Optimal Optimus, who's beast mode looked like this:

    Because, y'know, he was giant. Putting a huge head on a character who's otherwise proportioned like the hulking mechanized robot he is is just bizarre. The big head just doesn't fit with the clearly over-bulked body.

    IF reblogged a post of some pics of legends scaled BW figures, but I can't place the Primal Prime... at first I thought it was a redeco of theirs, but it's a different design. It's too small to be OG and it's not Titanium...

    ..but on the other hand, if the gorilla head is not going to be proportioned as the animal, then he just winds up looking like having another humanoid robot mode with a gorilla face. Go full gorilla or go home!
