    Man Optimus looks great!! Can’t wait to have him with my CHUH TFA crew. They’ve been doing really well recently and I can’t wait for more

    He’s just phenomenal! Check out that poseability, too. I really appreciate the effort that went into this one.

    Looks fantastic but really needed other figures alongside to check the scale.

    Prime strikes such a great balance. Almost like the initial classics line. The character is clearly represented, but it just seems like the next logical step in the designs evolution.

    Might actually pick this guy up. Given how many Optimii I have, it’d probably be rude not to invite him.

    My most anticipated figure of the year. If he can pull ER Prime’s trailer it will be god-tier.

    Wow he would've really benefited from opening hands.

    Want to see this guy with the Earthrise before deciding on buying, but he was definitely a pleasant surprise to see just how fantastic he looks. Main worry now is the truck being too fat. I wish they'd indulged on opening hands—if Jhiaxus and Tarn got them he should really have them when he has a two-handed weapon.

    Optimus looks great. I can’t wait to add him to the Legacy Animated crew along with Bumblebee (I have Prowl).

    Agreed. One figure is each year of Legacy so far has had opening hands. If this Prime had it I think it would have elevated him to a higher status.

    That and the fact that the axe is extendable/long at all. Seeing that GIF come to life in toy form is amazing.

    I pre-ordered him during the reveal, but I wasn't too thrilled with the figure.
    After seeing Mark's pictures, I AM EXCITE!

    Thanks for posting these in the thread. Also, I like your screen name, very apt for a message board.

    Between this and your posts in the Windblade thread I can’t imagine how you’d fare back in the BW/BM days, where the only early photos we’d get would be insanely colored test shots, like the ones of Trashmaster, as opposed to the flood of videos and photos for just about every figure we now get. The comparison photos will come soon enough – well before you need to make a final decision.

    Also, did you ask Mark (politely) if he could do some comparison shots? They’ve been known to honor such requests.

    I mean, all these photos and videos are coming to us for free. If you want them faster there’s eBay! :) 

    C’mon now. Optimuses, Optimi, sure. But two terminal Is and an apostrophe S? That just breaks my brain. :p  Rule of thumb: no plural ever needs an apostrophe. (I await someone proving me wrong with some rare exception I’ve forgotten about.)
