    Huh. That's actually pretty cool. Might be fun to try to customize with a nicer paint job, especially a chrome pen, to get closer to G1 and have a slightly smaller missing link.

    I get it, options. I guess I feel like the Hot Wheels one we could have done without, given that ML hits the collector market.
    Kudos to those who are in for all of these, your time has ARRIVED, lol.

    Looks awesome, we got so many G1 Primes recently:

    Missing Link (for collectors)
    Mattel Collab (for collectors)
    And now this Deluxe Prime (for parents to buy their kids some nostalgia)

    Missing Link did it better, but for the price this is still excellent. If you love Optimus, it will be hard to pass up!

    That's what I'm thinking. Maybe with a trailer, and hopefully with orange windows.

    Him and ML Convoy are going to be best buds on my shelves.

    Wait, hang on - he does come with two Ion Blasters!?

    This...changes things. I might actually get him, now; the extra weapon will be a neat bonus, that I can then pass on to my Studio Series Gamer Edition Optimus Prime, or even Legacy Elita-1.

    It's a bit odd, but I'd absolutely take it.

    Typical misconception. Hot Wheels Optimus wasn't aimed towards TF fans. It was aimed towards Hot Wheels fans. Look at the RLC forum and HW reddit and you'll see a slew of HW fans biting at a chance to get it and just as many more disappointed they missed out.

    I have both Missing Links and still love this. It's not simply cheaper Missing Link- the proportions overall, especially arm's, are more like a modern toy rather than gangly. I like the colors and looks fun.

    Would have preferred him bigger but maybe someone upscale him.

    This is definitely appreciated for what it is.  As a matter of fact, when the inevitable Toy Hax set drops (which hopefully includes toy stayled decals and chrome stickers) this will be a thing of beauty!

    This will replace my Netflix prime for sure. He's going to get the spoiler pack trailer and be G2 Prime

    Two rifles, an axe, a matrix, and you can remove the smokestacks if you want… And he’s got rubber tires. This thing is going to be AMAZING, especially for the price point. I’ll pick up this whole Deluxe wave.
