    Are you sure Animated Optimus is this week? I got an updated ship date from Amazon but it was only a few days earlier to Jan 28.

    Robot mode is okay but I’m not a fan of the alt mode.

    Animated for me is slated for the 11th while Thundertron already shipped.

    Maybe but the fact that they were able to make a Voyager figure that big, so accurate and with such level of articulation and accessories is commendable.

    Crazy this is a rare instance where people are getting figures before I've seen reviews of stolen copies. (animated optimus and Thundertron)

    Is also pretty surprising that he's not that small compared to the original Voyager Animated Optimus. A rare instance considering how big and great the Animated figures were and Legacy Animated Optimus most certainly beats the original in terms of articulation and not having a weird waist rotation gimmick to boot.

    By the way, I hope that DNA Designs makes a Wingblade upgrade set that can also make the alt-mode look like an actual fire truck.

    I know they're shipping from Amazon, which I didn't preorder Legacy Animated Bee from, but I'm wondering if he's going to ship soon as well.

    Animated Optimus looks pretty awesome. May I ask if his axe is cross-compatible with the original Optimus toy? I've been wondering that for a while now, seeing how he looks holding it.

    Amazon says my Thundertron and my Magneous are coming this wednesday but they still haven't shipped. I am suspicious.

    I may not be getting Thundertron this month, but I am definitely super curious about it. That Optimus is alright and all but Thundertron seems like an unexpected gem. Kind of curious if Thundertron's head sculpt will look better to the people who have him in hand, not that I ever had a problem with it.
