    Since were both working upon speculation, i think the likelihood of him being made outweigh that of the never. Anyways, @Lockon Prime here he is! What a beautiful figure! I am still getting used to this OS scale. The paint is prone to chipping but that is ok with me. The lack of ratchets is a bummer, and unfortunately he did inherit the bad of ss38's head. My gosh, he looks great especially for the price. I cannot wait to get a Thunder Leader! 00000PORTRAIT_00000_BURST20210301173532712.jpg 00100lrPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20210301173510789_COVER.jpg

    The thing is SS86 and WFC are complementary lines, so an optimus won't appear in that line because we have ER/K optimus.

    I'm glad that you got him today, and that you're happy with him!! How much did you get him for, if you don't mind me asking?

    Did his antenna break?? Bad SS38's head?

    Pretty sure you already said this but to reinforce the point.

    Not only did we get the definitive G1 Optimus with no need for another that same mold has already been Repainted into a dead version of the character which we all know is to reference the 86 movie.

    Right now i am trying to see if i can shape his eyes. The ss38 head and M09 look almost the same vs the Toyworld. I prefer the tw. The eyes are a bit on the long side with m09. If you also notice, for some reason the face looks wider on m09. Ill post pics in a bit.

    Late to the party but my Threezero Soundwave finally came in. I am soooo stoked for the Bay designs to join my DLX collection! Hopefully we see Jetfire soon!

    Ha-ha! On the ground, per favore! And stay there! 20210301_230310-01.jpeg
    I don't know bro, I think the sculpting on the heads are completely different. And the face on M09 is actually more accurate than TW's.

    Just some subtle changes to his head. I
    I tried to darken the areas of his face to slim it down a bit. I also tried to reshape the eyes with some paint to see how he would look. 00100lrPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20210301191833669_COVER~2.jpg

    Damn bro, that looks amazing!! I see what you mean abt the eyes though!!

    Btw, here's what I did to fix the bleeding led lights through the forehead. 20201104_210535.jpg
    I lined the inside of the face with black electrical tape.

    Nice! I was afraid of opening it for fear of flying springs! For his eyes, I could not find foil stickers so i had to be a bit creative. Temporary for now but much better than the empty eye look. IMG_20210302_002259~2.jpg . Update:. Better lighting. @Lockon Prime it still kinda lights up lol. But not worried about it, i just want him to have eyes. IMHO he looks better and his face looks slimmer. IMG_20210302_092229.jpg

    The eyes look really good!! Do they still light up through the paint??

    There are no springs in his head though,so no worries there. You can split the face apart right behind the ears.

    The real scary part is replacing the batteries, bcs of fragile the piece holding the batteries is!! That said, if you're careful, you should have no issues changing them. I've done it twice now.

    I still can't believe this was an actual scene that they went with for the movie and I also can't believe it's acknowledged in toy form.

    If a Studio Series Devcon is coming, he can have his own shelf. I will gladly do that for our king.

    Breakaway is our other king, don't worry. Please don't kill me
