    This has got to be the worst Optimus Prime figure I've ever seen. It just gets worse the more I look at it. It's like if someone asked themselves:
    "How can I stylise these proportions so they look absolutely, undoubtedly, atrocious? I don't want any resemblance to known big-limbed styles, I don't want cohesiveness, I want people to look at this and think: "Yes, this is bad"."

    Ah right, "modern art", that's the culprit, I also like to rag on vague concepts I don't really understand.

    This is what Optimus Prime would look like in Psychonauts.

    I'm half-convinced this is a plot by Hasbro and Lootcrate to get us all to stop fighting for 10 minutes. :p

    A bowel movement, perhaps.

    No, Picasso was a genius and had talent. Whoever designed this is only slightly better than I at designing...anything.:oops:

    I liked Pat Lee’s Art.

    I don’t like his.

    Bold of you to assume I don’t understand, because I do, and if you can’t see the ridiculous bullshit that exists thats your own ignorance.


    Look at this $3,000+ Banana on a wall. It itself is a copy of a $120,000 piece of art that is said to be “in” on the joke of some modern art.

    Yeah this is just so introspective of society, it really says a lot.

    I'm convinced this figurine was created for the sole purpose of pissing off the fanbase & distracting us from something truly terrible that's slowly breaking the distant horizon, & we just can't see it yet.. Lol.

    But that aside, I wouldn't hate this 'thing' so much if the waist wasn't so disturbingly small & thin. Like, it gives the impression that it'll snap at any point just by looking at it funny..

    The longer I look at the midsection the more it makes me want to laugh

    Technically all of Transformers is a distraction from the cold approach of death on this doomed planet.

    It\'s like G1 and animated got together but it doesn\'t work. I never liked those proportions in animated but it works with that art style, I do not like this at all.

    That figure looks like something that'd appeal to the casual Transformers fans that had only watched a handful of G1 episodes and had one or two toys as a kid, then forgot that Transformers exists until the Bayformers films.
