    Now, THIS actually looks good, it doesn't have the boxy proportions like FL or the weird sculpt like Fire Scorpion's, it almost looks like 3Z's action figure. I'm impressed, yes, the trailer and cab still look janky, but in the least it's slightly more accurate than MPM12's frankenstein truck. Though, since is probably going to be threezero-scaled, i'm going to pass sadly.
    Imma be waiting for a heavily modified mpm12-ko.



    Nitpick: they're still using the white stripe despite the fact that is actually silver

    Now that you mention it, there's some similarities with how the side of the truck look (minus faux straight exhaust pipe). Might be just an inspiration tho.

    I just hope they put Matrix Of Leadership in there. Just like the Yolopark design.

    Thanks; added to first post!

    This guy seriously looks too good to be true. I'm relieved there's a reliable pre-order and product description now, so we know it's not just a custom.

    I still can't believe it can actually transform. I can barely see any transformation hinges or seams on the bot mode; it looks perfect from all angles. Paint looks fantastic as well, and the die-cast skeleton is impressive.

    If it's well-engineered and the QC is on point, this might finally be the definitive transforming BB Optimus I've been holding out for.

    This is really fucking weird. At first I thought it was a ThreeZero knockoff, because it obviously stole the sculpt and joints, but some proportions and details are weirdly off. If it really does transform that would explain it.
    I still don't want to fully believe this is a thing. I don't see enough hinges or other indications of a transformation, all while using similar joints to 3Z. It even copies the moving knee parts.
    But if it is real, it will either be the best transforming BB Prime, or hell on earth.

    Too late for me since I decided to switch my "MP" movies collection to threezero non transformable DLX (because of the extra accuracy) but I gotta say this is absolutely incredible. It looks VERY close to threezero's offering yet it retains the transformation and the truck mode looks pretty nice.

    If it has been revealed a year ago (along with the fixed & OS TC Bumblebee), I probably wouldn't have switched.

    Intriguing. I wonder if this is going to be 'the definitive' BB Optimus for most people since most 3Ps will soon jump on RotB bandwagon (and another take on Optimus).
    For me, I still prefer how Freedom Leader looks in robot mode, even if his wider more blocky chest is less accurate it makes him look more "heroic" :p  I don't think I'm gonna invest more funds in this design unless this Magnificent Mecha beats TW in other aspects (engineering, qc, price etc)

    Honestly thought this was the 3A figure for a second, so yeah this guy is the best looking of the bunch.

    I'm still waiting to see how ROTB Prime will look tho cause I think I'd like that design better.

    They took WJ/FS, TW and MPM12 and mashed them altogether.

    Looks great. Since my budget can't handle both, I might just drop black apple mpm04 for this.

    This looks like easily the best transforming figure of this design. Do I need it though? We'll see. Price will be a big factor in this.
