    Man, this looks fantastic. Now, it's just a question of if quality and transformation deliver.

    My God, someone finally did it.

    It's like a transformable ILM render. All I want are classic abs and his blasters. His DotM redesign was really unnecessary.

    The 07 version with covered abs is happening concurrently

    That's the one I'm in for too. I seem to be in the minority, but I prefer the 07/RotF look. The DotM one is a bit more classic Optimus by evoking the stomach grill, so I understand what they were going for, but it just makes his mid section look kinda exposed to me

    Although I will say that introducing the trailer and having it turn into a jetpack and a weapons platform is flat out the coolest thing an Optimus Prime trailer has ever done in Transformers, so if they drop a trailer at some point in the future, I'll just have to pair it with my 07 Optimus

    That's the beauty of this mold. I got tired of the superhero physique that many companies gave him. Optimus was always very broad with a short torso. The fun thing about a lot of the 07 designs were the unique proportions and silhouette, because it made the fact that they transformed from a vehicle to a humanoid much more plausible. It's one of the reason why Starscream has one of my favourite designs.

    Even though the transformation's probably gonna be a pain, there's no denying the figure looks mighty impressive!

    Very impressive I’ve gotta say. Shame about the likely limited articulation, but he definitely looks good. Hope the real deco ends up being as great as this digibash.

    These are just gray prototypes. They barely look like they transform right now, they'll probably look a lot different and pose way better later on. Just a copy to show what it'll vaguely look like.

    Wow. If they make an 07 Bumblebee using the actual Concept Camaro model and not the production Camaro, these could quickly replace MPM

    Same. It visually gives us the v-taper look from the front and makes him look superior.
    Man look at that design. MM has done extremely well to recapture it. I really hate how the 3zero figure fails to capture his proportions despite being a non transformable figure.

    It's like this, there's always gonna be a market for Bayverse toys whether Hasbros current design team will admit it or not.

    Third party is simply doing what they no longer seem willing to do.

    I can't unsee his happy little erections in that side-by-side. I swear someone on the CGI team put that in there as a joke expecting SOMEONE to notice before production but never did.

    This does look excellent, but it's a shame that the gas tanks hang so low on the back. That's the only thing ruining the silhouette for me.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the post said its 2 versions of the figure. But isn't it that you can chose to use a part that has the abbs or the part that doesn't have them depending on what you want to display optimus as.

    Nope, two separate versions. They're listed independently on ShowZ.
