    Listen, listen, I don’t care if this could increase the price of the initial product, if I can get a Prime that looks exactly like that but also transforms and has around 30 points of articulation, I will gladly pay for all the extra trimmings. :drool:

    Yeah, but I thought that was when they came back and said that they were focusing on bot mode accuracy and sounds to me like they're willing to sacrifice the vehicle mode for it. To me, for what this thing is most likely going to cost, I kind of want perfection in both modes. IKYK, I'm just sayin'.

    We have been oppressed too long with lackluster alt mode finishes and trimmings. I hear you and want that grade A Prime Rib as much as you do

    Pretty sure they just fold in half for the shorter, round tank and semi-cylindrical, but longer one for truck mode.

    Wow, that is beautiful. I wonder how that scales with the Cyber Era DotM Bee.

    Given Cyber Era DOTM Bee is a KO of the Threezero figure, more than likely dead on accurate.

    Do we know if the DOTM and ROTF Primes are different figures or is it just one figure with swappable chest and arm pieces? I hope it's the latter.

    Do we know? I don't think it's 100% but yeah, we pretty much know. They've shown images of both and labeled one as MM02A and one as MM02B. Technically it's possible that A and B just mean configurations that the user can set up but I'd say it's 90% certain that they meant for A and B to indicate separate releases. We also don't know what it's going to cost except for a comment from MM that the engineering or parts count or something was more than MM01 so it's expected to be more than him (though 01 came with a large display base that contributed significantly to his shipping cost and it remains to be seen whether that's going to happen with 02).

    That's disappointing to me, but great news for my wallet.

    I wouldn't say "shit the bed", but yeah the proportions are way off.

    Especially the head, for some reason 3zero really suck ass when it comes to Optimus head/face sculpts.

    Except for AOE Optimus, for some reason.

    It’s strange for the most part these companies can nail or get close with AOE Prime but TF1-3 Prime they can’t nail.

    Proportions are way off, as is the head. Biggest killer for me is the really inaccurate ab section.
