    I loved the bleep out of his toy. I could live without the mace easily, but I'll keep an eye on their prices for sure.

    If you're referring to Gorilla Warfare, Optimus caught Tarantulas' missile and impaled him with it to the wall. If he sliced Legs with it in Dark Designs, I don't recall as I've only seen that episode a few times because I'm not much of a fan of it.

    Yeah he cuts Megs' arm clean off.

    Shortly before he got Indiana Jones'd whilst swinging them around, though.

    I know what you're thinking, you want to be able to achieve that pose when he's clutching his knee and pointing his foot out like a ballerina.
    You're right, he did impale old chuckles with his own projectile, but also the sword thing happened too. It was a scene outside and Primal was on his knees when Tarantulas grabs him around the neck and says "diiie optumusss" Then the swords come out. so I guess Primal just really had it in for Tarantulas.

    OH GOD THE CARD! So awesome...

    And what else is there to say about the figure? It's perfect. Yes the eyes are a bit darker than I would like but with proper lighting it doesn't seem that bad. And they do light up so there's that.

    I fear for bad luck. Bad luck in that I will get this and MP Thrust around the same time and it will only make me regret getting MP Thrust so much more, because MP Optimus Primal will blow him out of the water and grind him under his furry boot in quality, looks, fun and price.

    Still no clues for what the notch in his left forearm is for. There's a whole in the bottom, like something pins in there.

    ARRRGGGHHHH! I want him now damn it! He looks fantastic, the finish is the best I've ever seen on a Masterpiece figure! It's a shame the eyes are as dark as they are, is that due to the light up feature? Looks like one faceplate has transparent eyes for the light and the others are painted red. I can live with that. It's looking more and more like he doesn't come with a flight stand despite being pictures with one quite a lot early on, again no biggy but it would be nice to have. Less than 20 days to go!

    I don’t really know what's going on with those eyes either. Some of them are clearly painted; the others are clearly transparent with a deep red. I never asked this but could it be that some faces are painted over but still light up while the neutral one just is completely transparent so you can see the light better?

    This might be something that only makes sense once we have him in hand.
