    Mixed Martial Artists are now making 3rd Party Transformers, interesting. I wonder what his fighting style will be. I'm guessing its non transformable

    The eyes could use some work, but apart from that, I'm sold!

    Without an alt mode, his ground game will suffer!

    Oh man I'm a sucker for anything of that version of IDW Optimus! Looks great so far, I'm curious to how big it will be.

    If it does transform, then it could potentially be the “definitive” version of IDW Op.

    If it transforms, cool. If not I already have the Furai model.

    drift and Tarn are the only 9 transformable figures I've seen so far that in my opinion actually look better than the transformable figures that are available of the same character. Looking at this prototype makes me wonder why I would buy it when I already have op-ex

    Very nice. I suspect non-transforming, which if fine if you're into cool robot toys. IDW made the fact they never do transform kinda okay to me.
    Also I'm pretty sure he's using swapping hands. It could just be a style choice, but that's usually a sign it's generations-ish or smaller in scale.

    This looks like a great alternative to those who don't want to put the work into the model kit. I've always thought this design was cool but none of the transforming versions did it justice. This, however, looks really great. The head isn't perfectly accurate, but it also doesn't look bad in any way so that's whatever.

    Very down for this. I don't mind the occasional non-transforming Prime. I've got enough and sometimes I just want a very cool Prime. Price has to be right though.
