    We were in sync. Lol. I would love any unique color scheme out of this mold. As much as I want it, I just don’t like this design’s color scheme, and Noir will always be my Nemesis.

    it's on the more advanced side of the reformatted line, but still in that range. the sample I have isn't final so I can't completely speak to how the final product will feel.

    Can’t speak for Optus as I don’t have mine yet, but Reformatted as a line has the most fun transformations of any 3P line out there IMO.

    Yeah. Always wanted to get a nemesis, but by the time I got into collecting, they were pretty much gone. And yeah, the color scheme hasn't always been my thing on optimus

    to each their own. I just disagree with your view. Seraphicus core does not merit a Prima to me. Thats just nova without his armor. Movie Protoform Optimus is more of a Prima than that figure.

    I'm not sure when I might get my Optus. Maybe end of this month or the start of February. But I do want to ask, since I can't quite tell, but how tall and wide is he? Every time I see a picture of him, I'm imagining him to be about the size of Generation Toy's OP.EX figure. I just checked to see he stands almost 8 inches tall, but would you say that makes him stand out in among the first IDW-style MMC toys and official toys, or does he fit in well with that kind of collection? Also, since idk if someone has tested it yet, can he do the Iron Man landing pose?

    He's designed to fit in with MMC's other IDW reformatted toys. Tyrantatron is 8 inches tall too. Tarn and the other DJD are scaled to Optus. Same with MMC's Hot Rod and Getaway.

    And yes he can do the Iron Man pose. I haven't seen it but I'm confident.

    Anyone have photos of what the crazy poses look like from the back? I'm curious if there's any sculpt breaking to get the super intense ab-crunches.

    Planet Steel Express is shipping this week. That means retailers will be getting their stock shipped this week too. If they get their freight by air we may see it at retailers next week at the earliest.

    Yep! Since I always only order from PSExpress, I forgot to take that into account.
    Guess folks like BBTS will ship in several weeks from now...seeing how it was going with Tortor and others.

    Yeah, when the first people overseas start receiving their figures in-hand via PSX, that's probably about when the domestic retailers are starting to receive their stock as well. And then you've got to wait for them to inspect and inventory their stock and then allocate it.

    Yea his post is why I asked, I know most get it from planetsteelexpress and get it faster. But was just wondering how long until the retailers in the states get him in.

    Got my Pexus coming from PSX as well, so hoping to see him before end of month! As for BBTS, a family member pre-ordered Vos from them for me as a Christmas gift (which was awesome) but I'm not expecting to see that figure till May.
