    It's another example of something incredibly dumb being heralded as a triumph of culture. Just like Dabbing.

    A third instance of evolution going backwards.

    I don't get Dabbing at all but I'm nearing 45 so I'm an old foggie starting to lose touch with the kids these days. :D 

    But how is her getting her own figure (that I'm assuming not going to be mass-produced), being heralded as a triumph of culture?

    I have no idea what "dabbing" is, and I don't even care enough to look it up. :lol

    Better that you don't. Save yourself the aggravation or possibly injuring yourself from excessive eye-rolling.

    Thanks for nothing WWE and TJ Perkins.

    It's when you're incredibly angry about what The Kids are doing these days.

    Actually, I figured it out.

    To transform into Optimus Prime Central Module
    -The wheels and the front bumper swivel up
    -The front bumper has a double joint that folds the bumper halves over the chest, creating the outer windows. (that's the amazing part)
    -Large Optimus head is indeed inside of the Orion
    -Yes the legs and Orion's head are folded up in the back

    + I think that the head and chest of Orion might fold more flush into his legs, there a lot of joints there including a sliding one
    + Guys over criticizing Rodimus a bit, its a backpack, and its not that bad considering its not like the car mode hanging off the back, Ala movie verse stuff.

    I don't begrudge her having her moment over the figure.
    It's the fact that her "antic" became a "thing" in the first place.

    It's not the figure, it's that her little video became a "thing" in the first place.

    It's pretty much the same thing as that roof just hanging out there that you describe. It is, after all, a pointless hunk of vehicle just hanging out to the back of the bot's knees. Thing is, if they just made it a Rodimus Prime, the kibble probably would have been reduced. There really isn't much point to this "evolution" thing — neither Optimus nor Rodimus's Prime transformations worked this way. The only character I can think of off the top of my head where this could possibly fit is Star Saber but because he didn't win the vote, he's not getting a toy. If the gimmick were slashed and the Matrix kept, these could have been far better.

    So... Are the Terrorcons going to be present at Hascon or did the teaser images lie to us?
    Forgive me if I missed something.

    Has the Hot Rod inner robot been shown either in hand or in the display cases anywhere? Weird that they're showing off Orion in several places but I don't think we've gotten a good Hot Rod pic, have we?

    He's not coming in 2018.... There are still two waves of Leaders coming up in 2019. Takara wants him. This is their mass retail line too, not just Hasbro.

    at first I really liked the concept of that Leader OP, but he's all grey/silver from the side! (i know he has to be because the trailer is mostly grey). Couldn't they have painted the inner trailer panels red and blue?? or maybe at least red and blue stickers. just sayin

    Terrorcon previews are up in the other threads.
    Well, Hun-grr and Rippersnapper. As well as Op and Moonracer. Mostly gray models.
