The robot mode is fine but the truck mode is terrible. I can't accept it at all
If you're using the pictures Music posted as comparison, the figure's legs are at an angle. I think that's why they look so short. I don't know if there are images of it in a neutral pose though. I'll double check to see how the thighs compare in neutral.
Maybe it's the arms that are just too long? Even straight legged he looks a bit off.
I used Music's pics and they look fine. The fingers in the CGI model reaches his knees.
The pic you used definitely looks off and very unflattering. I don't doubt there are proportional issues with the figure. I just can't figure out what.
As much as we'd love to see that... HasTak will ALWAYS try to capitalize off of the early hype by having toy designers make something to hit the shelves at the same time as the film in most circumstances to make bank off people who have their appetites whet for a figure of a character they enjoyed in the movie, and to be able to work with something, they essentially are just given concepts that as a result don't go one-to-one with final designs.
Things like Jet Shatter, Car Dropkick and most SS Bumblebee Figures post-SS VW Bee are situations where the design team had gotten more than enough time since those figures came years after the movie's run was done knowing they needed to adhere to accuracy then since they had no excuse compared to Car Shatter, Helicopter Dropkick, SS-38 Prime and the VW Beetle Bee.
The best we can hope for is that the first figures in the line are as close to the final design as they can be without too many excess deviations.
Compatible with the trailer of MP-44 Convoy 3.0
Well that’s unexpected. Lol. Good for them making this possible
Ah yes, a G1 toon trailer for a figure from the movies....
Makes sense tho, cats do love boxes.
It's really not doing it any favours.
I mean yay I guess? I guess I have to buy MP-44 just for a full look
What’s the best BB Optimus available for a MP shelf? The deluge of offerings put me into paralysis mode and I was hoping the official could at least be a placeholder, but the cat ears were just something I couldn’t get beyond and know I’m completely flummoxed as to how to proceed
Well my kidneys were well spent on my MP44 then
One thing to consider is scale. The Toyworld, BMB, Fire Scorpion and WJ versions are all in the 29-30cm+ range I believe. So those options are best if you're into the oversized scale those companies have been making. I don't own any but the Toyworld probably looks the best to me.
The official is currently the only one that will scale the same height as MPM4 which for me is the most important thing as I'm not into the oversized figures. There's also TransCraft who are making an Optimus at this scale but that was revealed over a year ago now with no updates, so it's unclear if it's still happening.
For me at least the official is the only option despite the terrible alt-mode.
Oh boy I wonder who will buy a $200 trailer for this.
Just like how MPM-04 is compatible with MP-10's trailer.
I'm gonna be honest with you. There isn't a good one available yet. I'm not talking about a perfect figure, I mean a figure that doesn't have major flaws. Every single one of them has some kind of big flaw that makes them bad.
We might need to wait a little longer. Maybe someone will come along and improve this the same way Black Apple did with the other movie Prime. I know BA's dead, but I'm sure there are others willing to step up to the game.
In the words of Chancellor Palpatine from episode 1 \"A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. \"
Looks pretty good but, at this point I just don't remember how many iterations of G1 Optimus Prime I have.
