    Just received my "arriving soon" preorder notice from bbts for the IDW prime....

    This will be my first model kit other than that Mini Pla Voltron which was pretty simple in my opinion. How do these flame model kits stack up against that? The build was simple but the end result of that Voltron was great.....

    Did a review awhile back , FlameToys FuraiModel : Model kit Optimus Prime [IDW Ver.]
    . TLDR version , very simple and solid build and from what I can tell , pretty much equal in terms of articulation with your Voltron .

    I received my Flame Toys IDW Optimus and didn't have the patience to wait so I snap built it pretty quick after getting it. Here are a few comparison pics so people can get an idea of the size of it. Larger than an HG but not as big as a MG. That describes the complexity in my opinion as well, higher than an HG but not as detailed parts wise an an MG. I am probably going to purchase a second one as I love this version of Optimus. I haven't applied any of the stickers that came with it and probably wont. I plan to go back and add detailing and paint the eyes a light blue as the dark blue plastic currently used gives him a dead look in my opinion.

    Wicked. I wonder if this prime has a change in plastic quality or if it’s the same as the first version.

    Very nice. I'm glad they're getting the most out of these models, hopefully this means we see some cool variants.

    I like that they got the blue with yellow windows correct.

    Too many green windowed SG Optimus Primes out there!

    Love the nemesis version except the polycap in one of the legs cracked. 
    The IDW Prime is my favorite so far though

    Yeah, it's just the one (unless there are some unofficial ones out there who do the same). But it's still one too many. :D
