    Agreed, the red visor on Soundwave looks infinitely better and more menacing. I'm the opposite, I feel all of Optimus' head should've been blue plastic, less prone to chipping and looks better but to each their own. The images of this Netflix figure show his whole head might be blue plastic (hopefully)

    I despise paint chipping btw. It's either a fully molded or if painted, do the whole thing or none at all. It makes the ER Optimus Trailer set look weird with that metallic paint job on the back half of the helmet. Also, try searching for the iPod Optimus Prime in G1 mode. THat monster is basically the G1 toy with a new head and a layer of uber azz paint. It is simply a site to behold. Only paint chip I got is his chest chamber where the metal Matrix of Leadership clips on (sold separately with the G1 Encore Galvatron).

    I mentioned that because if they want to, Takara can do an excellent paint job if they want to.

    So, are this Optimus's chest windows just going to be grey? I thought the people who saw it early confirmed it was the blueish green as in the Netflix show and the pre-rendered promo images?

    Maybe this is just an early sample? It has the number printed right on the face plate. Hoping we still get blue/green.

    That sample is also missing the silver on his face. I hope this isn’t the final deco

    I can't get past those silver windows feeling unfinished... I'd love to swap all the dark blue bits and the center crotch piece onto the ER version. (but then the toes are unpainted)

    Yea, the silver windows are a bit odd, but overall it’s not as bad as it looked initially. I just hope they’ve fixed the problem with the pins misfiring in the torsos for both this prime and sg prime. My standard earthrise one is perfect in that regard

    Nice! Personally am a fan of the darker blue plastic used. BOUGHT.

    It\'s kinda MEH. Bit darker blue than the regular, which isn\'t reason enough for me to get one.

    They each have their pros/cons. Netflix feels more "toy colored" and WFC feels more "toon colored." I like the brighter pop in WFC's blue legs though. Netflix hides the grey section in the lower legs better but I just don't prefer its darker color scheme.

    Regardless, it remain my favorite Optimus mold!

    With the darker colors it kinda has a G2 Marvel Comics vibe to it. I might just get and paint the eyes yellow to be just that.

    As expected, except it is the same red under the same lighting. Eh, I'll pass, he's different, but it doesn't impact in a big way. I dig the his gear friends, but not enough to snap him up too.

    Personally I'm more towards blue eyes, but this is one of the rare cases where I think they should've gone with yellow eyes.

    The elbow-blue is really what ruins it for me. It just sticks out too much. The silver windows make the truck mode look dull as well. The blue on his inner legs is pretty nice, but if we have to trade good looking elbows for good looking legs, I'll pass. The grey legs don't even look bad honestly.

    As others said, the silver windows don’t look great to me. That’s an odd choice.
