    When it said you posted an attachment, I got so excited for a second. I thought you transcended your mortal being and finally received your copy

    Ngl, I think that primes in general need longer legs, which is why I suggested the cab legs, @LeoJ . Pretty sure this would alleviate the problem of prime's large backpack, as even the mpm has a sizeable backpack. Plus, the clearing up of space in the backpack could allow for the buster cannons to store in robot mode, this would obviously require the matrix chamber to be removed, but I think it's a small price to pay for salvation. IDK how the swords will fold up without looking janky and ******ed, so that's out of the question. A black apple style ab transformation with similar arms and a larger head, would probably work wonders for a new prime figure. But the main difference would be that the abs would bend inwards and follow the curve of the lower torso And by making the folding up of the rear end of the truck unnecessary due to the legs being in the cab, you could use the more solid torso to incorporate an ab crunch. That would honestly be my ideal optimus. The swords could do something like what black apple did, and store in the bottom of the robot. Honestly, optimus has really anime proportions, broad shoulders, long legs and small torso, so by allowing the legs to take up the cab, you can achieve a smaller torso while also having longer legs.

    Torso, too much mass

    Legs, not enough mass

    The madman did it:

    Ha ha oh man. Cab legs. I know one time in one scene his legs did something with the sleeper. But literally every transformation scene is completely different, custom made for that one moment, and stuff appears from and disappears into nothing.

    They way I see it, his hips are clearly the back wheels and his ankles are clearly the front wheels. Where else could his legs possibly come from aside from the bottom length of the truck to have those visible truck parts (the only visible truck parts) be in those places on his legs.

    If any part of his legs looked like any part of the sleeper I could understand this a bit more, but they don't...

    Actually, I think u may be on to something. Especially if the cab used a “UT” style of transformation for the legs

    Actually... the fact that the hood forms the arms and the cab forms the legs are pretty much 100% consistent in every transformation.

    Its accurate quite a number of times, and on top of that, it fixes the problem of optimus' legs being too short and the face that his back is too large. The legs being the cab also allow more weapon storage in robot mode, such as the ion cannons coming out of his back in dotm, rotf and 2007. And the Voyager rotf already did this, so I think it's possible if the thigh split into two halves, and the front half of the vehicle kinda accordions into the legs, making it compact and reducing the need for diecast. Also also gets rid of the need to double hinge the legs which allows for an extra hip ratchet. And since the torso is located in the middle of the vehicle without any unnecessary hinging of the trailer hitch section, we can finally get an ab crunch. And the trailer hit will have the screen accurate transformation of folding up into the back.

    I've just received mine.

    Chest aside, it's the definite movie Optimus Prime figure.

    Yes, but it's separate. The default one is battle damaged (half black).

    edit: By the way, the red chest parts should really slide in twice as much, and there's more than enough space to do it. It could probably be easily modded.

    Overall the chest feels overly engineered for no reason and it doesn't feels sturdy, all that crap is just hanging there, it's not really locked in place. It's the only bad thing about this figure and they had more than enough time to work on it...

    To each its own but I'm glad I went with ls03f! Chest and abs are a mess.

    Wow, this figure is great. I bet you that someone will make an "upgraded chest" kit. There's sufficient space to do it.

    I believe it is a ls03 in your pictures, not a ls03f. Can see the difference with the abs :)

    I think that following this topic any longer might be detrimental to your well being.

    The entire chest and ab section should be closer to the body. The red abs look to stick out just fine. I mean, just compare how much of it is protruding beyond the windscreen/doors.

    Hmm, this still looks promising to me but I think I'll need to wait till more people get theirs in hand and see what the whole chest/ab situation ends up being before committing. Though as it is, I don't really mind how the ab looks right now but I am curious to see how much room there is to play around and position them.
