    Haha! Great comments!
    I think that with the chest gap fix and the bigger head from BMB Prime, I won't have any qualms with the figure.

    Why is it that I’ve heard of an ab crunch yet seen nothing on it. Is there really one in him?

    I have never heard that before until you just said it. It was never shown in any promo pictures either, so I’m guessing no

    Got the Black Apple Optimus. Seriously guys, I don't know how you're transforming the chest, but mine fits perfect inside an inner gaps, the red panels are very close to the silver plate... You're being too dramatic about this, there is no "beer-belly" here. There's nothing better than have the figure in-hands to give a proper opinion. I think a lot of people just aren't putting the tabs on the gaps... and doing "free" controversy about the chest. I mean, it's not 100% accurate, but which transformable figure it is? For me this Prime is pretty close to the CGI.

    Perhaps you should make a side foto to really show "there is no "beer-belly" here".

    Guys I have bad news... I just talked to a Japanese source who gets a decent amount of intel on customs or 3rd party figures and I asked him will Wei Jiang produce a dotm version of WJ black apple. He responded later with "No, not likely". I know this should be taken with a grain of salt, but the dude knows his stuff and has connections. I really hope Wei jiang changes their mind about this decision, as I believe they can fix many issues with a dotm release. The dotm design is my favorite movie design of prime and I know others on here wanted a dotm variant as well.:(

    As I said, the figure isn't 100% accurate, but the chest can be fitted better than the people is saying. Compare my pictures with the rest of the users. Tell me if the chest on my figure is so chunky like the others, and I only putting the tabs inside their inner gaps, without mods or magic.

    Not mine:

    Quick question about the mod. Would it be enough to just cut off the peg instead of relocating the hole? Would there be enough holding the chest pieces in place?

    Did you checked my pictures? I didn't mod anything. The chest looks better with the tabs on his place.

    People are never happy. There is always some flaw with a figure, it’s human nature . Most people who have him in hand like him, so I’d say it’s a fairly loved design.

    (Also who cares if people like or don’t like him. It’s your purchase, buy what you like.

    If one were to simply shave down the chest pegs, would one be able to get the chest pieces to sit lower like the MPM?

    You're totally right. It seems many people can see the virtues of the figure, they only see the "non-accurate belly / chest", for me is the MOST accurate transformable figure I ever seen of Optimus Bayverse.

    Okay, I just made a very interesting discovery. In actual fact, the chest pieces were indeed supposed to sit much lower (like on the right.)

    20190820_171340.jpg

    Taking the chest piece apart, you can see that there's this grey piece that's supposed to tab in securely.

    However, in order to do so, the peg needs to be pushed slightly back to line up with the hole. Unfortunately, due to the modifications like the hinge in the front that hides that red hood piece, this is not possible.
