    I've heard the red tail covers that go over the back wheels can be delicate

    Smokestacks broke on mine. Funny thing is that happened months ago and I also got the replacement part months ago but to this day I haven't touched this figure to replace it :lol

    These are the other two places where mine is broken. Seems like I got hit with breakages at all the most delicate areas :(

    I never ordered replacement parts, but once I did all my research and got all the right glue I still waited over 6 months to try and fix it. One of the smokes stacks was ripped out, so I coated it in a thin layer of oil and clamp super glued the heat shield back together with loctite formula 406, and I got to say the result is beautiful. I'm not sure how much the oil helped but the glue didn't stick to the inner smoke stack.

    Good to know. I'll make sure to check those parts and maybe use some silicon oil to make sure there isn't too much friction.

    I have this guy out today as I’m rewatching the bay films and I’m wondering if there’s a way to store his blasters in bot mode. Has anyone found a way to do that? I’ll post something if I find a way but I thought in the mean time I might as well check to see if anyone figured out a way already. Thanks!

    This is the best I could come up with. Pretty compact but a bit floppy (not the connection, but the guns themselves). Give it a try if you want, still adds to the figure in my opinion. The green circles below indicate where they attach:

    Can anyone compare this figure in robot and vehicle mode to the ROTF Leader? I think I'm pretty much over getting this one now but I'm still intrigued as to how they scale.

    Forgive my ROTF leader, he’s a bit of a junker.
    Scale wise, it isn’t too bad. Detail wise, it’s a world of difference.

    Nice, thanks! Are they about the same size in truck mode?

    I’ve only literally just gotten BA Prime today and haven’t transformed him yet. I’ll get back to you once I have :D 

    C42706B1-17C5-460F-A63A-8EE1FBBD1863.jpeg The size difference isn’t massive in alt mode either. Took a few pics from different angles and the proportions are pretty consistent.
    Shia LaBeouf for scale

    Thanks for this. I set mine up a little differently (there are so many joints to work with on those guns), but the key factor of using those fold in clips on those shoulder blades is key. Finally I have a place to stash Prime's guns so he can be empty handed!

    You’re welcome! Thanks for sharing your variation! I’ll have to try it out as it looks sturdier than what I had come up with.

    Does anyone know where I’m able to find one of these guys? I had chance to buy this when WJ was still around but due to COViD I couldn’t. And now I’m really desperate to find him.

    Nope.

    Tbh I’m most likely going to unwatch this thread since I honestly believe that it’s a pointless endeavor for me to hope that I’ll ever actually own this dam thing. Pictures have been cool to look at, but a constant reminder of what I almost had.

    tbh, I’m starting to loose hope. He’s basically nowhere to be found on eBay and the listing on these foreign websites aren’t too trustworthy and I’m not sure if I want to take the risk. It sucks cause this is a beautiful figure and probably the best transforming Optimus Prime figure we’ll ever get from the Bayverse

    There are no listing of this guy on eBay. The last listing of this figure in eBay was in August...

    Yikes. Then the well is dried up. If any do become available, have many (many=more than a few. A few=3) hundred dollar bills at the ready.
