    If this had released before SS Jetfire, I think he'd have been a strong "most likely", but we live in a post-SS Jetfire world

    I completely forgot about this figure too. I remember seeing it around the same time I bought Mega Doragon. Always though that maybe it was cancelled or something. Looks pretty nice, I wonder how tall it is. If it's big enough, then I might have to get it.

    I guess. I mean I dunno. I guess I’m just more into other great combing prime figures.

    Exactly. And a bunch of star convoy options. Oddly a large number of Galaxy Convoys. And the maketoys ones I need to catch up and buy.

    without the movie style paint job in robot mode, i just feel like he's lost his sense of uniqueness, knightverse prime is better designed to be "the g1 bot in a real style" and, this, is just "a chubby g1 optimus with blue bits grafted on him to add a black trailer to!"

    i'm surprised how little I care for the design without the movie style flames... this was a cool hybrid of bay and g1, not it's just g1 with pat lee inflatobot shapes

    Oh yeah there’s no flames. That’s why I probably don’t like it as much. Not as cool and unique.

    Maybe the the flames could be included as decals. I think this figure will work as my Classics Prime.

    That’d be nice enough. But not as good as paint.

    It's been awhile, but I definitely recall a lot of negativity towards the flames when the jinrai based mock-ups we're being shown. I'm sure Toyhax can do the job, but the fact they'll have to may be our fault.

    Wait was that the real reason? Are people really still up at arms about the idea of Optimus having flames in general? That's just ridiculous. We already have like 10 or 50 purely G1 Optimus Primes in the 3rd party market so can't we have a bunch of Optimus figures that aren't pure G1 if at all for a change even if it's a small thing like flames?

    I don't think the problem is the flames so much as what the flames are associated with.

    I don't understand why people are comparing this to the studio series. Am I missing something?

    Because, for some odd reason, people would much rather have the same thing over and over and over and over again. It’s confusing.

    The flames are associated with an Optimus Prime design that some folks grew up with so I don’t see the issue.

    I liked the flames, but I didn't like how they had no place on the alt mode. It made it even more obvious than usual that he had a false chest (two, in fact). They should have gone all-in one way or another and either removed the flames from all modes or added them to the truck too, but instead they've left them on the combined mode only, which solves nothing.

    Because a lot of people didn't grow up with that design, and said design is associated with movies that they hate. For the record, I grew up with Beast Wars so I don't care either way, but i'm not gonna besmirch anyone who would rather those flames not be there.

    I see sort of why they went with the flames as the SR71 inspired jet mode invokes the movie design. It's fine with me. I like it because of its originality which is what I liked about Maketoys Striker Manus. I wish it was MP scale only because it's been my primary focus in my collection (it's totally fine that it isn't though). I still preordered this.
