    Some call it a “mash up”. Others call it shameless self promotion.

    I wonder if the the included Amazon packages come with battle damage, i.e, look like they were drop kicked by the delivery driver?

    I'm suddenly relieved that Road Rage doesn't have giant Target race car livery all over her!

    Comes with that fresh "I peed in a bottle to deliver your package that was handled by someone else who peed in a bottle to meet metrics to get it to you on time." Smell.

    Oh boy! I bey they're shaking in their boots!

    EDIT: I should clarify. All of the angry posts in the world won't mean a thing if people are still holding Prime accounts and ordering every other figure from them (see: Prowl/Ironhide)

    And maybe that Venn diagram isn't a circle, but in this thread it's certainly there. In which case, it's not really all that principled a stance. You can say you don't want the toy without wrapping it in feux outrage.

    SS32 transforms in 37 steps and would look closer to the volvo, but no matrix

    Now YOU can inflict oppressive work environments upon underpaid employees with your very own Amazon-themed Optimus Prime!

    Don't you just love using a character who represents freedom from subjugation to promote one of the worst companies to work for in the US? Guess unions and worker rights aren't in this Prime's vocabulary.

    The only way I would be interested was if it was basically just the Ultra Magnus inner robot color scheme on Prime, and all of the Amazon livery is relegated to the trailer. At least they're making the decision easy, from the sounds of it.

    Don't forget making smaller shop all go out of business, combined with government action but you can't say that but fuck it I'll take the warning because I don't care anymore.

    The chest of SS32 will need some remolding, and they could use that to add Matrix compatibility. I could see them using this mold.

    As much as I hate Amazon's oppressive business practices, I have to admit I'm a sucker for a white Optimus/Ultra Magnus. This one might be tempting.

    I get all business do scummy shit, but Amazon's wage cage and piss bottles stories are on a whole other level. That and they spent the last year plus fucking everyone's business.

    Looking forward to this. Though I’d much much rather have a Pepsi Prime.

    Pepsi Prime is a lot easier to make a custom of from the ER/Kingdom mold, at least.
