    At New York Toyfair they had on display four Mega Mighties - Bumblebee, Hotshot, Optimus and Heatwave... the first two were in wave 1, so Heatwave could be released with Optimus in wave 2.

    When I was little, I had a cousin who was a zombie-like biter. She didn't stop until I clobbered her with a rather large military transport plane one day. Kids throw hefty toys around; it's just a question of whether you're on offense or defense. ;)

    I dunno, I would've loved this as a kid. Big, chunky, easy to play with, still looks like Optimus. I was a pretty forgiving kid when it came to Action Masters or whatever, but this would've been right up my alley once I got sick of trying to transform and move around an actual Optimus.

    I really miss the old Rescue Bot\'s design for the guy. He looked really cool, and cute at the same time. Rescue Bot\'s academy toys for the new design look okay, but the way he looks in the show is awful. It\'s easily the worst design for Optimus imo, next to Energons.
