Do you think this new product could be stepping away from what we love about Transformers as toys?

    Man, slow-ass FedEx will not deliver mine until the 25th. Amazon Japan, yes JAPAN, takes 3 days.

    Oh well. I'll live.

    How's the app? very responsive? Customization?

    Oh yeah baby, Fedex hid mine and texted me that even though it required a signature she still left for me saying I probably really wanted it. I could kiss her! I texted her back expressing my undying gratitude!

    App is pretty good. Connects without issue every time. Very responsive, unlike voice control which isn’t 100%. Looks like there is a download section for new actions. I downloaded a few and more are listed but say they aren’t available yet. I haven’t messed with customization yet. Overall I’m really happy with him so far. The dog hates it. The thing I’m most pleasantly surprised with is his meditation pose when you shut him down in bot mode. I have him sitting on my desk in that position distracting me all day during work.

    I only had time to try him out for a bit last night, but I was very impressed. Voice commands usually worked for me, though a few were hit and miss. App commands worked well, and it was fun using the remote control functions to carefully drive and walk him around. I tried one of the little action block building missions and it walked you through the steps well. Basically select a part and the angle it should move in sequence. It had frequent warnings that the weapons shouldnt be left in hands during actions since then could obstruct movement.

    My two cats were quite interested and curious, but wary enough to keep a safe distance.

    Number 1 probably went to a high level investor, executive, or remains with the company's assets.

    19" is no joke. All the falling is no joke either. It's like watching a toddler trying to walk...and catch numerous times.

    "Reboot" is the most annoying part and be prepared to catch as he goes flaccid when power is off.

    They said pulse orders would be filled first, so not really.

    Still waiting for mine to process. They haven't even taken out the money yet so I'll probably be one of the last to get one

    I received mine today, and I am beyond impressed. I was worried about buyer’s remorse given the price and experience with prior products like this, but Optimus is a work of art. It’s like Optimus Prime is in your home, talking to you and moving around like a living thing. My jaw hit the floor watching Optimus transform before my eyes for the first time. Worth every penny. This is a lifelong dream realized.

    Man... I was late to the party and ended up ordering from Show Z... I contacted them and they said they were still expecting it to arrive this month but then I know I'll be waiting another month probably to receive it. The wait is killing me and I'm living vicariously through all of you! More pics/vids please! Haha!
