    Yeah I have that poster on the wall behind me and all of the comics. In lots of the comic pics his head wasn't so tiny (example below) but I think my main problem with this figure is more how low the head sits. It may be sized right but it seems to barely poke out there.

    Always loved that design. This looks great. And looking at that vehicle mode.... Optimal Optimus (Primal) repaint! Go on, guys! Make it happen!

    Make it as tall as MP-10 and give it the same color shades as MP-10 and I am in (depending on good quality).

    Do we know whether, they'll also offer a trailer or just an upscaled Titanium Prime?

    I love this design so I'll be keeping an eye on this as well.
    My nitpick is they didn't incorporate the weapon storage for the rifle that was present in the design. It basically was the same as MP-10 and adding that element would have distanced it from being an upscaled titanium.

    Well in all fairness, no one was expecting this War Within at all. It seemed to come straight out of left field.

    Who knows, maybe the same will happen with Stormbringer too.

    Spot on! I think that's their goal of the over all look of the figure, and I think that's what the comic is trying to do as well.

    The only thing I think that would improve the design is a slightly bigger head, but not much bigger.

    Now we need Panda / Shiro (or other talented fans) to give us some digibashes of Bot / Alt modes.

    I will keep this under radar, and very seriously, just not sure I can realistically budget for it, but I will admit, this is the nicest looking prime I have ever seen. Will be patient on this, will need to be sure about built quality is high too, so need to see some video reviews, and see if there is a figure or two I can sacrifice / sell in it's place.

    Based on what I know, the head is being worked on. But the size of the head is something they have beaten to death by trying all kind of size. This seems to turn out to be the best size to show off the beefyness of the figure. Beefyness is a love and hate thing, some people might be turned off by it, but hey I like this beefy prime personally, and I like the IDW styles too. The beef is just bad ass.

    Oh just though about something, this new Beef prime could be the new Hulk Buster LOL. Hulk Prime!!!

    I will update FB page when I get more image to share.

    Hi Lunar, actually I would have liked a bigger head too, but if this is the one they feel is best, then so be it.

    Can you pls ask them if the head can tilt down for a more aggressive look? Head tilt / pivot would be really nice to have.

    head tilt down look totally agree. hence they are working on the head. with the form providing them feed back i'm sure they will adopt what they can within reasonable limit.

    personally like the head size. I think it works in favor of this thing giving off a sense of bulkiness.

    really hoping this is in MP size.

    It will be MP-08 size (Grimlock), so I think that means about 8.5" ?
