    Sentinel looks great...but wouldn't it have been awesome if Optimus had scanned a firetruck as his new alt mode and this was his new look?

    Truth be told, I think SP looks cooler than ROTF Leader Prime...though I hate myself for even admitting that.

    I like the Scissors of Doom. It looks judicious in vehicle mode (hello Robots in disguise!!)

    Sentinel looks fantastic. For those that mentioned it earlier, I definitely see the influences of Alpha Trion and Vector Prime.

    I know what your saying. It's highly impressive at first glance, but the more I look at it, the more the excitement seems to wear off.

    I may be alone on this, but I actually don't think it looks movieverse enough. It's a design I just can't visualise working on the screen as is. I get the sense that it may not be the most accurate representation. That wouldn't necessarily diminish it as a toy, but I actually miss all the mechanical detailing.

    Also, in the new pictures he looks kinda fat around the chest, and that close up of the head, it almost reminds me of some weird KO Optimus head with a gundam crest stuck on.

    ... I still like it though.

    If he's supposed to be a past Prime, maybe the "throwback" design style is *gasp* intentional.

    we shall see. I'm just glad he doesn't look so much like the past Primes in ROTF.

    This demands a Vector Prime repaint. Just look at him. If someone bought me this I would do it but I'm only buying one.

    He looks so noble and just. I can see him being a toned down version of Animated Sentinel Prime.

    Oh shit, he has articulated hands too.
    This guy is full of win.

    God I can't wait to see (if) they do a Shockwave and Megatron leader.

    Maybe that birdcon that was swooping down in the Superbowl trailer is that famed condor himself! :) 

    BTW, interesting appearance! :D

    I just read all 46 pages of this thread to make sure no one else had already said it, but am I the only one that sees that his shield is a giant Maximal symbol? See for yourself. Compare the shape of the shield he's holding to the old Maxi logo.

    Good catch, i wonder if Bay is leaving it open to a possible Beast Wars Style continuity in the film series? Maybe for a new set of films following the Beastwars story line?
