    Then, that saves me from buying Jetfire and gives me a trailer for OP - so 32 is off the wish list.

    Hey guys. I've heard that there have been reports of some copies of this figure coming with misassembled upper arms (specifically either two left upper arms or two right upper arms) that prevent him from fully transforming. Does anyone have any pictures of what this misassembly should look like so that I know what to avoid when I next buy figures at my local comic book store?

    Just picked this guy up tonight, havnt opened him yet but pretty stoked to finally have an optimus to go with the rest of the cast.

    I know there's a leader version coming out that will probably be way better cuz trailer and better paint apps and all, but still glad I got this guy! Can't wait to open it up.

    All I need now is Bumblebe and Megatron! Will probably just buy ROTF Megs for now but bot sure about the 70s camaro. Maybe ill get him as a place holder but im surprised at the lack of 2007 era camaro bees in this line! Usually there are tons of bees to choose from haha.

    Still a strong going line though and lots of time for good ol 2007 be to be announced.

    Got this guy the other day. I'm... Sadly, not too impressed.
    Robot mode's pretty great, I'l give him that. Backpack aside, but what else is new. Plenty of articulation, too. So that's pretty great.
    But then... Transformation's pretty fiddly. Lots of small moving bits. Granted, I've not done it much, and I'm sure I'll figure out the motions in time, but it hasn't been a very fun experience.
    And truck mode leaves something to be desired. Feet hanging out on the back, small smokestacks, and the sides just feel... Empty. Like, it needs more coverage.

    So he's... Alright, I guess. Now I need Jetfire so I can combine them, which was the main priority.

    I've had two copies of this figure and neither has had the window chests line up properly.

    Okay, after a bit of play time, I'm warming up to him. I still think the transformation is largely un-fun and the truck mode leaves a bit to be desired, but on the whole, I can dig him. At least the transformation works. Everything fits together as it should. It's just complicated and has some clearance issues which I don't enjoy too much.

    I think one of the things that's throwing me is how tight his knees are. Forgivable, since I know he needs to support Jetfire's parts. But man, it makes posing a bit difficult.

    Fortunately, I'm still able to transform my copy. Funny thing is, I notice the mistake on the third day of owning the figure.

    Love SS 32. Definitely a favorite. Stiffness isn’t as bad as I thought! Truck modes ugly but overall still pretty good. (Reposted gif from toy discussion thread)

    Since I'm going to get the leader class set, I decided to get a more movie accurate bot mode out of SS32 by completely scrapping the transformation ability altogether. Now mine is simply an "action figure".

    My SS32 is now a mixture including HftD voyager Prime and DotM deluxe Prime parts!

    These are all WiP pics. He'll be getting a sexy paint job soon.

    I use 3/32 pins
    I pinned long haul's toe pieces in yesterday of course I needed a 1/8 pin but I found two of them in a old bachmann g scale 3rd generation 4-6-0 loco
    Now the toes on long haul are nice and tight

    have a one of one g scale challenger and two Baldwin 1910 4-6-0 locos all 5th generation drive

    Note the 3rd generation 4-6-0 was originally purchased for the challenger loco build. This engine with it's tender is 58 inches. 10 axles 20 wheels on the tender

    Those tabs are not used for Combine mode

    Here's a list of the tabs and slots on ss32 Optimus prime that are used in combine mode

    The tabs on the sides of the hood

    The grey tabs that flip out from the grill

    The slots in the blue pieces on his shoulders

    The Slots in the back of his lower legs and the tabs on the top of his lower legs
    And the holes in the middle of the rear fenders
    And the tabs on sides of his hips

    I wonder if it's possible to unpin the lower leg and foot assembly from 32 and swap it to 05's knee

    Working on something for the gaps under the doors and the fuel tanks that stick out too far and the storage boxes missing in vehicle mode
