    Agreed! I'm quite taken by them (BBM/ROTB Prime and Megatron). After painting up my ROTB Optimus, he is pretty damn amazing too. These guys are going to lead my Live action SS/Siege (sieges extra gribble makes them work together) toy shelf until ROTB2.

    I really want them to do one of his unused military truck design for ROTB.

    This is one of the greatest figures ever made. And I’m being serious. The colors, mold, size, pose-ability…it has it all! If anyone complains about the alt mode, please send me a picture of this figure on your shelf in vehicle mode. With a robot mode as good as this, it would be a crime against the entire Geek-dom to not show it off.

    -What's that? No one displays them in vehicle mode??

    Exactly.

    Not sure what you're talking about, but one reason people like Transformers is because they can transform into a cool alt mode. I like my figures to look good in both modes, rather than the vehicle just being an afterthought.

    And yes, my figures are displayed in alt mode around half the time.

    It’s these 2 separate panels that almost link together but not quite, and it’s jarring to see on an otherwise well-designed figure that has a straightforward, streamlined feel to it where most of the visual design elements connect and build upon each other in impressive ways. Normally, I’m not bothered by action figure crotches - this is the rare exception to the rule.

    I think crotch area looks fine, it’s definitely different and I think it adds to the design in a positive way. This figure looks fantastic. Whoever decided to not put this on screen because of Michael bay deserves a solid kick in the nuts.

    Actually, Michael Bay in the position of producer actively helped in giving Travis Knight the creative freedom he needed for the Bumblebee Movie. I think the issue moreso came down to budget iirc.

    This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think his crotch design looks ugly.

    Need some silver coloring to break that big crotch chunk. Unfortunately, my sliver paint markers probably won’t match.
