    Let's get back to discussing the actual figure, NOT the reviewer. All these posts about the reviewer that go on and on and talk much but say very little do absolutely nothing but drive this thread off topic and give the guy free advertising. I had no idea who Tonton review was but I sure as hell do now.

    I'm not quite sure how anyone would think this figure is a SIEGE retool. Itching to see it properly transformed.

    Wow, this thing is absolutely amazing and not what I was expecting in Transformation at all. My fiancee is going to give me that "Another Optimus Prime Figure?" Look, but totally worth it.

    I don't mind that the vehicle mode not being an accurate truck, it's still an amazing feat of engineering. Nice to see Has/Tak add some 3P level stuff to this figure. Feels like the mid 2000's again.

    If I had to critique anything here, I wish the smoke stack we're wider apart on the thruvk mode, and... Blue hands. Despite that this maybe one of the best Voyager Prime figures ever. Both movie, and G1 alike.

    I have the Takara Voyager DOTM Prime which came with a trailer, and the trailer works fine with my Evasion Prime, so fingers crossed.

    I think the truck they’ve used here is meant to have the stacks close together. But this appears to be based on concept art and not the actual design in the film so it’s a given nature of hasbro. But I agree it should’ve been blue hands.

    It doesn't have to do anything. I couldn't care less about the trailer gimmicks. I would rather have a cheaper trailer that doesn't do anything aside from being used for display purposes.

    See I can’t handle that. I like having a trailer that can at least do something. Also I’d love to know what it’d do in the films if it does anything apart from carry cars. There’s gotta be concept art for that.
    Well yeah you’ll be fine then.

    I was just being silly, of course I'm getting both! In fact my copy of Siege Optimus is out for delivery now, can't wait to mess with him after work today. Also looking forward to SS32!

    It'd be funny if canonically Prime was just like, "All these Earth trucks have trailers, $h!t I should get one," and then just steals a normal truck trailer to drive around with.

    It looks like a really fun figure, and here's the thing: These days, when it comes to Transformers, especially movie toys, I feel like the possibility of an upscaled KO is.....I don't even want to use the word possibility, because at this point I feel it's a certainty that it WILL happen- it's just a matter of when and who will make it.

    I wouldn't be remotely surprised if Studio Series Jetfire and Studio Series 32 Optimus get KO'ed and upscaled- because the combination factor and increased size will guarantee sales.

    This figure WILL get KO'ed- either that or a 3rd party company will design and release their own BB Optimus Prime.

    But back to the figure: He looks really darn cool, very sleek from the side, and I'm actually happy he's the same size as SS05 Optimus Prime- I think that's a good size for this design as well, makes it easy to place in the shelf.

    This guy looks good enough that if a company upscaled, slightly retooled, and added premium paint that it would pretty much omit the need for an MPM of this Optimus design. It will be tough to resist an OS Siege or SS 32 Optimus.

    Honestly i'm starting to like more the marmon truck the toy uses than the fireflight from the movie.

    Yeah, it's been awhile since I've been *this* excited for a figure's release. Like, hurry up and *get* here already.

    Between Seige and SS, mainline toys are really becoming something to get excited for again. Seige especially has impressed me with the quality of plastics, paint apps and engineering, but like people have said this OP borders on MP levels of intuitive design and transformation.

    I think we have Evasion Prime to thank for this.
