    It’s proof they’re different, unsurprisingly, and that’s about it.

    I want to like this more, but can’t get there. Something about those hip panels, and all the stuff lurking under the forearms, still bugs me. Think I’ll be hanging on to see if there’s a tidied up 3rd party effort.

    I'd love an MP of this movie Prime. I think it would be a natural to display with the MP movie Bumblebee.

    An MPM would be interesting, tho the sudden trend for MPs to be going backpacking hangs over it :lol 

    I also wonder if they will do an MPM tho; it’s Prime so they’d expect it to sell (and I do think there will be an MPM Blitzwing too, so a Prime wouldn’t surprise me). Still, can’t see them announcing that any time soon, given this one isn’t out yet.

    Blitzwing is the next figure I want from this movie. Studio Series would be great, MP would be even better. The F4 Phantom is my favorite jet as well so that would be amazing!

    The only SS38 Optimus that is on ebay now, someone is trying to sell for $200. Who's going to fall for that?

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I'm holding out hope that the accessories from SS44 are compatible with this guy. The trailer would make for the perfect update of Prime's original look.

    Yeah, I haven't seen the movie yet, but he looks too blocky compared to the photos I've seen imo.

    This toy have limitless custom paint potential.
    I will not wonder 3rd Party give him a premium paint version, add autobot symbol in one of his shoulders, straighten up the smoke stacks and improve his front grill for screen accuracy.

    Hilariously, he actually has the bent smokestacks in robot mode in the film. I'm pretty sure his robot mode was modeled after the Marmon, but they retrieved a Freightliner and didn't bother changing the robot model as he only showed up for like 3 seconds with that form.
