    Damn!! Looks like Super 7 is jumping back into Shogun Warriors territory again with a 24” Optimus. Probably has the the launching fists and wheels on his feet. You know he’ll probably do a jumbo Megatron as well. Toy Fair can’t come fast enough!!

    The one time I fully support shampoo bottle robots. Bonus for missiles or fists to shoot at the cats..... safety in the direction of nothing that they can harm.

    This could be awesome.

    Or it could suck.

    Let's hope it's super-1970s/80s cheesy.

    It’s gonna be slavish to the 70s jumbo/ Shogun Warriors aesthetic. I remember when the guy from S7 was making the first Stormtrooper one, the factory took the wheels off the feet because they thought Stormtroopers don’t have them on one of his samples. He fought to get them back on. It’d be cool if he did some Titans in this scale to pair up with the ReActions.

    I’m expecting him to look something like this. He’ll definitely have yellow eyes though.

    I've never been impressed with Super7, so my expectations are very low for this. Now, expectation on the price of it, I fully expect that to be ridiculously high. Subpar7 seems pretty keen on taking previously used designs, throwing in some extra baubles and hiking up the price.

    Here and there, but they're bloody expensive too.

    One thing's for certain about this release: it WILL be pricey.

    I'd be down for Metroplex, Fort Max, Scorponok in this size and style.

    1970s-style Optimus Prime - looks exactly like a swirling vortex of time paradox. :D

    That’s a good guess.

    Hope is big enough to recreate that picture of Optimus with Snake Eyes on his shoulder.
