    What's this easy "fix" you're alluding to? You DO realize that the voicebox section is also integral to the figure being properly transformed and not having giant gap or hanging arm mechanism, yeah?

    That transformation does NOT look fun or intuitive in any way. And little parts that fall off...

    Seeing them side-by-side I really like how the S1 head looks.

    Probably exchange rate fluctuations and credit card fees.

    MY GOD....HOW does one even conceptualize the building and engineering of a figure like this???

    I actually laughed out loud watching this by myself at the part when the little teeny gray pieces were folded and then flipped up into the ab/sides sections of bot mode; they fit in like a perfect puzzle piece. HOW?!?!?!?

    For those complaining the reviewer talked too much, he's actually answering questions from live audience.

    The Optimus lines are great, but if I’m honest, the musical queue and especially the “I am a goldfish...toransform” (a la Car Robots Fire Convoy) really got me going

    I'm sure everyone's says 'Preparing for Shipment', but you can only see that screen on mobile under the 'View order details' page. Mine says that it's preparing, but on the main tracking page nothing has changed, neither on desktop nor mobile.

    Give it a few more hours.
