    The “Season 1” head has greatly grown on me. It’s my head of choice now, though I still love the movie head.

    Season one head is the best. The other head has been in the trailer since I transformed him and took it off.

    Same here, I put it back on once, but that's just not MY Prime.

    I wish they'd done the season one face a bit differently ...it didn't look like the cartoon to me. A bit weird looking and small ...still, glad some people like it

    Movie head for me. It screams more "Prime" than the other IMO. Glad we got the 2.

    Agreed. I wanted to love the season 1 head because I like it better on the show, but it just looks off to me on the toy. Movie head fits the toy better for me

    To me, the S1 head feels like the chummy "goofing off with the boys" head (although yes, the actual episode of him playing basketball and "drooling" is from S2), while the S2/Movie head is how I picture him in my mind as a badass action hero.

    I don't have a preference between the two heads, I love 'em both. Love having the option as they both evoke different eras and memories. They both scream Optimus to me. Which one I'm using depends on who and what I have him posed with (ax = s1 head, s2 characters, battle damage, Matrix = s2/Movie head).

    Man, these two figures bring out the best in each other. They're just perfect together.

    Pinched between my thumb and finger and just flexed them outward for maybe thirty seconds at a time. Repeat until straight! Didn't take any significant time or effort. They're way more flexible than I initially thought, too, so there's very little fear of breakage and no worries about melting or warping by hand.

    coated the Crotch, ribs and neck after some minor dings . Not too noticeable it’s just glossier , except for the neck since it contrasts with the face 3708F904-FC29-4DF4-B821-2E62D25E063D.jpeg midway coating , circled parts weren’t coated at that time
