    Guys, everyone's entitled to their own opinions alright? Nobody has to like it, and nobody has to dislike it. But there's also no need to attack one another for their opinions. Let's tone down the aggression and keep the discussion civil, please.

    Those are the tops of the alt mode window frames. If you look at the top they are separate panels that retract into the torso during transformation. I think the chest panels may still rotate...

    The truck mode looks better than MP-10, that alone makes him more appealing to me. I hope he is full of ratchet joints!. My TFM Powertrain needs his nemesis!

    Hate to say it, but the more I see of this Optimus Prime, the less I like his design. He looks almost anorexic here. Really thinking that maybe 100% cartoon-accuracy is not the best way to go with this line.

    That Hound is amazing. Fucking amazing.

    Willys was okay, but he just didn't feel up to snuff in a lot of ways. This one, though...beautiful. hoping he also gets an MP+ in toy colors.

    Speaking of MP+, gotta have Jacky in anime colors.

    I know everyone has a right of opinion (obviously) but if you're going to continue to whine and complain about a figure that hasn't even come out yet then just go to another thread that makes you happy.

    I thought Willis fit right in with the datsuns/lambos. This MP hound will definitely pair up nicely with sunstreaker/vans/fusos better.

    There’s a lot to gauge from this figure and people can start formulating opinions of his appearance clearly, now. I feel you don’t like his views on it.

    I think V3 is looking solid. Will be a good matchup against MP36. And I’m giving my opinion from what I’ve seen. So far, so good

    Dammit. I really hope this one isn’t ridiculously expensive like BW Megatron. It looks so much better in color.

    I'm not saying that I don't like his views, I just feel like he's just being a little too harsh that's all.

    We’ve gone full GEEWUNN with the MP aesthetic now

    Sigh. I just hope this guy comes with more head and face options. If fucking Grapple gets multiple heads but Optimus doesn’t...I’ll be at a loss for words

    Not sure if this has been called out yet. To transform from Robot to Alt it seems Prime's cab windows fold open as if to access the matrix, but then each opened window rotates 180 degrees on their own horizontal axis. They fold back to close up. The cab roof mentioned by Liampope fold from the back onto these inside out windows among many other bits and pieces. Fascinating stuff!

    I’ve been looking at this figure quite a bit, and I actually don’t think the sound box is the reason for that “backpack”. I think it’s just how the figure was designed, and there happened to be a shallow hollow portion in the lower part of the back that could accommodate it. It seems pretty self contained in the lower half of the ridge running down his back.
