    Just got this today as well as megatron. Is this the type of plastic hasbro are using on all stuff now? I had some doller store/poundland knock offs that had better plastic than this.

    Seriously feels tacky. The transformation of this seems too simple, it's almost like an over size knock off, considering the plastic is horrible.

    It is way too light, megatron is no better either. And megs alt mode sucks. Classics magnus/optimus is nice and heavy, good plastic, good joints.

    This guy cant even hold his gun without the arms flopping.

    Very disappointed. Not sure why but tf prime optimus seems to have better quality plastic.

    I wanted shockwave, but not sure if I'll bother now with the knock off quality.

    Shockwave definitely lacks the bad quality plastic. It's not the best, but it's better than PRID Voyagers.

    Ditto.. This is exactly how i feel. The mold has great potential if it was just painted to match the show. I gave a shot at it and now, i may not buy the upcoming releases...

    I need to start scouring Ross etc, think this is the last Prime fig I want, and not the Optimus remolded one either.

    In vehicle Mode can the truck be made into a foot like mode similar to Mixmaster? I think it's obvious why I'm asking this :lol

    While I agree This one is one of the most cheapest feeling TFs in awhile..I just think this is THE magnus to get, if its gunna be on a shelf. It does look good on the shelf..But if I pick it up..I get a bit pissed inside for buying a $25 cheap ass TF.

    I try to just say to myself.."I paid $25 for this kick ass light up hammer...That looked sweet in the pics online, but after I got it tossed it in the parts box, and then got a free Ultra Magnus when I complained."

    Funny how the mind works..it actually makes me feel better about this guy.

    I think he's great. I haven't gotten a RID Optimus so I can't really compare but I like how this mold is unique to him. My only gripe is that it's a pain for him to lift that giant yet awesome mechtech weapon.
