    Yeah, I am offically REALLY happy I waited for the camo colors. This is a great looking robot and he pulls off 'not Optimus but able to back him up' super well in that deco. I still sort of wish they'd offer a unique head just so it CAN be a totally seperate bot on display, but plenty of Transformers have Optimus head so... meh. Small, tiny, meaningless complaint!

    So mine is missing those side guns that are supposed to be attached on the sides of the leg armor...


    I'm leaving him in vehicle mode for a day or so and will be transforming him after enjoying his alt mode for awhile.

    IIRC they're under a layer of foam under the bigger set of guns.

    waiting to see the inevitable nemesis repaint, it'd be badass if they switched it up and gave it black & grey camo

    Im not interested in a Nemesis repaint but I may double dip on this mold if they made a Animated Ultra Magnus version

    heck i'd be shocked if we don't get both and then some, but it does seem TFC has been skipping on the common sense or expected repaints in-favor or some unorthodox ones, i've only expected King Poseidon repaint for like um over a yr now :(  so who knows, the days of OP into NP into UM may be.....dead?????o_O

    An ultra Magnus repaint would definitely fit.

    But I think once I pick up the Camo, I'll be good with this mold. It's a really nice one though. Lol

    And this is someone who answered the poll not interested at all.

    Yeah I found them later on as it was really bugging me. I didn't expect a trap door, but was happy to find it all the same. :lol 

    Thanks for the heads up though. :)

    I just wish TFC will improve the head/face design... The current one looks weird.

    So I just transformed this guy into his basic bot mode, and goddamn is this an awesome figure! my only complaint is the transclearant back of his head for the horrible light piping gimmick (IMO), and it's a shame that he couldn't have gotten an extra solid colored head with metallic yellow painted eyes as a bonus accessory. I don't alter my figures unless it's an upgraded parts swap that can be undone, so no need to tell me that I can paint it myself either.;) 

    Other than that one thing I don't like, I absolutely love him, and really look forward to the camo version getting released. I probably won't display this guy in his final form, but will probably do so for the green guy for even more difference between the two on my shelf. :D
