    Looks great! The paint and weathering are great as always.

    I'm a little let down about how much shorter it is than Bumblebee OP. I was hoping to use Seige Megatron for my Bumblebee Movie collection, but he'll look silly with everyone else towering over him.

    I have had sooooo much fun reading all the posts on this thread!

    This figure... good for the people who like it, but making a high end figure for a character modeled after a $30 toy? I don't know... It sets a precedent, that is for sure.

    I have the same concern. The shorter height makes him unsuitable with other figures. Not sure why threezero chose such a height.

    Going by the head sizes (and wheel sizes from what I see) between the two, the height seems accurate. I believe Prime is just really that short in the WFC universe.

    I swear it is so easy to avoid the dead eyes look at on a premium figure I expect it.

    Or buy the excellent 30 dollar toy that.....I know this is wild......transforms. I know I know, who wants a Transformer that Transforms. I don't know what I am thinking

    Except this one is more poseable than the 30 dollar toy. I know I know, who wants a Transformer that's poseable. I don't know what I'm thinking

    For some reason I just can’t get onboard with this version of Optimus Prime, and I have versions in my collection varying from several series throughout the years. But this one, I just don’t give a flip about. Not sure if it’s the awkward proportions, the green windows. Or maybe, because it’s attached to a show that has poor storytelling and voice acting for the most part. But kudos to those who’s into this.

    Ironically this could've been the first time for one of these super detailed TF statue companies to make one that could Transform.
