    Just saying that this is from the same company that pretty much never shows transformations till right around release, so I don't find it surprising or sketchy.

    After cancellation I wonder if ShowZ will return me back the discount points that I used.

    After reading and looking every Optimus Prime variant, I think I\'ll buy the 3A variant, just bot mode is enough for me, the only thing I really dislikes are the steady hands, Do you know how or where I can get articulated hands for these model? after all it can be swap, but Where I can buy just the hands...

    Lol aren't they meant to release the actual figure first before showing off repaints?

    TW tends to show the repaint before releasing the first. Kinda smart, let’s us buy the one we want.

    Another concern is the front grill of the truck. I haven't seen a photo with it fully flushed straight. It's always seem about to pop off or bent/angled at the middle where the hinge is.

    I'm confused, does this transform or not? I thought I read somewhere that it doesn't.

    With these pictures now I can see how long the legs are in truck mode.

    I cancel my order. That's not my Prime, too many handicaps for me.

    In my view, the truck mode isn't brilliant... but the bot mode is, and TW appear to have made an astonishing accurate and articulated bot mode transform into an extremely passable truck mode. That's a high bar. We've got nothing official that's remotely in that arena. How quickly people on these boards seem to forget these things.

    If this newly shown ToyLab one turns out better, then great. You'd hope TW's effort would inspire a better one from someone, and it looks like it may have - altho I don't think their bot made is quite as on point personally, but compromises do come with the territory.

    Meantime, I'd still expect this one to actually turn up first, and it'll do very nicely by the looks of it. I get that there seems to be an existential element to 3P for some, which just involves constantly pre-ordering and then cancelling pre-orders as each iteration of a character is announced, without actually ending up buying any - but I quite like the arrival of the packages :)
