    Looks pretty cool but it's too bad both this and the Siege version lost the aggressive design of the front of the truck cab. The roof on the original toy has a slight tilt downward.
    It's a small but important detail that I always thought gave it a little extra bit of mean personality.

    Also the wings are a bit long and the front bumper is too big and too plain.
    It's probably too late for them to tweak the design at this point, but I still might grab it if it gets good marks for quality construction and transformation.

    He does look cool in bot mode but those wings mean he will need a shelf all to himself!

    I'd really like it they made them simultaneously compatible this time.

    I don't foresee that happening without Wing Saber suffering for it, due to how hollow he'd have to be to fit Prime's arm. Or it just comes off entirely, which.. You could do on the OG with enough patience

    I have to agree that the truck mode doesn't have as much personality as the Cybertron toy...that grill especially seems weird. But if he has good QC and articulation, he may still be worth picking up.

    This is going to look so goddam perfect next to the official updated Armada Optimus!

    I don't know, the original it's pretty damn accurate already.

    Well, since it seems like MakeToys are never going to get round to their Version of this guy, i’m Glad to see somebody step up to the plate.

    Keeping my eyes on this :)

    So I was watching clips from the show earlier today, and I discovered that the bumper on this guy is actually accurate...only not to prime himself, but the fire truck that Jetfire scans for him:

    Personally I’m really starting to like how it looks!

    Edit: I don’t, however, like the lack of gunmetal fingers. I hope that’s changed before this thing sees the light of day!

    You forgot to say "It is our mission!" before the role call, but still, thanks for the reply.

    Without all the individual wings and blasters it isn’t Nova Prime. Nova Prime is pure unadulterated badass and I hope one day someone takes the crown from Maketoys version.

    a minor retool of "trailer" wings with extended storage for extra firepower is all it's going to take. Also considering how it looks like TFRO have some beef with MT they might be prime candidate to demolish legacy of Hypernovae.

    no Nova Prime has a crown, we've yet to see Nova Prime, just a bunch of KOs that don't even give us the true essence of Fig's artwork IMHO
