Did someone say Alexa??
Pure. Fucking. Win.
Alexa TE 01 Neck Installation AI (Cyberdyne Systems Model 1.01)
On a side note, anyone think they or another 3rd party will release an accessory kit for the bot? Maybe side ratchet upgrades perhaps?? LOL dreaming..
Well that's a bummer. Just got this guy yesterday, transformed him once, and when I just went back to robot mode I discovered that I had his antenna rotated incorrectly. They were folded over, and I was able to get them mostly straightened, but not perfectly, and they have little stress marks now.
But man, he is fantastic otherwise! Looks absolutely perfect on my shelf. And even though he's probably the hardest to transform in my collection, it's so rewarding because he looks so good in both modes.
Finally got some Shattered Glass Autobot symbols for this dude:
Where'd you get them from?
@DoodleBrandon hit them with a hairdryer for a few seconds, it'll get rid of the stress marks.

Can you do a pic of the shattered glass with the new head? I would like to know if the scar looks the same in that version? I wonder what the Nemesis head in all black would look like on the shattered glass ver?? Man, it's like swap the colored parts and make your own prime at this point! LOL.
Edit: what a fantastic Brilliant move by this company. Given the bare bones, but brilliance of the engineering and design, they can release it at a super easy price, and thereby allow collectors the ability to buy the variants and build a Prime collection. making more money, but on a more legitimate way, then say MP44 and it's 400.00 Plus price tag. Even with discounts, add back in shipping and you're right back or over 400. So....
Well played TE..
When I have stress marks I hold the part in a stream of steam from a kettle. The stress marks usually disappear then you toss the part in the freezer for 10 seconds or so to avoid any accidental bends. Use tweezers of needle nose plyers to hold the part directly in the steam.
Oh, I didn't know about steam, I'll have to give that a try. . I tried the hair dryer but it didn't work. Although, I'm impatient; I might not have given it enough time. Fortunately it's not real noticeable except to me. And I have another head to switch to if it bugs me.
I can't quit looking at this guy, he just looks so good! I transformed him 3 times last night and my thoughts about the transformation have really changed. It's not that difficult for the most part. It's very sensible, everything has a place. There's really only a couple of parts where you have to maneuver pieces just right and it can be a little tricky. But overall I am so happy with my first 3rd party purchase!
Did you get a v2 with the extra head and antennae?
It can take 30 seconds or so. Just move it back and forth, using a lower setting is safer or you risk melting the plastic. They'll start to fade, then disappear completely.
Hmm, part of me feels the scar looks better on the more rounded v1 face?
So I have the v2 head on SGOP right now, but the v1 on Nemesis, but seeing them side by side, I may want to swap which version is using which.
I'm a little bit lost, in my childhood I only watched G1. Who is the Optimus on the left?. I know who is Nemesis Prime (Nova) for the comicbooks, but who is shattered?.
V3, yes, with the extra head. Are the antenna interchangeable? I didn't think to try that. I'll have to when I get home from work.
They are, I actually just used the antennae from the original head when I made the change.
