    This is definitely worth getting. He's definitely the best looking Optimus that Hasbro has ever given us, outside of Masterpiece that is.

    So... what’s the chance this was just a test shot or something and the retail version will have the gray hands and yellow eyes?

    Also it sucks that people can’t be trusted to keep pics off of the internet.

    It's not often the in-hand figure looks better than the renders...but it does in this case. This looks excellent.

    Now THAT is the Classics Optimus Prime I've wanted all these years! Too bad there's no Roller. I wonder, will he be $50.00?

    That's roughly the expected retail price yeah. BBTS has him at $54.99 though. I haven't checked any other online retailers though.

    Probably an unpopular opinion, but I actually think he looks a bit better than MP-44 Prime.

    I'm glad they changed the eyes. It was never a big deal for me, and I would have been okay with the yellow - the blue just looks better. I really didn't care what color the hands were as long as they didn't clash with the overall deco, but it really aggravated a lot of people, so I think it's for the best that they changed those too.

    It would have been nice if he came with Roller, but I can live without it. Maybe they'll do a Roller Micromaster.

    I can't say how often that's occurred in the overall history of the brand, but with Siege I found several figures to to look better in person - Smokescreen being the best example.

    I agree. They could have been painted by someone.

    I think I’ll take a dab of yellow paint and paint in the headlights since for some reason that’s been really bothering me and since I will probably have leftover paint I’ll put some on the crotch.
