    A) someone actually wasted their time to email and complain about colors?
    B) since when does customer service ever have any actual knowledge on the manufacturing process?

    I do... but the blue hands are far more important to me than the eyes

    I think the inhand pictures are the finished product, I get the package renders looking different from the figure but it seems strange to me Hasbro would make the artwork have blue hands and eyes when the figure looks different.

    I do love Prime oh so much, but I just do not see $50 in plastic anymore with these leaders

    It's easy when you don't have standards other than "not those ugly ugly bayformers."

    Not what I meant, I acknowledge that the renders could be different but I was talking about the artwork on the front of the box of Optimus. I feel like the eyes are too important of a thing to get wrong on the artwork of a figure so I still think the eyes will be blue.

    Ugh, I\'m sorry, but it really does bother me with how much space is left open in the actual packaging here. Granted the trailer is part of the $50 pricepoint, but it just doesn\'t look right and I really don\'t think that the trailer warrants said pricepoint. That being said, I do actually like the Optimus Prime toy itself (though I still like the Siege Prime more), because it does look exactly as its supposed to (except for the yellow eyes and grey hands, but at this point that\'s a dead horse). But for $50? Yikes. I don\'t know, I am wanting to get it though.

    Hi, welcome to the Transformers fandom, where if it doesn't look like 1984, it's wrong.

    the artwork on the side of barricades box, as well as the tcg game, match the renders and not the figure

    Ah I see, I’m kinda bummed out then but kudos to those who wanted yellow eyes. Tbh Optimus getting yellow eyes has been overdue and it looks like the head of siege Optimus is similar enough that it would be an easy swap with this one.

    Or maybe we just wanted his hands to be blue. You don't have to keep reaching with the G1 insults.

    That packaged pose for Prime is not flattering at all.

    The trailer is really depressing. They molded everything in gray. Promotional pictures can really be misleading, but wow, even the medbay is gray. That’s a real shame. The $50.00 price point should have more than compensated for that.
    This figure is just hard to justify when it has clear plastic holding the arm pins in place, and a trailer that lacks any interior paint. At least it comes with the Matrix, I suppose.
