    It’s been mentioned early on in the thread

    It is unfortunate about the tan plastic, I’m hoping I can find the time to take it a part and paint it white. That will seriously be so much better.

    Just noticed he’s a Deluxe. Would really love this design as a Voyager. Still, makes sense for a more younger Orion Pax type of Optimus, and I think it’ll be fun to just have a smaller OP to fiddle around with.

    The brown-grey is even weirder since his head is cool-grey.

    The color is not uniform, you can see how it differs on his shins, knees, and stacks. Then, on the box, his plastic looks grey/silver when he's holding that matrix..

    So yeah, either they chose a color that will "mask" the recent yellowing issues, or their plastic is actually yellowing that quickly. Considering how many figures have yellowed in the last few years, and how Hasbro has refused to acknowledge or address the issue, they should've known how this would look to many fans. Optimus was always white or silver in those spots... Why is he that color all of a sudden? I really don't think it was intentional, and if it was, what a terrible choice.

    Design looks pretty cool! But as others have mentioned, it looks yellowed already? Lol

    The shoulder smoke stacks which are obviously no longer smoke stacks, just look a bit wonky to me sticking out on the sides like that.

    If the tail section of his alt mode sticks out as far as the stack in the front that is fine, but if they stick out beyond the rest of the side of his vehicle, it is going to take some getting used to.

    That Robot mode looks killer though, I love it.

    Look at the bright side, it is uniform yellowing, so that is an improvement of sorts.

    Very cool design! I hope the hip skirt isn’t as restrictive as it looks here. I may remove the weird sidestax as they look good in bot mode but kind of aesthetically unpleasant in alt mode. Hopefully they’re just on 3 or 5mm ports for easy placement options.

    Can’t wait to see the larger versions of this design! An MP would be pretty kickass.

    Leaker gossip for Studio Series says Megatron later this year, and Sentinel, Starscream and Bee next year. Seems like the focus for this film is going to be the toys for kids.
