    I don't quite get what everyone's getting confused over. This is a screen accurate deco of Optimus Prime from the Siege and Earthrise shows.

    This should have been the regular release, just another way of letting you buy the same toy 5 times over

    May be in for Springer since I missed out on the Siege iteration of the guy.

    Will check back in a few months when he's up to bat though (assuming he's actually one of the teased releases in the WFC row).

    Nothing about this guy really screams premium to me. If some one told me this was just a two pack or some other repaint I'd not question it. I was kinda expecting metallic paint apps etc. It's still a nice toy but not worth seeking out for what some stores are asking.

    I think that there are more fans of the 80s cartoon than the Netflix show, which should have kept the blue leg vents as well.

    Except the Netflix show was based on the WFC toys, which had Optimus with silver/grey vents.

    That's irrelevant, it's a WFC figure with a deco based on the Netflix show. They didn't get anything wrong.

    \"we are NOT the DECPTICONS\"
    \"Tell me that you FORGIVE ME!\"

    Honestly getting this because of how memorable/ memeorable this Optimus is

    ...and? So they should make a deco of a Japanese exclusive figure only available through importing based off the 37 year old cartoon it’s not attempting to emulate? Seriously what the fuck?

    if you want a G1 cartoon deco of this mold I have news for you, Walmart did it 2 years ago and it cost half what this one is.

    Well he does look like the Netflix version. I guess I need to remind everyone that the show looked like garbage and they couldn't be bothered to use decent materials for the characters and they had zero shine or metallic to them. So, that's what we have.

    Wow. People are really putting more stock into the Netflix show than the 80s original...

    I just don’t like the silver leg vents and think that paint should be used elsewhere.

    No, it's just that you are failing to understand the intent of these figures

    So much so that the show models still have all the 3 mm blast effect ports and 5 mm ports on their arms/legs/wherever!

    Although I'm pretty sure I could comfortably sleep inside those scaled-up 5 mm ports...

    well...it is a show currently happening and I think there’s plenty other toys you have the complete option to get that can make you reminisce a near 40 year old cartoon. This is not that nor is it intending to be

    Putting this in alt mode next to the Threezero Siege Prime could make for a pretty neat display, come to think of it. Same goes for the Netflix and Threezero Siege Megatrons.
