Great review. Makes me want

Great review. Makes me want to go out and pick him up even more. Sadly no Toys R'Us around here, and no other stores seem to have him in stock yet.

Loving Energon Starscream's Sword there.

Finally a new transformer I

Finally a new transformer I can tolerate. I absolutely cringe every time I see the new stuff from the movie, but this is what I like. Now, why the hell can't I find him anywhere?

One of the very few modern Transformers toys I actually like, cool review.

Actually I found mine in

Actually I found mine in Toys R Us a couple weeks ago. Him along with WFC Bumblebee have been leaked a little early it seems, with Drift and Thrust missing. I'd say hunt around there for one, and maybe you'll be able to get your hands on one. Good luck with that!

I'm not much of a Trasnformers fan, but I just can't get into these designs that aren't their originals. I like what they tried here though, but that's one odd truck. Good review.

I like what they've tried here too b/c I'm rolling in with these. They're sweeeet & they're real alien robots. Not those bug-eyed cheesy monsters pretending to be robots in disguise. I can hardly wait to get this kind of Prime & Bumble-B on my desk.

Great review!

I appreciate you pointing out a lot of the areas of transformation
that could be difficult when learning on your own.

After reading this review and Monsterforge's post about this toy,
I've been looking around Toys-R-Us for one (I should have picked one
up when we were at the Buford Toys-R-Us D'oh!!). I saw a Deluxe
Cybertronian Bumblebee this past Thursday at Toys-R-Us in the
VIDEO GAME SECTION of the store so if anyone is trying
to find Cybertronian Transformers be sure to look there also.

Oh yeah!

My man's not joking around when he says that this figure has a sick and twisted transformation. He was there when I bought mine, and he and the other folks we were with laughed as I struggled to transform him the first time. A lot of the moves are counter-intuitive for people who are used to regular transformations, so it's a blast learning this little sucker. I have enjoyed this version of the character more than any other Optimus I have ever owned. He was worth every penny I paid for him and then some.

It's a beautiful figure at a great price. If you miss out on this guy you'll be kicking yourself in the rump down the line.

Definitely should have been

Definitely should have been a voyager, his transformation is just too complicated. Great review, I didn't even know he had ball joints in his ankles. Shame about his back kibble, maybe it'll look okay if I paint the inside black?

so awesome....

got this little fella the other day, played with it, and I am very impressed.
this guy is my first optimus, and now I want more optimus primes...(or convoy)
the sparkly plastic shouldnt have been used on this guy... it would look good if you get the japanese version, but it just looks weird...

I have decided that I am going to weather this guy heavily(like the game) it will look sooo much better...

13 bucks? you cant go wrong. If you have never liked movie prime(like me) get this guy. its cool..
