With Great Muscles

Welll with great muscles comes great drawbacks to his flexibility, FE Optimus is like the He-Man of robots! Only with better knee and elbow joints.

Wait, South Georgia?

Dude, we should hang out and go eat Chick-Fil-A. Or whatever it is that Georgians do.

this is a great figure I was

this is a great figure I was able to get one before it went to 100.00 in price and was still reasonable. it is 95% or better in tv accuracy and the articulation is just fine for it. from what Ive seen of the RID voyager prime its a massive jump backwards in design from the first edition. horrible clear parts and major issues in kibble and junk when in robot mode. I honestly don't understand the thinking that hasbro is doing with these redesigns and prime isn't the only one that has the RID issues Ive seen the new bulkhead, arcee, cliffjumper and even bumblebee and their just as bad. I thankfully have bulkhead and cliffjumper on back order on hobbyshopjapan and look forward on receiving them. but I was lucky enough to have found the first edition bumblebee, arcee, and starscream figures at my local toys before they vanished so no need to track them down.

I will say newer molds like wheeljack, soundwave, voyager megatron(with exception of his cannon which isn't very accurate in design) don't have these issues. So I think the line will do well and I truly look forward to future new designs like the prototype of voyager skyquake.
