And that, my friends, is how to do a good review.

-Clear description of the bad bits
-Clear description of the good bits
-Clear show of articulation and the limits
-No waffle

I now know exactly why I should buy this figure. Actually, I want the UM version but still, you know what I mean!

Sorry but the smaller size is a big turn off for me. Especially at higher the prices. I'll wait for a sale and if these are gone before a sale ever happens then oh well.

Now that is a nice OP. A lot better than the WFC version. That bot mode is tight. The size issue isn't a concern to me. As long as it's designed well.

Nevertheless. I need another OP figure like i need a hole in the head.

Well, Optimus's gun in the game is based on the one he uses in the Prime cartoon, so I guess it'd make sense for his gun in toy form to look different from G1 Optimus's Ion Blaster.

This toy has it's perks. It's fun to play with in contrast to the puzzle that is the WFC OP. My only concern with this figure is the softness of the plastic. It's like it's just made out of ABS. It's so light mine already have stress marks on the arm swivel

To those who still wondering to get this guy or not, I highly recommend him. Alot of joints(for a deluxe), solid bot/alt mode, and accurate to the in-game look. IMO this guy is better than FOC Shockie, although FOC Shockie is a close second.

PS : To those who wonder if he'll get a Voyager or not, I think he will. Cause why would they make a Voyager FOC Soundwave(A sub villain) but yet not Optimus(The main protagonist)of the game? So yeah there's a really high chance this guy will get a Voyager class.

I'd rather have it that TakaraTomy should consider making a Masterpiece. They had the Movie Masterpiece line. Hows about a Game Masterpiece toy line. This design deserves a better representation. Just wishful thinking. Although this mold is considerably good enough for the time being.
