I picked up FOC Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Shockwave over the past week. I'm actually amazed these figures are showing up in Minnesota already. Jazz is pretty solid, and I love Shockwave. I'll probably get another Shockwave so I can have one for my "Cybertronian Mode" display, where I'll put my WFC and FOC figures, and another for my "Classics" display to replace Energon Shockwave, whose foot just broke as I took him on the shelf recently.
Anyway, FOC Optimus is...tiny. He's even smaller that FOC Jazz because of how his head sits in relation to his bulky shoulders. It's ridiculous compared to Cybertronian Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. Nothing has been announced yet, but should there be a fan demand for a voyager sized figure of the FOC Optimus Prime design? Or do other fans object to the new aesthetic for Optimus altogether? He's a bit chunky, but still very recognizably Optimus. In conjunction with a new voyager FOC Megatron, and perhaps a redo of the Cybertronian Bumblebee as a figure scaled down to the modern size standards, we could potentially retire all of the WFC figures (Voyager Soundwave is on the way) and have a really nice Cybertronian Mode collection. These are ideas that we the fans really need to get on Hasbro's radar now. Hasbro has seemed to be fairly generous of late with meeting fan demands.
