Does anyone else notice that Hasbro seems to be skimping less on the plastic? He's bigger than PRID Optimus, with beefy accessories. Also, the back of his legs aren't all hollowed out like PRID OP. I for one am really glad to see that.

Hey man, ROTF Jetfire and Rampage are pretty tough to transform. That's why I rarely touch Rampage nowadays. :-s

I was initially put off by the cartoony alt mode but I can see this as a worthwhile figure. The robot mode gives me a very Japanese old school robot vibe in its proportions kinda like mazinga z etc. he's pretty nice size wise too

Fortunately I'm content with my fe prime.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

I take back what I said when we first saw this guy. I am liking his jet pack, though I am going to ditch his sword for one or two of power master prime's black guns, oh or maybe Dotm voyager prime's gun, or maybe make an even longer run on sentence.

I want this!!! I want this now!!! This is the first time since classics that I can say this IS Optimus Prime. One small observation is that it appears we've moved from Prime=Ax to Prime=Sword. Anybody know if these are in hand overseas anywhere?

These BH figures remind me of the Unicron Trilogy stuff where fun(ction) > form. Which is cool and all, though I think I'll be skipping most of it.

I was getting the same vibe. I couldn't quite place my finger on it.

I was thinking that too when I picked up Voyager Soundwave. Not the best fig, but pretty hefty. Hav'n't got a deluxe fog since Vehicon, but Smokescreen looks big as well.

Woah... Look like Animated Optimus Prime reimagined by Rob Zombie!
HE'S SO METAL!

I love the Madmaxesque garbage truck mode.
That robot mode is pure concentrated baddassery. And that head sculpt... look like OP is tired of playing nice!

I'm looking forward to see him in store. :BOWDOWN:

What's more, the voyagers are starting to look like voyagers again! :DANCE:

That vehicle mode is awful. The robot mode could be acceptable, but I prefer the other form. This is coming from someone who is accepting of new modes.

Please, please don't look like this in the show... :PRAY:

If the Autobots are up against Cybertronian dinosaurs/Yautjas, they would upgrade, no? And if the Autobots upgrade, then the Decepticons have to beef up their defensive and offensive capabilities as well, amirite?

Right... so you just contradicted yourself. You told him to save his breath because everyone getting the "spike treatment" was most likely going to look like their package artwork. Well, this is their packaging artwork:
