Its been some time since I watch the movies so a little slack wouldnt do no harm when responding to a user of the website you work on?
Guess I will have to pop in DOTM for that 40 minutes Jet Wing flight, in fact all the movies, just so i can feel better about myself maybe!
Whoa. You need to step back and bring it down a notch, now. I'm going to let it slide because there's obviously a miscommunication here, but I don't like your tone. And don't you call me or anyone else a dick, again. You did violate a rule, there. Knock it off. I will tell you, right now, I wasn't being short with you. At all. You'd know if I was. I'd make it very clear. I will make one thing clear: There was difficulty in conversing here, which I didn't intend. There was no offense given on my part, nor did I want you to think there was.

I dont remember Optimus' tanks turning into his gun, but i guess a lot of stuff did happen quickly sometimes?
I remember him flying in ROTF with Jetfires parts, so maybe i just thought the 'Wings' had something to do with that.. but no.
The striker piece is the convoluted hood piece shown on the front of the truck cab on the back of the box.
In the final battle of the first movie, you can see Optimus pull a gun off of his back just before Megatron fires off his arm cannon. In DOTM, during the final fight in DOTM, the handle of the gun pops out of the right tank on his back.

Oh, I want them all, I want my ultimate Optimus to be just that: Ultimate.

Namely, the hook, sword, Buster guns, Jetwing pack, and the Striker Shield and guns. He's just clarifying that these are not homages.
Thank you. That was it. That was the long and short of it and nothing else was intended, and I certainly wasn't aiming to offend anyone.
