Eh, I still don't see the point of a transformer that doesn't transform. >:oP
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

Might just be the first Hot Toys figure I get! Starscream thing is so random though, is that from anything? Seems like an excuse to make more parts and thus jack the price.

Starscream in disguise is a nice touch. Hopefully they reveal that Optimus' head is really a mask for SS. If they were gonna go the non-transforming route, they shoulda done AOE Optimus.

Bio:

OPTIMUS PRIME, perhaps the greatest leader of the Autobots has grown weary of war. Desperate to end the eons long conflict with the Decepticons, Optimus adopts extreme measures. In battle, he dons the corpse of the notorious air commander, STARSCREAM.

Most of the Decepticon ranks flee in terror from the visage of Optimus. Those with more courage are unable to land a hit against Optimus as he is now the master of the skies and road. When these foolhardy decepticons are depleted of energon from trying to keep up, the last image they process is a blast from their former 2nd-in-command's Null Ray Cannons. :BOT: :CON:

At first I thought this was an homage to that episode where Starscream wears an Optimus Prime suit. This seems alot less impressive than what Hot Toys usually offers. As far as Transformers go, alot of the details on this figure are inaccurate

I think this is a sign. Time to move on. Maybe we can get some Beast Wars minifigs or something?

For the record fellas, the reasoning behind Optimus Prime coming with Starscream's parts is apparently to evoke this particular scene from the original Generation One cartoon, from the episode "Megatron's Master Plan":

Hopefully this is the case and not the Optimus from the alternate universe using the spare parts of his foes as trophies.

I GOT IT! This was made as a homage to when Prime wore Jetfire's body as armor in Revenge of The Fallen. In other words, ROFL was a homage to G1 and this figure is a homage to both G1 and the scene in ROTF, but for reasons unknown Starscream was used instead of Skyfire/Jetfire. In a way this makes sense. Can't wait for them to release an "Ironhide" version of Megatron. Maybe they'll have his fusion cannon mount somewhere on Ironhide's battle platform. (a nod to Ironhide's original toy) :CON:

There's definitely a dead, decapitated Starscream head included in this. This is Optimus wearing the wings of Starscream's corpse, not Starscream dressed up as Optimus.

It's like if someone saw the Optimus/Jetfire corpse combo in ROTF, mistook Jetfire for Starscream, and then made a G1 version.

Either that or someone decided that G1 Optimus should be just as psychotic and sick as his Movie and SG counterparts, and had him kill Starscream to wear as a trophy or something.

Just as I said. G1 Optimus who never used a power up mushroom could easily kick Megatron's tail across the galaxy would be out of character doing a freakzoid thing like mounting the body components of his foes like trophies on his body. It may be bad@ss but really out of character.
