Be honest: are you guys disliking him because you were hoping for a Wingblade version, and are looking for faults to justify the dislike? Just curious.
I can't speak for anyone else but I don't dislike the figure, though I don't like it either. The Wingblade version of TFA OP also has nothing to do with my perspective on this figure. I think my post clearly illustrated my criticism of the figure's visual design with respect to the use of colours.
It's not a matter of having to look for faults when the only fault of this repaint is glaringly obvious. Both in alt and bot modes, the figure is largely black with some red splashed on the upper portion and some gold and silver here and there. The Galaxy Force Optimus Prime figure has the same problems with colour arrangement. Both repaints have out of place bits of blue colouring(GF OP has blue on its shins while TFA EG OP has blue plastic for the windshield).
My guess for this choice of colour design and placement is that it's partly a nod to the GF OP repaint.
