Oh, god is this guy cute!
I wonder if they'll make more.
Megatron could hold himself.
Soundwave could JaAm out to himself.
Wait, would Soundwave come with a minion? Probably not.

Is it just me, or do Hasbro and Takara depict G1 Optimus differently? Takara tends to chibi-fy him slightly, while Hasbro often gives him the proportions of Movie Optimus. For instance, the head. Takara's version has rectangular eyes, a flat faceplate. and a rounder face, making him look slightly adorable. Hasbro's depiction normally has triangular eyes, an angled faceplate, and a thinner face, making him look quite aggressive. Is this the American Kirby is Hardcore effect at work?

Actually, no.
Well, depends on your point of view.
I don't think it is Angry Kirby, seeing as Transformers started in America.
This would mean that TakaraTomy is changing Optimus from sharp to more chibi.
Instead of America making Optimus more sharp and angry, it's the other way around.
So, kind of Angry Kirby, but not exactly.

It's not just you, it's actually what happens. But it's not to chibify him (except for stuff like this), it's to make him look more "Japanese". Takara's Optimus heads always seem to emulate the Gundam head look, which makes sense considering how popular Gundam is in Japan.

As for this thing here, gotta be honest, getting really sick of SD figures. These things are everywhere now. I mean seriously, it looks like every company on Earth is making an SD figure based on Transformers these day. And worst of all, this one looks really bland and boring compared to many of the others that came before it.

All I need now is a price. I want the Kids Logic SD Prime, but that price is too much. Would love to have this if the price is right.
