So, the vehicle mode itself is pants for Prime! That's like Armada...but worse

I'm sorry but this is what happens when you design a Transformer that DOESNT LOOK LIKE IT TRANSFORMS INTO ANYTHING. Yes I will admit that Optimus' new robot mode does look cool but when you make it look like he has no visible vehicle parts(smokestacks excluded) it makes it even harder for the toy designers to make a good representation of him in toy form! The vehicle mode looks amazing, I will give it that, but still the robot mode is just ugly.
I am not a fan of shellformers at all, and this looks like a shellformer to the MAX. It almost looks as if you could take JUST his kibble and just form THAT into the truck mode. Save the smokestacks, there's not a single thing on the robot mode that looks instantly recognizable as a truck part, not even his iconic chest windshield! If this is an indicator of the line as a whole, I probably won't be purchasing even ONE movie toy, and I've got most of the last two movie lines. They're what got me back into Transformers!
But this....sweet cheeses.... it's just revolting.

Is it just me or do those fist holes look a little big?

And I'm not trying to be that douche who says The Dark Knight wasn't such a good movie, just to get attention.
I have most of the movie trilogy onscreen line and a lot of classics/Prime figures.
So I for one don't mind 1 movie line with easy as hell transformations. Yes, a lot will suffer and here it's the robot mode with its Batman truck cape thing. But still, from what I see I'm dig it.
Also psyched about the new "destroyer" class, how big or does it have some new feature?
I'll probably end up buying the whole onscreen cast + maybe 2 or 3 side characters that look really good in my opinion.
Let the hating and flamewars begin again!!!

The truck mode on this guy looks ok, the robot is very weak. I am not a fan of chrome due to all the issues as a kid with the toys where both the paint and the plastic would be too brittle and get damaged easily. Also on an aesthetic level I don't care for it much.
One thing that surprises me though is the lack of chrome for the smokestacks - the one place i'd expect there to be chrome (maybe the toy pictured isn't the final production version?) Also, the face looks very off - almost as if there's a face within a face and the nostrils are a 2nd pair of eyes.

Or is it the economy? Different designers? Please, tell me how a company capable of producing wonders of engineering like ROTF Prime, FE Prime Bulkhead, etc... can fall this low.
Again, I have to preface my comment with a disclaimer. For kids, it's perfectly fine, yada yada yada.
But personally, what I look for in a transforming toy is to be wowed by the engineering and marvel at it's accuracy to the show (looks AND transformation wise). The less 'cheating' the better and this is just disappointing.

Seriously tho, I am a prime collector. So no matter what angers me about this figure, ill buy it anyway. But the iconic chest windows are one of the oldest, most recognizable features of prime. You mean to tell me they couldn't TRY to fit them in somewhere on this cgi model?? I'm not a bay hater, I actually love watching the movies with my son....but I'm most disappointed about the chest windows. Kibble can be removed for display purposes, but you cant fix a lazy design. I mean.....I have a optimus prime shampoo bottle that has chest windows......just sayin....
