Incredible amount of articulation
The fact that it has a chest you can open to reveal a (non-removable) Matrix
However there have been complaints;
Horrible colour scheme
Not enough paint apps
Horrible looking head
Horrible looking hands
Flames (shall they burn in hell)
Do you want this toy but feel like a few of the above mentioned flaws should be corrected then, well you might have your wish come true!
A post over at HK-TF.com's forum gives us a look at what might be an upcoming 3rd party product meant for "completing" G2 Optimus Prime. It's currently unknown which company will be producing this set.
For simplicity's sake we'll just pretend that this is in fact an upcoming product. What we can tell from the images the set comes with;
A new sword
Possibly new hands (the position of them in the images makes it hard to tell if they are new or if it's just an optical illusion)
Oh and a trailer which can turn into a battle station and combine with Optimus Prime
The trailer looks pretty close to that of the original G2 Laser Optimus Prime figure, but the silhouettes of both modes do reveal a few differences.
We have mirrored all images, however you can click here and see the original post over at HK-TF.com.

I think Hasbro will release the repaint as Nemesis Prime since we have the Scourge name being used already.

it's supposed to do that. Think of it more like an exo-suit.

then we're presented with the possibility of having a bigger one... among other things...
My wallet weeps.

It's just a simple deluxe class figure. Keep the fixes simple and stop adding crap that's going to jack it up out of someones price range.
Good grief, if I wanted to be teased and then horribly disappointed I'd hook back up with my ex-girlfriend...

Hopefully whoever is behind this is of similar quality. I can't tell from just the silhouette whether or not I like it. Looks top heavy.

I may have to get 2 Primes now, one to use as is and one for this upgrade.
