Following our last article on in hand images of Studio Series 38 Voyager Class Optimus Prime (from the Bumblebee film), TonTon Reviews (who put up the in hand images), has come through on what they said and posted their review!

This review allows us to get the best look at the toy yet, as well as its surprisingly complex transformation. We see the ion blaster included stores between his legs in truck mode to fill in the gap and hold it togethyer. The backpack in robot mode also has 5mm (probably) holes to store the blaster.

TonTon also includes comparisons with Studio Series Deluxe Class 18 Bumblebee, the other Studio Series Optimus Primes, and more!

UPDATE:

While the video on Youtube was taken down, you can still watch the review on YOUKU at the following link: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMzk5ODg4M ... 1d87631d68

The Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime is really excellent. Its about what I imagined we should have got in 2007 with the original movie instead of the rather jumbled thing we did get. Cleaning up the design a little really helped the Bumblebee designs over all. :)

Well, that new SS Optimus have the arm panels like the Classic mold, but they are more subdued. I can see this as an involuntary hommage. I love how genius the transformation is. Is "complexily simple". The overall look is amazing and it have the most realistic truck mode ever for a flat-nosed Optimus.

This one will be a sure buy. :APPLAUSE:

Funny how we all thought he had a fake chest/windows yet there he is, actually using the truck mode's windows.... and he seems to have a good size as well, This is a sure buy.

This looks awesome. Nicely complex and a detailed but streamlined not mode. I also appreciate how much effort they put into having a realistic truck mode. Definitely a must-buy, this will be my first Studio Series purchase.

What does that have to do with what he said?

Also look here for how China is helping https://twitter.com/Manvendra_CBO/statu ... 8909128706

It might not do fantastic but this isn't going to be a flop, especially with the lower budget of the movie

Talking poor of a design in a successful movie versus a design in a flopping movie. Hoping China will help is sad and futile. Aquaman got an extension there and the opening in China wasn't strong so.....flop.

Having had him for a few weeks now, dropkick is still a ton of fun to transform, so clever, so smart, I love it.

The helicopter mode is pretty good. Will probably keep him that way.

He's talking about a toy, not the movie associated with the toy.

The Nitro Zeus figure was good despite being in the toyline for that movie so what does your point have to do with anything.

Movie doesn't need to do good for the toy to be good.

"Ah this Optimus toy is well articulated and designed but it's such a bad figure because the movie did bad"

What logic is that?

So, trying to keep this thread on topic, the vehicle mode for new prime is really bugging me, something to do with the proportions of the grill compared to the windows feels off; is that reflective of flat-faced trucks from the 80's? I think that would go a ways towards making me like this design more, cuz it's really putting me off

His saying of the 07 design being bad is obviously wrong as people enjoyed that design.

FYI The movie already made back its production cost and then some (As of Jan 4th $196.6M worldwide over a $135M budget), so it's not a flop in the slightest. There have been much worse.

Back to the toys:

A 60 million profit is nothing when you factor in marketing and reshoots so yes it's a flop.

how about you actually become patient and wait more than at the very least a month to determine if its a flop or not.

You know what would be awesome? If it turned out Jetfire could combine with #38, imagine if that's who the chest piece came for... :-? Now this leaves AoE with no prime presentation in the Studio Series line, wonder how long that'll last.

On the topic of the Studio Series toys, please. Take the Bumblebee movie talk to that thread.

anyway:

while i doubt it, it would be cool.

I'm also super glad at how long the line has lasted and appears to be planned to last. It's pretty awesome to have so many new movie figures.
