    Default SS-38 Optimus Prime from Bumblebee Movie (movie spoilers)

    Only some lLeaked images from China so far, but SS-38 has been revealed to be the "Gen1" styled Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee Movie... specifically noting itself as being the truck that we saw on the Golden Gate Bridge in the Movie.
    Maybe this toy was being held back from its official reveal until after the Bumblebee movie started in most countries (this week), as it could look like a spoiler... if it made people think that Optimus Prime had a role on Earth during the movie.
    The cover of the instructions were leaked first... followed by this photo of the toy in robot mode within a couple hours... and then a photo of the back of the box within half a day of that.

    Normally, I eschew both Bayverse/movie designs (I did have Blackout for a while but he was given as a gift when I left my old job), and usually also eschew the 'key players' in any continuity (my small collection being a major reflection of that fact)

    ...... but damn. I mean DAMN. This looks gorgeous. I may have to break BOTH my rules.

    The irony is in terms of the designs, much like the story itself, that Travis Knight has proved that Michael Bay really had no idea what he was doing with this franchise as a director. I remember Bay claiming ad nauseum that the G1 designs were "too boxy" and would look crappy on the big screen ("boxy" was his favourite adjective used to describe them from memory). Yet the moment Travis Knight sticks the finger to that argument, we get faithful homages to the G1 designs which look like they're going to be music to a scalper's ears and agiony to a fan's wallet.

    About time we got someone in the director's chair who knew what they were doing.

    This made me laugh harder than it probably should have

    EDIT: Isn't Optimus Pram what G1 Ironhide calls Prime anyways??
