Sorry, but these movie-verse characters and figures are just ugly as f***. To me these aren't 'Transformers', just some horrid, bastardised versions of much loved characters. They possess none of the charm of the Classic TF's. I understand that there is an audience out there for this stuff but I'm not a part of it.

A photo of the toy in its plastic tray... possibly a mockup to work out how best to package the toy, as it is still some way off from being released.

The instructions have been revealed/leaked from an unknown source (the person who posted it here implies that they don't yet have it).

Some photos of the toy in robot mode have been leaked from China.

Interesting. It definitely looks nice, but I don't know that it's sufficiently better than the ROTF mould (and it's various subsequent iterations) to justify the price. I think Goktimus is spot on when he compares it relative to price point.

I guess if the backpack on the ROTF leader REALLY bugs you, then it's probably worth it.

The truck mode looks way to long to me. Nice bot mode though. Unsure wether to get this or not.

The nose section is a bit too long compared to a real 379. Other then that it's pretty spot on proportionally.

I think the release date of MP Optimus has been brought forward, to cash in on the movie before it disappears from theatres... as Amazon in Spain has it listed with a July 10th release (less than 3 weeks after the global release of Bumblebee), and as noted in recent posts above, some people have already been able to get their hands on one.

I've not seen it listed at many online sites that I normally peruse for pre-order?
