    Just click on transformers and then the all dates button and check out Prime, its not a complete reveiw and lots more pics will be going in tomorrow but you can at least see him with his cool gun.

    Oh and he rocks, you will love this figure when you get hold of him, yeah its not perfect and yeah it shouldnt be Prime but its still a cool figure with a great alt mode

    Oh and keep watching www.behindthetoys.com there will be more coming

    So, why shouldn't he be Prime? I have yet to hear a reasonable explanation other then "He should be Trailbreaker!".

    I've also heard the arguments that Alternators didn't need a Prime since they already had 20th Anniversary prime, it should have been Ironhide, and that the body dosn't look like Optimus Prime (which I can see, but it doesn't bother me too much.)

    Overall it's just been a bunch of fanboy complaining.

    Im actually digging his gun. Hope they keep the grey painted in.
    Going to have to buy 2 of these. One for Alt display and one to sticker up G1 style.

    For some reason he gives me a superduper giant Spychanger Ironhide vibe

    For 20 bucks? Why not.

    Of the two inevitable repaints, probably one of them will be Trailbreaker.

    I really do like him... I just can't figure one thing out. If they were going to do cutaways in the truck bed to allow him to have knees, why not just make the cuttaways go down farther so his knees can be lower? Oh well. He's still cool.

    he looks almost decent in that 3qtr frontal view. too bad abt the leg joints.

    the mold looks decent enough, but i'll wait for the inevitable repaint.

    As much as I would love the inevitable repaint to be Trailbreaker, I still would like it to be Motormaster. I just want to continue that Stunticon theme the Decepticon Alts. more or less had since the beginning.

    A little late for replying but.. I still think Optimus Prime is mistranformed....

    I mean, he looks really backwards. Does his waist swivel? If it does, maybe a *little* force can be applied (like the Mustang mold). Also, if you look at the legs, it looks like he can do a split and could rotate the same direction when swiveling the waist. Maybe it's just me

    Just a thought.
    And thanks for the pics and review Jaguartron

    Looks pretty good. I like the gun. It may be small, but it's a definite improvement those little cocktail umbrellas Prowl and Skidz have. Looking forward to getting my hands on this.

    He has an Armada mixed with Laser Optimus vibe to me. I like him.
