    No good gimmick like force chip "deadly gas" atomic buttzooka missiles?

    How about Banana ninja stars?
    Banana Cannon?
    Banana Twin Blade(a blade hidden in a giant banana)

    Gotta agree with mizuki088, a giant banana would be funny.

    How is it the the standard BW anny figures look pretty good, but the leaders both suck ass?

    That beast mode paint scheme is atrocious.

    Still love my new Waspinator to death though!

    I really like Megatron, but while I'll be buying Primal, I am a little disappointed. If they had just made the gorilla aesthetic different, I'd love this thing. Good robot, excellent transformation, but the face and design of the gorilla are disappointing.

    I have to say, the Robot Masters version is better.

    Total piece of crap. Sorry, but all you do is flip the monkey upside down and BAM , robot mode. Looks horrible too.

    i just don't get how Megatron is so right and Primal is so wrong.

    I agree with PeteyN, the RobotMasters version is better.
    (fortunatly nicely scaled to go with the new megatron :D )

    maybe if he came with a giant bananna...

    That thing is pukealicious.
    The robot mode looks utterly pathetic.

    I don't usually like ragging on the toys but that thing really sucks.

    10th BW Primal re-imagination

    Yeeeahhh.... I saw where the force chip gimmick went in Megs... I dunno what they wanna do with a banana chip for this one.

    I cancelled both my orders for Megs and Primal at BBTS.
    I'll just wait until September for MP-Starscream.

    ...Wow. Not even repainting it like the showmodel is going to save that one.

    Have to say though, that would have been a PERFECT Optimus Minor update. :D

    I still like the orginal BW Prime the best. I might pick this one up if I see it. He needs some more paint apps like the Megatron does.

    I wish the colors were more like BWR Primal, especially replacing the jet black with a dark gray. The gorillas at the zoo aren't jet black, neither was Primal on the show.

    Otherwise, I'll get it. Unless there are some final toy pics that turn me off. I seldom worry much about proto and test shot pics. The toys are months away anyway.
