    Some marketing persons idea of a neat way to sell the 'transforming' feature to kids and mom's. I'd think by now they get it, but..well..you gotta constantly reinvent this stuff or apparently it gets stale. Whatever... :rolleyes2

    Not fond of the robot-mode packaging. Aside from larger figs (Leader and up), I think packaging tfs in vehicle mode is a lot nicer because it's always fun to see how the robot unfolds for the first time when you take it out of the package. But the figures themselves look nice. The yellow on Bumblebee is a LOT better than the brighter yellow of the Hasbro version.

    So, Megatron gets a deluxe and Prime gets a Voyager. I hope they release a larger version of Megatron.

    Thank you! I've been saying(or thinking) that for awhile.

    I'm almost certain they will. Seems like a no-brainer.

    Am I the only one who just now saw the similarities between the faces of Arcee to the Vehicons & the Vehicons to General Grievous?

    ^^Wow not that you've mentoned it they do have a suprising similarty of General Grivous's face.:eek:  Though Arcee's head and face do remind me too of Jet Jaguar from the Godzilla franchise.HelloQuizzy.com: Jet Jaguar: The Family Values Robot Though it could be me.

    Also, Arcee looks like a Star Wars Kaminoan.

    So, other than Bulkhead, are there any striking differences between Takara and Hasbro's Prime figures?

    Tak BB is more orangey.
    IIRC, Starscream has black instead of Dark Grey.
    Primes's blues and greys are a tiny bit darker.

    I'm also wondering if Arcees Blue is a tiny bit lighter?

    Cliff looks the same to me?

    Hasbro & Takaratomy version for Arcee basically look exactly the same.

    I don't know if these are better or worse, but I took these myself with my cell phone while out witht he kids at Midori Denka today (they broke Street date--these are due out tomorrow). Man, was it hard to not pick any of these up, especially Optimus Prime, who is HANDS DOWN the best looking toy of the lot.

    Bulkhead looks good too, but I don't care much for the rather cheap look of his hands (not his weapon, but his actual hands). Compared to the nice work elsewhere, gloss and all, his hands look rather flat in color.

    Bumblebee looks just like the one Hong Kong one I bought my son for Christmas, so I didn't bother taking a picture. Cliffjumper is different and nicer looking.

    These look so g-damn sumptious and delicious!! I sincerely wish that Vehicon was hitting US shores on 12/28 as it appears to already have been streeted in Japan. You overseas buggers always get the good stuff early! :p
