    Also, are his legs actually a dark muted blue? His thighs are black, but his lower legs look like a REALLY dark blue. Him am Bizzaro Prime!

    I'm so glad they went with the purple body, it gets away from the Nemesis feel. My initial reaction was a big ol' smile on my face. The next preview can't come soon enough.

    I want to see Goldbug. Who I'm hoping has a stealth Bumblebee feel (black with gold highlights.

    Really? I think that Op alone makes the set. I almost don't care that there will be a crosswise mold in it. Oh, nice spot Grock! Is that your first news credit?

    The battle damage is the only thing I don't like about that deco. Still it's a minor complaint.

    I'm glad they didn't go with the expected black and teal. A nice evil Prime.

    You say you can't imagine interest, I say that, if I had the money, I'd register for a non-attending RIGHT NOW. The battle-damage stuff isn't that important to me one way or another, but the detail put into Prime (yeah, those legs do look like muted blue!) and a refreshing change from the Nemesis scheme on one of the better Prime molds out there really got my attention. We'll see what happens as more previews appear.

    But there is one thing - I really want to see him in alt mode too.

    *Le sigh.*

    Too Nemesis..y

    Woulda rather seen a scheme directly mimicking G1 Megs. And I love battle damage--but I don't see the need for it here.

    Robot mode looks OK, but I'll wait till I see alt mode pics before I totally crucify or fall in love with the paint scheme.
