    Why you may ask? Well you see, I have been going on various sites looking for TF Prime figures.
    And I found them, only not the one I was looking for:
    Optimus Prime figures
    Sentinel Primes figures
    And Zero actual TF Prime figures

    It seems quite hard to search for figures when the name of the toyline is based off of one ot the most abundant toy characters ever.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I tried to find pictures for the remold of Bumblebee in the full line which proved to be as difficult as I feared.

    Plus even when talking about you, you can't simply say Prime because that could mean a number of characters or the show itself.

    I wish they had chosen a better name.

    Resources>TF Prime right in this site nets you everything you ask in terms of figure news and pictures.

    I can see why it's bothersome on sites like ebay, but most others have categorized search engines even for Prime toyline.

    Yeah, it's a pain in the ass to search for pictures of Prime Optimus Prime on google. All I usually get are a bunch of movie pics.

    Exactly. Put Transformers Prime in quotes with the character in quotes as well.

    I'm still miffed that they used "Prime" as a subtitle. It's a terrible name.

    I like the subtitle, but it is a bit of an inconvenience.

    on the subject of finding toys... I'm sure it'll be much easier to find them once they've actually been released everywhere. Although yes, it is harder to find pre-release (AKA Stolen :p  ) toys for this line than others due to the title.

    I've noticed this too! It's terribly hard to do any type of searches for it without turning up a lot of results that you have to sift through....

    Putting quotes when you search online really does help. When I don't put quotes around Transformers Prime I find a bunch of borderline porn when I just want to search for screen shots from a episode which is extremely annoying. And plus to see that type of stuff in Transformers is well...just not right. :(  With the toys it will be a lot easier to search for them when they are released next month in December.

    If you're searching for a particular character, just put TFP character's name, instead of searching for Transformers Prime character's name or Prime character's name.
