    we got some connection problem to tfw2005.com recently in China,maybe our gov banned some IP range in US and unfortunately tfw2005.com is in it....
    so I can only visit tfw2005.com via proxy or torpark,but there always some problems...

    Uh, that looks...I don't know what to say. Hope to see better quality pictures soon.

    And I hope you'll get easier access to these boards soon. That IP ban sucks.

    All-new design, so not an Robotmasters retool. Transformation is similar to regular big Classics Prime in that the upper torso windows rotates around.

    This will look better (obviously) without the Hasbro Security paint on his face. I believe his legs collapse in, like most other Primes.

    .....

    can they not just make ONE FUCKING TRUCK MODE LOOK RIGHT... I mean seriously.

    back inthe 80's, they got it spot on, but now I think were at the 5th different mold for a G1 styled cab, and not one looks anywhere remotely good, in truck mode.

    Not too bad. He's got that stupid boob hanging out further than the torso thing in truck mode. The gun becoming a weapon platform is pretty swanky though. I kind of like him, all things considered. I like the main one better, but I'll probably buy this one too. I wish it was November, I'm ready for Classics dammit!

    Slightly better than the RM version...but only slightly. Truck mode is still ugly as sin.

    I love the robot mode. The vehicle mode isn't so good, but it's better than RM and HBS Prime truck modes. At least there's no gaps.

    It definitely took some design cues from RM Prime, but it seems like they improved on most of that toy's failings. And the legs look like they definitely collapse over the thighs for truck mode.

    I'll definitely be buying this 2-pack.

    The emphasis recently has been on the robot mode and articulation. That wasn't the case in the 80's.

    QFT and my thoughts exactly. After all this time, you'd think Has/Tak-Tomy would have figured out by now that fans don't like visable heads in alt modes. Is the folding-hide-away-head becomming a lost art?

    I'll buy it.


    I have a feeling Optimus Prime will be whored out as much as Darth Vader in the SW line.

    Between RM, THS, and this, I'd say this has the best truck mode (that's not saying much); but the robot mode, in my opinion, would be #2 in that trio of Primes, behind THS-02.

    Not great, but not bad.

    It's like someone looked at the Robot Masters version, drew it from memory months later, and then designed a toy based on that drawing!

    Seriously! If you aren't going to fix the short comings of the Robot Masters mold, then just release the Robot Masters mold! It still has the same crappy truck mode, exposed head in alt mode, and now: a weird bumper and extra silly bits on the knees!

    At least they DID fix the gap that the truck mode. Hopefully his head is cool. I can't tell right now.

    ZOMG HiS fACe!!! Wut DId TheY DO TO HIz FAceE?!?!!!one!!? ItZ YelLO!!!

    *ahem*

    Thought I'd get that out of the way for the thread. Now nobody else will have to do it, right?

    Anyway, speaking of his face, his eyes look to be a bit proportionally bigger than most versions of Prime. I like it.

    Are all these protruding windows in truck modes the result of the massive cries of "fat" regarding Energon OP? Who knows? Bot mode looks very good, at least.

    I'm not sure on the gun. Looks like he swiped a GIJoe accessory, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I just think the "gunner station" configuration looks a bit iffy. The handheld configuration looks like a Tommy gun, though, which is cool.

    Bottom line, I'll be getting this 2-pack, I'm sure. I REALLY like the Megs, and Prime here is more than passable.

    Pretty cool, looks better than THS and RM versions. Love the sweet gun.
