    The Bumblebee looks OK but the face looks hideous... and that Prime is about ten shades of shite... and thge vehicle mode looks even WORSE than battle in a box prime (the classics one)... if theres one thing I learned from the movie (specifcally Megatron) its that just because you've got a 'Cyberton mode' it doesn't give you an excuse to have a shite vehicle mode with all teh parts hanging out.

    I'll confess, the plastic doesn't actually look great on these. There's a greenish almost translucent quality to the Bumblebee (which isn't present in the Classics BB standing next to him)... the photography lighting is not the most flattering, but still...

    Like Sharky mentioned, the Optimus alt-mode is not all that great... however, my main interest in the Deluxe OP is really just as fodder for a Kup kitbash anyway. :) 

    Other than that, the general engineering on these looks pretty awesome.

    Bumblebee is freaking awesome. Prime looks alright - is this version the preview Cybertronian mode on or the Earth mode one?

    Definitely looks Cybertronian. Prime will probably have a Voyager Earth mode toy.

    Bumbleebee's alt mode is hella slick. Bot mode is looking good except for those funky toes.

    Prime? It's like they gave up early. The cab is a jumbled blob of robot on wheels. Classics prime looks like he's gonna ownzor him and his little hatchet.

    Loving Bumblebee, I like the flippydoo option things on his arms and the plug-on jetpack stuff.

    Deluxe Prime, I'm glad they aren't rehashing an entire Voyager-taken design and are doing the Cybertronian version for variance. That said, his axe so deserves to be like twice as large. Vehicle mode is kinda uninspiring from behind, too. I like the solid chunk of translucent blue on the front though.

    no face plate for Optimus? Would have been nice if it has that gimmick.

    the voyager will have the faceplate if I recall right. As for the Axe, I think the voyager's axe will also be humongified.

    They both look good, and I may be alone on this, but I think Prime looks better. For a deluxe, he looks pretty big, he looks plenty posable, and his alt mode, well, it's his Cybertronian mode we saw in one of the clips, so no surprise- I don't know why everyone is acting like they didn't know it was going to look like this. Yeah, you can see his arms from behind, but I am guessing this is pretty much going to be his mode for only the first episode or so. BB does look good though, no real complaints, but we have had several good BBs of late (Classics and movie), and not really being a character I ever HAD to have, I don't know if it's an instant purchase or anything.

    I really like this Bumblebee... and it looks pretty tricky that the chest in robot mode doesn't become any visible car body panel.. but a tricky piece underneath the car.

    It is a must get for me...

    So far, BB and Megs are the toys for me out of this line. On a Alt/BT/MP dieted budget, that's stretching it at that. I've enjoyed both designs since I've first saw them. This thread makes this officially 1/2 for me on em :)
