    Definently getting the Prime. Don't know about any of the others though, but I'm totally sold on Optimus.

    I like that Prime has his awesome back.shame none of the other figures could have attempted to recreate it.

    Transforming toy designs require more lead time to create. Who knows how many times Optimus' design has changed during the toy development period? Maybe Leader Prime's back design is perfect for how Optimus Prime looked a year ago.

    It would have pretty cool if they would have made the effort to make these guys in scale...

    Well, these pics manage to make them a lot less "cheap" looking.

    My opinion has gone from "utter crap" to "not bad".

    I'm very excited by the prospect of Frenzy. They're all great looking though, Bumblebee looks awesome. So far I like them all, nice to know how big these guys are.

    Wow, they're tiny. Might get Prime/Meg/SS.

    Nice! That's the best looking movie BB figure I've seen so far (and the only one I'm sure to buy), Prime looks nice too. They'll have fun with my Revoltechs.

    They're like NA revoltechs, size, detail, poseability, everything. Might get Prime and Jazz, but they're not stuff I'm gonna kill myself trying to get.

    I like the fact that Prime has the "Prime colors" in his paint scheme, blue, yellow, red.

    Prime looks raw. I think his new version looks a lot more menacing then the original G1 look (and I love G1 :)

    Oh, Bumblebee looks a lot better in pics. He's just badly posed in the packaging.

    I'm looking forward to these. Actually, as a result I may pass up most of the mainline figures. So far I've seen Ratchet, Blackout and Prime at a small shop (along with FABs, guns, helmet, legends, bump'n'go, etc). I saw Starscream and Ironhide the other day at Walmart. Went to buy Ironhide, but the register beeped and the computer said "can not sell item." I was highly aggravated. Anyway, Ironhide and Voyager Prime (maybe) might be my only actual transforming transformers purchases for the movie. These pseudo Revoltechs are more up my alley at the moment, since I'm on a Revoltech high.

    Actually these pictures make me feel the opposite. I thought they were going to be super detail and articulate, instead they look like super-bendy toys. Oh well.

    Plus why is Bubblebee so huge next to Prime.

    Yeah, I'm liking them more, but still not totally sold. I really hate how bland Bumblebee looks with the grey. Prime...I don't know. He just doesn't look very imposing.
