    The prices are lower on these items than Deluxes have been in years, so in order to keep the prices low the lack of assembly and extra details makes sense (for better or for worse).

    The pictures are taking forever and/or failing to load. Can you mirror them?

    Any chance you can mirror, if they've loaded for you? They're taking forever on my end.

    It's really old news. ;) 
    Well, Japanese Prime toys remind me of Brave and Eldran series...hero robots with many stickers!

    It's like I'm on dialup and back in time ten years, but without the humiliation of being in high school again!

    Just read on Seibertron, apparently the stories about the minicons coming on Sprues were also true.

    And for the love of Primus, someone please mirror the images.

    It cracks me up Prime still has the clear arms even though they serve absolutely no purpose at all since his weapon has been replaced.

    The stickers on everything are absolutely hilarious. Ratchet doesn't even have his chest windows. It's like they're TRYING to make these toys look like shit. Even the minicons look like crap.

    Calling it now. Hasbro wins for this entire damn line.

    All the Prime pictures are up. Just need to finish downloading the MP Starscream image and I'll mirror that too. It's almost done saving, and is interesting as it's showing some better pictures of the cape and the mold changes.

    EDIT: And Starscream's been added too now.

    They should totally have used PP03J for that coronation picture.

    Is it very strong lighting, or have they dropped the darker grey seen on MP11 before for a color closer to the earlier MP Starscream?
