    Soo... given what we've seen recently, will Hasbro now say that EVERY movie toy is 'inspired by' the movie designs? :p

    Those pics are less than flattering. I like how the flames come out the back in pod mode, but they look super stupid as missles/guns.

    I like Prime. It’s cool to see the influences of the other series on this version (Primal's feet, Cybertron Prime's chest, etc.). And as far as Starscream goes, I like this toy better then the Voyager one with the Earth mode. I'll probably be using this SS for my movie Decepticon forces.

    i actually really like these, and thingk they're cool in their transtechy weirdness. Love the 'Primal' Vibe off Optimus...

    Plus, Starscreams bot mode is about 1000x better than his actual movie toy.

    but Flame missiles are ALWAYS lame, and those ones are about the lamest yet!

    Meh, but I'll most likely pick these up as hysterical, er, historical pieces. At least the price isn't bad. My Transformers need something to laugh at anyway. :lol

    Wait, so Starscream goes from a well proportioned robot in his Cybertronian form to a stumpy Chickenhawk/Gorrila bot in his Earth form?

    I think someone got gipped. No wonder he hates this planet.

    :p 

    Silly designs FTL.

    I believe the flames are for decoration only. In the first pics of these toys that we saw, Starscream had a normal long missile in addition to his flame. Prime didn't, however.

    I have to agree about Starscream's bot mode. the actual movie toy looks like he hit the gym and the creatine... and the steroids.

    RID prowl had cool flame missiles. That being said, these are not cool flame missiles!
