I considered buying the Leader Prime toy but was dismayed at the sheer bulkiness of its legs - the wheels and wheel guard take up way too much space in both the Hasbro and Takara models. Though I understand that it is well nigh impossible to build a toy that transforms the way Prime does in the film (imagine the 10000 parts moving!), I'm rather baffled at why the general sequence of transforming can't be translated into the toy. How does Prime transform in the film anyway? Based on the footage revealed thus far, I'm guessing: 1. Arms popping out from the sides of the engine compartment. When Prime transforms in the alley, something big popped out from the engine compartment. 2. The cab as chest - a signature feature present in both film and toy(s). 3. Grille folding into chest. As Prime leaped on to the highway, the grille dangles before his chest for a moment before collapsing into his torso. None of the toys seem to be able to do this, which is understandable. 4. The back wheels tuck to the back of his legs. The last transformation seems impossible in the toys. In all the CG pictures I've seen, Prime has really long and streamlined legs. The wheel guards are nowhere to be seen and the proportion of wheels to the calves is much smaller than the toys suggest. How come Prime's legs are longer in the film than on the toys. I have a transforming toy (not TF) that looks stubby - before I jerk out the leg extensions and he pops an inch taller. The toymakers can do the same with Prime. I'm no engineer so correct me on this but I figure if the wheel guards can be folded to two halves and the wheels can be twisted to lie horizontally (in the film, the wheels are resting a bit diagonally against Prime's legs) against the back of his calves, Prime can look a lot more impressive in toy form. By the way, thanks for teaching me the word "kibbles". Never knew it til I read about it here.
