    Seems like there's been confusion about two entries from this list, which has led to the rumor that we might be getting Deluxe-sized toys of Optimus Prime and Starscream. Well; we've seen those toys already.

    Let's compare:

    There's a separate listing at the bottom of the list:

    It would appear that those are "special" editions that come with posters.

    I forget the person's name, but someone on here who got an exclusive look into this stuff said that he saw the Deluxe version of Prime (not sure if he saw Screamer or not) and that it is a different mold from the protoform one.

    He probably saw the fast action battlers version which are the same size as deluxe figures, yet a lot less complicated to transform

    No, he specifically said that it wasn't the FAB. I'll put some quotes of what he said in this post here in a minute.

    Edit: Here is what he said- (in this thread)

    Wow, well, as a SS fan that's too bad. But what about this line in the listing?

    Yeah, we haven't seen Legends Starscream yet. And neither have we seen Legends Blackout, for that matter.

    Yes, we've seen Deluxe Prime, he's not the Protoform.

    Though it would be nifty in some ways if he was the deluxe, I kind of like when they make them different like that. But a bit too different in this case, plus he's a turdformer. What they did with Voyager Megs is cooler.

    I ahve to admit, the protoform StarScream looks pretty cool. Better than his monkey version at least.

    Here's hoping Deluxe Screamer is the jet as well.

    I would MUCH rather have deluxe sized Prime and Screamer in their Earth alt-modes than those weird looking Protoforms. Those things do not appeal to me at all.

    And besides, gotta have a Deluxe Prime to have with Deluxe Megatron*COUGH* I mean "Wreckage". :wink:

    Do we have any proof that he is the Protoform? I'm just sayin,I haven't seen proof of anything so far, I'm confused.

    The idea of protoform figures is awesome, unfortunately IRL they suck on the level of SWTF.

    I agree. Like I said before, I'd much rather have Deluxe versions of the Voyager class figs. Besides, the protoforms don't even have real alt modes, they turn into weird rock things.

    Err, that two pack with Classics Deluxe Prime? Some guy posted a description of a Deluxe Prime a while back that sort of fit it. I'm presuming that Prime isn't just for the two pack, or at least that mould will be released outside of the two pack, since there's a similiar LOC 4-Pack we're getting that has releases seperate too.

    That one with Classics Prime was the FAB, the guy said it was kinda similar to that one, and also resembled the Leader class Prime.

    ...And now I'm even more confused!
