    Well i was at Magic Clothing Trade show in Vegas this week and to my surprise, found a huge poster of Prime at a booth who has the license. They had others, mostly of the symbols. Did the best i could takin the pics. Lost a lot of detail but it was really impressive upclose. :)

    may be just the angle, but that image looks a bit nicer than the earlier design pic to me. Seems a little 'cleaner', and the feet look a little better organized.

    The gun looks kinda goofy to me though, sort of like one of those mass of silver plumbing fixtures weapons from the MiB movies.

    I've not been a fan of many movie designs, but I'm leaning toward "like" on Prime.

    It's going to be wicked cool to hear Cullen's voice coming out of that thing.

    I am Optimus Prime! *kick*

    Yea man. Wish i could've gotten a better shot of the face. Cause that's what a lot of people want to see. Looking at it upclose, his face did seem hidden. The eyes weren't really readable and the battle mask covered up most of it. I'm sure people with access to the License have hi-res photos of the bots. Hope they start popin up online soon. hehe :p

    Hmm....more damage control?

    Either way, Prime and Blackout are so far my favs....despite the fact that they all have the same feet :p

    Nice!!!
    I still don't see the point of the flames, and I can't work out how it transforms, but that is definitely Optimus Prime. This is a great example of how you can update a design making it very different and still keep the spirit of the character.
    Lots more of this please Mr. Bay & Co!!!

    Can people please quit it with this "damage control" bs?

    How is an exhibition at a freaking TRADE SHOW damage control?

    Honestly, this fandom boggles my bloody mind sometimes.

    One of the better designs, but still pretty ugly, and I don't think it can transform without cheating. I pretty much guarantee the toy won't look anything like that.

    Very true but I have faith that it will still look awesome.

    The gun is a bit tacky though.

    Thats nice looking, see thats a Prime if I ever saw one. It seems that The Autobots design so far look way better then the Decepticons. I still wish they had there traditiona look, but i'll gt over it.

    Very nice.

    I have to agree with Phazer about the transformation scheme and the toy version, though.
