    This is the regular darker coloured release not the Robovision shiny one.

    Why is it lately every series with both leaders at Voyager size make Prime look so much smaller than Megatron...

    That said, I'm definitely getting this over Target's exclusive. No shiny plastic but the paintjob in robot mode's a lot nicer.

    They didn't even transform his arms properly for the box photo.


    Hasbro can't transform their own products. They can't pose them. And they can't photograph very well. Man, their central photography department is terrible. I've only seen one photograph of theirs that has been up to the standard of Takara's TF stock photos, and that was a Cybertron Metroplex photo that they ended up not using for any packaging.

    Wow. Run-on sentences FTW.

    Also, RoboVision FTW. At least for my $$$.

    It's not like Hasbro has a real department for photography that knows how the figures operate and know what a good action pose looks like. They let interns who don't know a damn thing do it, it's grunt work.

    Why in the world does Hasbro mistransform so many of thier products and use those shots on the back of the packaging. When someone picks up the toy and they dont know much about TFs, or found it looks cool, or recognises the name from the movie they will have no idea its mistransformed this will be quite bad if someone just recognises his name from the movie and will look at it and think it looks completely different than the movie model or looks oddly propotioned and pass on buying it.

    (sorry if I dont make sense I'm not good at writing).

    Prime is transformed right on the box, that is his dual arm canon mode, it's set like that to make it look more movie like to suggest his entire arm is the canon. That's also why the hand is dropped lower from view to be less noticeable. If you also notice at the top of the shoulder where his lil red flaps are, they are turned inward to rest on top of the gun to give it a one solid piece subtle suggestion.

    I'm digging that Meg's colorings in the photo. And the best part of this Prime, he can hold Cybertron Prime's matrix in those hands.

    Does a Matrix come with leader OP? Is there even a Autobot Matrix in the movie?

    No, there isn't. I said Cybertron Prime's matrix, as in Transformers Cybertron/Galaxy Force Optimus Prime matrix fits in Voyager Live action movie Prime's hands.

    An example. Till I can do a better shot.

    Yeah I know that, I just have not heard anyone complain about Leader OP having no removable Matrix or any at all that comes with him.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Nice find! I'm still planning on getting Robovision, though. I don't trust the final version to have all the paint apps shown on that back of box picture.

    I'm still gonna get the Robovision Prime, but if I have a hard time finding that, than this Prime will do. :D
