    Nice pics. Thats a lot of space under that hood huh. You think they could have put some type of filler in there. Still nice though.

    Erm, I think you should convert them to jpg and then re-upload them. As BMPs they are unnecessarily big in file size.

    Is that actually the finished version, I thought thery were going to put some more paint on it.
    The crotch in particular looks horribily cheap.
    I think I'll pass on this one unless that black version is utterly amazing.

    It's mistransformed...yet again :rolleyes:  That "crotch plate" is actually the truck's grill folded down. Some people have been transforming him that way for some reason. Back of box pic shows differently: http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/albums/Alternators-Optimus-Prime-In-Package/DSC_2117.jpg

    Good stuff though, can't wait for him to hit Stateside.

    Yes, and Hasbro's been pretty reliable for accurate transformations on their packaging. *coughCybOPcough* No offense, though, I think the crotch plate looks pretty bad too and leaving on the edge of the hood may indeed look better.

    Did anyone else mention that he looks more like an alt version of laser prime from G2? I can't shake that when I look at him. All he needs are some missile launchers in the shoulders and little more paint. And a trailer with his name in the most obnoxious lettering all over the side of it. These pics are the only good ones I've seen so far, I might actually pick him up now.

    One question: does he have knees?

    Bitmaps?? This is a killer for those who are still on dialup.

    I'll convert them.


    As for the toy@ I'm still a bit underwhelmed by the whole thing. The only part that irks me tho is the screws on the crotch plate.

    They could have say left them bare metal and painted part of the plate silver to try and conceal them a bit.

    crotchplate down IS the correct transformation, as per his design and the instructions, box pics mean nothing, check out the misassembled gun on the back of the box for example. Without the crotchplate down the chest doesnt lock into position properly

    His legs ARE mis-transformed though. Those vent things should be towards the bottom.

    Not that it really makes him look any better. :(

    I like that he's taller than the other Alts, fitting for the leader. Some silver spray paint will fix that crotchplate right up. After these pictures I like him a whole lot more. Can't wait to get Tranemesis Prime as well. :thumbs2:

    Wow some good pics! I think this is a cool looking alternator, now if it had METALLIC red paint....then it would look spectacular! I might go ahead and buy some metallic crimson paint from a car dealer and repaint the red surfaces. Other than that I like!

    Boy, I really hope the crotch peice folds up like it show on the back of the box. Ohterwise, I think he looks pretty good. Although...He would look so much better in die cast metal. Here's hoping for a BT.

    Man, I am loving this guy. It took a long time, but he's definitely grown on me. Can't wait until he comes out here (although judging by how long it took for Rollbar and Ricochet to pop up, I'm in for a long wait. :( ).

    I love that handgun. Easily one of the best engine/weapons in the Alt line.
