    Ahhh, so THAT'S why it looked like he had gold "anime cheeks" in the previous smaller photo; his whole face under the plate is gold.

    And if I ever had any doubt I wanted this, these pics -- especially that group shot -- completely removed it. Gorgeous!

    I like the gold face & paint scheme in general, but that EG symbol is horribly placed. With this & the Wondefest Prowl, I wonder if we'll see the rest of the Earth team EG-ized.

    Prowl looks simply beautiful in those colours.

    Prime does not IMO.

    Also +1 for shit EG symbol placement.

    I think the EG symbol placement is a fine choice.

    Looks better than it would bent across the middle of his chest.

    Would've made sense to have it on his shoulder, just like every other Prime toy that's been made in the past 25 years (except ROTF).

    I think it looks pretty cool. I might have to pick me one up. Anyone know the cut off date for orders?

    W...T...F???

    that is hideous. Blatent 'slap some new colours on and see what happens' job

    New Optimus Prime...with incredible 'Robo-jaundice' feature.

    What is the point of repaints that have nothing do do with anything and slapping an elite guard name to it.

    Prowl, fair enough, looks like the original colour for the animated character and mimics the G1 colour scheme, but Prime and bumblebee just no.

    OK LISTEN UP HASBRO/TAKARA TYPES! Repaints need to serve a purpose beyond just selling more toys. If its a new paint job the character had in the show or film fair enough don't just make them up and say they're something else. You'll end up with shelf warmers.
    People aren't interested in Goldfire Grimlock or elite guard bumblebee when theres no frame of reference. And the only reason fans are looking at Hydrodive Bumblebee is because its new mold, nothing to do with the sub attachement...and kids are just going to loose that bit and play with the car
    Fugative Waspinator (while having an inaccurate name)is more along the right lines but why not just remould the head for a proper Wasp head...look how well it worked with cyberton Ratchet and Ironhide.
    Kids aren't that stupid either
    I realise you're going for easy wins but this is not the way to do it

    Not sure why so many are hating on the EG symbol placement. Think of it like a Starfleet arrowhead on [insert Star Trek character]'s uniform.

    Please don't try to speak for all fans.

    I'm very interested in this toy, and have already arranged to get one. And I think Hydro BB's vehicle looks great. I know I'm not alone in this, but I know far better than to insist everyone loves the toys because I do.

    Beside all that, this is a Takara/Million Publishing book exclusive toy. All those have ever been are funky redecos. (See: Emergency Green Ratchet, Protect Ironhide, Skids & Screech, and Electro Disruptor Ligier.)

    I really don't want to argue.
    My point was that repaints can be cool, it just seems that a lot of them have been hasily knocked together and that with just a little thought they can be really good.
