    I'm so confused. G1 truck colours, ugly robot colours.

    While I love the colors in semi form, it's a lot of red in bot mode. I'll have to see him in person before I make a decision.

    Doesn't work. Way too much red in robot mode. Pass.

    I'd much rather see Laser Prime done in G1 colors, this to my astonishment has never been done officially.

    I used to be so excited for this mold but after having it and then having leader prime, does nothing for me. Dont care about the colors.. fix the mold.

    I'm just not liking any of the "OMG G1!!!11@" repaints of the movie figures at all, except maybe that Jazz repaint, but that's only because the regular one was so plain to begin with.

    Agreed, the Jazz repaint was a welcome improvement, as for the rest...well it seems to me that the vehicle modes are more attractive then the robot modes. Prime is too red, Ratchet just looks werid with that long red strip on his face, and starscream...well...he looks ok just not as good as he could have been. I would much prefer more investments made into the premium line instead of the G1 color line...speaking of which, where is the rest of the premium edition toys anyways?

    Looks okay. Truck mode's better than 'bot mode IMO.

    In this case, I guess so. :D 

    If you movie-to-G1 folks dig this, more power to you. I'll leave it on the shelf for you to pick up. ^_^

    I don't think a lack of flames is to blame for the bot mode looking shit, some of the parts, like the insides of the legs and all the silver on the chest, could be different colors and not distract from the vehicle mode, and make the robot mode look better at the same time

    No. It's just the way that the thing transforms...
    It's not designed for G1 coloration.

    How long are they gonna milk these things anyways?
    Isn't it time to start pushing TF Animated heavily?

    Interesting that after all the comments on Jazz's bunny ears, Starscream got them too in his recolor version...

    (I understand that the remold was actually given to Thundercracker, and G1 SS was a recolor of that... His bunny ears are still odd...)

    A SHOP, oh my

    [​IMG]

    I think this looks a little closer to G1 in terms of color and it still would allow the vehicle mode to look the same, as far as I know. Not perfect at all, the red on the legs is pretty weird, but I think it works more than what Hasbro came up with.

    A bit much red in Robot mode but I will buy it for my Prime Shelf. Make me glad I didn't buy a Voyager Prime after all, at least he won't look like Leader Prime's Mini Me
