    The storage for BB's gun kinda sucks. So I find it more secure to shove the barrels between his feet.

    You can remove the weapons and there is a kick stand behind them.

    Update:

    Yes BB shoulders can move forward. Yes Arcee's front wheel can fit into her back but I think having it flat works better.

    I think this is the first time I've seen the lower chest piece on Bumblebee since the first promo shot. I think every trade show display thus far hasn't had that piece pulled down at all.

    Damn, these molds look freaking awesome. Can't wait to get the regular versions, though this is a very nice exclusive set as well.

    BTW, can the shoulders still face forward like pictured here, or has that been dropped for the actual figure?

    That Bumblebee is the best thing ever. Shame I can't get the pack version, but atleast the mold looks good by itself.

    I kind of hate you right now. Seeing Bumblebee "Properly mistransformed" (at least compared to the promo pics) makes him look amazingly screen-accurate, and that Arcee just looks great every time I see her. Which means that now I'm going to go spend way too much money to have this set, since I'm not at the con.

    Honestly I dont know. I followed the instructions. I can see when I get home tonight.

    Im not a fan of Prime. But since I live in NY, I think this set is just awesome. Plus blue Arcee seems dumb to me. Arcee is pink. A nice nod to G1. Now im gonna have to make a G1 style head.

    Whoa, it's always amazing how proper photos and displaying really make these molds shine. Hasbro can't display their own products if their sales depended on it!.

    This Arcee mold is way, way better than I initially thought. BB is still not quite perfect, but if the Prime line extends as expected, we'll see many many BB molds and we'll be able to choose.

    Arcee's color is the only thing that turns me off on this set. the pink is way too light. If it was the color in the package pics it would have been better, but as it is it looks almost washed out. GeeWun or not, blue suits the figure better.

    Can't wait for these to hit retail officially.

    Thanks so much for the photos, I've been chomping at the bit to see better pics of these molds for months.

    When you get around to it though, here are some corrections to the transformations that would be nice to see if you have time (based on knowing the character models and staring at promo pics for way too long).

    Bumblebee
    -shoulders should fold out towards the front 90 degrees (check out a CG render of the character if you're not sure what I mean)
    -the chunks of the car's rear on his lower legs look nicer if you tilt them forward as much as possible
    -the door wings SHOULD be able to scrunch inward toward the center of his back (I say "should" because I'm almost positive that's what that dark gray hinge is for, but we have yet to see them arranged that way)

    Arcee
    -her shoulder wings should swing upwards (check kylash327's post above mine)
    -there looks to be a wheel-shaped cavity in her back, wondering if it's possible to rotate the wheel 90 degrees and fit it in there?

    Again, thank you so much for posting this, waiting for the Prime line has been a long time coming.

    Thanks Starstriker! :D 

    These really do look beautifully done. Bee's mold really is fantastic, Arcee's too (although the color is distracting). I really can't wait til the normal versions of these finally drop.

    BTW Starstriker, do yourself the favor and watch the show. It is a damn good series. ;)

    Can Bumblebee's doors slide further down the middle of his back instead of being near his shoulders?

    Can you transform the two seamed pieces directly under his chest headlights?

    There are two rivets that allow these to slide downward. At least that is what the instructions say, and in theory it should work. But in reality it is VERY difficult to make them budge, and I gave up after twenty minutes of trying.

    Bumblebee's shoulder pieces rest on hooks next to his head assembly. I just put a little force into trying to get the shoulder bits to hook in, and one of the hooks broke. Plastic for the hooks should have been thicker. And bar underneath shoulder has no room for tolerance.

    I expect a lot of Bumblebees to be breaking when the line is launched.

    Thanks for the pics, great job with some of those poses.

    Meh, this stuff does not do nothing for me.

    I'm more intrigued by the packaging. A lot of effort goes into packaging...hopefully this is a sign that tfp will get a human alliance line. Could be a one shot too though, like the tfp sdcc prime.

    Enh...anyways, hopefully more movie stuff comes out for me.
