    Inferno looks spiffy.

    VP looks like an unfinished prototype. : (

    Vector Prime "The Last Autobot" looks pretty crap there compared to previous pics we seen of him.

    Both look good. I'm considering getting Inferno, but Vector Prime is already on my to-get list (he'll be renamed the Last Autobot :D ). You can tell that VP here has the same shade of brown that the Jetfire repaint had. The green eyes are slightly odd, but they look good on him.

    Inferno is a voyager. That's news to me I thought it was a deluxe.
    also it seems to have a alternate peg in robot mode for the water cannon.
    which I think is a better focus from hasbro's design team. I always loved the water blaster arm on the show.
    The ladder is better suited to a voyager hot zone (hot spot) or not at all.

    The new universe figures are so great. I'm buying two of everything to promote its success.

    I hav'ent really done such a completely crazy effort purchaseing a set before so wish me luck.

    The last autobot vector prime should not be displayed with the cyber key. noted. otherwise awesome.

    So with Alpha Trion being the same mold does that mean we will get a lot more of this mold painted different colors. Inferno is a must buy I can not wait to see Grapple.

    Sheez. Heavily-photoshopped golden redeco of Vector Prime looks like poop in real life - it's Galaxy Force VP all over again.

    :(  - wow. The REAL pics take a lot of the luster away.

    Though Hasbro, hurry up with real pics of Cyclonus, Hound, and RAVAGE.

    What makes you think there will be a Grapple? They only shared the same mold in G1 because the crane was remolded into a ladder.

    This Inferno does not have a ladder and is based heavily on a real fire engine.

    A Grapple repaint would just be a yellow fire engine which does not suit the character.

    Inferno is looking incredible. And a Voyager to boot!

    I've always liked the Vector Prime toys, but with that paint deco and his key inserted...he looks like he's got his pants on Steve Urkel-style in that pic.

    Even in the heavily photoshopped picture you could tell it was brown, not gold. I'm probably in the minority on this, but I actually really like his color scheme, thought he would look a bit better withought the key in place.

    Edit: Was just looking at the in-package picture of VP, and it looks like the wing pieces will be a little bent. Not a big issue, as I don't have a problem with those pieces, it's just going to be a little frustrating getting those flattened back out.

    Did anybody notice how there's always weeks with hardly any news, and then we get hundreds of stock photos, leaked toys and whatnot within a single week?

    Well Hasbro has never missed the chance to repaint a mold to make some more money off it. I am assuming but with the added engineering to the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold and an easy Red alert with a lightbar which I am sure was part of the removeable engine. I think Hasbro planned an Inferno repaint to Grapple with just a couple changes. Looks to me like the lightbar can be removed and the the watercannon could be replaced with a hook. Again just guessing on my part though.
