    here's a picture that was in my news paper today, thought it would give a good idea of leader Prime's proportions and whatnot. had to do some photshopping but it seems to look ok now.

    he's a little bulky, but he's really starting to grow on me. but for some reason it looks like his knees are bending backwards.

    the pic would've been totally awesome if Archer had worn his Optimus helmet.

    regrettably, there was no article accompanying it. my local newspaper is gay like that.

    The Prime is satisfactory, but I need something more to put me at ease with the soul eating Megatron. Just hope it looks awesomus wonderful on the big screen. :-D
    By the by, is anyone going to be camping out in front of the theaters to see this movie. I want to see a real Decepticon camp!

    while i hate the design in bot mode, it's really impressive how much it looks like he "packs down" into vehicle mode.

    It's an excellent size, just a tad bigger than the Galaxy Convoy, can't wait to get my hands on them and get rid of the fugly flames. These figures would be in abundance right? Versus the Alternators

    Ah, that sucks. Also confusing as to how a newspaper could have a sexual preference. :wink:

    Prime looks like he should fit in well with my Alts. MP Prime's aesthetic is simply too clean, and his vehicle mode too abstract to properly display with the Alt. line. Perhaps Movie Prime will stand in as a worthy substitute. Heck, he looks more like an Alt. than his movie incarnation anyways.

    Argh...it's called standalone or wild art. Every paper uses them for anything not terribly newsworthy other than an interesting picture and hopefully a clever cutline. I'd say this qualifies, though it needs another clause or sentence relating it to the movie IMO.

    Hoping Archer's holding the robot pretty close to the camera, because it nearly looks like that robot can't possibly fit into that truck.
