    Wish they\'d make even the smallest effort to make the prime master\'s look like the original primes they represent

    Personally, I prefer the way they mostly look like the inner robots of the Pretenders. It's an excuse to do these guys for a new era of Transformers.

    I\'m kind of surprised they didn\'t to Nemesis Prime considering that was a plot point of TLK (not a great plot point but one nonetheless). It\'s actually pretty nice to see this change. I\'m probably not going to get Rodimus Unicronicus but this is nice for a lot of the SG fans

    Okay so in hand and in the artwork he has a purple Autobot symbol yet official images here show a Con symbol, make up your mind Hasbro :D  Either way its awesome seeing Shattered Glass get a mainstream release, kind of. I need this SG Rodimus.

    And seriously? A Shrapnel rerelease? Damn it, I plan on preordering the wave from BBTS day one but I don't need yet another Shrapnel. Oh well guess I'll keep this one MIB and hang on the wall with TR Cosmos; so I'm starting a small MIB collection now?

    I have no interest whats so ever in the Prime Masters, I'd rather have a deluxe Landmine or Cloudburst over whatever they're pulling here. But I was picking and choosing the Titan Masters (Shuffler & Lione. Might go and get Repugnus now that I have Grotusque on order) so I'll end up doing the same here, I have Botcon Metalhawk & TR Metalhawk so I might get this one too to display alongside the other two.

    So, why are there no pics of the front of each of these pretender armor figures?

    Windcharger looks okay. Like everything except for the face, so I might just wait around for a remold.

    Rodimus Unicronus is... interesting. Coming from a bad mold into a cool color scheme with a neat homage, but cursed with stickers and the aforementioned bad mold.

    And holy shit, they are really not putting much into those Prime Masters. Within a very short span, we have the same weird phallic cannon mode on two. It doesn't look like they are homaging the Primes in any way here. Not the inner bots, the shells or the weapons. If only these were designed in a manner that allowed variety and had maybe some decent melee weapons so they would seem less banal.
    That excuse goes at the expense of the characters involved. It's left in some kind of limbo where they look like one thing but are another thing. Not to mention how it deprives characters that are actually part of modern Transformers of their time of day.

    But it's not really Vector Prime. It's really Metalhawk, just with Vector Prime's name, just like all of the Prime Masters are really the Pretenders taking the names of the Primes.

    Basically, yeah. I'm not sure why they even bothered with the whole Prime things. I'm just gonna end up calling them by who they are.

    The official photos have Rodimus Unicronus with a Decepticon symbol, but the images of the samples from NYCC have the SG Autobot symbol. Which symbol do you think that they'll actually release with it?

    This is my first time seeing the reveals.
    HOLY FUCK IT'S MY BOY GROTESQUE! AND HE LOOKS GREAT! AND WINDCHARGER, DEAR LORD, MY HAVE YOU PUT THE OLD VERSION TO FURTHER SHAME! RODIMUS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HOPED AND HE HAS THE FACIAL HAIR!!!11!!! 100,000,000/10 best line ever will buy almost everything.
    Edit: I believe that I have technically calmed down but I still want Grotesque more than damn near any toy in the line, and that's saying a lot. The Terrocons look reeeeally good, with Hun-Gurr possibly letting the team down a bit in robot mode. He's got Silverbolt-brand hinge cufflinks. I will buy all of Volcanicus, given the QC isn.t as bad as people seem to believe it may be. I really like Windcharger. I was thinking of getting Hot Rod (hell, I still haven't gotten close to buying a TR one), but I'm absolutely buying this one. It's SG Rodimus. At retail. That's bitchin'. I don't care for the Prime Masters, much like I didn't really care for the Titan Masters, but that's the only bit I'll complain about. The line just looks fantastic, in my opinion.

    What\'s with a third windcharger in such a short time span? Is he a reissue of a previous version? Doesnt look like he has space for a master but I could be wrong...
