    is it just me or would anyone else like to see Hasbro bring out the Primes as a voyager size robot toy? it would be nice to see these guys in toy forms and such with the same sci-fi transformations like the Fallen.

    no I meant the Primes, the Fallens Brothers from early history.

    Optimus is their last descendant.

    They look too similar and would have epically lame alt modes, so no.

    Don't get me wrong, I think they and The Fallen's designs are good for the movie as the "original TFs" but there are way too many other characters that are more interesting to me that I'd rather see as toys.

    actually if you looked closely they are very dissimilar, in fact look at JetFire his body has the look of a Prime (the whiskers) but hes not one and has a totally differant transformation mode then the Fallen.

    Prime #1 is much, much more similar to Prime #2 than Optimus is to Bumblebee or Starscream is to Megatron. That's my point. I've seen the movie way too many times than can possibly be healthy for me and I'm very aware of their differences.

    I have no desire to line six of them up beside The Fallen as it would first of all be another $120 dropped and second of all would not make for a very visually distinct display.

    Spray paint a Fallen toy gold (or some likely color) and you have a Prime. Suprised Hasbro hasn't done it yet.

    This reminds me of Star Wars Expanded Universe figures. Not everyone knows who they are so Hasbro usually votes against releasing them.

    In fact, the last wave of Legacy Collection is Expanded Universe and because of that, Hasbro decided to can it EXCEPT for Toys R Us which bought the wave. Which made the wave into TRU exclusive. It's Animated Arcee all over again.

    That aside, I wouldn't mind having the primes.

    We won't get figures of characters like Hightower or Scrapper, so we definitely ain't getting no Primes.

    I'm sorry, but to me, Vector Prime still is best in his galaxy force design.

    If only they'd upgrade the toy... :p

    I agree, the toys that no one said we're getting should do something no one expects them to do.

    FP can't used the Movie Molds. So If the Primes got toys that got some Random names with "Prime" Rank on it.

    Hasbro would probably just half-arse it and repaint the Fallen mold. Look at the third Arcee sister for a similar effort. But then I'm sure a load of Primes would just end up clogging shelves anyway as the Fallen hasn't exactly shifted in my neck of the woods.

    1) They wouldn't sell.
    2) They don't look different enough.
    3) One of the Fallen is enough. I don't need more H.R. Giger looking non-bots that don't transform into anything.
