    Rescue Bots Optimus Prime! MODs delete if there is already a thread for this guy, I tried to search but well, you know. I picked this up today from Target, pretty cool little Prime. Obviously very simple to transform but technical enough to keep my 3 year old away from my Classics/Henkei figures. :lol  A little pricey ($13.99) but worth it if your kids love TFormers. I recommend it, fits nicely in a Prime collection. I left Bumblebee and the other figure, but his name escapes me, maybe Whirl? Here are my crappy phone pics, enjoy!

    Do it! My son took to it right away, very intuitive transformation. But he's also had a legends Prime to practice on.

    Obviously simple but its pretty much pull down the legs ans everything pretty much locks in place. Other than adjusting the feet ans head that's about it. Just remember this is for the little ones. BB is pretty cool too.

    From the looks of it, I doubt there is any articulation, other than the transformation joints.

    How big are these? I was under the impression they were scout-ish sized, but that's a deluxe price tag!

    Cool figure though.

    13.99? How big is it in inches/centimeters?
    And holy crap, the complexity on this thing makes MP Megs look like a Happy Meal toy.

    Nope.

    Negative Ghostrider.

    Bigger than a Deluxe slightly smaller than a Voyager.

    He's probably like 8 inches or so tall.

    Negative Ghostrider.

    I actually really like the idea of these things. Proper Transformers (with transformations) for little ones that capture the essence of more complex toys in its simplicity. I might pick up Optimus and one of those electronic ones just because they're so darn cute. If I had any young ones, these are definitely the Transformers I'd buy.

    Wow, even Super Mods are affected by these "crashes"

    Anyway, I didn't even know that these were out yet.
