    When I see Prime at the flea market in a few years, I'll have to buy it.

    They look so cool. It's almost Animated all over again.

    The BB looks like a Gravity Bot(not a good thing) but the Prime and Heatwave are pretty cool for preschool toys.


    In before "Return of Armada" comments lol

    Dig the Animated look but it seems that Optimus just has elbow articulation like his Kre-O basic counterpart. Ah..

    I like these and will get them for my son (although at almost 4 he might be getting a little old for them) but still maintain with very little effort/design changes it seems like they could have been SIGNIFICANTLY better.

    (mostly i'm just thinking pull-out instead of flip-out shoulders so they could have a little bit of forward/back arm movement and more normal proportions.)

    Edit: also kind of wierd that all 3 have a different aesthetic to their headsculpts: Prime is cartoony G1, Bumblebee is TFA and Heatwave looks more like what i think of when i think "super hero squad/rescue squad" type pre-school toys ~ cartoony human-ish face in a helmet.

    Cute. Very cute. I'm surprised they made Optimus look so G1.

    Heh, they all look pretty nice. I might get OP and BB even though I'm way too old for them at 16. Still looking forward to this show though, I hope the target audience likes it :D

    Awwwww! my six month old is getting a full set. That way I can test their educational and saftey levels.

    For a few years.

    Hello, I posted this same piece of news yesterday, but it was mysteriously taken away. I even posted a thread in tech support asking about it:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tfw2005-tech-support/420464-missing-thread.html

    Was it wrong for me to have posted it? Please let me know so I can avoid breaking rules in the future.

    On the Rescue Bots themselves, I'll certainly pick them up! :)

    webz I lol'd at your sig

    Have any of you ever felt weird being an older teen or an adult buying toys? I mean I don't care but sometimes when I walk through the Target with a Leader Sentinel Prime, it goes through my head like what?

    No offense or anything that's just how I feel after the excitement of the hunt is gone for the remainder of the time I'm there haha

    Bumblebee looks horrifying. I like a lot of the "kiddie" style figures' looks but so far these aren't that appealing to me.

    I do kinda agree ~ considering he's sort of the marquee character for TF these days, i kinda feel the failed on him for this line ~ i think if his car top rotated 180° so that it was pointed down (maybe an automorph?) he'd look a lot better in bot mode.

    I just realized - Waves 1 AND 2 (in one size class I assume) equals three toys total? Feels like we're back to 1997 here. :)

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm going to call that Heatwave Big Red. I don't know why, but he just reminds me of Big Red when I look at him.....
