    Those are the best pics yet, thanks! My enthusiast for Goldbug is now gone however. I was assuming that he would have gold paint and not just be that sickly "gold" plastic. Feh. I'll just wait for Takara to make a real Goldbug. ;)  Regardless, the rest of these are fantastic.

    I'm impressed! That is easily the best looking modern G1 styled Prime we've gotten. Not only has a solid bot mode, but the vehicle mode is cohesive, and shaped like an actual truck. Megatron looks pretty good, too. Can't wait for these to show up in stores!

    Those look fantastic! Sure, the paint on SS is weak-sauce, but nothing a couple minutes of painting can't fix. Anyone else think its weird that Megatron gets actual silver paint, while SS suffers from that horrible gray plastic?

    I can't get over how amazing that Megatron looks.

    I find the lack of paint on Starscream disturbing. Otherwise, win.

    Poor Starscream lost the paint-app lottery. :) 

    First I look at the card backs, depicting the rubsign position on the toy, then I look at the front with the toy in the package and ... waitaminnit...

    Cool, though I'm hoping some of them are prototype in-package testers. Especially Starscream. Still going to get at least Optimus and Megatron. Starscream will be an in-person decision. If they announce a Skywarp repaint, I'll just wait for that.

    I'm a little disappointed with Starscream's tech spec numbers. I don't think a second-in-command officer would have gotten that job with the Decepticons if his intelligence was actually 4.

    The mold is nice and I see they left the opportunity open to do conehead repaints with it.

    Sorry to see Starscream go gray-headed but the way it transforms I can understand why, you'd get a big black section of the jet that would look strange. Ah well, the inevitable Skywarp will be perfect and I'll pretend it's Actionmaster Starscream. I seriously cant wait for them to repaint that a dozen times over.

    The transform on Prime and Megatron are great, very well engineered little guys. Really nice to see a G1-style Prime that has the smaller midsection without making the vehicle mode look terrible.

    They've been doing that since the ROTF Voyager at least, and I agree that it should be higher. A calculating plotter like Screamer shouldn't have such a low number there.

    WOW Starscream is a disappointment! He looked so good in white plastic and they went with cheap gray. Look at Megatron's awesome silver paint though!

    I feel like whoever gave Screamer a 4 in intelligence has been taking the original show a little too seriously, in a way. Yes, he was clearly mentally impaired, but we are talking about a show where he commits attempted murder and treason of his commander / monarch every episode and never suffers any consequence.
