    I love scouts/basic class. You can take them anywhere, easy to transform, and look really cool lately. I was thinking of having a big scouts only battle tonight with the kiddos and got to thinking, "How cool would it be to get a scout Optimus Prime?" Think how cool the Takara team could make him.

    After some of the recent scouts I've got (Stalker, Breakaway, Dune Runner, Red Baron), I'd be all over a scout class Prime/Megs/Ironhide/Starscream/any main character.

    The only thing that doesn't make the scout class my favorite at this point is the character selection.

    i'd be down... it'd be like roller all growed up... and i agree with you on the scouts... they're a blast... and one thing i've noticed is if i have 3 or 4 voyagers in the living room, my wife says i have too many toys out there... but if i've got like 8 or 9 scouts, nothing...

    I wouldn't mind, but I like that the Scouts in ROTF are not main characters and have unique alt modes.

    Although I do remember seeing someone customize Rollbar into a Prime once, don't remember where.

    I'd love me some Scout Primes! Always a big fan of the smaller size classes due to their cheaper prize and easier manageability. I love big bots, but sometimes I like smaller ones that can more easily fit on my shelf as well as are easier to play with.

    Looks like Hasbro is making a Scout Movie Prime!

    I like big bots and I can not lie
    You other collectors can't deny
    That when unicron transforms in space
    Becomes a round thing in your face
    You get sprung...

    etc...

    I'd prefer something along the lines of a scout Ravage or Wheelie,

    as long as it wasn't weird looking like the legends class. is it possible to get leader class level of complexity in a toy that is scout sized? if so, then i'd be all over it.

    Hmmm some of the Jollibee (local fast food chain) promo toys (Cybertron and ROTF OPs)are Scout sized, but based on Legends molds. The Activators OP is around Scout size. But having real Scout Class OP versions would be great! Or for that matter, of course BB. :)

    I'd be game for this! I always thought that Cyb Armorhide would make a neat mini Prime. But with the ROTF Scouts being as cool as they are, I say bring it on!

    That's the activator Optimus Prime. I am curious to see it, but I am worried that the activation mechanism will make it not that cool.

    Most Activator's have not suffered that badly, in fact it seems more of a plus. He certainly looks good enough.

    I love his "What did you just say about Miley Cyrus!?" face and pose.

    True, if the Animated line is anything to go by, Activators are fairly good, sometimes better than their normal sized counterparts. The cute style of these have me tempted.
