    Just found these posted on the ami-ami website yesterday. I'm not sure if they've been here posted before.

    I still can't figure out how in the hell the thigh wheels end up on the BACK of the truck...

    Don't get me wrong, I know it won't be removable parts, but the only transformation I can think of involves removing both legs below the knee and placing them as the truck's nose after transforming the rest of it.

    The rear wheels are connected to his thighs via a series of several silver folding panels. So they're not a skirt on his waist or anything like that, but actually attached to his thighs.

    As you can see here:

    Not entirely new but these are nice clearer and larger shots of TakaraTomy's version of Prime.

    Fantofan.jp provided scans of last month's Japanese hobby mags which showed a scan of the same stock pics.

    It's sad that Hasbro aren't able to take decent stock pics of their products like TakaraTomy.

    Cool. I'll be getting 2. 1 to stay as Prime, and one to turn into Sigma. Was it ever confirmed that he actually has rubber tires? or is that still just speculation?

    Everybody say it with me now...

    KNEES!

    Finally we get some shots of him bending his legs. That should allay some of the worries that the fold-y leg transformation removes all of his leg pose ability.

    EDIT:

    I still wish they had cast the mid-hood hinge in red instead of gray though. Having two blocks of gray in the middle of that red and blue flame deco is going to look really out of place.

    Voyager-class proportions be damned: That truck mode and more intricate transformation are easily more important to me and I definately prefer this version (I'll probably get both though)

    I think it will be a whole lot more satisfying Prime than Cybertron Prime for the price with a real hardcore transformation, good poseability and realistic alternate mode.

    I REALLY can't decide which Prime I like more now. The more pics I see of both the more I think the last one looks like crap. I guess I will probably buy both :lol

    ...yea, these pics make me have to get him now. It's a shame hasbro's photographers suck so hard, they can't even seem to get the Transformations right half the time.
