    I see Takara broke their hearts on the packaging then.



    Considering how heavily they Photoshopped some of the Arms Micron promo images, nothing would surprise me.

    The optimus is too much packaging, not enough toy. The paint job looks good though.

    Because he'd look like Bluestreak if he was silver. Giving him a perlescent finish was the best option.

    Wow that packaging is...of minimal effort lol. I'm not buying any of these for the packaging of course, but I do like it when Takara does their own thing rather than use Hasbro's setup and simply slap some Japanese writing and logos on there to differentiate.

    Sorry, but what were you seriously expecting? It's hard to do metallic white.

    prime's unpainted chest grill and smokestacks really bug me, for some reason.

    But yeah, interesting to see that they opted to mimic the Hasbro boxes, kindasorta like what they did with the Arms Micron line.

    Would metallic white, hidden behind a plastic blister, show up in a picture anyway? It isn't a dull white, a see a shine on the surface.

    These toys aren't in stores yet (probably won't be out until this time next month), but I'll be looking at these for sure when they come. I don't know If I'll pull the trigger though. 2,500 is a lot to pay for these little things--Arms Microns which are bigger don't even cost that much!

    I can't tell if Jazz is a pearly white, or a very light gray like the AM Smokescreen.

    The only Transformer toys I've ever seen sit on shelves here are the live action movie toys. Toys R Us still has DOTM toys sitting next to the Prime toys, and only one of these lines appears to be selling, the currently on TV.
