    I can't count how many times I've been excited by the look of a prototype only to recoil in disgust when I see the plastic colors they use in production. The TFC Poseidon toys looked pretty good until I saw them in color. So many third party toys get ruined by their odd color choices.

    Man. Blot looks fantastic. I wish they could figure out a way to make the figure smell. Stink would make that toy perfect.

    Anyone remember getting Stinkor as a kid? That figure smelled.

    You say that like Transformers isn't already known for repacks and repaints.

    Never has a figure been more inappropriate for army building and never have I wanted to Army build something more. Bludgeon is metal he's always been metal and every time there's a new toy of him he's more and more metal.

    And with this, our hopes of a TT Mall UW Abominus in cartoon colors are all but gone.

    I never cared about the terrorcons but this set looks so great in general.

    Also yep I'm also in the "everything looks cooler as a grey prototype" group. Though I'm sure it'd become boring as an actual part of your collection after a while.

    Grey prototypes better ?

    Any product's looks fall or stand with display/photography lighting.
    For pictures, flashlight usually makes figures look bad - for display, TL tube lighting is usually unflattering as well.

    The photos are the only thing different. The figures themselves are identical.

    Abominus looks to be the best official combiner ever.

    Never understood the love for monkeyjetprime. I absolutely hated the original toy, it just looks stupid to me. Vehicle modes are trash. And this one has a smaller primal that turns into a surfboard brick? No thanks.

    Abominus though, yes please.

    You can thank the nice folks at Hasbro's "Brand Unification" department for this shitstorm.

    Sorry, but... Primal looks horrible. I don't like this at all. The way they incorporate the deluxe into Optimal Optimus is awful, they put those shitty foil stickers on him and he lacks paint all around.

    I actually consider getting a Beast Gorira now, if PE reissues it. Yes, you heard right, I will pass on a mainline Beast Wars toy and may get a 3P figure instead. WTF is going on.
