    Those line drawings of the characters under the heading "Characters" (how fitting) are pretty cool...

    I also saved the wallpapers as well... They are definitely neat.

    I wish the next Masterpiece would've been a new sculpt. Not a color change ie. Starscream and Skywarp, Optimus and Magnus. At least Soundwave, Frenzy and Rumble are coming out soon... Who will the next Masterpiece be after Skywarp? Thundercracker??? :(  Anyone else disappointed in the announcement?

    OK, looking at the Basics Prime and Starscream, I have to ask the question. Why does it seem every character that gets multiple price points in this line looks better at the smaller price points than they do at the bigger price points? Leader Prime - some good/some bad. Voyager Prime - Pretty cool. Basics Prime - DAMN THAT'S HOT!

    Not that I would sneeze at any one of them, but why does it seem like more energy was put into making the overall mold look good when they're smaller, and the larger ones seem to be more about gimmicks and flash than looks? Wouldn't you want the higher price to look better and be more appealing?

    Otherwise, I like those renders they have up there. Really nice character shots.

    I think all the basics are is the fast action battlers.

    I don't think so. I didn't think FABs had leg posability. And that Basics Prime has it in spades. Unless I'm thinking of something else.

    The reason the smaller Primes look better is that they cheat more the smaller they get. Leader Prime doesn't really cheat at all, but since you can never match the movie aesthetic with a toy, ends up chubby since it can't all fold in together.

    I thought FABs were those little auto-transforming jobbies that just look like they fold in half. If that's what FABs look like, then I've been mistaken and I'll end up having to grab a few of them.

    IMO, FAB Prime doesn't look better than either of his bigger scale versions. Looks like a neat toy though.

    Starscream OTOH, does look better mainly because it has hands, and not gimmicks.

    :lol

    See, I just haven't paid enough attention lately. Oh well, I'll see what's what on toy release day when I go running through the toy aisles.
