    I was looking at mine today for the first time in like 2 years. I really like him. He's poseable as hell and the more I looked at him the more I though of the generic Decepticons running around DOTM. Now I want to army build him. Anyone else feel the same?

    If you took voyager Blackout's head and put it on him it'd match the design of the Decepticon protoform perfectly.

    I'm surprised nobody has done this yet.

    He also technically counts as protoform Ironhide, Jazz, and Ratchet.

    I agree. I'd buy them.
    Prime is awesome. Screamer is meh but better than the Voyager IMO.

    I quite liked Proto Prime. It doesn't seem to be much of a keeper though as I'm always finding them at car boot sales. Maybe it's all the grey that some people feel it doesn't make him seem very Optimus-y. Was there ever repaint in the traditional blue and red? I know there was a nasty fireball type one.

    Apparently Michael Bay did this. Surprised Hasbro hasn't yet.

    You're finding them at sales because they were the only two molds in the assortment. They should have thrown a Bumblebee in there, at least.

    that thing is pretty awesome. My only gripe really with it is the overuse of that terrible gray plastic and the monkey feet. There have been some pretty nice customs in radicons with these and it's really amazing the amount of detailing in.

    Good to see this mold get some recognition! i've been displaying my proto-prime as a generic con protoform since ROTF ! the guy is fantastic to pose and just real great over all engineering really wished a retool of it or proto-starscream would see release so that i could pick up a couple to fill out movie deception ranks...

    Yes! More Bumblebees! We need more Bumblebees!! There aren't enough Bumblebees!!!

    <sarcasm off>

    At least there was one assortment of something without Bumblebee.

    Yes, he may be the best Rock Lord ever made! Seriously though, I also love this guy. I got him off Amazon for 15 bucks last year. I like to have him in an "I'll take you all on" Cybertronian standoff against DotM Voy. Shockwave, HftD Voy. Fallen, 2007 Voy. Megatron, RotF dlx Soundwave, and RotF dlx. Ravage. :cool: 

    I also would like a gun-metal colored repaint of of him or, better yet, the Starscream protoform as a generic Decepticon soldier.

    The Trans scanning BB and Optimus protoform figures from the 07 Takara Movie line are pretty cool.

    Oddly enough, it's the only mold from the TFTM line that I plan to keep. Awesome figure. I couldn't get rid of Protoform Starscream fast enough, but Prime was/is great.

    I've got 3 of them for filling out my Decepticon ranks. Amazingly articulated.
