    Since they're out here first, I suspect they will just be repackaged Hasbro toys?

    Ha, that is by far the best pic of Prime that I have seen. It is amazing what proper lighting and a little bit of care in posing can do to a figure.

    Much less kibble, much more in proportion, much much better looking overall.

    Nice find.

    Possibly not, but Takara's made a habit of adding paint apps to toys, especially if they're doing a later full-line release. I could see (or would like to see) some chrome accents on Prime, or at least some silver paint to make the gray parts look less plastic (especially if they are chrome/metal on the actual truck).

    I'd assume TakaraTomy wants to push TF movie toys pretty hard, just like Hasbro does.

    Dunno about that - from observation even Takara avoids painting parts that becomes the soles of the TF's feet if they can, as the paint will scrape off with play. Prime's grill becomes his feet.

    Makes sense, but Prime dosen't stand on ALL his silver/gray truck parts, at least not all at once. :)

    So uh. Anyone know how he transforms? I'm still as confused about that as when the first concept art leaked.

    The toy and the movie model transformes differently but some parts are roughly the same.

    The entire wheelframe + bits of nose form the legs. The rest is the cab.

    On the figure the nose is intact in forming the legs while on the movie model bits of it forms the arms.

    On the toy the arms are all in the sleeper section.

    This is if we go by the percentage of red and blue peices to use on the movie version.

    Still quite complicated but not quite comparable to the movie model. Wich is to be expected.

    Movie Prime looks much better in these photos...still not liking him all that much, but he's cool. I don't need him, though.

    Megs is still too skinny.

    Lol. I know what you mean. I currently have this Prime's transformation chalked up as "magic". :D

    its easier to figure it out if you have it in print, like the last toyfare issue.
