    Wow, when they "deface" a prototype before it leaves the factory, they really get serious!

    And hey, Voyager Optimus vehicle mode photo!

    Wow. Lugnut looks phenominal.

    WAY better than Cybertron Jetfire IMO.

    And Voyager Prime... NICE.

    He'd better post that sucker up for auction soon.

    Though Prime's really lacking without the trailer, it seems.

    I'm liking Lugnut, but why is he a cargo plane? When I hear Lugnut, I think muscle car, motorcycle, or construction equipment, plane never really comes to mind - it's just a gearhead kinda name. Also, Prime looks like a mix between Energon (in overall shape and radar/head looking thing on the roof) and Cybertron (in the front windows and coloring). I'm definitely looking forward to seeing some complete figures.

    Well, if I'm remembering correctly, "Lug" is also a word for "carry." So that could explain the cargo plane thing.

    I agree about the name... it seems like for this series' new characters they're just pulling names out of the list that have only the vaguest bearing on the character, not necessarily names that really seem appropriate.

    Similarly, Bulkhead's name makes me think of boats, spaceships... maybe even a cargo plane... doesn't really work for an armoured truck though. It seems like they just took names for those two guys based on the fact that it makes them sound lumbering, dense and thuggish. Kind of weak.

    Uh. He's called Lugnut because he's big and dumb?

    yup, cause Lugnut is like the Hulk, while Bulkhead is the Thing.



    Oh and looks nice and beefy.

    Prime looks like a homage to Energon Prime. Look at his alt mode.

    And Lugnut looks pretty good in chopper mode, but where the hell is his head?

    Read the eBay info.

    Clearly says that the head's missing.

    One of the few toys from this line I'm actually looking forward too. Can't wait to see a complete fully painted one.
