    Thanks to an anonymous source, here's a sketch drawing of Transformers Classics Optimus Prime in his alternat mode. The sketch really lets you get a great look at the detailing. Also of note is the description reads "Deluxe Prime" and has the artist's name in the center: DON!

    Hopefully we'll see the robot mode soon.

    I like the top of the truck as it can hide a multitude of sins. (like his head and or other bot parts underneath.)

    Kudos to you, DON. Once again your skills shine through. :cool:

    Awesome to see Don officially designing the toys. He is truly the best, and we will all benefit from his skills.

    It's an illusion. See how the side with the "treads" is facing down in both.... The feet point the same way in both pics. The angle makes them appear flipped.

    Wonder if the smokestacks made it, couldn't make them out in the teaser pics. And the top of the truck looks to be the gun as well, judging from it's shape.

    And yeah, kickass.:thumb

    Ok, ok, FINE! I WILL be getting classic Prime. I was humming and hawing, thinking I could save a little $$ by passing him up, but after seeing these pics, DANGIT, I'll just have to get it now. AWESOME!
