    PS: for the record, the gun doesn't look like a surfboard now, and I LOVE the way the stacks can swivel down and forward to become forarm blasters!

    O_O;; Prime has a shotgun...Is that supposed to be some kind of throw back to truckers being hicks with gun racks with shotguns on them >.>;;

    Don't get me wrong, I really love this figure though the first thing it makes me think of is this is Energon Prime after dieting or before he got all flabby in Energon.

    Wow! Gun looks like a shotgun and this is definitely impressive! I think the forearm guns might be a nod to big convoy's tonfas. If so, cool!

    Can't wait to see megs and jetfire!

    Not sure what to make of the gun...


    That said having seen the back, I'm VERY glad it doesen't have the 'Faux cab front'' feature ala Laser Rod Prime..

    upon closer inspection, the peg on the back is what the kibble piece that is floating to the right side of the sketch connects to the body with... look at the front angled picture, that piece is attached to his back, but is "removed" to allow you to see the back's detailing.

    Sweet Munky Primus!

    That's not a slice of heaven, that's the whole damn pie. :D  This line will be my new favorite as of right now.

    To which I add, Hasbro... make more figures and expand this line. THIS is what we want. :cool:

    That's it. I can't wait. Some one get me a Delorean, and flux capacitor. This is beyond awesome. I really have no words for how much I'm loving this design. I know these drawings have been of the now (believed to be) cancelled deluxe version, but the mega should be at least as mind blowing.

    It's going to be a long summer, waiting for these. [​IMG]

    Moroni, it looks like it could be used to let a mini-con attatch, but judgeing by the hinges it appears to be mounted on there's no way it's an Armada style mini-con power up port.

    Optimus sucked in his gut while Arcee walked by.

    I sure wouldn't have a problem if that was a Mini-con port. Mini-cons became very popular, and if the ports were out of the way, what would be the problem?
