    Looks better than the last batch of pictures we saw. I'm still not entirely thrilled about it as I initially was, but I'm going to buy it and see how it is in person.

    See, that's how pictures should be done. That first pic alone is better than any galleries I've seen so far. I'm totally hyped for this toy now. I love all the awesome swordsman poses he can do.

    Those are very well-done photos. I'm glad to see such a nice range of articulation.

    The mold is really great, but I really want to see the United paint job...

    Looks like a good mold with an unfortunate paint job. (however G2-accurate it may be - at least in robot mode). The goals appear to be improving detail and articulation over Laser Prime, along with a less cheatsy transformation. The G2 Prime has a basic charm to it that is missing here, probably in part due to the slight movie influence, and the patchwork color scheme (especially in vehicle mode).

    A Nemesis Prime/RiD Scourge color scheme will probably make this mold pop (much like it did for Laser Prime.) It would be neat if the 'Matrix' molding was replaced/modified with the v-pattern from RiD Scourge's fake chest windows.

    I don't know why, but I'm just not feeling that head, something is off for me :(

    Trust me....your not the only one.

    The figure has some nice articulation. And the moldings look great. But I don't know....maybe if it was someone else. IMO still think the original G2 version is better.

    Event though I'm not too crazy about that healdsculpt, I do appreciate seeing artistic liberties taken on a timeless character such as Prime.

    He's a definite get, but I will moreso enjoy the inveitable Scourge repaint.

    Looks nice, however the head doesn't look all too much like G2 Laser Prime. It just looks to "Movie" to me. I mean the sword looks like ROTF Movie leader Primes.

    The head looks like movie Prime. Very nice figure, but I will wait until the RID Scourge Repaint....if not, then I might buy it to do myself

    Definitely looking better. He is on my list along with Thunderwing. Still somewhat unsure about Scourge it would be nice to see a similar gallery of him.

    I thought he's in Reveal the Shield. He does have a rub sign right.
