    Yeah, The movie lines were notorious for repainting Prime and Bumblebee left and right anyways, Maybe this time they will make a scene pack with some screen accuracy for those kind of people.

    Eh, AOE's mayor focus on the Dinobots kinda gotten in the way too.

    The layout is exactly the same, except they added some texture on the white. And they have a different motif on the bottom with the new crappy logo design.lol

    Agreed! I also think the movie designs made it hard. But customizers proved that more movie accurate bots were possible with the movie designs. I think this figure shows that they are trying to make a more involved transformation, not the "simple steps" like on the AoE line.

    Yeah, I think we're moving past the days of "simplicity as a selling point." Little things like the wiggling boobies which could easily have been moulded with the rest of the chest show a focus more on accuracy and intricacy.

    I love how they are still advertising OP as a hero even after what happened in the trailer.

    We can agree that this is vastly superior to the entire line of AoE.

    Don't forget about AOE Hound. That figure was a work of art.

    I wonder how many redecos they can squeeze out of this mold and if there'll be a non-Premier/First edition with a completely new mold just like with TF:p rime Optimus Prime.

    I wonder if the \'Premier Edition\' logo means that it\'s going to become a thing like Platinum Edition. It doesn\'t look especially Transformerish so could it be something they\'re going to do with all their brands?

    The figure's fine (cept that paint job). But can I get that Prime render? That's a nice one.

    Yeah I love the actual CGI model for the art. When was the last time we got that in the movies? Never? We've just got partial renders, concept art, or original art.

    I really hope they don\'t sideline the movies series like they did with AOE. I\'ve been a movieline collector since 2007 and it was sad to see them put such little effort into the AOE line. I\'m not sure why they put so much focus on the toddler toys, as the movie is clearly aimed for teens and adults. Even as a child, I\'d prefer the more complex toys to the gimmicky ones.

    The simplified kids' toys are good in their own way, that they're not too difficult to transform and are a lot of fun with good play value (like the one steps transforming in one go like on screen, or the action features of the power attackers), but I think if they're making those kinds of figures then they should just go all out with the 'traditional' size classes, and give them a premium deco from the start. Yes, they'd then be more e pensive, but if they're aiming at 'older fans' and collectors then that market isn't going to mind paying more for something that's done well. As it is it's like they're hedging their bets, and though there's bound to be plenty of child-aimed figures coming out, they still seem to be intent of keeping the costs down with the 'generations' style toys so that kids and their parents can afford them.
