    The Fallen's blue! Why? Is it a prototype? Hasbro could give it movie-accurate colors.... It would be perfect with the already remolded head and hands that hold the staff.

    Because it's a shitty mold that doesn't display well in either form in packaging, so Hasbro needs an eye-catching way to get kids to buy it. Boys like blue. Not really much more to it than that.

    But why blue with improvements that would make the figure nearly perfect?

    I'm just disappointed they didn't make it one of the Primes.

    Because the Color blue means it is hotter than red. they could call it 'supernova' Fallen or something.

    What's wrong with Fallen being blue? I think it's a cool color scheme, and I'm so totally going to buy the Blue Fallen when he comes out.

    I can see a lot of people shelling out $22 just for the staff. Just like with the Animated battle begins set so people could have a show accurate axe for Voyager Prime. I bet they want to release the blue fallen first so peeps will buy it for the staff then in a few months well see a movie accurate repaint to get peeps to buy it again.

    Anyone wanna take bets?

    Wouldn't surprise me at all.

    I bought the Burning The Fallen because I like the G1 concept of The Fallen always being on fire. Didn't see the movie, not a fan of the character design, but the toy looks pretty alright in those colors. That's the only version I'm gonna spend money on.

    Yea, honestly, I think the blue looks surprisingly good for a mold that I am not a big fan of. Just wish someone would make some new heads for these so we could get The Primes.

    Well this one does have a new head, along with remolded hands and the weapon.

    Yea, just not sure (havent really checked the concept art) that it will match up with any of the Primes, and I am not one who repaints/details anything myself. I will probably get it and just call them the Primes anyhow with Fallen, burning, and blue. Atleast they are posable enough that they will display nicely as a set of three.

    I'm all over it, but he won't be the fallen, just another prime.

    I'm quite fond of the term I heard the other day considering he looks a lot like the pop tart, "Wildberry Fallen" (I've forgot who said it though, sorry >_<!).

    Considering the rather same-y screen primes I don't really think they would need a new head mold for this guy to be painted silver and dust accented as a "Prime".

    I hope they make this version in newer colors and pass it off as some other character though cause I'm sure not buying a third Fallen.

    You know what would be so hillariously garrish though is if they gave it the Vector "Prime" paint scheme (not the Universe one, that one's cool), I might actually have to buy that.

    The blue The Fallen is like Ice Megatron and the burning The Fallen is like Battle over Mission City Megatron. The staff looks like it can be stored somewhere in Cybertronian Destroyer mode. The Fallen is an evil alien leader so he is supposed to look that way. This deco makes him look more cold, heartless and apathetic to other lifeforms. He will also probably have stats that go to infinity and beyond too. I hope it is a store exclusive because that character is not that popular (using Robot Replicas, Target burning, TRU Gathering at the Nemesis, and WonderFest 2010 as proof).

    I'm still confused on the color as well. While I like the new head sculpt and staff, I don't like the blue.

    I think that while Blue Fallen is odd, he still looks good in those colours.

    Here's the way I look at it:

    I've already spent ~$30 on a pair of Fallen's bashed together into a Leader Class Fallen. What's another $20 to give him the hands, staff, and head he so rightly deserves?
