    It LOOKS like it transforms... but certainly not into an 18-wheeler cab.

    Protoform editions?!?! I really, really like those! Kind of like rock-lords, but these would be meteor-lords, heh.

    Protoform eh? Pretty cool. Very alien looking in terms of robot and alt mode.

    Wow these are really cool. If you read the "thing" you'll know why they turn into spaceship/meteor-ish looking chunks of Cybertronian.

    Anyways, these look great because its about time we see some more "generically Cybertronian" forms. You can see headlights and windows on prime, and little wheels.... although i think thats just a little touch and that hes not supposed to be a truck.


    They remind me of some of the better parts of Beast Machines/Beast Wars. Great detail and articulation.

    Not quite what it says...

    '...morphs into a form that will allow him to hide until the time...'

    Basically reformats into earth form.

    Doesn't say that he will 'transmorph' between truck and robot.

    Anyway, interesting, interesting. Nice aesthetic and the hints of the colours to come/they have had in the past are good touches.

    *Eagerly awaits more*

    They're protoforms with improvised armor for protection during planet-fall. :)  No morphers.

    Rock lords indeed. I don't get where the movie producers are coming from, but whatever.

    BUT: The packaging is awesome. I'm really glad the old font is back for the logo and the diecut upper card is neat.
