Transformers Prime Gears?

Posted on 12-24-2012 at 01:05 AM by ORIO under Transformers Prime
Gears4
Now, for something that's a bit of a question mark. 2005 Board member Deceptigtar, has received photos of an unreleased prototype of a Transformers Prime Gears from a source wishing to remain anonymous. This figure uses the Robots In Disguise Ratchet mold with the new head seen previously seen in his instruction pamphlet. The figure spots "gear" logos on his doors similar to the Revenge Of The Fallen toy of the same name.

Is this toy from the ghost of Christmas past? Or future? Either way, take this with a grain of salt. Speculate away on the 2005 Boards by clicking the title bar.

Interesting to say the least.

I like his robot mode, looks pretty neat.

Wow that looks great on the ratchet mold

Nothing of value of lost. If this were released I would have passed.

Could we get a good shot of the face?

Yep the M on the hood

Kup would have been a better figure to use.

Yeah, but like, could you ask your source, maybe?

Couldn't even read that in the pic, just saw the logo itself
ORIO
Thanks for sharing dude. I would totally buy that. I dig that mold
Kung Fu Man
Looking forward to this if it comes to be somehow, the TF Prime autobots really have thin ranks compared to the 'cons...
dwong1207
I think this ship has sailed and passed for me. Sorry hasbro...looking forward to a 3p gears
rattraprules98
I'd buy it...
BScorpinok75
i would've bought for sure
miscreant
Not too hard to figure out the source now, is it :-?

If they'd have produced it, would probably have bought it, but otherwise it's not a massive loss.
RedAlert Rescue
I'd rather he was the Decepticon Payload - but I like the mould - I just hope he's not a cancelled item like Frenzy might be and that it is a future 2013 product.

I wonder what his weapons are ?
starscream-99
I like this
JacobPGalvatron
His doors are blue in vehicle mode. Why are they burgundy in robot mode?
I love love love PRiD Ratchet, but this version needs a little extra something before I would consider getting it.
JAYSCREAM
it's nice to see this stuff buuuuuuuut i cant buy... make me sad lol.
i like ratchets mold but thought it was to small, would make a good gears. they seam to have gone through a lot of effort for a figure never to see the light of day....... who knows.
[Wing_Saber-X]
It's just he reused Prime Ratchet mould with a new head. Possibly a new color scheme too. Meh.
Karhukjnsi
Wow. This NEEDS to be released for reasons intimately personal!
LegendAntihero
I would be all over this if it got released. Ratchet was a great mold.

A million times this. Ratchet = Brawn.
Obsidian X
I hope this gets released. I really dig the Ratchet mold and I like Gears so I'd be all over this like a celebrity on crack.
barrelks
Meh, the completionist in me would buy it, but it is not something I would be overly eager to get my hands on.
Surge
I'm not too fond of repaints but I'm liking that head sculpt. I hope this is real.
Feralstorm
Kinda hoping this will come out in some kind of pack (store exclusive perhaps) with the previously seen Frenzy.
Thundershot
Hmmmm.... Assuming they're not canceled test shots, I can see Gears, Frenzy, Ironhide (the seller of Frenzy said he had a Hasbro Ironhide) and one other to be exclusives somewhere. I would have rather had these new characters than the Dark Energon figures.

Maybe Wheeljack as a proper Slicer or even as Tracks with a new head.
CodeXCDM
That would've been a great repaint/retool. In fact, wouldn't mind this over the slavish G1 iGear figure that was made.

Still wouldn't mind a Voyager-sized version of the Prime Ratchet mold though... we need a better Prime Ratchet.

Take it you don't find the Dark Energon exclusive a suitable enough Slicer? Heh...

Admittedly though... repainting the Beast Hunters Wheeljack into Slicer would be pretty sick. I mean with all those spikes protruding from the figure, he's bound to cut/stab stuff.
bobbyjack
I would have bought this Gears over the I-Gear one I have on preorder. Oh well, I guess I-Gear is still getting my money over Hasbro.

Well, that's why I said a "proper" Slicer...

Though the BH Wheeljack as Slicer is an even better idea. Prime Wheeljack as Tracks would look really neat though.

If hasbro is trying to lure us away from the 3rd party stuff then they have to do better than this. I would buy this if Cogs never existed.
NemiMonkey
Switch the brown with red and I would have had more interest. As it is I'm not too bothered he might not see release.
Blitz.
I can see this poppin up in Beast Hunters down the line even without the madmax spikes the new toys seem to love
Stardust262
Interesting. Now we know where that head came from.
Starfire22
Yeah. This, frenzy, and ironhide might get released in the BH line soon.

At least, I hope so.
Ravenxl7
Interesting test-shot deco. Makes me wonder how the production toy will look, and whether or not he'll have a new weapon.

I'll believe it when I see it, but that would be good news. I've been wanting to see an Ironhide stateside...
Fallout
ew. that head is uuugly.
cobra zartan
Same 2059 stamp as the frenzy, wonder what it means.
Grimwing
Missed opprotunity for Prime Autotroopers.
Noideaforaname
Color-wise, he kinda looks like Ultra Magnus.

Too bad the camera flash damn near obliterates the gear/Mt. St. Hillary logo (yet paradoxically doesn't really effect the "NOT FOR SALE").

eh,the head didn't scream "Autotrooper" anyways. im just bummed that the ratchet redeco wasn't Rung or Payload (I mean,the mold would make a EXCELLENT news van!)
phoenix88
me likey.
Composite Ghost
I would have preferred this over another Shadow Sneak Bumblebee.
Superquad7
GEARS!!!! YEEEEEEAAAAHHHH BOYYYIIEEEE!

I'd be all over the Bumblebee mold redecoed as Autorooper. I'd get a ton to make a squad of Autotroopers! Missed opportunity? Nah, I'd rather have some police cars.
