    i am not too sure if its needed for the transformation myself, but we will find out soon enough.

    and i would gladly take a shiny wingblade armor over no wingblade armor at all.

    Wingblade Prime looks fantastic. I don't even mind the whole glossy paint thing with that guy.

    And I'll be damned. Takara painted Chromia as Elita-1 with a more accurate purple scheme.

    So, WB Prime there is a clear figure?
    Nice. Kinda glad now that I didn't preorder it.
    Not seeing the appeal of clear figures.

    From pics we've seen of the transformation in hand (literally) it seems they are part of the transformation.

    Either way, hinged ankles kick ass.

    Me too, but I'd prefer good wingblade armour.

    I was all excited when I read "lights and sound ironhide". Then I remembered Bulkhead's name change.

    I would actually like to see a "third" faction in the transformers universe. There has to be more sides to the story, in a true civil war there are multiple sides not just two.

    The clear trend is getting a little out of hand.

    I'm not too keen on the idea of Wingblade Optimus Prime being clear. I was hoping for a regular version of him really so unless that happens I'm going to pass on getting him. Besides whats with all the clear Transformers lately from Japan? Anyway MP Rodimus is a no brainier I'm so getting him. Still want to know more on the Taraka
    s MP version of Battle Ops Bumblebee.

    Wingblade Prime is looking better everytime I see new pics of him - TFA is definitely going out with a bang! :D 

    But what's up with TakTom's Ironhide? Does he have both orangy-red & dark red paint aps on him? WTF?! :confused:

    It would have made more sense to have the armour clear as there has already been a clear Earth mode DX Prime packed with Clear Rodimus but not a non-battle damaged opaque Optimus Earth modes deluxe as far as I know.

    So now I really want a Hasbro version in opaque colours even more in the Generations/Universe line.

    My gut is telling me the wingblade parts aren't even compatible with the deluxe version - the TakaraTomy site makes no mention of it, there's new arms locking over the voyager hands...

    I think the idea stemmed from confusion based off of early photos. Regardless, even if it does the size difference will make it look absolutely ludicrous IMO

    The new arms are pegged into the hands, I believe.
    Since the Voyager and Deluxe have the same size peg holes, they should be compatible.

    Have you guys noticed the Sidearm Sideswipe in one of the picture? NO RED FLAME DECO! OMG. I'm actually one of the rare individual who actually likes the flames deco so I don't care that much, but I know a heap of people who will be more than happy to get this one over the Hasbro's version.

    Yes, also, the first images we saw of Wingblade Prime back... I want to say Botcon 09, showed the armor on the deluxe Earth mode Optimus mold. I can't be 100% sure, but it's likely the armor is compatible.

    Not at all. They offer all of these figures in regular colors if you want them. I like having the option to pick up a clear one too.

    Yep, back when WB Prime was still slated for a stateside release the set was supposed to be comprised of deluxe Prime and the armor (to be sold at the voyager price point).
    Hasbro mentioned at BotCon the armor was also compatible with the voyager mold.

    Takara releasing it with the voyager mold doesn't mean it shouldn't fit on the deluxe figure.

    Ahh you're all right, my memory is playing tricks on me.
    I only have the Cybertron OP Deluxe not Earth mode, but I was really expecting the parts to look silly on the Deluxe size toy. Doesn't appear to be the case though:
