    Hell yeah! Though I'd be fine with them doing that with TFP designs too. So far in my humble-but-not-as-humble-as-it-should-be opinion, Prime is the only worthy successor to G1 among all the continuities they've done.

    [Edit] Also, I'm not sure I trust any live action studio to get it right. Too much padding with the human characters to save on FX budget. Just give me more Transformers Prime :D

    The designs from Prime are fantastic. I was always a hardcore G1 guy, but even I will admit: Prime is the superior show, hard as those words are for me to spill out, lol

    I don't mind that a large amount of the film characters were not simply "humans with robot skins" or that didn't look like their Takara-Diaclone/Microchange. My problem with them were the vast majority of them were bad. Especially earlier on. Bumblebee is the sweet spot that took them years to get too.

    I hope Bumblebee himself gets redone; I'm not a fan of his less creepy Bayverse face and his bulbous proportions, he has the same shoe size as Optimus and has not abdomen.

    Yeah I think the top area/shoulders is too wide and flat from the top. Looks odd to me.

    I don't mind if Transcraft skips Blitzwing and then we will just mix and match MPMs between Transcraft and Cyberfactory.

    Toyworld's ThreeA scale is too big for me.

    As much as Bee Starscream was kinda rushed and put in the back, the toy really does show how great he could be if he was given enough time by the team to polish it.

    I can't believe we already have a grey prototype on display, I'm used to waiting months for just that

    Despite not being in the film that long, I really like this. Might get it depending on quality and price

    Hope they get the paintjob right as they progress. Their cg preview is lacking a lot and is closer to the concept version than to the movie. It's interesting to note that Starscream's appearance in the movie was actually different/updated when compared to the concept and behind the scenes views that often get reposted/referenced.

    The final movie version has much more red in the upper leg/hip area:

    The near-final version lacked the red "shorts" and still had the visor:

    Remember the early trailer when he still had more Blitzwing parts and a lot more blue/white paint:
    [​IMG]

    Here's the concept:

    And here is the cg preview of this toy (which I assume still has a lot of paint detail to be added later):
    [​IMG]

    I think the headsculpt still needs work too to match the movie version. Proportions of the facial features aren't there yet.

    It looks like the physical prototype on display has two distinct eyes. Optional heads maybe?

    not sure why they're going with Starscream first instead of Blitzwing but i am VERY interested to see how this turns out.

    The listing does show optional heads but I'm mainly talking about the paintjob.
