    So this is the actual Studio Series 102 Prime and just not the Buzzworthy release? It looks like there's been no improvement to the truck back section.

    Takara's Studio Series figures are identical to Hasbro's, just in different packaging. There aren't any differences to the figures themselves.

    Great to see more of Silverbolt. He continues to look fantastic.

    I still wanted to know who made the freaking decision to make US release of SS-102 a Target exclusive. I want names. I mean look at that box and look at the ugly yellow Buzzworthy one.

    I’m more interested in the person who made the call to cancel it.

    Well at least there's a regular ROTB Optimus Prime release somewhere. Really hoping this comes over to the rest of the world as well.

    Hasbro ran out of available slots for the Studio Series Waves, and Optimus being Optimus, they still wanted to get him released while the hype for the film was still somewhat reminiscent, so they stuck him in the Buzzworthy line. Still have no clue why he was cut so short though.

    Would be cool if Hasbro adapted the fully closed box instead of exposing the figure.

    Agreed, close the boxes. There's not much point otherwise.

    God Rhinox looks so perfect.

    Thanks! The BzW version didn't have one. I thought TT added a freebie or something.

    Silverbolt looks awesome. I think he’s a must buy. That Deception three pack looks gray as well, though I’d love to be able to buy the Shockwave as a single release.

    Silverbolt’s description seems like a pretty clear hint that more Transmetal designs are coming. Although it’s funny that they say Silverbolt is “leading” this initiative since he’s not a Transmetal himself, and we already have TMII Megatron.

    That's kinda amusing when they could've used that blurb for Tigerhawk. But I'm glad they're outright saying more TM designs are coming.

    Nothing too exciting in the text about Rhinox. However, they do point out that his accessory is indeed Optimus’s spark, and that the single weapon storage in beast mode is an homage to the original toy.

    The buzzworthy release IS the actual SS 102 Prime

    Not happening, that release (in that box as such) is Japan exclusive. But you can order it on Amazon Japan quite easily, beats all eBay prices.

    It's the one that comes with Primal

    Not happening, Hasbro tried the closed box idea on 6 inch non tf figures and it failed on multiple levels (with lots of fans complaining) so they issued a statement saying windows are returning.

    Transformers kept open boxes and will keep them since they sell better to kids/parents.
