Should be GEARS!!!
I still feel that there's some mistransformation going on there. but I agree, a swindle head on the black version of this would require just a few touch-ups to make a great trailbreaker, if we're not getting an official one down the line.
Yeah then Gears would have the right to complain about anything and everything he wanted.
Now if they remold it as a Daytona Ram and paint it orange and black and call it Rodimus, I'll buy it.
As prime he can join Skids and Ricochet on the lists of alts I am skipping.
It looks orange...but that's the camera light. But Is till don't like it, it doesn't look like a Prime.
I'm thinking the same thing ... but ... you know a figure is bad when it looks mistransformed, but it's not.
I think he looks good. Granted, he could have looked alot better (give him some knee caps for crying out loud). But I really like that head sculpt and the colour scheme works nicely. He just needs better legs.
Paint him blue and silver, he would make a lovely Kup.
Umm. Okay. This would work for Gears or maybe even Ironhide but I am not diggin it for Optimus Prime.
another good idea.
I think we all carry attacments and expectations to the name "Optimus Prime". This feels like a disgrace towards the franchise player in the Transformers brand.
I don't like the shoulders. It looks kinda weird with the kibble sticking up there.
Any chance we can see the back of him? I'd like to see how his legs look. I'm guessing they're hollow as they're the bed of the truck.
however, if this was actually designed in japan as Ginrai, it's NOT Optimus Prime. even though Ginrai looked just like another Prime it wouldn't have to follow those conventions. I think if we all remember that, we'd be a lot happier.
but please folks, let's not have this thread turn into another hasbro messed this up/takara = teh fool like the thread from two weeks ago about this being cancelled, ok?
that is terrible. alternators are supposed to have a decent robot mode, what the hell is that junk on the shoulders? and the knees, goddamm. the ball has been dropped on alternators recently and this just proves it.
i like it myself...
I like it too.
I want to shoot takara in its knees for not making this trailbreaker, and then shoot them again for not making it a BT....
It looks more agreeable to me now...has a lower torso, nice head sculpt, though the legs still look mistransformed.
Bah, I know I'll be picking this up anyhoo.
Me I'd redo the head and make this Ironhide. I'd rather buy 20th Prime (if I could find him) then this.
is there a chance the legs arent fully extended and the shoulders are mis-transformed? that'd at least give me a glimmer of hope.
I'll get the repaint. I'm not liking the red and blue.
Well, I really like it. I'm sure the red and the blue will look better in final production. They just seem washed out by the camera. I bid on a G2 Grimlock thinking it was turquoise in the picture but when i got him he was blue. The camera had just washed out the picture.
I like him. A lot. Seems pretty obvious that the shoulderpads are miss-transformed in some way, but even as is I think he looks cool. Seems to fit Prime just fine, IMO.
