I think this will be the first Alt that I leave in vehicle mode.......
I like how this thing looks considering its Hasbros first attempt at a true truck.
I'm not a great Photoshop artist at all,
but I had to see if it'd work...
-ZacWilliam, who likely won't buy it as Prime, but
would *DEFINATELY* pick it up this way.
I'll buy it, as I am enjoying the Alt line, as it's cheaper for me to collect than the main line (less figures).
Y'know, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if they remold him into Megatron at some point...(Takara would need a "name" character to sell the remold too, wouldn't they?)
I still need more pics to form a proper opinion. The plastic looks very cheap, but that's partly because of the flash, and maybe because this is still a prototype.
I hope Takara's still doing a BT version, that'll probably look a little better.
And somebody please transform this thing correctly!
This here picture from an earlier news story looks better, with the legs upside-down.
okay, how the f..
front leg panels. upside down.
This is exactly why the Japanese should stay away from the Alternator line.
Simply because they don't like trucks we end up getting a shitty Prime instead of a decent Trailbreaker, Kup or Ironhide.
I want to see size comparison pics-- how much bigger is this dude in comparison to the other Alts?
"Oi'm da biggest, so dat makes me da boss!"
Yeah seriously, how the hell did they pull that off??? I'm thinking assembly error??? Or late design change??? WTF???
These latest pics with the leg panels upside down look SILLY now that I notice it...
That is definitely the way it was supposed to be...
If the Japanese stay away from the Alternators line like you suggest, we might not have the line at all...
Looks decent, but something's bothering me. Where's the freakin' GUN?!
Well, now that we know he has knees and that we've finally seen pics better than the ones from Botcon weekend, Prime seems much better.
Though, like most of you, I want pics that show off articulation and the proper transformation before I decide.
Hmmm...the legs totally look upside-down in the new photo. Prime's trademark 'leg vents' should be down closer to his feet like in the earlier photo. There must be some sort of slide assembly inside the truck bed that allows it to be positioned either way. I have no idea how the logistics of that would work, but...I don't know. Weird.
It's not the best Prime ever, but I like it enough to buy and fiddle with.
There isnt one thing I like about this Fig.
The decepticon alternators are gonna kick the scrap out of this thing so it can be rebuilt into Ironhide.
Wow, that's just sweet. I can't wait to get him.
Glad so many people hate him. That'll make finding him all that much easier
I can understand the complaint some have about poor Optimus' legs and his overal appearance. I plan on using one of my extra Optimus' and a Skids head to make my own Ironhide.
i agree but it is spelt ginrai
as for the mold itself. i think it needs knee articulation and less chunky looking legs
Hasbro's official Botcon release photos:
The engine is sitting next to the truck in vehicle mode, and OP is holding it as the gun in his left hand in bot mode. (Likely some painting left to be done.)
Definitely NOT Sideswipe's engine.
Looks great. I love pick-up trucks.
