    I couldn't be happier. Prime will hopefully salvage the flick for those who cry themselves to sleep each night, clutching an Arcee toy, and wake up screaming "IT'S NOT A CARTOON! I CUT MYSELF!" :p

    Wow, cool poster. Out of all the designs we've seen so far, I think Prime's is the most successful. They actually retained enough resembalance to the original.

    Every time I see an image of the Prime design I want to know what it looks like in action. That, to me, is a good sign.

    The little pink motorcycle from Energon, or a kitbashed blow up doll, whatever floats your boat.

    Prime looks pretty good, I was alittle worried about the flame design. I'm waiting to see actual pics of Megatron and Starscream. Has anyone said what type of jet Starscream will be?

    Wow! That *IS* Optimus Prime.

    It looks cool, imposing and powerful. Cannot wait to see him in action. Cannot wait to see the toy... if Hasbro manages to pull a Blackout out of this (similar enough to the design, but good looking tfing toy), then everything's ok in my book.

    I don't get the hate with the gun though. Looks f*ing cool to me.

    Thank you! Of all the characters, robots and the like, that some people have compared the movie designs with, Bionicle is one of the two I don't see a similarity with. The other is Evangelion.

    C'mon youve got to admit that there are some similarities... though very small. :p

    Images are down (haaalp), but I still can see the teeny one a few posts up...looks sweet. The gun invokes adoration and worship.

    The Prime design is definitely the best we've seen. Still, best of a bad bunch isn't saying much. He looks much better in the more Uniform Red and Blue. Still don't see the need for his entire upper arms to be exposed, or most of his calf fronts. 'Spose I'll have to chalk that one up to "OMGWESNEEDTEHREALIZNMMMM!!!!!111".

    Prime looks pretty sweet. Crazy to think of Cullen's voice coming from that. :D

    Very readily acceptable.

    But it still bugs me how closely they stuck to Prime's head design for the movie but not for everybody else.

    I like it! I liked his arm when I saw it and now I like the robot. Although they could do better, Bionicle Prime is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more recognizable than Megatron or Starscream. Or Bumblebee, for that matter. The big-ass gun is great! Naturally, I've seen only the one without the flames, since the first picture is out of bandwidth, but even with flames I suppose they did a passable job. I wouldn't mind if they kept changes to that level. But Megatron and Starscream *HAVE* to go. I'd rather have a Bionicle Seeker than that stupid Monkeyscream.

    Yay! Something about the movie that doesn't suck!

    It's funny that the only mark that Bay has managed to hit properly is Prime: decent design and awsome voice casting. They could change the title to The Adventures of Optimus Prime on the Island of Misfit Toys
