    Looks cool aside from the huge head, & kibbletastic truck parts. Grill aside, this might be the most movie accurate Prime that transforms. Articulation looks good, but I wonder what his weaponry is?

    I'd gladly pick this and Bumblebee up, they look like fun toys. Most comparable to REVS, but done right, since Haskara knows how to make transforming toys right. They seem like super articulated movie g1 Pretender homages.

    Prime looks worlds better with paint and yes damnit, he looks fun too.

    I might get him, if my bank account hasn't already been decimated by the twin hammers of animated and Universe 2.

    Arcee actually looks good in "OMG GeewunNnnn!" colors.

    Trans-scanning...wow. That looks pathetically (almost comically) bad.

    Transcanning Prime looks as if he is battle damaged with all those holes in his legs, etc. Maybe they will incorporate them into his paint scheme, with oil coming out from them. The entry mode hopefully will have additional snap on parts as well because that looks like hell. Would probably buy if on the store shelf but will not to import it yet. I'll need to wait for more details before I spend that kind of money on him.
    Arccee looks nice for the KISS line, all we need is a gay boy figure to put on her back. IMO

    Love Arcee in G1 colors. Too bad it's an exclusive to a show in Japan. :( 

    The Transcanning in color does look good. Still waiting for final pics to decide though.

    This trans-scanning prime looks pretty cool. Non of the movie figures were accurate, accept for the robot replicas.

    This figure does show a lot of promise, and has a really cool gimmick. If they arrive to the American market they'll be a definite purchase. :thumbs2:

    I think they might, their boxes looked the same as voyager boxes here, and had english printed on them, so I think they will make it here too.

    Didn't early images of trans-scanning OP and BB have pieces that attach to make a cometary/protoform mode?

    Also, how big are they supposed to be?
