    Prime = Punny????

    Wait??? Did any body take a look at the face plate??? ts shorter, Iam not to sure if it is just resembling past primes, but remember the prime head for the movie that had the longer face??? This seems to be a shorter plate, but iam only assuming.

    I doubt that the Bumblebee we've seen is the Fast Action Battler.

    "I have HAD it with these MUTHAF*CKIN' 'CONS on this MUTHAF*CKIN' PLANET. Everybody buckle up. I'm opening some f*ckin' wormholes." *ch-CLATCH*

    I believe the string is because Prime's missile is actually supposed to be a grappling hook. His FAB listing had him down as "[Somethingorother] Hook Optimus", didn't it?

    EDIT: Yup. Lookit the third picture in the initial post. Hook-shaped missile-head? Check. String tied to missile? Check.


    And, re: Kyde's picture: ZOMG! I bet he means that middle Prime toy is only gonna cost $6.99!!!
    :p

    Well, if it's the deluxe version, it doesn't look any more detailed than the FABs.

    Perhaps not, but it does appear to have more moving parts. (IMO)

    How ironhide SHOULD look...

    Other than the dwarfish arms, I'm feelin' the look of ironhide. I dunno about the all black color scheme, though. He should look like this!

    I was just looking at the BB proto pictures and I'm 95% convinced it's the Fast Action Battlers version. Look at the hip area, similar to FAB Ironhide's, and you can see some kind of mechanism in the lower legs similar to the one we see on FAB Prime in the shoulder area. Add the painted windows, the unusual head and the definitely simplistic transformation... The only thing is that it looks a tad less kidsy than the other FABs.

    I think this Prime is great! Only because you'll be cruisin along in vehicle mode and CLICK one button & a quick flip he transforms inot robot mode automatically. Love it, & Ironhide sweet. These, IMO, are cool from the quick change AND articulation together.

    You're forgetting the white Stryker LAV guy and the other non-movie characters Hasbro are going to be making to pad out the line.

    The initial unpainted test shots we saw of that Bumblebee tooling had clear plastic parts for almost half of his car mode (doors, roof, rear end) - I figure that Hasbro realized that (essentially) painting half of the car parts yellow would put them over budget for that figure, so they changed it to solid yellow plastic and painted blue windows. I hope they change their minds and go back to the original plan, but I doubt it.

    Plus, the car's sculpt isn't somewhat super deformed like the FAB figures we've seen so far.

    Maybe rubbing some McGrease on the windows would make them clear again? :)

    Can anyone make out Ironhide's face? I can't seem to find it.

    The silver things are his eyes. His head is shaped like a bull.
