    Hey, let's try to have a discussion without immediately dividing fans into two absolute groups.



    I wish there was a definitive rusty Prime. Neither one is 'good enough': both trucks look great, but the Farmageddon one is too dark (helmet, legs) in robot mode, this one is too light. Was/am still leaning to this one, but those red blotches definitely kill my hype a bit.

    I was on the fence earlier, but I went ahead and cancelled my Takara pre-order. I wanted to hold off until more details and price were announced on that Farmegeddon set but I think I will try to go after that set regardless. Like it was just mentioned he does look a bit too dark with the legs and helmet and he does have the open face but I think he looks he does look better in robot mode than Rashimus Prime.

    Also, just to show it's not all hate on this figure, I needed to weed out some figures because August was already too expensive to begin with and still is, but this is $65 I can put toward something else next month like MP Wheeljack.

    Pretty much. I was actually excited about this guy.

    Now I'm actually not getting him.

    He was never accurate exactly, but he looked damn cool. This not so much.

    I feel like such a hipster; I called out that bland bot mode before it was cool :D 
    I think for a "perfect" evasion prime you just need Hasbro's version but swap all the black parts to blue (or do the same with Takara's) and then you're pretty much set. On screen he's pretty sandy but the parts that were blue or silver before were still blue or silver on the Evasion mode as well

    This is crazy; the original is better than this unpainted laziness.

    Laziness? Are you looking at the same toy? This one has far, far, far more paint apps than the original, or even the Hasbro Farmageddon, even if it has less vibrant colours. Arguing otherwise is simply incorrect.

    Except many folks (myself included) can't do custom work to save our lives.:lol 


    Ah well, hopefully I can sell mine off once it arrives.

    I really like the mold though and since I passed on the G1 colored Evasion Prime, the rusty version is the only one that I want.. Already pre-ordered the Autobots United set as well so I will have the G1 colored Evasion Prime as well actually...

    It looks like he's not bone white but more yellow/brown

    More paint apps on the vehicle mode, but it looks like there was virtually no thought put into the bot mode. At least Farmageddan Prime has the black parts that make it look much less plain in bot mode and doesn't take away from the alt mode and even if it's not as rusted as Takara's it still has enough of a weathered look in alt mode. No right or wrong there but I'm finding that bot mode lazy as well

    Eh... I bought this guy for his alt mode, which still looks good IMO. Fairly disappointed in his bot mode.

    It looks like whoever took the photo had a bloody nose and dripped all over Optimus in robot mode
