    Because I would have said the same thing for that thread. Why does it bother you so much that it seems to bother me so much? So we can have another thread with a lot of spam posts that someone wanted to jump the gun and start so they could say hey it was me that started that thread. Because at this point any posts here are pretty much the same as those in the threads for the news article.

    I'm strangely on board with Jazz ( probably cause OMFG962RAWR) even though I have the superb United Jazz. (And RTS floating around in a bin somewhere. )

    Unff, that Rodimus Prime looks good. But god damn, I wish they'd find a way to make panels on the underside of arms fold away or be less intrusive. That was my one gripe with Combiner Wars Rook.

    Also, I wanted this thread to be positive (I.E appreciative) to weed out all of the negative posts.

    But, unfortunately on these boards, you can never completely escape that.

    Just incase anyons hasn't figures our the gimmick/fiction of the line yet. The Primes have created avatars for themselves that have awoken and become a manifestation of their power. The Matrix Frames come with removeabls cores because the Prime Masters like Leige Maximo aren't mean to turn into heads, they turn into alternate cores for the Matrix! So by doing this, and harnessing the Matrix, you will gain the Power of The Primes!

    Absolute awesomeness! Leige Maximo's avatar being Skullgrin is a homage to his original design back in the G2 comics.

    On a personal note I have always been enthralled by Primus, The Matrix, and the Thirteen so this is a dream come true for me! Ontop of that, Rodimus Prime is my favorite character and he's getting a new figure. Plus I've waited years for a proper voyager Starscream and I love this new Beefscream and am excited to see him in combined mode.

    I like how Hot Rod just straddles his trailer and bends over at the waist to form Rodimus Prime, both the genius of the engineering and the implications. The best thing I could have thought before now was a Fansproject Protector-style add-ons where it's just boots, arms that connect to the shoulder, add-on chest plate and new head.
    All of those basic symbols would look -ahem- prime for Functionalists.

    So, Primal's also getting the Leader class treatment? Gotta wonder how they'll pull the deluxe-->leader growth.

    It's a neat idea.

    I'd prefer full figure representations of the Primes though. Just saying :D

    So the voyagers are combiner cores and the deluxes are limbs again? Not sure how I feel about that, Starscream looks like he could use some paint though.

    Oh, god yes. TR made me so happy with actually interesting transformations. Not knocking CW, but I don't need to see that system again unless it's for Abominus and the Seacons.

    With potp incorporating cw and tr a combined thread seems logical.

    That is what I plan to use them for. They all look like creepy faces and will be great for making strange new transformers.
