    Where to begin, where to begin...well, I hate all non-mechanical TFs, so I recuse myself from any discussion about Primal. Unicron looks pretty sweet, nice to see design homages to himself in there.

    Blender? Pathetic. Another horrible Giant planet mold, that's 3 for 3. That design team needs to get fired but quick. I mean, his arms...he just has a wrist on his head and one in the air, for his alt mode!

    And hey, way to screw up Astrotrain's alt modes, boys! I am a HUGE Astro fan, and the robot mode is great, and this neo-G1 line is every TFan's wet dream, but stapling two train halves to the side of a shuttle does NOT make for a good alt mode. Neither does gluing a rectangle with wings to the back of a bullet train.

    I'm really not a bitter TFan, for real, I buy just about everything...but PLEASE let the next few molds for NG1 be better than this.

    And Giant planet: burn in hell, you expensive, twisted wreck alt-mode muthas. :ev:

    Does Unicron's alt mode remind anyone else of a Zerg drone?

    This sold me more on Unicron. It looks like the mold is fairly cool. "Blender" looks really good here compared to the botcon 05 showing as well. I don't mind the Primal so much, the beast mode definitely is kind of weird but I think the robot mode sculpt is good enough. I know lots of people would rather have the originals repainted better like Takara released, but I think this is a case where uniqueness is welcome.

    BW Neo Unicron is up as well! That planet mode and its near perfect roundness is really stunning. Think they'll ever consider releasing it?

    Anyone know what Unicron's deal is in the Galaxy Force storyline? I thought he was completely obliterated in Energon.

    Wonder if we'll see the rest of the Transtech proto's as well. :thumbs2: 

    Oh yeah, definately loving the other proto's, even Primal (he'll be a replacement for BM Primal anyways :D  ).

    Looks like a cool bunch. Still got a few issues with Crab-Walk Primal though.

    The story basiclly is that unicron CAN'T be destroyed, that the black hole is sort of a prison for him, and when it's finally closed he will be reborn, albeit in a significantly smaller weaker form.

    I love Blender, but I want him in Deluxe size in Constructicon colors, since Universe and Energon cheated me out of a Mixmaster.

    Agreed! AAOP is the best Primal ever. He's just up there joined by MPOP as the best OPs ever....

    Baby Unicron looks very interesting :)  I am sold on him already. Quickmix looks alright, too. What size is he going to be?

    Quickmix is a Mega, I think, unless Menasor is the Mega, in which case Quickmix is the Ultra.

    So... whats with the dustpans on Primal's feet (his hands, in beast mode)? I've been wondering this ever since I saw his picture in the newsletter, and they just look completely out of place.
