    Wow 3A showed up, that was unexpected. Megatron looks awesome. I guess all these guys will have long legs

    I like his body... however, his head looks pretty bad, and his arm gun is too big.
    (Takara\'s head is spot on, and so is his arm gun)

    Optimus looks like he got hit with the Ver. KA stick once or twice.

    Why does TFW constantly call things statues that full fledged figures? Im sure there's alot to go through today ect but if I was doing it I definitely wouldn't not.know what im talking about ;) 

    Still I appreciate the pictures bc I have been excited for these it's the first Prime where you can take off his wheel legs and his legs will ACTUALLY look like cartoon legs for once. Pretty cool lmo

    I think it looks wicked!
    The face could be less elongated in my opinion, but it still looks great!

    Starscream looks fantastic! Definitely my favorite design out of all 4 four of these 3A figures. That said, I do wish he was a bit bigger to perhaps better match up to Megatron. He doesn't seem 100% accurate to scale in comparison to Optimus or Megs (Bumblebee is way too big and out of scale himself, and should only stand about half the height of Optimus; probably my biggest reason for passing on him). Just comparing Starscream's cockpit canopy to Megatron's truck wheels set off my out-of-scale meter. :D 

    Still, He's my most anticipated figure and can't wait to get him in December alongside Optimus and Megatron! I wonder if 3A will offer Starscream in his first movie F-22 Raptor camo color scheme (but probably not since 3A only has the DOTM license). I would break down and get that version too.

    As for the G1 offerings, they're a bit too overly stylized for my tastes. I don't particularly care for Prime's giant feet or Megatron's weird head sculpt, so those are a pass for me (neat light up effects though). In that regard, I really wish 3A had stuck to continuing their DOTM figures instead. I would love a Shockwave, Barricade, Soundwave, Ironhide, Sideswipe, or Sentinel Prime.

    Looks awesome! Took a bit but 3A G1 prime has really grown on me. I think I'm all in for these guys.

    Aww man....
    Now that you mentioned that, my eyes keep comparing Starscream's cockpit to the others.

    Still loving Screamer though and looking forward to mine arriving.
    Like many, I hope they continue with the licence or at least pick up ROTF so that we get an Ironhide and Tank Megatron.
    Judging by the serial numbers on the shipping cartons, their DOTM line is selling well. Megatron trailing the pack though.

    Hope they stay far away from AOE except for maybe Lockdown and OG Bumblebee.

    I don't like Megatron's head, especially, but I really like the purple lines on the gun when it's all lit up.

    I actually like their G1 interpetations- but not for the kind of money these cost.

    You really can;t seriously look at Starscreams canopy in pretty much any setting though. The only pairing I've seen that actually might cut it would be DMK/Prime 2.0 next to leaderclass because DMK is smaller scale details than leader class prime even though he's the same height.

    As far as AOE BB's- it's a shame they can't do 60's BB. He looks very different than the one they did, but it's mostly paint. I think they'd only have to change out a handful of car parts for it to be correct.

    Anyone else see Megatron's face is oddly... too pretty. I keep thinking there's a Handsome Jack deal going on.
