Preordered all the new Primes today.
Preordered Hightower x2. Looking large for a deluxe.
Damn! Hightower is one big deluxe boi!
Okay, good to know I can pass on Voyager prime and just get the two leaders. Tbh if that wasnt the case I'd probably pass on the leader prime just to save on money, but since he works with both hes more than worth getting for that extra cost.
So they have ss38 oprimus prime but no rampage?
I love John Warden. He always seems genuinely excited to talk about the toys and demo the features. Like he's put his heart and soul into them. The figures have moved in a more collectorish direction (Jetfire having a flippable symbol, for example) but are still designed with kids in mind with fun gimmicks that are not especially intrusive. They have really managed to find a good balance of late.
It's a far cry from when we'd see something in a slide at Botcon, and then possibly a glass cabinet, and that was your lot.
So looking at this, does Prime's jetpack from from pieces of the trailer, or is it separate? It's definitely not made out of the roof, but maybe the bottom?
I'm glad I never picked up either of the optimus's. I always wanted to, but other stuff was more pressing. I just put in my preorder for this entire wave. Really digging all of it.
Too movie accurate, these should be more toy accurate (blue text blue text lol).
No Long Haul???
Looks like DoTM Optimus is going to need a touch of paint in more areas than just his face. No problem, it is why I always have a bottle of Silver Testors on the desk!
He and Scrapmetal are probably not much bigger than Ratchet, Lockdown or the dreads; remember the car-formers are really small even for deluxe.
Someone should ask if the DotM OP ab piece is interchangeable with the one that came with Jetfire.
It is. That's why Jetfire came with it.
Need confirmation though
Just look at the official figure product description
8.5-INCH SCALE OPTIMUS PRIME: Figure is highly articulated, featuring vivid, movie-inspired deco, and includes 5 detailed accessories and trailer. Fans can add parts from the Studio Series 35 Leader Class Jetfire figure (sold separately, subject to availability) to this figure to form Jetpower Optimus Prime.
So, yeah, that's why Jetfire comes with the ab piece.
Great cool great yeah.
Okay KSI Boss doesn’t have head fuck off.
DotM Optimus doesn’t have the paint on his abs which I hope is fixed. Otherwise he looks great. Also I need to see him with the jetfire legs attached. That seems like it’d be really cool.
And Dropkick looks cool as well.
Yeah everything is great I got nothing.
So far now it pretty much looks like it\'s just the Constructicons for me. There\'s still a handful of figures I\'d like to see (even though I still love the RotF Voyager, I\'d kill for a SS The Fallen for instance), but we\'ve more or less been given most of what we really wanted from previous lines (leader Blackout and Voyager Bonecrusher immediately come to mind) and a handful of stuff we didn\'t (I liked the Nitro mold from TLK, but I really don\'t like it getting a premium paintjob then being shoved in here), but I\'m otherwise pretty happy with it. Granted, I still only have those first two leader figures and will probably not be getting much more, but that\'s more on me slowing down my purchases than disliking the line. I\'d also love a new Jolt figure, but mostly because I drive a Volt >_>
I like that Nitro has better paint, but if they had a chance to give him his more Shockwavey head, why didnt they? His head is removeable for crying out loud.
I'd like to order Dropkick and Hightower. However, I'm not too sure about shipping policy to Canada on Hasbro Pulse and BBTS, well I had a really bad experience with them.
