    Ok, so I'm thinking...

    1. Galvatron looks like the original post for the mini-fig Unicron eats, so not sure he's coming yet. If wave 3 is movie, then we see him in that wave IMO.
    2. Is that Sideswipe or Sunstreaker?
    3. Maybe the figure in the far space shot above the Ark is Scorponok.
    4. I want my Prime to have that scar.

    Nope. I preferred them yellow as well.

    You're taking my post out of context- don't assume.
    Personally, I liked the yellow better. Not only did they stand out well, they were reminiscent of the original toy.
    But, since they seem set on blue, I at least wish they stood out as well as the lighter blue in those pictures. They likely won't, as they haven't been that bright on the in-hand copies, and those stock pictures appear to photoshopped.

    I didn’t realize this Optimus had a Matrix. I can tell it’s definitely removable, because it’s upside-down.

    Bro I don't even know if I read your post. I was just wondering in general, as it would appear most people prefer blue eyes. Me it depends on the aesthetic and for whatever reason when early renders starting popping up I thought to myself "yellow eyes, yes that suits this mold." Edit. Oh apparently I did read your post and quote you. I didn't mean to come at you sideways. Again more just a general question.

    They looked really nice on it. For what it's worth, I had seen a lot of other people commenting that they preferred the yellow back when the first in hand copy showed up.

    I guess I just want a modern take on the toy deco for Prime. Doesn't have to be a spot on replica but a few of the design cues (like the yellow eyes) just come across as striking to me.

    as hasbro seem to be making definitive versions of the characters, i wonder if this will be the last lot of G1 bot for quite a while? theres no real way any of them can be made more G1, and not enough ways to improve them for a reissue. im sure we'll still get the occasional repaint, but this could be G1 chugs swansong

    but he can fire himself, he’s done it before, which makes being held odd,
    Honestly I kind of want them to turn Him into a sword Because then he’s been a fire arm and a Stabbing weapon

    I see your reasoning. This is going to this generations classics line, and things are going to get interesting.

    The image of Megatron floating around as a sword stabbing autobots is somehow hilarious to me.

    God it would be beautiful, especially if it was a mini figure that could be held by either an optimus,starscream or soundwave

    Honestly I like the tank Megatron from Siege just fine but if we're going G1 Earth mode and can't do a pistol, why not do a cannon that can be manned by another bot or by itself not too unlike Galvatron? We've seen that Hasbro has been willing to go THAT far at least.

    That immediately reminded me of Beth's pink sentient switchblade from Rick & Morty.


    If that transformed, it'd make a great IDW assassin Arcee, too. lol.

    Hey, it's a big multiverse. For all we know Rick made that switch blade with stolen decepticon technology.

    The pic of Doubledealer has a chest that looks like it'd be the perfect fit for a retooled Ratbat/Rumble.

    Just sayin'

    It's a shame we can't get BotBot versions of all those items. It'd be a nice surprise for Earthrise. lol.
    I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of tank mode Earthrise gives Megatron. If they want to really stun everyone, Hasbro could make him into a Cobra H.I.S.S. tank design, like the 2012 SDCC Shockwave deco.

    I never understood why hasbro didn't milk the hell out of transformers/GI Joe cross over stuff. I feel like there's a strong market. Could you imagine being able to get a massive rolling thunder convoy in scale with GI Joe figures. Like each set comes with a different part of Prime. The same concept can be carried over with decepticons. Idk if I'm seeing play value that isn't there but it seems like a really rad concept that's hard to mess up.

    Was thinking this might be things yet to come as the art work for siege depicted the Ark leaving but the story was they hadnt left yet, so this could be linking to part 3 or whatever just a hunch.
