    I'm planning to get the earth rise OP because it looks great sans the gray fists.
    I'm hoping for 3P to cast the hands in blue since there's enough outcry to warrant a correction.
    If not I'll probably partially paint the outsides although paint rub is hell to deal with.
    Maybe something better comes along to custom the fists with at a later time.

    For those of us unwilling or unable to collect every figure, is TFW planning to collect and assemble all the map sections?

    We don't really know anything about them yet, there may not be a unique piece with every figure. That would be a huge map and a lot of work for a bonus item.

    It would take a 3P upgrade kit including:
    - blue hands
    - blue leg panels
    - new accurate combat deck drone (blue and with radar dish instead of with two claws)
    - Roller
    - new cartoon-accurate head
    to get me to buy Earthrise Prime. Maybe throw an energon axe in there for good measure.

    This. 10x this. Transformable bases are a stroke of genius, and gives us baseformers outside of the citybots.

    Cheers, @SG Roadbuster!

    Those Prime grey hands are terrible. I guess if that’s final I’m cancelling the 2 I ordered.

    I swear a commander Thunderwing can pull off double duty as Thunder Arrow (in the same way a hypothetical Omega Sentinel would nail Rocket Base)

    Yes. Give me Hot House, Greasepit, and Airwave as well as the Micromasters of the same names to accompany the first two bases. This I command.

    WTF is wrong with selling a voyager and a trailer for the price of a leader class? if you think you deserve a free trailer ..... then damn you have problems with reality.

    If you are so OCD that you need the hands the right color, how did you get into transformers toys because hasbro has always done something that's not entirely animation accurate.... and damn we got by for 35 years with it..... you can get by with it for another figure right?

    Yeah, and if you get a burger with mayo and pickles after asking for none, you should just get by on that too!

    I think the problem for Earthrise Prime is just that we’ve had so many great Optimus toys in the past year (Siege, SS BB movie, MP3) that the bar is pretty high for him right now. This release looks good, but not great, so there’s some disappointment with tiny details that we’d normally be comfortable overlooking.

    thats not an adequate analogy and you know it, especially considering at restaurants you can request alterations to meals, generally with no additional cost added and food is generally made to order, not mass produced.

    a better analogy would be you buying a frozen supreme pizza while being aware you dont like olives and then complaining about there being olives plainly visible on the frozen pizza you bought

    No, because those things are typically associated as a pizza topping.

    It would be more like someone putting out a frozen pizza with grapes as a topping. Grapes are not associated as a topping of pizza and nobody asked for it, so straying outside the known pizza toppings is a dumb move that shouldn't have happened to begin with. Sure, maybe some people out there won't mind or even like it, but let's not act like someone getting upset at receiving this instead of a traditional pizza is some nitpicking baby.

    Nobody asked for gray hands on a G1 Prime and it's not something that's typically been associated with a G1 Prime design. They messed up at the concept stage by not putting the hands on the same mold as the legs.

    Except the whole point of this figure is to be slavishly animation-accurate. Making the hands grey is a rookie and downright confusing mistake.

    27 pages later, still bitching about grey hands. Imagine being that miserable about a toy when you could just...I dunno...not.

    Still true:

    I agree. I think the mold actually looks cool, but not just the fact that his arms are grey, but the repair drone as well is what’s killing it for me. Not sure why they couldn’t have used the blue plastic like they already have for his legs.

    I honestly didn’t even mine it on either my POTP Prime or SS-38 Prime, because it was a minor thing on versions that were not ‘exactly’ G1 Prime. But this is basically a near-perfect representation of G1 Prime, in the correct size, in his earth mode with trailer, even. It just bugs me now. No worries tho, I’m sure either Hasbro or Takara will figure it out eventually and release a premium/animation version...I’ll just buy that then. :D 

    Anyway, not sure where this sudden problem with ‘unpaintable plastic’ has come from - same had happened to Siege Barricade.
