    My gut reaction to this is, "premium decos for some Movie 1 Autobots, please!" I'd love a Prime tricked out with apps like the various JP releases of ROTF Leader, and a Ratchet with... well, with more than just a few spots of silver. Curious to see how large (or small) this line will be.

    I saw "Premium Finish" and thought I'd see automotive red paint and vac-metal on Prime. I was wrong.

    This is kind of cool. Depending on the figure I guess

    Takara Prime is the 3zero optimus statue alternative that many people asked for.

    I’m not seeing where the premium is tbh. I was expecting something shiny.

    Good luck Takara! Not for me but I'm sure you'll capture an audience.

    This Siege Optimus looks so good. I might honestly get it, and if we get a Megatron with better and even more silver paint than the Netflix one, I might get him too.

    If all of the WFC characters that really should be in SS86 get released in this line without the bird poop, it’ll either cost me a fortune or drive me away for good with about equal odds.

    Reminds me a little of the old Takara Adventure line. Some repaints of mainline stuff that Hasbro clearly wasn’t interested in doing, like a Constructicon Scoop or a movie-deco Animated Lockdown. It was a good way to get some less common repaints a little cheaper, at least.

    So it’s a redone SS BB movie Bee, but one of those tiny little images of Bee shoes what is fairly likely an ankle rocker. Something that figure (to my knowledge) doesn’t have.

    Lies, or did they redo the able to go along with the extra paint?

    assuming this doesn't flop i think the ss line mostly focus on the bumblebee movie.

    if they do end up doing offroad bee i hope they use the battlemask head, i'm 98% positive they planned to give him the battlemask instead but realized they could change it to make people buy cybertron bee

    If we get a more 86 film accurate Galvatron with no damage in this line, I'll get that too.

    you know you can just google a photo of the toy before making assumptions like it doesn’t have a specific point of articulation

    Not at all, Takara have still been releasing exclusives, and all this is, is a Takara exclusive line.

    But as i said previously, this will not replace the main line, and will simply be a sub line.

    I’m not interested in the Siege Optimus (the one I have is fine) but I’m interested in that movie Bumblebee. I don’t collect the movie figures, and I’m not keen on the aesthetic for most of them, but Bumblebee is the exception. I’ve even considered the MPM but this holds up well.

    yeah people are thinking that this a return to force by takara but in reality it’s more than likely replacing Takaras versions of selects. They just wrapped the fiction they were telling with that line so it’s highly likely this is TT Generarions Selects under a new name.

    Actually I was going off a review I watched just 2 days ago that said there wasn’t any ankle articulation because the shin tabs into the leg.
