    They shoud've used this Prime for the Optimus and Megatron battle pack instead of the crappy one they sold.

    I don't see what the big deal is. Other than size and details, it's more or less the same toy. You guys are getting all lathered up because you can't have it :p 

    I wonder if it retained Don's original smokestack concepts.

    But this is a TakaraTomy book. Hasbro hardly ever shows prototypes of things they didn't end up making.

    I've never seen that before. Would have been nice to get that one. Anybody else notice the missing parts on the robot mode. The leg piece that covers the wheels is missing but is there in vehicle mode.

    The smokestacks flipping out would not work. If you look at the actual classics prime mold, the part that those flipping smokestacks would be, are on the top of prime's forearms. so it would not work underneath the arms, since when you transform it into cab mode, the smokestacks wont be in the right position.

    Exactly, it looks nice and all but I am really not bothered by it.

    It doesn't bother me at all either. While I would have liked to see a deluxe Prime like that, I certainly wouldn't trade it for the Voyager we got.

    Well, I wouldn't have wanted a trailer either (unless it was a Powermaster trailer), but I'm kind of biased on getting a good deluxe Prime being that it's my favorite size class and we've never really got a good one.

    I always assumed that the arms would have transformed slightly differently to accommodate this feature. Can't really say now though.
