I like the packaging but not a fan of the figures themselves, "Arcee" is the only one im somewhat interested in. She doesnt look bad & id use her as chromia. So whats the size like are they small like DOTM or are they a good size like classics?

Those arm blades are going to be removable/replaceable with some well placed rare earth magnets once I get my hands on her. Same technique will probably go into her shoulder "wings". I'm stoked about this line. I'm thinking I'm going to return some of the DOTM randoms I picked up even though I was second guessing them. Can't wait to take pics of my own tomorrow. :grin:

First Edition, eh? I hope these aren't difficult to find, because I want them. BADLY.

They look amazing. Hells yeah.

I don't really like that packaging, but hey, it's what's on the inside that counts! :lol:

And it's still way better than Cybertron's packaging was. Now there was some bad packaging.

I'm pretty sure those are just attached by pegs, so removing them won't be too hard. :D

Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
Quite pleased at how good these figures look without all of Hasbro's Photoshoppery (it's a word!) As others have said it's rare that we get a Transformers motorbike that looks so good in both modes, so I find it amazing that I think Arcee may be the best of the three. I greatly enjoyed Transformers: Prime's debut mini-series, even if the main show is somewhat mediocre.

Whether or not I go for this line will depend heavily on what its top tier Optimus Prime and Megatron will be like. And also which other Transformers products are around at the time as price will be a issue, especially considering TFC Project Deva.

There are more pictures of Optimus Prime, Megatron and the SDCC Matrix packaged Optimus Prime. This brings the images in the Tranformers Prime Gallery to 86.

That Megatron... is that the one that comes with Prime plus the kids or is this another one altogether? :???: And I also like how they reversed Drift's colors in his Shattered Glass counterpart. :x :APPLAUSE:

Transformers Prime Arcee, Megatron and Starscream look badass. Optimus Prime still looks like a Fast Action Battler. Hasbro should replace all the grey with silver and lengthen the back of the truck.

If it's the two pack with OP and the human figs, it's deluxe class, set for release in July.

According to TFwiki, the TF Prime line will be be released in December 2011. If I recall correctly, there's a Voyager OP in the works, and almost definitely a voyager Megatron as well. Deluxe Soundwave is confirmed, and he is said to come with the bat drone that fits in his chest, and it doubles as a blade-weapon.

A voyager would be nice, but I really want a leader. I hope Hasbro doesn't decide to skip out on leaders for this line, as there is a lot of potential for some great figures. I'll have to get Soundwave as well. I like his look in the show, but I do wish he would actually talk, especially since Frank Welker is on the cast.
