The Optimus is proberly a homage to the unreleased G2 combat hero Optimus prime because of the blue and red colour scheme and having a :G2BOT:and :BOT:
I don't like him because he looks meh :SICK:
Jazz isn't that bad but the Reprolabels G2 Jazz upgrade sticker set when applied to him looks better than this version but still quite good.
With the legands I'm not bothered because I've got one of them allready.

They dont look too bad. Even though it may be a homage the dual logos on prime still doesnt look right in my eyes. :MAXIMAL:

maybe these are the mockups... and the real ones will have the correct tampos. Hope so. Would prefer the G2 logos all around. If they aren't present, will get repro ones to fix it, I suppose.

These will display wonderfully with that G2 Botcon set. Not to mention, this makes a great stand in for Diaclone Convoy. :grin:

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
The dual logos are probably intentional, as the first G2 repaints of G1 toys had both symbols present as well. The G2 symbols were usually hidden in the legs however.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

I'm a bit confused. Are the Asian exclusive legends still coming to TRU or are these the only way to get Motormaster and Thundercracker?

I was thinking that I would want them to more strictly adhere to the old G2 Jazz design... but looking at it again and comparing, I'm glad they gave it a little facelift. That old design is pretty over the top. Looks like someone went nuts with the rainbow colors and sticker-fied it all over. Wugh. Too much.

Really liking the Jazz repaint, as usual with repaints of that toy. They can just slap any old colours on that thing and it looks good. Toss a sticker or some paint over the spoiler and he could be someone else though. Searchlight maybe?

Prime is almost okay, again, as usual with this mold and repaints of it, they get 87% of the way there, then screw something up. It's not actually the G1/G2 logo clash that puts me off, but the horrible teal. Doesn't go well at all.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Looks like we have some scale issues (Prime, TC and Motormaster are supposed to be the same size while Jazz is supposed to be shorter than them).

They are not supposed to be in scale being as they are two different size classes of figures. Prime and Jazz are deluxe while Motorbreath and Thundercracker are legends.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

meh jazz is an officer so he should have a smg type weapon at the least....he wouldn't look right with a bfg like optimus has though, but no way does that pistol work, at least for me.

I like that Jazz much less than I expected to. Legends, I don't collect. That Prime is a cool concept of a cool figure that wasn't produced but I still don't think I need one. If I were to find them marked down eventually, I might pick up a set. Not at $40 for figures I don't actually need though.

Not sure how I missed this, but I got my pre-order in. Compared to other exclusive sets, TFCC for example, this is very reasonably priced, and they are very nice looking redecos.

Man that G2 Jazz is boss! I had a G2 Jazz back in the day, always liked how he looked. This is a welcome repaint!

As for that Prime... like I know with the name and colours he's SUPPOSED to resemble that unreleased G2 Hero Prime... but I can't look at him without thinking of Armada Powerlinx Optimus Prime

Same, but this mold with the BTS Battle Tanker kit is pretty awesome, albeit expensive ($104.99 at the usual spots.)

ReproLabels made an awesome sticker kit for Battle Tanker. Even cooler if they made a few different ones for the redeco's.

i have been wondering about this one since it was reported.
while the Legends size guys i am not that interested in, the dlxs intrigue me quite a bit.
at least with WM, i have a shot of getting this for a decent price.
