Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff?

Courtesy of 78dm.net we have an extensive gallery of Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager Optimus Prime. This figure is a brand new mold featuring "Beast Hunters" signature spiky armored style, and also see Optimus Prime returning to a cab-over type of truck. He comes with packed with two Ionic Pulse Launchers and the Star Saber.
For size comparison the figure has been posed with Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" Voyager Optimus Prime, as you can see the "Beast Hunters" mold appears to be quite a bit beefier. A couple of the images also feature his wavemate "Beast Hunters" Voyager Predaking, so more images of him are likely forthcoming.
Motto:"Ultimately, I serve one master: pure logic!"
Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
I planned on Smokescreen (and maaaaybe Starscream) to be my only Beast Hunters figure. Now that we know he actually looks really cool, guess I gotta fish out another twenty bucks. They better make an equally-bulky-and-badass Megatron.
I'm so happy they finally ditched the MechTech-like weapon. Stupidest idea ever.
Many thanks to Godzillabot Primal for this epic signature!

This figure looks more and more like a good idea with bad execution.
I want to like this figure, but it just looks too simple. It doesn't even appear as though the feet can be placed flat.
This would be better as a Deluxe.
This must be a move on Hasbro's part to purposefully dumb down TFs; I can't imagine that the toy designers could get this bad at making interesting, poseable TFs in only a few years, especially after seeing the level of complexity in the ROTF figures and post-ROTF Generations figures.
my thoughts on Hasbro's current marketing strategy is above.
