Alt mode is utter crap but the robot mode is so much better than the original TF:Prime version.

Wonder who he butchered for the upgrades this time?

But Optimus got killed owned. It makes sense for him to upgrade.


If the Autobots are up against Cybertronian dinosaurs/Yautjas, they would upgrade, no? And if the Autobots upgrade, then the Decepticons have to beef up their defensive and offensive capabilities as well, amirite?


...

:???:


Right... so you just contradicted yourself. You told him to save his breath because everyone getting the "spike treatment" was most likely going to look like their package artwork. Well, this is their packaging artwork:

What I wanna know is why would Knock Out building Optimus into a mean, red-blue-and-green, Decepticon/Predacon-killing machine? Perhaps as an effort to make a zombie puppet of death to do his (or Megatron's) bidding? :-? Making death-machines for evil purposes (and to an extent, good purposes) almost never goes well... :-s

I still hate the green windows and have never been big on mouthy Primes, but this just went from 'sorta want' to 'totally badass'. Hasbro, I (mostly) approve. :APPLAUSE: I agree this is sort of a return to the simplicity of the Unicron Trilogy lines (Cybertron mostly), but to me that's not such a bad thing, as long as the figures look cool.

Paging Dr Wu...Dr Wu to the operating room please...

This thing looks way more badass than I initially thought (though I was already sold on him). I just wish Hasbro would start painting the damn feux parts already, that or just not bother including them. It's dumb as hell to put fake wheels/tires in the bot mode only to leave them unpainted. Either shell out for the paint or don't bother with the cheats because blue wheels on the inner legs aren't fooling anyone.

Weapon: Crossbow
I must be in the minority, but I DO NOT like this figure, The aesthetic looks completely different than the first few seasons of Prime, and frankly, looks a LOT like Animated, which I never cared for at all. It looks way too Playskool to me. The robot mode is okay, but that head! It doesn't look at all like Optimus to me. The only way I could tell it's him (aside from the packaging) is the fact that it's a red truck with blue bed/legs.

Speaking of packaging, what's up with the Prime bios? They're barely a sentence or two long on the Deluxes, and as far as I've seen, non-existent on the Voyagers. Is that a new trend? Bumblebee's was barely even a sentence, and one that said he was a scout, and found some weapons. It's like Hasbro fired the copywriters and used the savings to make the toy bigger.

In lieu of bios they're including chapters of an ongoing narrative on each figure's instructions. Each chapter is centric to the character it comes with.
