It looks like the prime from classics line that came in a two box with the megaton tank. That tiny prime that has a knob on the back for his spinning action.

Yeah. It's got those distinctive tapered arms and the split windshield of Prime prime. Does it mean a new mold is planned though? Or could it be a GDO style new-head/repaint job?

....

Actually, now that you mention it.... it's just the IDW one. :-(

Look at the gun. The back part looks like the gun from that line, just a little more exaggerated

If this is Voyager sized, count me in. But if it's deluxe or(God forbid) that one from the two pack with Megs, I'll pass.

Something tells me that this guy won't have a trailer, and roller is included as a substitute, a little like Hasbros MP Rodimus, giving us OffShoot instead of the trailer. Better be a figure though...

I'm sure it'll be a deluxe or voyager, so there's no "instead of a trailer," since there wouldn't have been a trailer with it to begin with. If you had said "Targetmaster Minicon Roller instead of a regular gun or kibble-gun," you'd have been totally right though! :grin:

I'm gonna stick to my original assumption that its that tiny classic prime with the megaton. I think I have it laying somewhere on the floor, next to to junk transformers pile. That's how poor that mode is. Too small to display it anywhere

The robot mode is really nice, even if it's a bit derpy in altmode. :lol: I wouldn't mind having it myself, he's the perfect size for a computer desk! I could easily live with a remold of that.

I don't mind the mode, but the swivel action on the waist makes it extremely difficult to display in any pose. Sorry, I'm kind of biased regarding size. Like leader and supreme class transformer. :)

I thought exactly the same thing, but that's cool finally we got more IDW Comic Toys, maybe. I wouldn't mind also for the IDW G1 based Megatron or Megatron from Tarn and all the other great IDW Transformers characters.

Yeah, that's my issue too with IDW Prime. I don't mind the change in design, but the smokestack is his signature character identification. Just like UM with his long shoulder post and missile at the side, or Red Alert/Sideswipe with shoulder rocket missile, etc. Despite this, I thought it's a good approach by Hasbro. If I have the space, I would certainly support the line.

Whats that? The head? Nah, I don't count 5% of its anatomy as making it G1. Not trying to be trollish with my observation, just hugely disappointed.


I call trollish, seeing ur sig ;)

I really hope he's not so Gundam like the first Classics Prime. Chest looks pretty flat which is good. This is the first new Generations figure I see and I already really like it.

Hopefully they'll make a good megz as well. Glad that I didn't sell my whole Generations/Classics line.

it would make a good figure but im sick and tired of optimus, seriously do we really need another one? I know hes the most iconic character in the franchise but still give us a break, but its still better than another bumblebee.

Yeah as a Voyager toy it would be even better, but let's see what Hasbro will show us in the next month or weeks.

I agree with Mr. President - Prime. The mold look cool, but in practice, he's even more loose jointed than Titanium War Within O.P. and his double - punch gimmick was...really bad. His had my favorite gun, though!

I say bring it on Hasbro, this has got me excited for the return of more G1 classics. As to an earlier post about too many Optimus Primes? Naw, you can't have too many.
