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.

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.

If it is a new figure, I'm all for it, be it Deluxe or Voyager. Which begs the question: what should I put him under? I already have Henkei Prime for the Leader spot in Classics... Ginrai-san, doko desu ka?

Where are people seeing two pack prime from that picture? It's completely different. The gun, for example has blue piece on the back with what looks to be windows or more likely, it's part of the trailer attachment in vehicle mode. It does look a lot like IDW ongoing Prime, which I'm fine with. Well drawn and defined character.

Just stay away from the stupid new Megatron design and it's all gravy.

Wanna hear something inflamatory? Perhaps not popular opinion? IDW designed Transformers are artistic abortions.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Love MTMTE and RID, but the character designs are a travesty.

With fully articulated fingers like that, how could I resist. Trollish? You should see some of the photos I havent published. XD

As for IDW designed figs, cool. Can we pic designs that suck less tho? Like Don's Prime and Megs...

3 things that we will have to know.

1, is it real?
2, will it be a deluxe or a voyager?
And 3, will it be some exclusive bullshit that only a few select customers will be able to get, or will it have a regular release and be available everyhere?

Let's play the wait-n-see game.

The TF Prime design is the magnificent love child of momma Animated and Poppa Bayverse!

And I'm perfectly okay with that.

And make it Voyager-scaled while you're at it. My Classics Megatron is feeling quite lonely. Or, if Hasbro really loves us, make it a Leader class and have an equally-scaled Megatron to accompany him.

The worst part is that Hasbro most likely has released more Bumblebees in the past five years, while this sucker took the entirety of the Transformers franchise.
