With a nice coat of paint, those would actually make some pretty cool desktop deco.

Except for the eyes, it really has a good mold, including the back

Good looking box, too!

Hopefully they won't run out of the Optimus and Bumblebee ones the next time I buy a dozen donuts. :D

why couldn't the deluxe version be those colors?

i understand that the bugatti is blue when bright sunshine is shining on it.. otherwise, it looks black most of the time.. plus, black plastic would look SOOO much better with those nice light blue highlights.

Brightly coloured toys stand out more on shelves, attracting kid's attention better
I am hoping though for a repaint of drift-I'm sure they could do it as an "obligatory night shadow stealth version" or whatever :lol:

Kids don't go for inaccurate figures, they have deeper perception for toys than adults by this days. I am a father talking.

Yes a bright color will call their attention at first sight, but the following reaction will be negative.

Kindly tell that to Hasbro, PLEASE! They're under the belief that "bright colors = more $$$ than dull colors".

Agreed in all honesty-but that was the designer's word as to why, at least, the dinobots are brightly coloured rather than just 'another black/grey figure'. (Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe it was in the designer's video a bit back?

I don't care about any of the other stuff, I just want one of those coolers. I'd be happy with one of those.

And just curious... has there been any mention of a motorcycle character in this new film? I don't recall having heard of one so I fail to see the importance of them giving away a Kawasaki Ninja if it doesn't directly coincide with the film.
Like I said previously, I don't care about any of the other prizes, the bike included, I was just wondering about the connection and whether we could look forward to some silly bastardization of an otherwise nice looking motorcycle making its way into the toy line. I'm running out of stuff to scoff at and have a whole new batch of derisive comments ready to sling Hasbro's direction. ;)

The optimus prime image in the bottom corner is much different than the one we've seen before on the poster. The arms are different and he has his mouth plate on. :-?

Transformers: Age of Extinction Promotional 12 Foot Optimus Prime in India

Postby Va'al » Fri Jun 13, 2014 5:45 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The Transformers: Age of Extinction marketing campaigns are really amping up around the globe! From Mumbai, via IndianTelevision.com, we have news of a Hasbro-licensed 12-foot tall, 300kg heavy Optimus Prime statue touring six Indian cities to promote the film release - and give fans a chance to win premiere screening tickets! Check out more info here, and images below.

Aiming to bring viewers a step closer to their favourite hero – Optimus Prime, the makers have made a whopping 12-foot high statue that weighs about 300kg. Warrior, fearless and righteous – Optimus Prime is the ultimate leader of the Autobots who are constantly raging wars against a rival faction of robots called the Decepticons.

Under a special license from Hasbro (American multinational that is one of the largest toy makers in the world), this figurine is made to exact design specifications. The viewing experience of this complex figurine has been enhanced by intricate lighting. Encased in a special package, a dedicated container has been hired to transport the robot locally around India. Optimus Prime will tour six cities, starting with Pune and eventually making his way to Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad.

why does it seem like some of the people who make these don't really pay attention to the actual render of the character..

it's nice an all, and i'm sure a lot of effort was put into making it.. it just doesn't look like there was a lot of effort put into getting it right.
