hilarious? i don't see how an animation color accurate prime is hilarious.. but okay. i'd personally prefer this version over the henkei version.

Although it's pretty odd to have show accurate colours on a mold that's vastly different from the actual cartoon model. If it'S not too expensive to get I might get it for my Classics Prime collection.


you are absolutely right. i've said this quite a few times.. they never give prime his proper white waist/thighs.

i'd kill for an MP prime with this scheme.. this scheme would make that mold completely perfect.. maybe one day they'll do it.. make his waist and thighs white, get rid of the silver stripes in truck mode.. i'd be all over it.

It's not all that horrible in a vacuum. Not awesome, and a bit cartoon-y, but not at all horrible.

But taken in juxtaposition with the promo art, and, well... I can see where there's much to be desired.

Me too, It would rock to have MP 10 in cartoon colours!


Man I just realized, the Bludgeon mold has never had a decent head (not counting the HEadrobots one), they all look crap and bloated.
The original Bludgeon head is bloated and horribe, the Overlord head is crap and this one here too.

New pakaging, same, old product.

While that Optimus looks nice, I just think it has been redecoed too often. I think we should just get a new Prime (by new, I mean DESIGN new, not REDECO new), like a Voyager based on his appearance in Ongoing (from IDW), even if it it may not be as popular as Toyworld's Orion. Anyone with me (though I will admit, this is a cool repaint that looks more cartoon accurate)?

Megatron does look AWESOME with that paintjob, it's just the clown face that is the weakest point. Maybe it is just the toy fitting Bludgeon more than Megatron that makes me not like the bot mode, because why would Megatron be a samurai??? Like Prime, I think Megs should get a Voyager based figure, based on his design in "Chaos Theory, Part 1".

They never got G2 either. I stand by my previous question. Unless they are wanting it for the BWII Megastorm nod. However, I should have been more clear. Why should any of us care?

They did get the mold as Megastorm (which you point out later, defeating your argument).

Why would they want a silver G1-decoed tank Megatron to use as the mostly green Megastorm?

Shoud we? Are we the intended audience for this, or is it the Japanese fandom?

As for why we're being told about this at all if we're not the intended audience, it's because this is a Transformers news site and any TF news is fair game to be posted. Same reason we get news stories about a MLP comic featuring Optimus Prime on the cover.

Sabre, flux is right. Nobody should care about this. It's cool in theory, but the head-mold is so bad it looks like it's been designed by whoever does FunnPub's exclusive toy heads (not the awesome ones from 2 years ago since the majority of those where the secondary heads to the Generations molds).
Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually done by the same guy.

That's why I asked him if why we should care if we're not the intended audience but no answer was given to me from him. I mean, who here has said that we are supposed to care about these?

But, at the same time, things we don't care about get posted here all the time, and likely will continue to be so simply because it's TF news and everything is fair game here. ;)

Not everything needs to be argued into dust. Rhetorical questions don't need answers. Who should care about these? No one should, regardless of the audience or market. Tired of the know it all bs from some. Totally kills any enjoyment I derive from this, my favorite, Transformers site. Having said that, the ignore list grows by one. Over it.

That Megatron doesn't look that bad though his legs are a bit wonky. But at least in those promo pics he doesn't look bad. Nice colors and headsculpt

Optimus is optimus. Not bad mold and I actually don't even have that Classics version. I have ultra magnus and nemesis (legit one).

i have bludgeon and it's a fave mould of mine but i'm not feeling it for this megs. Guess of all the recent decepticon leaders my fave was the war for cybertron one.

i'm ashamed to admit i don't have that OP mould : ( was late to the game and he became expensive, hopefully this might come in at a decent price.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid
