Actually guys, upon closer inspection, Powerizer Optimus Prime is a whole new mold. I can't see the red heel pieces formed from the top of the cab, and the lower arms look like different molding as well.

And another Entertainment Pack, with Starscream and Bumblebee? YES, I'll have my Deluxe Starscream yet!

No, it's just that Europe will be skipping First Editions entirely.

So, Powerizer OP... is it Deluxe or Voyager scale? Is it a modified version of the existing Voyager version, or a completely new mold?

This bodes well for picking up the FE molds yet...

If those First Edition molds don't get released here then I'm skipping Prime entirely. It's a crying shame.

Um, I'm not liking the way this looks.

I dislike translucent body parts on my Transformers, I hope not every toy in this line will be like this.

I'm confused with these.

Are they 100% new molds?

Are they the first release molds with minor retooled parts?

Honestly,I don't like that much clear translucent parts on my TF toy in the over excess. this is why beastmachines is my most loathed TF toy line thus far. I don't mind clear translucent parts being used for vechicle parts like windshields,light. I also don't mind clear translucent missles & eyes. I DON'T LIKE CLEAR TRANSLUCENT BODY PARTS/LIMBS ON A ROBOT MODE.

I don't like annoying kiddie lights & sounds included in my smaller voyager sized TF toys. because These toys are hard to clean after they've been on display shelves for a while. I like to wash off my TF toys under a sink/bath tub to get rid of excess dust every now & then.

If these are 100% new molds,I don't like it. I would have rather the toy budget money,resources,etc.. be spent on creating other TF Prime character molds. I would have even preferred non-cartoon TF Prime characters get TF Prime toys.

SO ARE WE GONNA SEE TF PRIME BUMBLEBEE AS A LEADER SIZED OR SUPREME TOY STEALING THE OBVIOUS MORE DESIRED TOY SLOTS AWAY FROM TF PRIME ROCK LORD PLANET/BOT UNICRON. Because i'd rather see a supreme sized OR LEADER SIZED TF prime unicron toy. then a over sized TF Prime bumblebee toy.

SORRY,I don't like nor enjoy. When hasbro takes optimus,bumblebee,starscream & realeases them in 10 different size levels,keeps creating newer mold designs based off their cartoon/movie animated designs.

I can only imagine that were gonna see the following happen in the TF Prime toy line. Optimus prime,bumblebee & starscream get legends sized toys,basic activators,deluxes,voyagers,optimus might get a leader sized toy. bumblebee might get a leader size & supreme sized toy. LIKE THIS THREAD SEEMS TO INDICATE,we'll be getting the same designs in constant re-imagined toy form based off the cartoon designs.

I miss the beastwars,beastmachines,rid & AEC TF toy lines. because they focused on doing about 25+ characters & giving them toys. ever since the movie verse & animated happened it seems to be only 10 characters per toy line getting about 5 different sized toys each per toy line. SORRY,I don't need every TF cartoon character in every size scale because this clearly wastes toy slots & prevents newer characters/designs from getting created.

Personally,If hasbro wants to give us 5 different molds for optimus,5 differenrt toy mold for bumblebee,4 different new mold for starscream per TF toy line. Then I'd prefer the BW/BM AEC route where we get UPGRADED new molds. that have a entirely radically different design not re-imagined toy designs based off the SAME OLD BORING cartoon/movie media design.

Examples of upgraded TF toys: (1) BW 1996 cheetor,got his upgraded TM1 toy,then his upgraded TM2 toy. (2)Cybertron Hotshot,red alert & scattershot having their first regular forms,then getting upgraded DEFENSE forms. that looked radically different in designs both the media & toy form. (3)Cybertron toy line overhaul having his first toy/media form. then getting upgraded into a beast planet leobreaker toy/media form.

I would prefer TF Prime's optimus prime & megatron. keep getting newer upgraded animated cartoon designs that translate into upgraded newer designed toys. examples: TF Prime Megatron getting rebuilt into a form that looks like 1986 galvatron. TF Prime megatron getting upgraded into that season 4 animated leader sized maruader megatron toy. Optimus prime getting rebuilt into a tripple changer leader sized toy that is a tank,truck cab & robot mode. TF prime starscream being upgraded into a stealth bomber long jet mode with tons of big weapons/guns.

All these reimagined toys based off the same old boring cartoon/movie media designs do nothing for me. examples: all those deluxe movie verse bumblebee toys. movie verse barricade getting all those toys based off the same exact movie media CGI design.

TF Prime Hot Shot wonder if he was A Wrecker like Bulkhaed and Wheeljack.
The new Prime looks cool with the sword please don't be soft rubber
The BB and Scream 2 pack no thanks I already have them and I'm not interested in the Mech figures

Cyberverse Breakdown I hope we get a voyager

I wonder if these Evac and Mirage Are Prime.

I want the Knockout and Drill Playset

All the Prime stuff looks epic my Poor Wallet

Dinogeist, please switch to decaf, I fear for your blood pressure. ;)

But this is still not helping me decide on a Bumblebee from this line.

It appears that this will be closer in color to the Takara release of FE Bumblebee.
I'm trying to avoid have fifty thousand versions of BB, like I was suckered into with the movie line, but at least all of those are different molds or completely different decos.

These are all supposed to be the same character in the same deco.
I just want to find the best version without having to buy a dozen of him.
So far, I like the Takara release the best, but the rest have only been seen in grainy press release photos, without in-hand images or comparisons.

So I'm holding my money fro now.

I'm glad the Prime has translucent parts, because I don't like it and I'm annoyed by multiple versions of what is essentially the same figure. However I notice that it is a different, simpler mold, almost as if they're simplifying it to allow for gimmicks. Makes me glad I was able to pick up most of the First Edition figures while they lasted.

Looks like the "human partners" are Silas and a MECH trooper.

I already got that Starscream and Bumblebee, an that Prime graphic novel, but... arrgh, those MECH figures are so tempting!

RID Powerizer Prime looks beast, but less show-accurate than the FE Voyager figure. I mean, he's needs more red on his torso.

1- The FE TF Prime voyagers have yet to hit saturation in American TRU stores. So,their not done being released,their on their way & will be released soon.

2- I also prefer the FE TF Prime voyager sized optimus & bulkhead toys.

3- IMO,Most of the TF Prime toys appear to be simplified designs based off some movie-verse characters. I ain't getting TF Prime bumblebee because i'm happy with my ROTF HA $29.99 Bumblebee toy.

4- Personally I think the better TF Prime toy to buy is either the HFTD Voyager optimus prime or the Ultra sized optimus that comes with the DOTM Ultimate optimus prime toy.

It's looking more and more like all the voyagers (can't bring myself to start using powerisers) after the FEs will have clear parts to accomodate light up features. Just looks to be the way this line's going I guess.

That's what the First Edition figure is for.

They're already in Canada (and places like eBay). So, some people in North America already own them.

Even though those Movie toys aren't the same guys as these Prime toys represent. ;)

Send it my way and I'll bling them up for you. Or maybe I'll keep your figure and never send it back. 'Cause I'd do that for you =3.
