Wow, Evasion Mode Prime really looks bare. And Voyager Grimlock sucks

One figure... I had enthusiasm and hope for ONE FIGURE out of the entire AoE line and 98% of that just went right down the toilet after seeing the pics of Prime. I can forgive or at least turn a blind eye to a great many of Hasbro's failings over the years but not this. This is the toy tribute equivalent of pissing on someones grave. The ONE THING that Bay did absolutely right out of the entire franchise, the one ounce of respect he showed to the first generation of Transformer fans and Hasbro goes and f***s it up!

Thank goodness the only other figure I have any interest in isn't going to see the light of day in robot mode if I pick it up. Sadly though, I'll probably have to pass on that too. If Hasbro can find a way to screw up a voyager class Prime in BOTH modes then the Deluxe Class '67 Camaro Bumblebee has about a snowballs chance in hell of coming out decent looking in vehicle mode.

Two observations:

(1) AOE Grimlock's head sculpt is *this close* to being TMNT Shredder.

(2) Evasion Optimus looks a lot like Kre-O Optimus.

That Prime. That Prime, though. That will be mine, if not so I can at the very least have a flat-nosed Optimus aside from the Classics mold. Aside from the "colored plastic > paint" rut that Hasbro seems to be falling into, I think I can do something to make him look a bit cooler with some extra paint.

But that Grimlock should have stayed extinct, in my opinion. "Voyager" seems a lot like "Deluxe" right now, though that is probably to keep in in scale with this Optimus for unknown reasons. Being around the same size as G1 Grim is rather unacceptable from a Voyager, in my opinion.

:lol:

AOE Voyager Grimlock's alt-mode makes FOC Grimlock's alt-mode look like a marvel of modern engineering.

I think Prime is looking really nice, although he'll be much improved with the addition of a little more grey/gunmetal paid. I'm really keen to see exactly how that transformation works - the windowtits are obviously "fake" so I'm intrigued to see where the "fake" bits appear from and where the "real" bits are hidden.

Glad he's deluxe and not voyager sized, I think he'll look great next to Movie Trilogy deluxe Prime.

Evasion Mode Prime is a Voyager Class figure, not Deluxe. >:oP And I can't say I don't dig him. Grimlock on the other claw, I'll wait for comparisons between Voyager and Leader.

D'oh! So he is. Looks small for a Voyager, compared to G1 Prime. Maybe he'll feel bulkier in hand.

I just noticed that that gun Optimus comes with is Megatron's shotgun from DOTM. When i get that Prime, that gun is going to my DOTM Megatron.

:BOOM: Grimlock's head looks like a lot like Samurai Spawn. Poor Optimus can't catch a break in the movie toys. It's as though someone decided to kit bash together a sudo-MP cab with the horrible leg/truck deck area from every Prime since MP and Classics Prime, and then slapped together a robot mode that seems to combine all of the worst elements we have all had to get used to from every movie verse Prime ever made. Fine examples of why I own very, very few of the movieverse "figures". At least we have Whirl, Swerve and company, as well as MP Wheeljack on the horizon..... >:oP

So, amI the only one who saw tht picture of Grimmy's mace and said "Cool! He ripped a traffic light out of the ground and is gonna club people with it!"

He's a pass, but the otherfigures on the shelf look good. I don't need a green corvette, but hopefully a repaint comes along.

How is Evason Prime a whizzing on a grave qality bad? Sure, some shoulderpads would be nice, some grey to break up the colors, but its a solid figure. Only because I have enough Primes already I was gonna skip him, but that is looking like its going to change. He reminds me a lot of the 2007 Voyager without the backpack in proportions. Curious to see the scale of his alt mode.

(I still really like my BH Voyager Prime though, with wings, his Armade cannon on the vehicle roof, a pair of theBattle VS turret ommy guns at the back of the truck mode in his fistholes, Mmm!)

Eh, not feeling the AoE line all that much. They don't look as good as they could be, and in a way it just feels like more of the lackluster Beast Hunters stuff (robot reptiles, knights, automobiles, and little else). Not to mention most of it doesn't fit anywhere in MY shelves.

Maybe it might fit into his hand better.

It looks like a really bad homage to how the G1 toy held his good, but that was 1970/80's engineering they should have no excuse for this. So far none of these toys are interesting me...

That's exactly what I think every time I look at him.

Hrm. I was initially excited about Evasion Prime, but he's looking pretty bland... maybe I'll wait and see what the inevitably-overpriced Takara version looks like.

I'm still wondering why the Grimlock figures we've seen look nothing like the Grimlock we saw in the trailer.

Those Optimus and Grimlock pics were taken from pictorial reviews of the two. Without the review text, there is no context to them.

Is Grimlocks alt mode transformed correctly i wonder? Cause if it is..........it's HORRIBLE!!
So much bot bits and massive gaps and panels just floating in the middle of nowhere revealing all the robot bits underneath.

Honestly...it's laughable and a little embarrassing for such an iconic figure to be handled so poorly over the past couple years. At least the MP did it right. Even Animated is better.

Brings a wee tear to my eye it does.

OP looks alright in alt mode. I can dig it.
