Wow, these guys are looking great. The TF:Prime line is looking beautiful. Cliff doesn't look all that great though, I was hoping he would be better. Though his non-zombie form hopefully looks good. The 2 Voyagers look great. Hopefully we see even more soon.

Anyway, these look amazing. Prime is especially great compared to his deluxe version. Bulkhead looks good but for some reason I feel like his chest doesn't match the show very well. Still looks cool and I'll definitely get it. Cliffjumper looks great but I do hope for a non-zombie version. The Decepticon drone is cool too. Lockdown repaint perhaps? That would be pretty cool. I might just buy it anyway.

bulkhead is pretty cool.

the vehicon and cliffjumper are alright.

but prime... WOW, that looks incredible. leaps and bounds better than the deluxe.

i can't wait to see a voyager starscream, and hopefully a voyager megatron.

Hell yeah, bro!


All of these look cool - even that Optimus! (I'm not a big Optimus figure guy).


I'm gonna buy a BUNCH of those drones!

EDIT: Man, that Bulkhead looks REALLY good. Giant codpiece, FTW! Let's hope future images look as good.

More about Prime: I love that he has a sword AND his gun, and the gun looks like a perfect interpretation of his classic weapon.

WANT!

Though, now I have a question. Should I stop collecting DOTM toys so I can have more money to spend on these toys? Thus far, I've only picked up a few DOTM toys, and most of them have yet to impress me. The DOTM toys that have yet to come also don't sound that very appealing to me.

These Prime toys, however, have me fangasming to no end! They look fantastically magnificent... unlike the DOTM toys. So, should I drop the DOTM toyline in order to save up for the Prime toyline?

so you're going to tell him to save his money for a couple figures that aren't coming out for a few months? doesn't make much sense.

although.. the dotm line has become the definitive repaint line. so i don't blame you.

hasbro is really blowing this dotm line. we're going to have to wait SOO long for a new deluxe/voyager/leader mold from this line that it's absolutely ridiculous. the handling of this line has been atrocious... i was at target yesterday and a kid picked up the exclusive deluxe bumblebee and said to his mom "look mom, it's a new bumblebee, wait it just has a different design, that's stupid" then he dropped it on the shelf and left.

Admittedly there's not that much here for TF fans, but did you see Darksteel (cool repaint of Sideswipe with repainted versions of Starscream's MechTech weapons)? That guy looks ridiculously awesome from the (pretty blurry) pics I saw of him. I can't wait to see better pics because he definitely looks like a winner with cool colours and cool weapons. Air Raid on the other hand looks a little funky, but interesting.

O_O FANTASTIC.

Animated? You've just been replaced.

My only problem is Bulkhead's left arm. I'd really like a second hand for him, but I'll survive because this is just friggin' awesome.

Take a closer look, his hand is the a slot in his arm right under his mace.

Edit: Oops, said his arm is in the slot in his arm...

I'm liking some of the Prime designs and these figures look very promising! The ones i'm looking forward to seeing most are:

Arcee- She is the best of the bunch so far in my opinion. I'll buy her in an instant.

Bulkhead- Low and behold here he is! was never much of a fan of him before but Prime seems to have done him some justice for sure. I'll pick him up too. Plus he seems to not be going away anytime soon anyways. Great alt mode too.

Archnid- Could we get a triple changer out of her??

BREAKDOWN- i want him to be massive and brutal looking when they release him.I love his alt mode too. I hope he becomes a big player as the show progresses. He's been indicated as such by Starscream anyways.

I hate to say it but BB gets some honourable mention from me as well. He's no longer an annoying little child dork-bot but an actual scout with skills that gets shit done (somewhat). and the Prime design of him looks great. IMO

the drone is cool but theres way to much back kibble primes ok but the arms look a little to big for the figure the rest are a pass. I do like Cliffjumpers alt mode but the robot mode is crap. So far there isnt one TFP figure thats a must have for me.

Based on the show designs, Cliffjumper's chest should split apart and it seems like the toy can do the same, it just wasn't done during the photo session.

The Voyagers are looking pretty good, can't wait to see more.

I have to say this changes things for me.

I was planning to skip out on most of this line, but with Prime, Bulkhead, and the Vehicon all looking awesome, I may be picking this up.

I'll get most of them. Except Zombie Cliffjumper, I'll take the regular one instead.

I'll be getting three of the Vehicons

Afraid you must have. In the debut mini-series Cliffjumper dies and Megatron uses Dark Energon to bring him back as a zombie.

Very cool! Been waiting to see Bulkhead for a while now, and i'm pleasently surprised by his overall design. Seems to be fairly accurate to the show.
Optimus, Cliff, and the vehicon are all great as well. Hopfully they will all be as easy to transform as the animated figures were.
NOw lets see some Leader class figures!

Still not a fan of the animated aesthetic. It's fine when you're watching a cartoon and can forget about it due to the voice acting and action (though still way more stylized than I'd like), but when you turn it into a physical object it just looks silly. I get that they're trying to combine the movie look with the Transformers Animated look, but Animated is my least favorite of all the Transformers looks to date. And movie is not much better due to all the crappy faces and monstrosities that were supposed to be Decepticons.

So, of these, the only one I am thinking about picking up right now is Bulkhead, and that's because he looks slightly less silly than his Animated version, which granted was a good toy, but still too goofy looking for me.

A shard of the allspark was used to reignite Megatron's Spark (at least I think that's what happened, it's pretty unclear to be fair), so he was never revived like Cliffjumper was. Cliffjumper's Spark was also extinguished, like movie Megatron's, but from what I understand when he was revived his Spark never came back, or at least not like it should have if he was simply brought back to life. He was basically a mindless shell that was moving because of a power source and killing because of the negative influence of the dark energon.

How was it unclear? The whole first part of the movie (The Decepticon story anyway.) where the Decepticons looking for the shard of the Allspark to revive Megatron!
