Looks like those Semi Knock-Off transformers that came out a few years ago, which also Part-Transformed. But those came with a small price tag and better licensed vehicles, cough* Land Rover Defender :D

I'd pick one up for the right price, I like my 4x4 Transformers :)

Not bad, not bad at all. I just might get this one. That alt mode looks good. I got to see how this figure turns out after a couple of months.

The Alternity/Alternators lines might actually be cool if they expanded it beyond ugly Japanese vehicles. Why not a Hummer ? An Avalanche or an Escalade ? Just saying...

An Escalade huh?

Imagine if the Escalade turned into Optimus.

Anyway, gotta admit, the head looks better than I initially thought.

The Alternators line is American & Japanese vehicles. Corvette, Mustang etc. But I know you know that, I get what you are trying to say, but the world os bigger that Japan and America. There is an episode of American Chopper, the Tuttle family visits England, and one of them remarks, that he had no idea that Range Rover and Land Rover were Britich companoies. In fact Astin Martin, TVR and many more are all British and are way more deserving to be in the Alternity & Alternators line than any vehicle they have at the moment.
Anyway back to your comment, you said that the 4x4 that they have made prime is ugly, the fact that it is Japanese is neirther here nor there, as Japanese cars are proper nice, nissan gtr, mitsubishi evo, shall I go on?
Anyway, google Range Rover Evoque and I'm sure you will find that prime would look much better as an Evoque than any of the cars you have mentioned, not only is the design futuristic, but it's way above the ones you have mentioned, in fact the ones you have mentioned are poor imitations of Land Rovers and Range Rovers. G1 was mainly all european cars, and European cars are still where it's at today, it's a shame that there are only a few which get made into transformers now.

Alternators? Half of that line was American cars. Jeep Wrangler, Corvette, Ford GT, Mustang, Dodge Ram, Viper... That's not too bad especially when you consider how hard it was for them to negotiate with the car companies in the pre-movie era.

As for Alternity, it's a Japanese exclusive line, so it makes sense that most of the vehicles are Japanese cars.

Agreed, although that's mainly the fault of the European car companies. Most of them still don't want their cars being made into Transformers.

As for this figure, it looks pretty cool, but I wish it weren't OP. Pretty easy pass for me unless I catch it on sale.

Yeah I read that too, it was VW who strictly prohibited any ascociation with war violence et. Which makes me wonder how the Masterpiece Bumblbee is coming out. I was shockd to see Lambor etc. I would of thought the licenses were finished, or strictly for the original molds ie the g1 figures. Maybe there is a loop hole, or as the MP figures are based on the G1 figures the license still holds. I know licenses were not the complex barriers they are today. But it has caused some stupid compramises such as the reoval of windchargers exgaust pipe making the gun in the ALternator line.

No. A redeco of RID Prime back around the Unicron Trilogy era came out. It was an exclusive if I remember correctly. Garish looking, too.

Not a big fan of this figure, the vehicle mode looks fine and the best part in robot mode is the head sculpt,, why they can not choose a finer car,,, idk like a bugatti....

parts former? where do you get that from?

to me.. it looks like vehicle panels that you put on the figure.. which stay on when you transform it.

i could be wrong. but i don't see any parts-forming.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think it almost looks better without the car-shell bits? All black and trans-clear bits everywhere. And shoulder wheels!

Gotta love Lemon Flavored Burning Justice. They did a yellow version of the spy changer mold too, for the Universe 1.0 line.

It looks cool, but unless they either redeco it into Nemesis Prime or they make a Megatron to compliment him, it's a no-go from me.

Still want a Nemesis version.

Courtesy of the Jungle we have quick in-package look at the grey version of Takara Tomy's newly released TF Cruiser Optimus Prime. All color variant outside of yellow and white are Toyota Japan Dealership exclusives. Customers who purchase an FJ Cruiser apparently receive an FJ Cruiser Optimus Prime in the same color of their actual vehicle. Due to stock levels and customer requests, it is highly likely that this won't always be the case.

I always thought the FJ cruiser would have made an awesome movie-verse Gears or Beachcomber...either way these look like cool figs.

BUYER BEWARE! Just have to say that I am extremely frustrated with FJ Cruiser Optimus Prime. One of mine is broken in two different spots now. Extremely frustrating! The right arm broke at the elbow joint and now one of the feet broke off while I was transforming it. I was going to give the figure the benefit of the doubt after the elbow joint broke yesterday, but now that the foot broke just now while I was transforming it, I'd say this thing is a POS. It's too small of a figure to have this intricate of a transformation. The plastic they used is not forgiving at all and just breaks when too much pressure is applied. Couple that with a unique transformation and you are bound to end up with a pile of parts. Urgh!









FYI ... after the elbow joint broke, I tried drilling a couple of holes in the arm to stick a pin through it but was unsuccessful in attempting to piecemeal it back together.
