It's the figures we've been waiting for.

That's certainly not the case as the toys were revealed earlier this week. Now we've got up close images of Arcee, Starscream, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Megatron and the kids! 31 images await you in the galleries!

Still not liking this toyline. Arcee's starting to grow on me but the rest are just bad for one reason or another. Bumblebee it looks like they took the worst aspects of movie BB and Hotshot and tossed them together, Primes coloring is horrible as is his chest, Starscream has a nice head sculpt and coloring but the overall body structure is crap & you know hes going to fall over easy, and Megatron looks like gigantor with a puny arm gun. The only other character that might actually be a good toy is the Decepticon drones.

Is Arcee miss transformed? She look way worse than the pictures we saw before.

I'm liking this toyline. Most likey, I'll get every one at some point.

Also, in vehicle mode, Megatron is the DEFINITION of Show-Accurate. Seriously.

Eh...I don't know...they aren't all that great to me.

Prime looks a lot better although I was fairly certain he would be boxed with Megatron like they did with Animated. I am definitely getting it. I really like Bumble Bee but his figure gives me a Gen. 1 Jazz vibe. I could see him being repainted as Jazz also.

Prime and Megatron lack their cmoplexity and awesomness you see on TV, but you don't really expect those designs to come out perfectly in real life. BB is decent, Arcee has too much kibble, and Starscream looks PERFECT. I don't even care for his design, but he's such a great character in this show I might get him

Please tell me Megatron and Arcee are mistransformed... That kibble is horrendous.

All of them look great except for Starscream. Don't get me wrong, the toy looms good but Starscream's character model in Prime is far from my favorite interpretation of the character. So far, Arcee is my favorite... And her blades 'o death on each arm :)

I like the figs from Transformers Prime. They all look good, but why are they all deluxe? Megs, Prime, Screamer and if they ever make him - Bulkhead should be voyager class. Then there's Prime......who the heck designed him, he looks nothing like he does in the cartoon, he reminds me of an activator in vehicle mode and a fast action battler in robot mode.

Not sure about Prime or Megatron. I don't need another version of either, let alone another deluxe mold of either. Starscream is also a likely pass. I love how accurate he looks, I just don't care for the look of him. Bumblebee is also a maybe. Arcee looks great though. Fingers crossed on Bulkhead. Although Hasbro may choose to keep costs down and make all Prime toys deluxe molds...

Starscream and BB look okay, Arcee is a definite buy, but Prime and Megatron just look horrendous.

They really couldn't find a different way to transform those arms?

Arcee, Starscream, and Megatron look good (Megatron especially). Prime and 'Bee, not so much. Waiting to see Bulkhead and Soundwave, but Starscream is a must for me and I might pick up Megatron if he gets a solo release.

Wonder if Skyquake is on the release list? I liked him and his giant gattling gun of doom in-show.

Arcee and Bumblebee still look awesome. Starscream still looks ok, a little better though. Optimus looks much better! Not as much as I'd like, but it is a big improvement. And Megatron still looks good. The kids are still annoying, and I'll just be acting out scenes where the kids get crushed and impaled by Megatron and Starscream. I'll even make a stopmotion!

Bumblebee on the show looks like he should transform into a banana. I am actually a little disappointed that the toy loses that aspect.

Megatron would be good if not for his whack-a-mole head in vehicle mode.

A Soundwave toy could be good if his breast animal is included. Skyquake might also be good.

BB's feet are lame but I could be willing to overlook that. I'll definitely be getting Starscream and Arcee, but I will likely pass on Prime & Megatron in hopes of better versions later on. Megatron is okay, but I don't like Prime much at all.

Including the yet to be revealed Ratchet toy and Arcee toys I will not be getting many of the prime toys




P.S. you disappoint me again Stickscream.
