ok people, time to make a stand... its crap transformers like this that make the line bad, and on top of it on tfw2005, most people love it but mention they can accept the green eyes and windows... well stop... its lemmings like most people that allow hasbro quality to steadily slip down the drain.... and it is only going to continue!!!! so people, this line needs a better class of toy, and apparently hasbro is NOT going to because you all accept crap and call it greatness! G1 for all its lack of current technology put out better toys than this. most of the beast hunters line ive seen are parts and kibble formers, and some seem to transform by flipping out a head and making the beast arms and legs into the robots arms and legs... so both modes look almost identical... i for one am only collecting masterpiece figures, and even the hasbro versions of them are crap.

Chill out, bro.

I'm digging this. He looks cool in both modes. I don't like how they had to cheat on his torso but whatever, even the masterpieces do that. The green looks pretty damn cool, I love the snarl, I love the bulk, I love the truck with wings. Unlike some people I don't require my children's toys to be catered towards adults.

Love it, finally a simple beefy prime again with sword & jetpack is cool as well.

VioMeTriX, relaxxxu, Takara has enough stuff in store for you and your big fat wallet (you'll need it).

Also really happy for bigger voyagers and that they are taking new design directions to figure out what works best. Good stuff!

So now Optimus can tower over Megatron exactly how he doesn't in the show. Great.

I like it. I like it a lot.

I like the beefiness, I like the simplicity of the transformation, and I like the extra play factor you get from the wings and weapons.

Meeeeh. Classics line are still the best line so far.
Maybe I could use this to make Thunderclash. Just got to think of a way to give that face and those front teeth a little touch... >:oP

But so far if I wore to buy any of these toys it would be the beasts and only because I was a beast wars fan. Besides that for me this line is just pretty weak. Hasbro you have done so much better. Stop being such a lazy bunch and get back to the Classics/Universe era. Those molds and the engeniering behind eatch mold was just incredible. I miss that

Sure, but they can't ALL be Classics, and this is a cool toy.

well you are entitled to your own opinion, as i gave mine... but you totally putting words in my mouth is fucked up. this is why hasbro puts out junk, for people like you (and that is my opinion).

Ok, while I understand why you did what you did there could have been a better way of handling this... For not accurately quoting this is a verbal warning. Plz try to handle issues like this in the future differently.. If you feel the issue is potentially bad then contact me or one of the staff members as they will relay it to me if my attention is needed.

Not my cup of tea at all.

I like Alt modes to look like real vehicles and not like cartoon fantasy vehicles. Bot mode isn't too bad but the brighter colours put me off.

I'm not a fan of the Beast Hunters line as whole really. I think the Prime series has become a little silly compared to the more grown up look it started out with.

Kind of harsh don't you think?? This is the beginnings of overstepping the opinion rule..
Just because opinions vary does not mean for you to be harsh about it.

I propose that every and all future iterations and releases of Optimus Prime toys and incarnations should have green windows instead of blue! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
