Front paged and credited!

Love the truck mode. See how easy it is to make Prime look good without having to resort to tacky rice-boy flames?

Too much red, but way better than flames.

Jazz was Always Gangsta ;p

Ironhide was the redneck.

What Bay actualy said, was that they could not properly film a red truck, because the colors come out shit on film. Additionally the complexity of his design makes it so that the flame pattern was nessecery to allow for a G1 color scheme with the design they used for his transformation. Hasbro and he both worked Extensively to provide the best representation of Prime that they could. Bay's design team even went so far as to tone down Prime's transformation, so that it could actualy be produced in a real life action feature.

As far as this paint job....I really would have prefered some more original thought. Rodimus would seem almost a natural remold from this figure.

I think he looks pretty lame .. I hate him without the flames.. Sure he is prime but its time to retire the lame 80's paint job. Im a fan from the beginning and its so boring to see them milk the hell out of the G1 paint themes lol, let them rust in peace and bring on the new age !!

big improvement with the truck mode colors. I am glad that Hasbro is starting to see the light.

actually, I only really like one G1 repaint.
Jazz. cause the grey sucks and white rules.
Ratchet was too nursey
Optimus is too red and simple
Starscream I bought but it doesnt fit his body
Only one I can think of as somewhat good looking would be red ironhide

i love the truck but the robot mode looks a bit lacking.
i like both the flames and g1 designs but they seem to work better in their own mediums. to me the flames seemed symbolic of his opposition to the 'iceman' megatron.

Urgh, too plain.

The Robot Mode reminds me A LOT of RID Prime/Fire Convoy's regular robot mode.

That looks less "G1" than the movie version itself.
He looks more like Fire Convoy than anything.
