That car thing looks pretty fun. Not for me, but if I were 25 years younger I'd be all over it.

I am really intrigued by that last bit. What do you mean by avoiding the rubber pieces? Are you referring to the transformation?


Sorry, I should've clarified. The final piece of the transformation says to swing those rubber flaps outward and then hook them into his chest. Skip it. Leave them folded in. They only frustrate and make the cape all off kilter. The only downside is that his two smaller pistols are hidden behind them and access is a pain, but he'll look so much better without them.

That grimlock has the right colors, unlike the main toy line (brown). I might get it only for dispay as movie color accurate toy. >:oP

Same here. I was really into those kinds of car race tracks as a kid. The ones I had were from lines/brands called Darta and Top Speed. I doubt they're still around anymore, but these would have been right up my alley back in the day. :D

Thirded. Hot Wheels tracks AND transformers AND a t-rex? My 7 year-old self would snap that up in a heartbeat.

(as a kid, all Matchbox-style cars were just Hot Wheels to me)

Courtesy of RobotKingdom's Facebook page, they have added new images of the upcoming Platinum Edition Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Evasion Mode Optimus Prime with Voyager Class Grimlock. This set is a Toys R Us exclusive and will also be released in Asia. Both figures feature several differences from the regular retail versions of Grimlock and Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. Most notably, this version of Evasion Mode Optimus Prime has chrome and the face shield and Grimlock also has chrome, much like his Leader Class counterpart.

That was Megatron's shotgun in the DotM Movie, remember? Optimus used it against Sentinel Prime. And yes, the DotM Megatron can wield it with the tabs.

Chrome is great and all but why on Optimus' knee things? They have always looked awesome to me on his, now, old design but being this bright silver just looks awkward. They shoulda taken that chrome and put it on his thighs, to complete the look with his already-chromed crotch!

What moron though chrome in those areas was a good idea?

Ugh...

Was hoping for Platinum Edition but then we yet again get the chrome in all the wrong places. :BANG_HEAD: The tolerances on Optimus are so tight with the arm transformation that you could never transform him if you wanted to keep the chrome looking good. I was just hoping for an even more accurate G1 deco with a face shield and the arms/feet a different color. This is ridiculous!! :shock:

~reluctantyouth~ :BOT:

I may look for an Optimus faceplate head to substitute on my regular Evasion Mode Prime. I'm wondering if my Transformers Prime FE Optimus Prime head will fit on Evasion Prime body? :-? Anybody else contemplating a head change?

It would appear that the new design team seems to a real boner fascination for chrome.

Baltmatrix takes a look at Galvatron! I kinda like it, even though it's a shell former with weird articulation.

I read an interview with the Hasbro design team where they claimed that they had come up with chrome that no longer flaked. From what I've heard though, swing and a miss.

Chrome gone wrong, lol... Grimlock looks decent bit I'm not buying that figure until we see it in a Hasbro-released G1 scheme.
