Hasbro had an extensive display of the upcoming Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise main line at Toy Fair 2012. Most of these figures we've already seen from one source or another, however this is our first look at the new mold Robots in Disguise Voyager mold Bulkhead! We finally see the Voyager Starscream that was last seen in the prototype stages at last year's BotCon. The Deluxe Bumblebee repaint Hot Shot is revealed to have a movable visor. We also get looks at the new mold Deluxe Robots in Disguise Vehicon and Knock Out in their vehicle modes! Lastly we get a look at the Leader Class "Weaponizer" Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

And I like none of these. Especially that Prime and Bulkhead.

I take that back, the vehicon is okay and maybe screamer. Not sure yet on him.

I'm really liking Hot Shot!
Not really liking Bulkhead.
Not too sure about Knockout, I was really hoping he was gonna get a nice figure.
The Voyagers are just weird with their transluscent arms, if there was actually a reason, I'd be OK with it, but for a gimmick, not so much. Usually I'm OK with translusency (like with the Bot Shots or weapons once in a while), but not when it's such a sudden change between solid and it. With that said, I think Starscream looks alright, and the arms that much of a for him.

Also interesting to see a Transformers Prime game for 3DS (and for Wii).

The ones we've seen already all look good.

The rest? No so much. I don't understand why they couldn't just use the FE Bulkhead mold instead of make a new horrible one.

Also, WHERE IS SKYQUAKE?!?

my god. those voyagers are terrible. glad i got the first edition bulkhead and prime. the RID ones are total shit. but i do want megatron. the deluxes are pretty good. im getting arcee to fix my FE one and i want the drone, hotshot, knockout, wheeljack, soundwave and ratchet.
damn those are bad.. the only good voyager is megatron.but the deluxes are lookin good 8) cant wait to get hotshot. and you can tell that knock out is mistransformed along with a lot of others.

Ah, so in TFP:RID, Arcee's breasts stay in place, and Starscream has the...um...chest articulation. My, how the screw has turned...someone into Slipstream a bit more easily?

Actually, since the weird-ass situation with the First Editions, I'm at a loss as to which figures will end up being rare enough that I'd feel bad about kitbashing them.

And too bad the Weaponizers appear to be even more ginormous than I'd first suspected. I'm guessing even Optimus won't really be in scale with anything.

And is there a FE Megatron Voyager different from the one here? I can't keep track anymore. I'm right across the border from Canada, but I just didn't know far enough in advance to save up me Christmas money...*sigh*

Still, shouldn't be so negative, as I'll end up buying the majority of these guys.

Okay before I give my thoughts all I'm saying is that the one I'm going to buy out of all there figs? Is only Voyager Megs >.>...

1) Knockout : Lame. He doesnt look as tough as he is in Prime.

2) Arcee : Hate the blue colour nuff said.

3) Weaponizer Prime : WOW...That head is wayy too big -.-...He looks like a chibi(small in japanese) version of Optimus in Prime @_@>..

4) Weaponizer Bee : He looks quite good in packaging. But already saw the official picture to know that he have a huge backpack >.>...

5) Voyager SS : He looks decent. Still pass since I already have DX SS and SS design is just not my cup of tea. As if in the original CGI design.

6) Voyager Bulk : ....Head lacks detail,why is his hand HOLDING the wrecking ball isntead of the hand turns into the wrecking ball O.O...Hate the chest design and he seems to have some sort of mini-wing...Lame and pass.

Well I hoped for them to reveal Rumble,Airachnid,Dead End,Ironhide and Skyquake but meh I guess I have to wait sigh...

Good question. However, the first three waves have already had their case breakdowns mentioned. I'd say that by the time Skyquake is due, in whatever wave that might be, we'll find out about it around Botcon time.

They won't reveal all of their secrets at Toy Fair, so they have stuff left over for Botcon and then SDCC. We know a proto exists, though.

He'll most likely be Wave 4, I assume.

Knockout, on the other hand, I still believe is mistransformed. I'd really like to have the finished product, in hand, before I make a final decision.

Is it bad that I saw Knockout and thought he was wearing a tutu?

So Hot Shot's goggles DO flip up! Now I must have him! :D

yeah, Hot Shot is great. Voyager Screamer looks okay. Knock Out could be decent, I'm not sure. Bulkhead isn't terrible, but the FE one does look to be miles ahead. Ratchet looks kinda cool. The rest I've already seen and commented on plenty.

Hate most of it, like Hotshot's head, liked Starscream until I saw his translucent arms.

I agree with everyone about Hot Shot XD I love this guy! Now I sort of want to see him in TFP, and then EXPLAINING him, XD

May get Voyager Starscream. As much as a detractor as the clear arms and ankle kibble may be, He still looks okay otherwise, and I'm not holding my breath to find a FE at a price I would be okay with paying. I think I'll get the bigger one for less. :P

And a Prime game? Anyone know who's dev'ing it? I hadn't heard about this up till now. Wonder what it'll be like.

And *thumbs down* on the rest of the toys. :/ Probably not touching anything else, *sigh*

Voyager Megs I can accept with the clear bits, because he's all hopped up on Dark Energon like all the kids these days. Same for Skyquake, if they release that mold in those colours, with the bright pink clear bits, because, well...Skyquake. Other than that, I don't really like my TFs having Energon body parts. It's sort of like a human having an arm made of solid blood.
