i can guarantee that if i were to go to 3 different TRUs none of them would have this. price seems a bit steep at 10 bucks for what looks like a figure thats in between a scout and a legends. Hasbro & TRU really need to work on their pricing.

"Limited Edition Preview Pack"? I'm going to call it the "Widely Available Gimmick-To-Sell-A-Movie Pack"

And really? Red and Blue 3D glasses? 1991 was 20 years ago.

We're we told these were coming out a few months ago, with the glasses? I think the other one of the two has Bumblebee..

Meanwhile over here, overstocking means I will probably never get any new Generation toys.

The preview figure seems okay but I'll wait for the trailer

My TRUs for some reason decided to put out ROTF Wave 1 deluxes and Wave 3 voyagers for Christmas along with the glut of Animated deluxes that were still on shelves. Just recently I've started to see newer figures but I'd say wave 2 of HFTD is lost to time at retail; or I'll see it next year.

Has anyone had any luck finding this figure yet?

At about 4:15 PM in New England, there was a commercial for the 2011 Kid's Choice Awards that mentioned that it was sponsored by the DOTM toys. It showed an image of Voyager Prime. :APPLAUSE:

I found few today. Looks like that figure was the only new item they put out.

Here's a real quick You Tube video review I did of him:



No idea why it isn't coming up

Thanks Ryan

Just wanted to add some more of my thoughts having spent a few days with the figure now. I assume these will be the figures that come with transforming platforms and such and if this is how the new size class is going to be I'll probably be buying these over deluxes, Prime is that good and that fun. It's not super articulated but for the size it has a lot plus the joints are real solid and tight. Transformation is fun which isn't always the case with figures now a days. As someone who is not a fan of the movie or the tie-in toys I'm really looking forward to getting the other figures in the line.

Wow, this early? I'm half surprised. I should hop on over to TRU...but they'll probably just have Bumblebee blasters and voice changers, along with Bludgeon and the Fallen. Fun stuff.
Anyway, I was planning on nabbing this guy when I first saw pics of him last year anyway, so it wouldn't hurt to get him.

But seriously, why couldn't we get a deluxe of some sort instead? Even Bumblebee would satisfy me! I would be cool if we did get a preview deluxe later on.

Dissappointing for a preview figure.

THIS ACTUALLY LOOKS PRETTY GOOD THE BOT MODE IS OKAY I GUESS but the truck is pretty excellent and I'm not as disappointed that its smaller than a scout because if they are commanders of legends then they don't have to be overly tall

Looks like the took alot of cues from ROTF Legends Optimus Prime. I can't wait to see this on the shelves. I think it looks awesome.

Not too bad for such a small figure. I picked him up but would have prefered a deluxe preview figure but a nice little tease. Great alt mode. The legs have a little bit of chicken walk look to them due to slide joints of the feet.

Not bad looking at all! I may pick these up when they release the full version with the trailer.

thats actually pretty good for the class size might just pick this up if its ever released around here, with the way its been ill be lucky to find it a month after the main line launches. Still waiting for RTS and wave 2 PCCs.

I merged the new video review topic/news story with the sightings topic/news story about this figure and also included Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999's video review that he posted the other night.

Posted by Dr. Caelus on March 6th, 2011 @ 1:42pm CST
I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to scout-class renditions of classic characters like Optimus Prime, so that I could take some of my current scout class figures that look too small next to the predominately deluxe classics figures, and give them their own little world. That won't work terribly well if Optimus is half the size of Hubcap.

More disappointingly, I would presume this means Powerglide will be tiny, so he won't fit in with my other scout-class 'minibots'.

Can confirm they are going for $8 at Walmart. Just bought one an hour ago.

Very solid little toy. Everything snaps or pegs into place. Accessories well integrated with Optimus (jetpack/guns). Very happy with it.

I just got him today! Boy is he cool for a little figure. He's nicely sized up from legends class. Very poseable, very sturdy, great accessories. If any of the others in the line end up anything like him, then I think this line won't be so horrible.
