Opening My first edition now. That thing looks awful. :evil:

I honestly feel sorry for the European fans now. I looks like they just plain ruined it with automorph. :-(

*facepalms*

Now, I really have to wonder if my first thought was correct. That this is the kid's line and First Edition is for the collectors, only. The accuracy went out the window on this one.

So far, we have THREE strikes against Hasbro for this toyline.

Voyager Optimus, who's chest isn't a cheat, but the rest of him looks to be a mess.
Deluxe Cliffjumper, who is just a mess with a horrible backpack, not to mention, shrunken and has his accurate weapons striped from him.
And now, Deluxe Bumblebee, who has an Automorph that isn't needed, a weird collar out of some sci-fi horror movie, but he comes with both blasters.

I'm afraid to see what they've done to Megatron, and I absolutely am afraid to see what they'll do with Bulkhead. I'm hoping they just repack the F.E. for the mainline, because he's excellent and shouldn't be changed. Hasbro, don't screw everyone over with this.

A very good review of a "meh!" figure. Automorph will never take priority over having less kibble in my opinion, and the lack of detailed paint applications on this guy is appauling. First Edition for me thanks. Might pick one of these up cheap to get a second blaster.

It's not true what Beno says about availability. My store has, or had, two Wheeljacks in addition to Cliffjumper, and while I can confirm there is an extreme lack of voyagers/Powerizers, I was curiously able to order some in to the store for the end of the week. Will see how it goes.

Really glad I have the FE of this fig, cuz THAT is just horrible. Now I just need FE Cliffjumper, Optimus and Bulkhead.
heading down to Frank and Sons today to see if anyone got them and would gladly pay the premium prices, the RID stuff is just... fail

On a side note I'll be heading to New Castle, Uk (flying from Los Angeles) for business next week anyone know of a good toy store or 2?

Lol, it's Newcastle mate, all one word. If it's PRIME figures you're after then Argos is probably your best bet. There's three of them in Newcastle alone.

:-?
There's a lot of hating going down towards the Prime RID Deluxe/Revealers figures right now?

Could the Revealers figures be the current line equivalant to the Classics range, with the Powerizers being the equivalant to the Voyagers? :???:

Chew on that one..! :P

I was really hoping that this would be an improvement over the First Edition Bumblebee figure, but if anything, I think this is a reason to just cross him off my list of toys to pick up.

These aren't terrible, but I have to wonder why they even made new molds anyway. Why spend the money when you already have perfectly good molds?

:D
I have a whole lotta love for Transformers and feel the variety put out for all sorts of ages is a good thing to keep the franchise alive and very much kicking!
The comparative pictures of TF Prime Voyagers vs Deluxes will I'm sure be up on Seibertrons awesome forums some time very soon? Keep 'em peeled!
I'm leaning towards the TFP Deluxes/Revealers being the current line versions of CHUG and the same for the Powerizers/Voyagers? Does that make sense people? ;)
As long as Argos keeps stocking 'em, I'll keep buying 'em! :D

No, it doesn't. This is the second time you've posted it and gave no explanation. I might be able to figure out what point you're trying to make if you'll clarify.

Seems that way. I wonder if they did market testing and kids found the FE toys too complicated, and that's why it's taken them so long to put out this line, because they pretty much had to go back to the drawing board. :-(

This Bee looks okay, but I definitely prefer the First Edition one. The chest and neck are way less accurate here. The door wings look a little better here, and the face is brighter (I don't mind the FE face), and he has 2 guns, but other than that, not as good.

Although for the record I really love Voyager Prime. I just hope there are some other good ones beyond First Edition. Wheeljack is a good sign in my opinion.
