It's positive feedback if you will. A new year means a new toy line, which yields more Transformers toys, and ultimately, a new incarnation of the face of the franchise - Optimus Prime. Generations, or Classics 3.0, will be making it's start this year, and it is headlined by the toys for the War For Cybertron video game. Peaugh has gotten a hold of the figure and has subsequently posted a review. This figure is in the Deluxe class, and you can check the review embed below, or via Youtube.

EPIC FAIL ! Where are the WWI designs when we needed them?

And look what that gave us toy wise. It's time to move on, this design is phenomenal and this line is definitely something I am picking up instantaneously.

Sorry, no character or substance to these at all. Save for maybe Bumblebee.

Hasbro can't be re-doing Generation One every 4 years. This is as good as it gets, and let's be thankful we're even getting toys for a video game...

VERY nice figure! =P~

Looks like I've got yet another Prime to add to my ridiculously large Prime collection. :lol:

Don't really like vehicle mode, but bot mode looks okay. I want to see what they do with Meg and Shockwave. Ahh the possibilities!!! And do you guys think they will make an Omega Supreme? Probably would have to be Leader class.

Why should we be 'thankful'?

Probably because Hasbro didn't have to bring this line back to us.

Really liking this Prime can't wait till he hits stores. I really hope Takara releases their versions of the Generations line right around the same time Hasbro does don't want to wait two years like they did with the classics line.

Is it just me, or is this video loading frickin' slow? I have a cable modem and it's testing out fine at speedtest.net, but I can't watch this thing without it freezing and loading the whole way through. Finally just gave up.

Anyhow, the alt mode isn't as cool as I thought it would be, but it's still one of the figs I'm really looking forward to.

WWI isn't G1 designs.

Yeah, that's true, but Hasbro is a toy company that is making toys. We don't really have to be thankful for anything. Before I get blasted for saying that, I understand what you mean Blurrz, and I understand the whole buisness, but you all do know that we don't really need to thank HAsbro for anything, right?
I'm not Hasbro-bashing. I'm just saying that Hasbro needs us to purchase their wares more than we need to purchase their wares. I'm talking need here, not 'need' as in 'we need the "plastic crack..."' ok?
Hasbro isn''t the Grand Inquisitor, we don't need to be thankful for anything they 'give' us, becuase they don't give us anything, we exchange our money for their product.

Ok, Ok, sorry for that, just wanted to say. It seems like we've been getting hounded somewhat for not vapidly applauding things around here, to me at least.
That being said, I like the way this toy looks, but I also agree with Mr. Optimus Prime...it seems like it's lacking character to me. I liked the WWI designs, and this line seems like as much of a WWI line as we're going to get, and I'm ok with that, but this doesn't look like it has whatever WWI Prime had that appealed to me. Note that I said "me," as I'm only speaking for me, and I don't know what it was about WWI Prime, but it had something.
To Mr. Optimus Prime: maybe it's that this isn't "new", since we have the WWI designs? I don't know, just a thought.

Classics wasn't either. They are all modern representations of Generation One characters. Regardless, this video game is now, Dreamwave and WWI is defunct, and the end result is we're once again getting good figures that aren't part of a movie or cartoon toyline.

I agree on how these are a bit.. how do I say, let's say they're a bit 'buff'. But what can we expect? This is basically pre-Generation One, no streamlining, no earth friendly looking vehicles or robots. This is the raw, what I'd expect from an alien race.

What, you want to see Revenge of the Fallen toys on the shelves for the rest of your life?

i look at it this way if prime isnt bigger than deluxe that gives me hope of a properly scaled omega or even trypticon which would be great even if not this could potentially be one of the first lines in a while that i buy completely great job hasbro

Well, as much as I personally have liked the ROTF line, NO! I'm ready to move on.

i'm reading these posts and it's sickin

this fig along with the whole line for this game is:

new
fresh
and cool

WHAT IS MR. OPTIMUS PRIME'S BEEF!!!?????


dude, you're not gonna get War Within Prime or whatever the heck you wanted.
if you don't like it then have a drink by yourself.

personally, this is an awesome take on an already iconic hero.

i've always wanted to have a pre-earth prime, a cybertronian prime, a completely different design "prime".

this does that and more.

with the game coming out we get to see cybertron for what it is/was. and from the sound of it we're also getting one kick as story to boot.

ya, ok the alt mode seems a little weak but what did you want? a truck!? It's freakin Cybertron, there's no such thing as an earth moded truck up there.

again, if you don't like it just :-$

you're never gonna get what you're asking for.

The bot mode is awesome and based on the points of articulation....i can almost assume you can get some wicked poses from it.

can't wait to see the rest of the line :grin:
