I like both. Not a huge fan of Megs' would-be-called "hands", but I still like him. Prime looks nice. I'd like to see Soundwave revealed.

I'm very pleased OP is in the darker colors, the bright Test shot we've been looking at wasn't sitting well.

it looks like Megs has a second half to his hands that weren't folded out, could be wrong but otherwise his hands look way to small. loving Optimus tough

Prime looks great. Not a big fan of this version of Megatron design yet, but the toy is faithful to the video game.

Hope I get to take pics of these toys in person at Toy Fair in a few weeks to share with all of you.

I didn't really need these pictures to confirm my status on WFC. The toys homage the Dark Days of Cybertron.. that's something, as a TransFan and Collector, something you can't miss out on. Onto the toys.

Prime - That Robot Mode is so solid. Looks really bulk, and that just awesome for a Commander. The vehicle mode is totally WW, can't miss out on that right there...

Megatron - ROTF Ravage? Nah, I think the BMFG makes up for everything that the Robot Mode isn't doing right.

I like the design for prime and megs is interesting enough, but offhand I don't foresee these being part of my collection at this point.

hey less money i'm giving to Hasbro is more that I have to give to Fansproject.

These look nice! And is it just me, or does Meg's hands look mistransformed???

I like Megatron's cannon, it looks appropriately bad-ass... that said, the figures look chunky like Titanium line bots. so many games are getting awesome figures these days, even new characters get decent detail and paint apps - yet all our beloved characters get for WfC are some deluxes? I don't see these standing up with Halo or Gears of War figures, the exact gamer demographic the game is aimed at. whoever said Voyager would have been better, I agree. I'll wait to see more pics, but I'll probably pass.

Not so crazy about Megatron hands or vehicle mode but I do like his robot form. Prime looks cool!

I really like that Optimus Prime figure! This toy line is already starting to look really cool!

I find these to be painfully uninspired.

Aside from the mistransformations (Prime's leg not being fully extended, and his backpack looks like it needs to be snapped into place somehow, but i could be wrong, and Megatron's hands definitely appear to have some more transforming that hasnt been done) these look pretty good.

The head sculpt on Prime looks fantastic.

I'll be picking these up for sure.


Are those ARTICULATED FINGERS on Prime?? I smell Voyager Class or higher.

I don't think its transformed wrong, I think its just a weird perspective because one leg is posed differently. They look the same length, just posed different.

and, why is Prime's gun bent to the left? It's like curved

I kind of like Primes alt mode...looks like a 1950's concept car.

Prime looks decent, decent enough that i may actually consider buying it, but Megs just looks aweful. Maybe it's transformed wrong in bot mode, but it just looks like junk. Same for it's alt mode, crap.
