Hobbes' pictures make the 2-pack Prime look a lot better.

I'm just linking. The pictures were taken by a member over at I probably shoulda credited him to begin with. :redface The site is acting up or I'd link to the thread and credit him by name...

Hobbes' pictures make the 2-pack Prime look a lot better. The only thing that really bothers me is the wonky chest piece. It just looks so out of place. I don't know if it will be enough to make me pass on the 2-pack, though, simply because it's so convenient.

Pete, could you elaborate more on why you think the 2-pack Prime's vehicle mode looks more like the cartoon model?

I want Activator Prime and possibly Cybertronian Prime. If they make a Voyager Prime with an accurate axe, completely removable faceplate and a trailer I'll get that, too, but the one we've already seen isn't quite good enough for me to spend my money on and the Deluxe version is just crap in robot mode, although the axe is nice.

I also think I'll be passing on Cybertronian Megatron entirely unless they make an Activator version. I'll definitely be getting his Earth mode, though.

I want Leader Megs, Voyager pre-earth Megs, Voyager Earth Prime, and Deluxe pre-earth Prime. That is all, no 2 pack guys for me.

I'm warming to megs, prime still seems like :fail to me in every mold.

It's nice to see the vehicle mode TF'd properly.

It's also nice to see that the red on the chest matches up much more with the rest of the red on the figure.

I like "Orion Pax" better. He may not look like a vehicle you can ride around in but then again, he is a cybertronian vehicle and there aren't any humans on Cybertron.

Yeah, I dig him more than the Deluxe Earth mode. Voyager's still my favorite. Although, the side-by-side pics have convinced me I must have the Deluxe Earth Prime's Ax in Voyager Prime's hands...but I don't want to spend $20 or more on an accessory. Oh, Hasbro, you cruel mistress.

Yeah, I think the side view in particular really makes it clear. Although that Cybertron Prime is really coming off as the weakest of the three.
