These "year of" Primes are getting stranger every year. It's a shame that they went to the trouble of dusting off the Laser Prime mold just to make this, though.

[EDIT]Soundwave too: http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/transformers-masterpiece-47/transformers-year-of-the-goat-soundwave-181360/. Because that's what you do to an MP mold, apparently...

Yes, and as the Hasbro version of Soundwave was previously so difficult to find and commands a high markup on the secondary market, clearly releasing this thing is the best way to address that. Way to go, Hasbro!

Meh. Want to see the cassettes in robot modes though.

Which is a shame as I'd probably bite on a chrome-heavy Movie-scheme Laser Prime. Takara's repaints are getting more random every year I swear.

Yeah, those things are so very 'what the hell?'.
I'm honestly surprised Hasbro didn't decide to stick their release Ratbat in this set. Glad they didn't, but still surprised.

One, these things look horrible.

Two, how do the two of them have any significance to the Year of the Goat? I mean, Year of the Dragon Optimus Prime has his trailer decked out in Chinese Dragon symbols. This is just ugly. We could've had tanker Optimus decked out with angry goat skulls or the like, but no, we get these clear plastic shits.

Goats are ugly and weird looking.
