I absolutely love the Cybertron packaging! They've managed to actually give them a rather interesting & very 'futuristic'-ish look, rather than just the same old thing with slightly different colours/logos they've used since beast wars... Good for hasbro I say! As for the individual bots, I'm normally not one to play the "make mine takara" card, but colour scheme wise & so on - please make mine takara :) (just glad I grabbed GF SS when I had the chance)..

I have to stress out that what you see in those pics are not necessarily the final colors. Many of these things are hand-painted prototypes. Remember last year's Toy Fair? Alt Silverstreak had a black face, and you could still see Smokescreen's rally decos shine through under the silver paint.

fair point. Judgement reserved until final product is released.

I hope they keep the packaging however

Those will NOT be Prowls final colours. They may be a little bit more design and detail to his chest areas and underside, however his 'police colours' have not been finalises.

Still, the mode is not up to par as with the rest of the Altenators, but they're be a spot om self for him.

For those looking for a comparison between G1 and Alt Swerve:

I'm surprised no ones mentioned it but whats with the "interesting" way they've used the gun/sheild with the S2000 mold, its certainly a novel approach but i'd've prefered a gun.

Uhm... you din't actually assume that's supposed to be "official"? Keep in mind the goys setting up those displays at Toy Fair actually don't have any idea how to transform these things properly...

I ADORE the new tech specs/bio's. Very well thought out and they made sure the show will fit the toys.

Prowl looks like G1 Sideswipe

Alternators Swerve's head looks like they finally finished coloring G1 Swerve's head. Very nice.

Dragstrip rocks! I have windcharger already and can't wait for this re-tool. i only hope that hasbro decides to keep the "dirty look" in the final product.

okay, i know that i am going to get crucifed for this but aside from the head and two-tone paint job on prowl (with the hershey kiss shape on the hood) it looks nothing like him. i mean i know this is supposed to be a line to resemble g1, not to be g1, but this figure just looks bad. there is still room for improvement since this is not the final product and i will still be adding it to my ever growing alt collection, but wow, i expected more for prowl. i tihnk i may put the head onto my custom prowl (Which rocks, hopefully in the next week of so i can post pics somewhere) and then fabricate a streetwise head. (shouldn't be too hard if i use sideswipe of the base for it). I truely hope that they don't disgrace prowl with this figure, please hasbro make the cop car streetwise. (i can hope since there is no license plate). its not like they are not picking miniscule characters...like swerve for example (which by the way looks sweet, the tracks mold rockz!)

are they ever gonna make another springer? or is bulkhead the closest we are ever gonna get? springer was my favorite growing up as a kid, for multiple reasons. a. the only transformer with a girlfriend b. he always had something clever to say. c. he was a triple changer. d. he was very green

I dunno. The pictures I've seen lead me to believe it's only a prototype that they're showing, as nothing's really painted.

EDIT: Although, I like the shiny blue. Hope they keep that . . .
