Whoever told you that was talking out of his shiny butt.

Your maturity is an inspiration to everyone.

And considering at Botcon Hasbro said Takara wouldn't do it unless it was Prime pretty much debunks you and your source.

EDIT: No watermarks are better.

http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/Alter...formers-Wave-2

Nothing really major here, aside from the official in-packaging pics...

Before you start wondering about the license plates: These photos PREDATE the leaked test shots with state-specific license plates.

SWTF wave 2 will be discussed in a separate topic.

And there I was thinking page 3 was reserved for out of packaging pictures...

Ahem.

Though that presumes that everybody has their posts-per-page setting at the forum default...

That would have been nicer (and made more sense than the 'Vette...well, if they were going off of G1 Swerve, wasn't there a Universe Swerve as a sports car?).

Granted, I'm not a big fan of the remolds (since very little is actually remolded) and I am certainly not a fan of repaints...but after seeing the latest pics of Rollbar...damn is that a gorgeous red color! I hate the idea of promoting the repaints but...I think I'm going to have to get Rollbar.

Ricochet will not be picked up by me, though.

I liked the idea, too, that someone had of giving this Optimus Prime Wheeljack's sword to base him off of Laser Prime. Very cool.

is it me, or does Alternater Optimus need something more on the back of the truck bed that become his legs? they just look thrown on and they just don't look too attractive... and the seats on the fore-arms also? i hate being uber picky, but this optimus version looks horrid (except for the head mold and the chest). here is the website just in case peopel are wondering what the devil I am talking about. http://www.allspark.com/modules.php?...bum.php&page=1

Man...that's a pretty wussy lookin' gun.

It's too bad they couldn't keep the trend going of making the Alternator guns look like the old G1 guns...that was a cool touch. Not that many of them had it but Smokescreen, Silverstreak, Overdrive, Grimlock...I guess that's it. But, it's cool when their guns match up like that. I'd like it if they did it more often.

The jet pack on the legs makes me wonder , if theres a Gears repaint in the pipeline or maybe that's who the body was originally concieved for .or maybe I'm seeing things that aren't there. They could stick on the head from Swerve and paint him blue or just stick on Swerve's head and have a proper version of Swerve.

Course then you'd have Prime as a red corvette if you did a straight swap.
