Default Why the hell am I arguing about color?

Maybe it's a really OLD bronze. Ever seen a really old penny?

I give up.

Vector looks terrible, I'm buying Inferno, maybe I'll snag the Galaxy Force repaint, blah blah, end of pointless argument.

Now THERE we go. Galaxy Force Vector Prime. That's actually a very good repaint and a very solid figure if you don't mind the bendy plastic doing, you know, some bending.

Inferno I'm still not sold on quite yet. Until there are pics of articulation I prolly won't even say anything else about him.

I've never seen a penny, personally, that had turned the color of brown poo. I have pennies that go back to 1905, and, well, they still look more like metallic bronze than.. well.. poo.

If your poo looks like metallic bronze, I'm thinking that you need to see a doctor, and the colors of Vector Prime are the least of your concerns.

Yup, that looks like "Generation 2 Series".

And now the packaging for both has been slightly updated.

Official photos for both, including comparisons with the previous versions:

This wave is in stock at the BBTS; would expect physical stores to follow shortly.

Are they repaints or original molds?

Vector Prime is a repaint from the Cybertron line, but Inferno is brand new.

I thought so. Thanks for the confirmation. I'll probably pick them both up. I never had an Inferno, or VP. I don't really like the cybertron line, but that one looks okay.

Yeah, the touched up pictures of Vector Prime look pretty cool, but actual photos look pretty awful. Be sure you check some out before purchasing to avoid severe disappointment.

Vector Prime is alright. He's simple for his size, but he's big for his price point and has electronic sounds shoehorned in somehow. He's also got a ridiculous amount of sculpted detail, but whether or not its painted in makes a difference too.

Inferno is out in stores.

No sightings for Vector Prime yet.

Apparently there's some weird problem for those who ordered Inferno from Hasbro Toy Store. There's a lot of reports about people receiving Vector Prime instead.
