I hope they bring that Prime out as a non-Toys-R-Us exclusive.

Oh and New Age Bluestreak anyone? I mean look at the gun, the head and the body design

Yeah it does look like Bluestreak (COOL!!!! a blue bluestreak)

Look closely at the Optimus, his chest opens and looks like he has a Matrix chamber in his chest

Edit:

Yeah, click on the one of only the cab mode and look down at the bottom

You get to see a BF Prime Gun, a Megatron in gun mode AND a matrix

I wish I could read Japanese so I could see if there's a release date.


Edit 2:
That car guy is from Alternators and it's Smokescreen not Bluestreak sorry
As with the other post:
see the packaging here

Aren't we jumping to conclusions here when we say that that Prime is the 20th anniversery figure? Has that been confirmed anywhere?

I mean isn't it just as likely that the Prime shown there is from Alternators as well?

I was actually under the impression that the specific 20th anniversary figure was the anime-style Prime statue. I would guess that this Prime is indeed from the Alternators line... however, since the release of that line is likely to be in the 20th anniversary block, it isn't far off target.

I think most people would rather have this than the statue.

Alright, I know there's something about the copyright of 'Bluestreak' that prevents the use of the name. But still, it fits the blue racer better than 'Smokescreen', IMO [although I am averse to neither].

And that Optimus Prime f~~~ing rocks.

Nice, Can't wait to see how the other Alternators look like, especially if there's a Starscream or an Ironhide/Ratchet

I'd have to say i'm 99.9% sure that the Prime is the 20th anniversary figure.

And this is just the first color scheme we know for the Smokescreen toy (rumored to be 3 different color schemes).

If the statue you're thinking of is full body (not just a bust) its part of a series being made by some company.

I think that it is the 20th aniversary one.

If it was from the Alternators line. then it means that the Alternators line is G1 revamped, and they could have come up with a better name.

Makes perfect sense as a name to me...

The statue's a series fragment? Ah, must've misread that one...

Palissades, who did the statue... also did a Ravage statue and I believe a Kickback too.

And if you think about it... when the poll occured, it was pretty clear it was for a toy and not just a statue.
