I choked on that a little bit, yes.

I've also asked Knightdramon to teach some of these people some proper English, but his rates are too high

This Optimus sucks. I guess they can make anything into Optimus as long as he is red and they put his head on it.

At first, I had to agree with you guys.

It then occurred to me this isn't a bad thing (provided he transforms properly). This Alternator won't be available until late this year or sometime next year. According to the original movie and cartoon, Prime's dead right now, as in finito; pushing up cyber-daisies; good night, folks! But, as we all know, Optimus Prime has a distinct inability to stay dead. When he returns, he'll need some sort of body to wander around in, and an Alternator body is as good a body as any.
So, I'm getting Alternators Prime. I'll let MP Magnus take over looming over everbody else.

I doubt he'll be remolded into Scourge or Nemesis Prime since the former is a hovercraft (like that would stop them) and the latter isn't known to exist in the G1 Continuum (not as if that would stop them either). Ultra Magnus isn't that interesting without a trailer (which wouldn't stop them anyway). I'm guessing Motormaster if it's a Decepticon, Rewind if it's an Autobot.


As for Mirage, my shelf whimpers in surrender.

The binaltech story is different from the cartoon one. Megatron and most of the Decepticons are imprisoned in a time-rift to leave only the Autobots against Unicron. So if anything, Prime is up and standing because Megatron is missing.

As for Scourge or Nemesis Prime...I cannot agree more with you. I've read over 100 replies on tfans, and a good 60 of them said sth among the lines "He should be repainted into Scourge". RID messed up the minds of so many youngsters...

I'd rather have Motormaster. Grimlock is fine as a leader, no need for the stereotype to follow.

I also think the repaint will be motor master, as they might be trying to finish off the stunticons.

Prime, I think I'll pass. Mirage I might get. 10th Anniversary Waspinator and Cheetor look great.

Seeing as Breakdown, Dragstrip and Wildrider have problems that have to do with their names and relevance to cars\other characters [the first two aren't very appropriate and the latter is reminiscent of Kamen Rider], I say we will be lucky if we get two out of five [DE and Motormaster].

Very sad fact as I was looking forward to get all five of them. Hopefully they will manage to alter Dragstrip's name and release him as the remould of Ford GT.

Very cool...but I'm extremely disapointed that it's Mirage and not Hot Rod...Rodimus Major...Rodimus...whatever. I thought he would be the perfect fit for the Ford GT.

But then again...I do like Mirage...and a blue Ford GT would be pretty cool (all I've ever seen is red).

As for the Optimus Prime/Dodge Ram. Yeah I'll second the "it reeks of 'afterthought'" comment.

Heh heh...Magnus Ram, Nemesis Ram, Motormaster Ram, hell even Rodimus Ram...the possibilities are endless! heh heh

Well...that kind of depends. We have Dead End, the repainted Prime could be Motormaster. We have Dragstrip (in the form of Decepticharge) and Breakdown in the form of Wheeljack.

So all we need for a makeshift Stunticon reuinion is a Wildrider of some sort.

AH well...I can dream, can't I?

They might as well just sell every lame mold as Prime. I see it now they will sell millions of the lamesty Tfs cause they have put a prime head on it. They are geniuses in marketing aren't they.
