I loved the TF Prime cartoon season one last four episodes the best. having homage G-1 characters in newer TF cartoons is what i like to see since i'm a old school veteran TF fan.
Unicron is one of my favorites & I like the whole epicness & seriousness dark nature he adds to TF cartoon episodes/movies he's featured in.
Thus far,I'm enjoying the extremly fast pacing of the season 3,episodes i've seen thus far. hopefully the writters keep up the fast pacing & have more connecting plot episoodes. I'm not a fan of having so many stand alone non-plot episodes in a season.
If it's also for the TF Prime toy line. then lets me express my positive opinions on TF Prime toys I like thus far.
(1)I think TF Prime Weaponizers leader sized Optimus Prime is a amazing toy,it's beats the animated/energon optimus toys hands down. (2)Skyquake,I like the high sculpt & fan catered buying age. (3)Rid voyager sized Bulkhead looks like a classics styled toy & it's probably one of the best bulkhead toys ever created. (4)Rid deluxe arcee has a sports bra & that's a nice homage to TM2 BA sports bra. the inner face sculpt is more mature & less toddler friendly like the FE arcee is. (5)Rid Vechicon,it looks better than the FE version in Robot mode. The toy has so many homages going on like the batmobile & animated/hftd lockdown. (6)Rid deluxe Knockout,he looks like a hotrod/sideburn type deign in both modes. I read rumors about a dead end toy for TF Prime,I think deadend is gonna be a recolor using the knockout toy. I love buying G-1 homages from the non-classics toy lines. The huge weapon is breath taking,a work of art.
My hopes & dreams for the TF Prime toy line is as follows: (1) A leader or supreme sized rock lord planet/bot Unicron toy. (2)combiners,a five man combiner for each faction team. the decepticons can get five predacons that merge to form predaking. the autobots could get five dinobots that merge to form dinoking. (3)I'd like to see one more leader sized toy & for it to be a decepticon. I prefer a newer persona character/toy design we haven't seen yet in the cartoon/toy line. because I'm not a fan of megatron,starscream nor soundwaves toy/CGI designs.
I'm curious to see how the Arachnid toy gets created. I know it's gonna be a deluxe & only have one alt mode,but i'm hoping hasbro blows the designs out of the park. I suspose If I had my way,I'd want a Voyager sized tripple changer for arachnid's toy,that has a robot,spider & helicopter modes. my guess is some creative internet TF fans will create their own 3rd spider mode from the deluxe arachnid toy that's a two changer.

I'd like Omega Supreme (with Ark alt-mode) to make an appearance. That way we may get a Supreme-class toy (though I suspect Optimus Maximus may be the Autobot 'Big-Bot' of TF:Prime). As for Unicron, I'd settle for a Leader class toy.
If we do get a Nemesis Prime toy, I hope it's not a straight repaint of Optimus - At the very least, the head and perhaps the weapons should be a little different.

And you can never go wrong with Omega Supreme. Making him the Ark in Animated was awesome! I'd hoped we'd get a figure of him there or from WFC.

Good stuff going on in the Prime toy line but what is up with that gun for Optimus? Would have preferred a rifle instead of the flip out cannon gimmick. And the LED is inside so it lights up? Yeah, I may just glue it open and rip off the grey back portion so it IS just a rifle.
Soundwave is cool, too small but cool and his alt mode wings can be positioned so that he looks like a UAV or if you fold them another way it looks like he has a Cybertronian alt mode too.

No boat huh? How about a hovercraft? Love me some hovercrafts!
Edit: Armored, of course. A hovercraft gets a flat and it's about as useful as a boat

Again, I basically have just started on Prime, but this seems to be--right out of the gate--on a par with Animated. And I truly loved that show. Hopefully, the series is more of a space opera than the tried-and-true formula of them being earth-based...maybe that is where the series is at right now, I don't know.
With the tedium of the Bayverse and the death of Animated, Prime is truly something worthwhile to sink my teeth into.
