Holy Hell the Transformers Prime Toys Look Great

Transformers: Prime returns this Friday on The Hub, and while I won’t make fun of it, I have no intention of watching it, either. However, I will happily tell you that if the Arcee toy that USA Today revealed this morning is indication of the entire line, Transformers fans are in for some seriously good shit.

?Jesus. I think the toy looks better than her CG model on the show (I’m not trying to knock the show, but praise the toy). And it transforms marvelously well, too:

?Damn. Hasbro should be revealing more figures this weekend during the NY Toy Fair. USA Today says the Prime line will hit toy stores around October 1st, and Arcee will cost about $12, as she’s Deluxe class. Not bad, methinks.
