    ok, so i went with all the hype and got myslef the only alt prime TRU has recieved, and figured i'd be one of the lucky few to have one, BUT MY GOD, he suxxxxx

    those things on his sholders, the seats on his arms, the flloating sholders, hidiosly un-balanced and loose as a hooker.

    well, off to the junkion exchange...

    Yeah he has his short-comings (Like most Alts) but overall I'm happy with him. He's so big and imposing looking next to the other Alts.

    I like Alt Prime personally. I just don't see the hate on any of the figures (even Ricochet and Rollbar)v

    Sort of is in my book..

    don't care if masterpiece prime isn't an alternator, fact is, i think alt prime is a piece of crap, and i've sold him alrady, to someone who will appreciate him. i gave him a chance, and he fell short.

    no amount of convincing will make me like alt prime.

    Did you see the link of the alteration? It was enough to convince me.

    well, i sold him for $1 more than i paid for him, $36 cdn, so now i guess i'm happier than i was when he was in my posession. and i have my money back to buy classics prime and bumblebee when they come out, and i've made someone who reallly really want him be able to have him.

    BUT, if you wanted to send me one free, along with $100 or so to sway my opinion, i'm sure after a few weeks, and a bottle of absinthe later, he'd have grown on me. :dunce

    If I can ever find one I will get him even though I just sold all my Alts just because he's Prime.

    Hey Funkatron is there a link to how to TF him that way?

    The reason why the Alt. Prime grew on me was through fixing all the things suck about it, tightening the joints, painted in the missing paint apps, turns out to be a pretty good figure.

    No matter how much the bot mode sucks...the alt mode is awesome. Love the Ram SRT-10. Plus he is the only "real" truck in the line so far. IMO Nemesis Prime looks better, just because the black hides a lot of the imperfections that the red does not.
