    Voyager Prime is truly an awesome sight to behold. I certainly hope it's available on June 22nd and not just the Cybertron Deluxe version.

    Well, keep an eye out, I'll have reviews of Ratchet and Blackarachnia within a couple of days, and Lugnut by the end of next week.

    Having seen all the reviews/pics etc I actually think this toy looks better without the weapons and in both modes to boot.
    The axe just doesn't look like an axe to me at all, if it's introduced into the show then that will probably change my mind but for now it looks like something that Batman should have strapped to his back.

    I'd just chuck it aside and give it the two pack Prime's axe except for the fact that I don't want to buy that on account of the battle damage paint job ruining the great looking deluxe earth Prime figure and the (to me) entirely redundant Megatron figure.
    The water gun is nice, pity that you need the aforementioned axe to mount it in vehicle mode.

    The figure itself is just fantastic, I'm still a bit narked that they took out the retracting wing mirrors, I thought that was a brilliant detail that really added to the streamlined look of the toy but I guess it got axed by the budget constraints. I'm also slightly bothered by the fact that the light bar plate looks crap on his back, I'd have thought that getting this to fold down onto his back in a show accurate manner would be piss easy compared to his tasmania legs gimmick but apparently not.

    Overall though, a must have toy for sure, whenever it finds it's way over to Blighty. *fingers crossed for June*

    Peaugh, do you need to wind Primes hips up when you transform it back to truck mode?

    Not really. You just push it back up until it clicks securely.

    So the spinning trick isn't worked by a spring then?

    I'm not sure how it works. There are exposed gears, but no spring. The spring must be somewhere inside!

    It is. I took a couple of panels off to see how it worked. If you take off the abdomen grill, you can see the spring in there. Also, just pushing it back up works for you? Mine always wants to spin back up into place, and I don't want to force it in case I end up stripping a gear.
