    Yes.

    Personally I like the Classics deco more than the Henkei, as "G1 Accurate" translated to "more boring" there. Not to say Henkei isn't excellent though. The Henkei Convoy was one of the few Henkei toys to make really good use of its token amounts of chrome. (I unscrewed it and attached to to a Classics toy. :)  )

    Honestly it's not a poseable as I was hoping, but it's still a great figure. And I'd say go for either the Nemesis or Henkei versions now since they are actually cheaper than the original Classics version now.

    While I've grown a bit desensitized to the mold, it's still one I pick up off my shelf to play with pretty often (though I usually grab my Magnus with the City Commander armor set), but it was the first and only toy I've bought that has prompted me to comment on his feedback thread "Dear Hasbro, here is my paycheck. Please continue to make toys this awesome."

    Yeah. Pick it up.

    Also, feedback threads are a good source of opinions on figures, so check them out - but also take into consideration that most posts come from people who just got the toy, so a lot of "new toy" sentiment goes into them. I know I'm guilty of it myself.

    I just transformed mine tonight. I'm lucky that my wife got me mine for Valentines Day. When I pick him up and play with him and think about it, I always think of her.

    On topic. He is a solid TF full of win. Transformation is very fun. He can stand in some nice poses that doesn't compromise his balance. Get him, Own him, Love him.

    Yeah, that guy is full of win. Especially, when you put the FansProject armor on him or the trailer. Can NOT lose with it.

    It is my favorite Prime toy. But I think I like the classics version instead of Henkei.

    I've been looking into getting this guy recently. What is a good price to pay for him these days?

    yes but unfortunately the Commander kits have made all versions of the mold expensive, that said it would be interesting to see what the price would be if the commander kits didn't exist quite a bit less id think thats said id like all versions of the mold and at least one version of the commander kit hopefully i can get Ultramagnus and the city commander reissuse before before the reissuse is sold out

    I wish he wasn't so expensive. My Classics deluxe Prime is FAIL compared to the Voyager.
