I was on a spending spree at a local store that carrys vovagers, there were 2 Evacs, Mudflap, and Vector prime. I grabed one of the Evacs and MF & VP and thought to myself " Oh Split Lip, why did you pick up Vector prime!?" and all the bad things ran through my head, "Floppy sword!" "Horrible white!" "Under painted!", skipping ahead, I opened VP and prepared for the worse! I was mostly wrong. Safeguard: Safguard is a small ship much like Vector prime and serves as a weopon in both his modes. In robot mode he is very neat and well articulated with 10 points, impressive for a mini-con! Mini-con rating: 8 Vehicle mode: In vehicle mode Vector prime is like an ancient spaceship, and what a ship! The sculpt is magnificent! The paint apps may be few, but there so neatly applied! The white is okay, but I would've liked light grey. The maroon is nice, but the brown stands out more and in comparison, the brown makes the marron look like a dark pink! He is sculped with gears and oriental designs all over him, with large wings with solar panel designs in them. The wings are made of rubber but can warp. His main feature in this mode is a firing progectile located at the front of the vesel. The missle itself puzzels me, its the same translucent plastic as everything else but its not rubber... hmmm... Vehicle rating: 8.9 This is an impressive vehicle. Its a shame the white hides some of the detail. Don't let the colours destract you from a wonderful product here. Robot mode: The robot mode is where the mixed feelings get lost. He is an impressive figure: tall, posable, fun, simple but not to easy transformation, What more could you want?: light grey instead of white, no more rubber, better paint apps, theres quite a list. I'm going to skip to Vector primes sword, Its rubber, so what? well it does warp but mines straight and I'm keeping it that way. Vector prime is nice, I like him, or atleast the one I own. He's fun and I don't regret buying him. Vector prime has 13 points of articulation in robot mode. Robot rating: 8.3 Deffinatly one of the best figures I own, people gotta stop looking so much at the bad, and focus more on the good. If you don't already have th GF version or this one, I recommend it.
