    I got him in the mail the other day from BBTS and it's really cool..Lots of pieces but very sturdy, extremely posable, lots of articulation--A really great Prime toy--and stands just short of the MP in height. He can even transform without having to be taken apart, transforming much like his Gen-1 counterpat. The only kinda bah thing about it is his head/face..It's just awful.

    But if you happen to have the BTR Armada Prime, and don't mind keeping it in truck mode..Well, that extra head fits in just perfectly scale wise for this Prime.

    With the extra head pieces, I was able to fill out the flat head of the BTR one, as well as give Primes knees and upper legs a bit of thickness, as well as thumbs, for each hand..

    A really great Prime all in all.

    He's much taller than I thought he'd be, I expected about deluxe size.

    But him not being "Officially" Lego irks me.

    The original head makes him look like a movie drone version of Op

    They're not the same as lego blocks, they look much larger, and custom peices and all..but I'll see what I can do, sure.

    When I first saw this, I thoughht: "Wow, what a gigantic waste of money" and I must say, my opinion has changed. Now that I see how big it is, I think: "WOW! What a titanic waste of money!"


    This looks like a bad MOC, you think that they could come up with a more complex transformation with that sized. Both modes look like crap, and they didn't even make little driver seats or put a matrix in it's chest.

    The head swap makes it much better, but those wheels on it are absolutely crap. They ruin the whole thing IMO.

    I would also like to see an instruction scan and try to make my own out of legos with proper lego tires.

    With the BTR head on it, does it still transform the same? or does it have to be removed?
    Oh yeah, that would be great, if we had the instructions I may be able to cobble together a version using both Armada and Energon BTR Prime (Just cause I wouldn't have the proper colored blocks Lego wise).

    Got one today thanks to a fellow board member. The end result is cool but not without problems...

    -(ugly) head can't turn
    -torso tends to "split" when you transform the arm (it'll stay together, but some of the bricks want to detach)
    -in truck mode, there's one layer too many of bricks on the inner legs, preventing them to be perfectly parallel from the waist down (you get arched upper legs... doesn't look too good). If you remove one layer (choose your leg), the legs close together perfectly but you end up with asymmetrical legs. If you remove the extra layer on both legs, you get parallel legs but also a small gap between them... let's call it a design flaw
    -nothing pegs anywhere in truck mode

    Overall I still like it, the gun is cool, arm poseability is great, leg poseability is good (ankle poseability limited due to interference).
