    hmmm.. "Cyberverse" Sentinel Prime is basically a simple mold.. it is way too simple and I bought it basically trying to pair with those legend class figures.... It has some details better than powerglide like the face sculpt.. but its joint/and balance execution is just poor. It seems to have quite a few articulation but those joints are always limited to a point I think is useless.. Transformation is simple but has to deal with aligning taps and pieces together...

    Here is the problem with its standing...
    [​IMG]
    Although it looks like standing ok.. but see the next photo..
    [​IMG]

    And by adjusting the hip a bit...

    It stands still ok but it is just not as easy to stand and pose-able...
    BAD design. No ankle to help although there is a joint at the foot.

    Vehicle mode...

    Some pose... very limited.... no neck, no waist,

    Its elbow swivel joint is VERY weak.. the shield is too heavy.

    Comparison with powerglide..

    overall I think it is a wast of money on this figure... unless you really like legend figures...

    Wow. He's so much redder than the Leader. Odd that the Hasbro photos are the other way around.

    Dude, for a little figure that's actually half decent. Plus we can always use Voyager Dotm Prime to step on mini Sentinel. >:}

    For all the figure's shortcomings, I'm still more impressed with the transformation on this then on the Voyager.

    Faults regardless, still planning on buying this over the Leader.
    At the end of the day, I can buy this for 1/5th the price of the Leader, and I can keep it on my desk to fiddle with.
    If I bought the Leader it would go on the shelf then never be handled because of its size.

    As it stands, Cyberverse is going to save me a lot of money this year. Going to be getting all of the Commanders bar powerglide.

    Review sounds negative but I'm looking at him and I think he's actually pretty cool!

    Wow, that's cool lookin'! These Cyberverse figures are all gonna be really cool.

    Bah, i stoll say commanders should have been true scouts...oversized legends are kinda meh in my book. Whatever though, if people like them they like them.

    I might pick him up, to go with my Preview Prime, but I wouldn't make a special trip to get him.

    Yeah, other then the feet he looks perfectly fine to me.

    I plan to get the leader version, but I may get the main cast in Cyberverse form as well.
