    Looks like the MPM Prime can eat your soul.
    It can posses you.
    Instead of you possesing him.

    So i unexpectedly bought this today at my local TRU that never has anything. I told myself I was going to pass over the MPM's but plastic crack syndrome won out. Bumblebee and Barricade will probably be on my shelf at some point as well.

    Some brief thoughts. I absolutely love the bot mode. The Transformation is a NIGHTMARE. I have the same hood tabbing problem that everyone else has. Emgo's fix did not work for me and I could not get the damn hood to tab down though it's possible I did something wrong. I'm not eager to try again. Lining things up and getting them to stay tabbed was also difficult at times.

    Overall I'm pleased with the figure but That will probably be the first and last time I ever transform him.

    I don't care about a different transformer's accessory being compromised. Bayverse Prime should have his trailer anyways.

    I'm pretty sure they will do a DotM remold at some point, possibly with his trailer. MPS go through every possible repaint and remold, and they never gave us a movie-accurate trailer anyways. All they'd have to do with the bot is remold the forearms and abs and give him a different gun if they're feeling generous.

    Where are you located? I am in California and have NOTHING. Checked item numbers and DC stock in almost every Southern Cali TRU...

    I don't quite like him with his hips extended. The big gap it leaves looks really awkward.
    Nice try but, no

    Hasn't been confirmed, but the street date was pushed back to November and some TRU workers are saying Hasbro wanted all the stock sent back. Evidence points to a recall so they can fix the problems.

    I'll be surprised if there isn't some way for you to trade yours in if that is in fact what they're doing.
