    Just got my Battle-Hooks Prime from tru half-off by getting him with leader Starscream. He's more impressive than I thought. My only knocks on him are the "battle damage" on his head. All they did was paint it half black. The rest of the damage looks pretty good actually, some of the best I've seen. Other than that I modded him and switched the hooks on his arm so that they face the right direction. If I left them the way they are, when you bend his arm at the elbow there is no other way to position the hooks (other than closing them) than to have them "hooking" and "bending" away from him, which just looks weird to me.

    Some people wanted some pics to compare him to regular prime with the blades so here they are. (I have Buster Prime not regular, but it should suffice :D )

    Lol, somewhat, but not really. In fact, when I first got him i had trouble getting it back the way it was so that it would "slide" properly when I took one of them out. The blue part folded under it and it got stuck.

    I agree that in person the only battle damage that looks bad is the face smudge. Still not gonna buy it, though.

    That face stopped me from getting him and SS during the TRU sale.

    Instead I am getting Buster Prime and waiting for the MP Movie SS.

    If possible, can we see pics of Battle Hooks Prime Combined with Jetfire?

    Soon, I will hopefully be able to show some pics with him combined with Leader Jetfire as well as some experimenting with regular leader Optimus to mix/match swords/hooks.

    I hate it... I saw it in TRU, and ya know what I saw... besides the "battle damage".. MISSING DETAILS LIKE THE INNER LEG FLAMES AND THE FLAMES ON HIS DOORS!!! I mean what the hell?? The missing blue paint on the windows I could deal with, fine, what ever, but they chinsed out on other details to replace them with crappy battle damage!! SERIOUSLY HASBRO, WHAT THE EFF?!?!

    Hasbro did really good for Leader SS, but not for his Leader Prime.... A definite pass for me...
