    if for nothing more than the drift sword, i will buy this

    but your review makes this piece look very impressive

    i was initially concerned about the hands after seeing some of the other photo's but this doesnt look as bad as i had preceived it to be.

    well done and i am excited about this guy
    g2 prime was one of the last transformers i got as a kid so i was pretty excited when RTS announced their rendition of him and this is just the icing on the cake

    man, that looks super cool, but i want an RTS Scourge and then a silver and black trailer to go with him... so, as cool as this looks, i'll be passing for now...

    As the others have said, awesome review, you sold me on the "ultimate" mode. I'd initially assumed the actual trailer would just sit in my closest with the rest of the trailers I own, but now I'm rethinking my position.

    I may feel differently whenever I get a chance to get this in my hands, but I do think I could've done without the electronics for the light up sword. I know it's another reference to the original toy that they added, and again I do concede I may feel differently once it's in my hands...but I wonder how much you could knock off of the price without the electronics used for the light-up sword.

    Thank you for your great review and pictures. I've already preordered this through captured prey, also planning on getting the reprolabels sticker set for this.

    This is perhaps my favourite looking 3rd party offer yet... Very high quality, a perfect compliment for G2 Prime! I love how it's compatible with the 3mm pegs! Thanks for the in depth review!

    damn my lack of funds,
    bills getting paid,
    and loss of my job at this moment. :banghead: 

    I know when I eventually get this set, it's most likely NOT going to have the bonus drift katana :(

    Mine should be here tomorrow, can't wait! Dunno where I'll put that one, my Prime shelves are completely full right now! The armor suit is kickass, but even better, the trailer actually looks like a trailer, something that's not necessarily the case with the City Commander and Protector trailers, which are more like rolling boxes.
