    If you were to ignore the horrendous paint job, would you say that Blast Punch Primal was more accurate than Air Attack Primal? I've been looking at both and I somehow see quite a good resemblance in Blast Punch Primal, especially in areas such as shoulder pads. Too bad about the paint and poor articulation.

    If we're ignoring paint job, then year I like Blast Punch better.

    I love Blast Punch OP, in fact he's one of my favorite molds from all of BM (not that it's saying that much). I'm not sure where the "poor articulation" comment is coming from, other then the no elbow hinge on the left arm, he's got all the points and a few extras that all modern standard TFs have.

    He's a solid toy that's quite a bit of fun, his gimmicks all work, and work well.

    Got mine for 20 bucks here complete. He's certainly the best Primal from Beast Machines (or RID) even though he's incredibly out of scale...like all of Beast Machines really.

    I like Blast Punch Primal too. I don't even mind the colors much. It does have pitiful elbow articulation (none on the gimmick arm, tiny range of motion on the other), so he kinda looks like a guy with arm casts holding them straight, but it also fits in better size-wise with other Maximal toys than the Supreme-class.

    Air Attack is good if you don't mind the fact that his robot mode is bloody gigantic.

    Then again this is the same line that gave us "Supreme Cheetor"...

    Air Attack is by far the most show accurate, he has Gary Chalks voice for christsake! In my opinion this figure is one of the most impressive Transformers ever, he easy comes in my top 5 maybe even as high as number 2.

    I really like both of them. BP wins out here. I usually don't care about scale but damn, aa is a huge robot. I tend to have more fun messing with BP.
