    ALTERNATE MODE

    The big (tiny) rig actually looks good with flames on the front and doors, silver accents and painted windshield (pictures don't show it). Working front and rear (1st set) wheels, the very rear ones are actually molded and hide a pivot point. Strangely, it only has one smokestack (on the right). It looks smaller than the Spychanger Prime, but they're actually the exact same size.

    TRANSFORMATION

    Nothing too fancy here but it's another interesting take. Split the top of the truck and fold down the halves to form the arms. Holding the arms/torso, rotate that whole unit to the back. Now split the front of the truck in two and fold back the halves to form the lower legs. Fold down the arms and you're done.

    ROBOT MODE

    Articulation is limited but decent : shoulders (ball joints) and hips (ball joints). Torso has painted windows on the chest (nice touch) and some cool sculpting on the chest and legs. Colors are kinda reversed compared to the other movie Primes (blue top, red pants) but I actually like it. Headsculpt is very nice, I wish the bigger Primes had that edgy feel. Overall, a much better toy than LOC Prime imo.

    I'm surprised that there hasn't been a leader class "Prototype" leak

    I for one love the Legend guys, and the movie line looks like it'll be no exception. ^_^

    Now that right there shows up what my problem with the Movie Legends is. The vehicle modes look great, but because all the paint apps are focused round the vehicle modes, the robot modes suffer. I just can't get past how underpainted those robot modes look. (though Megatron is actually quite good)

    Wow - they actually look pretty good!
    If they put in a little more effort and painted the arms (the inner side) with a little big gray and red, it would've been perfect.

    got him today. his truck mode is barely bigger than a minicon, but because everything is crammed in, it is peggged in nicly with the hood pegging into the fists. he looks like a ultimate prime in voyager primes hands as well ( like an ultimate bb would look in an adults hands) his tf is new and refreshing, plus leaves no kibble, since the big boots look right on him. his bot mode is a little thin from the side, and has decent articulation. plu8s the hood can fold down as rollor scates. he is impressivly his chest looks like the lower half of rachets face though. b+. get if you see him, but no need to spend hours looking for him

    Got him, Megs, Screams and Blackout today. Deffinately worth the six bucks Cnd. Alt mode is so nice for something so small. The detail in 'bot mode is crazy, and he looks awesome next to Megs. decent poseability for his size, arms/legs move, double jointed hip allows for extreme poses! Endless fun! 9/10! (wish he had two smokestacks, then he'd be perfect!)

    Accuracy rating: 3/5.

    21. No public discussion about rules or administrative action taken on members.

    Please don't bring it up here, any further posts on the subject will be removed.

    My one's shoulders are pretty tight though, you might want to try popping the balljoints out and putting a little clear nail varnish on them to tighten them up a bit.
