First things first: One almost has to handle this guy to fully understand all the tabbing issues that have been complained about. I was quite surprised at how fiddly he was in comparison of the Leader due to some things not staying tabbed in (in both modes). The transformation is difficult because of the things not quite lining up and tabbing, which effects the alt mode, unfortunately. The paint apps are lacking, but surprisingly they bother me less in person. Okay, now that the negatives are out of the way, let's talk about the things this guy does better! Bot mode is beautiful! It is a really great likeness of Prime in the 2007 and RotF films! The articulation is exquisite! In addition to what the Leader has, he also has a waist swivel, He has double jointed knees, Articulated hands, and better head movement. His proportions are much better! Including: narrower shoulders, smaller backpack, and bigger thighs. Less unused kibble! Almost everything makes up part of his robot mode without hanging off unlike the Leader. Take away the tabbing problems from the transformation, it is a really cool transformation. I love how the hood collapses into his abdomen. I love all the rotations that go on in his midsection that is very reminiscent of his on screen transformations! With that said, I've always had a hard time keeping paint and knives away from my figures, so its time to do some cutting! The picture the below is Prime as he was, right out of the box. I have mods in mind for him. I will update this post with the most recent mods. And another for good measure.
