    Megs looks pretty good. Not sure if he's white or light grey. I wish they would slap a new head on him and repaint him into Warpath already

    nice paint on pretty shoddy molds ~ i remember a Hasbro rep making fun of how bad Robot Masters Convoy was back in the day, but he blows bug-eyes here out of the water ~ and nice placement of the autobrand on the side of his arm, lol.

    He looks angry - he must've seen himself in the mirror.

    Yeah, Prime's head is supposed to be turned around, but you'll still see the back of his head in truck mode.

    So I guess the finished product won't have dark blue windows and a shoulder symbol like this? Disappointing.

    Prime isn't to bad, but Megs is a great paint job on a terrible mold.

    I guess it's too much to ask the people who set up the product shots to transform their characters properly!

    Why couldn't they make primes legs collapsible and improve the tolerances on the cab mode?

    They are nice toys, but since I'll never see them on the shelf I'm not excited by their existence.

    Too bad these molds are kinda... crummy.

    These two should be used for instructions on how to ruin potentially good molds my adding lame gimmicks.

    My original versions of these molds will more than suffice.

    both look loads better than the previous release of them. Though prime was only missing his shoulder brand anyway. xD

    Would have been nice if they made a trailer attachment for this prime. Since it would hide his head better with a cover, along with not make his legs seem so long if they were the wheels for the trailer on top. Oh wells, my papercraft one still works perfect for that.

    The lame gimmick on prime can be fixed with some cardboard. Megs on the other hand... Well he needs a hand outright. xD

    Megs' new paint job is better than the old one, but not enough to make me want to buy it. And that Prime mold is just terrible.
