    looks fairly neat, kinda turned off by how big the backpack is, but whatever.

    Its kinda cool how he has a transformation similar to the legends and cyberverse figs, just with the hood making the backpack and legs coming from the rear of the vehicle instead.

    Looks to have a lot in common with the Cyberverse Prime.
    I love that little guy... so a upscaled version of him is bought on sight.

    The hitch/fifth wheel at the back of the truck is for his trailer in the Japanese Chronicles set. Sidecutter initially forgot to upload the image, so it wasn't in TFW's news post :)

    Ok, decentish toy, not one that I'm ever going to go out of my way to find, but repaint potential there.

    But Peaugh, what the hell are you up to in that review? Haven't watched one in a while so I don't know if splitting the vid into 3 sections is a new thing, but I find it really un-necessary, and I'm ashamed to say I was screaming at the monitor 'PUT THE BLOODY MECH TECH DOWN!!!' you told us far more than we needed to know about it right at the start, there's no reason to keep going on about it or fiddling with it. It really is to the detriment of the entire review. [\rant]

    The backpack is a little distracting, but the overall transformation is very clever.

    I might have to get him just to have a 3rd movie prime. Otherwise yeah, I'm going to be sticking to the battle blades one with matrix.

    Great review, and I really like the look of the little fella. Any chance we could get a comparison shot with the DOTM Voyager Megs in alt and robot modes? They seem like they might scale well.
    Cheers.

    Not a big fan of this one. Something just isn't right about the backpack and I'm not a big fan of the chest look either.

    meh...

    Thanks for the review, but looks like a pretty mundane figure...

    The backpack reminds me too much of defender prime...and O...do I hate that one....

    Can I see a comparison with deluxe starscream? I imagine he'll be taller than screamer which I would be happy with.

    Great review. Not 100% sure I'll get him, as I've already got a movie-verse Prime that I'm happy with, but he is tempting. The gun, even though it is a slight repaint of Mudflap's, actually looks like a good stand-in for the gun he has in the movie (imo anyways).

    Though I'm curious, how does he look next to the DotM Voyager Megatron figure?

    I dig him & think its awesome we get a cheap OP for DOTM.
    Plus I think in some ways he looks better than ROTF V OP.
    Especially in these grabs...

    Are we going to get a picture review from you on this one soon too?

    Any idea how weird it is to see this in Life-size...
