    He really is a vastly different figure than most of the deluxes and voyagers we've been seeing. A much more elegant and involved transformation than most of the DOTM toys, yet not as frustrating as some of the ROTF stuff. An excellent balance between the two lines with two great modes. Definitely one to pick up even if you haven't been wowed by a majority of the line.

    Another excellent review. Sentinel will undoubtedly be the jewel of the DOTM line. It is nice how HasTak is giving us complex and detailed figures of the new characters rather than the Playscool versions of the others.

    Now the dilemma is whether or not to grab the Hasbro version as soon as I see it or be patient and wait for the MP version. I do wish there were a few more paint apps on both modes, but the bot mode does look amazing.

    (Oh completely off-topic, but it is nice to see you put savio-prime's hip replacements on your Prime, they are an awesome finishing touch to that figure).

    Don't even know what this character will do, but I am DROOLING right now. I've only ever bought one Leader full price before, but this guy and Ironhide I might have to get when I see.

    I'm loving Sentinel Prime. I still feel like it looks more like Alpha Trion though.

    Still, I'm going to enjoy having this guy in my hands, if and when I even find one.

    Such a great toy. I love how it goes from total box of a vehicle to streamlined robot.

    Peaugh, you know how you were saying in your vid that you havent found the speaker box, well you can see it in your vid. as you were transfroming the front of the truck it is in the cab area where the head is located in truck mode. you can also see it in a couple of your pics in your pic review.

    but for me this fig is bought on sight seen.

    No question about it- I'm getting a Sentinel Prime. I want a MP one, if possible. If the standard release is this good, then a nice shiny detailed masterpiece may be too good to ignore. Good review. I guess the next one I'm looking forward to is leader Ironhide's.

    Yeah, the first thing I did after the video was hunt it down :) 

    Ah! I was wondering if you had an account here! Yeah, the gun showed up this afternoon shortly before Sentinel did. Perfect timing! I left feedback for you already on ebay. Thanks again for the great gun and fast shipping!
