    I originally hated this figure, but it has grown on me. I will get it sometime over the summer. The Prime figure is nice for it's small size, and the mechalive looks cool. The lack of the shuttle gun really annoys me though.

    I'm still not sold on the feet, but to act as a counterweight for the upper body I can live with. I'd probably find a way to like him if I ever got him, but I'll probably not buy him myself.

    Yeah, the lack of the shuttle gun blows, but oh well. The figure itself is pretty solid overall.

    gah! you beat me to it! I thought I was going to finally start a feedback thread for a change :p  anyway, here's a few pics I just took just to show the different ways he can be posed. I wanted people to know that he doesn't have to be in the "ready to pounce/dropkick" leg pose. he can actually have his legs fully straightened. I love him. great head sculpt, easy but low kibble transformation, and amazing alt mode. a winner.

    I must've missed the news about the shuttle gun. Why was it not included?

    No idea. The pre-release figures clearly had it, but none of the retail ones do. It's not a deal-breaker for me, but it would have been nice to have.

    With other ROTF figures, i can understand the budget cuts.
    But with Stratosphere? HELL NO!! He's simpler than an Energon figure!

    I'm not down-hearted but all the cuts HASBRO have made are kinda tivking me off what with primes steps, starscreams hands, the shuttle-gun.

    Hmmm. Perhaps I should wait on Stratosphere and hope that there's a release down the line that includes it?

    I don't think the shuttle was necessary and it was probably very awkward to have the shuttle the same size as OP.

    Very nice review.

    I've been wondering about this figure. He may be simple, but I like his legs, and his ski feet. Plus the articulated hands are nice.

    I look at micro-prime, and see: [​IMG].
    Dammit, now the Radicon in me wants to get Prime and paint him black.

    I think the TakaraTomy version might have it, like how Henkei Hotshot had the guns that Classics Hot Shot lacked.

    wow, he looks so tall until you put your hands in the frame, then he looks deluxe size with wing kibble. I guess I'm saying he looks like the size of animated lugnut but with bigger wings and longer legs, or am I wrong?
