I feel like for most people, their decision was made when it was the only version released thus far of a very popular army builder. But that aside, I really liked the figure. The transformation is ridiculously simple. Just tuck the arms in, put the legs together, and fold in the head. Really, depending on how he was posed before transforming the only step may be folding the head into the chest. With the grill of the car behind/above the head, he does look a bit more alien with his proportions, but I think it looks good. The colors work well, though he could use more in robot mode. A bit bulkier than the in-show counterpart, but just a good looking figure. His gun is neat, and surprisingly character-specific. It has a blade/shield/bludgeon on the side, which goes well with the gun/sword that Ratchet and Cliffjumper have. But that's unmistakably the Vehicon's signature triangular barrel. Side note: He has shoulders, hips and shallow knee movement. Ben Yee (Transformers Prime Vehicon Toy Review | BWTF) completely neglects the knee articulation, for some reason. Take a look at Ben's post for pictures, he does a better job than I would.
