    Hey everybody, here is my picture review of this latest product from TFClub.

    EDIT: Feb 22, 2011. GUNS! and more pics! See end of post. :D 

    TFC Primary School, PS-01 Primars

    [​IMG]

    Lets start with the vehicle mode. It's a neat little compact cute version of Movie Optimus Prime, with a paint scheme more resembling Prime from, TF Prime. Ok, just cause it has no flames. The vehicle mode holds together relatively well, although the rear end sometimes splits apart, and sometimes the rear wheel is lower to the ground than the middle wheel, causing that wheel to hover.

    All tires are made of rubber, a nice touch!
    In case you are wondering, it does roll. :highfive:

    [​IMG]

    Here he is in robot mode. A slightly more complex transformation than his cousin, Disney Label Optimouse Prime.

    [​IMG]

    Here he is, demonstrating his lightup gimmick. Just press a button on the top of your head, and horray! Lighty eyes! The last pic is over-exposed in the dark to show you that his chest kinda-sorta lights up as well. Like he has a tiny little Matrix in there! Nice effect.

    [​IMG]

    He also has a faceplate accessory, a nice addition to have that removable.

    Articulation, this bot has quite a bit of it! Head swivel, waist swivel, shoulder ball, elbow hinge, thigh ball, thigh swivel, ball jointed front part of foot. The only thing he's really missing is a knee.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    He has Movie Brand Arm Blades of Death! These little accessories just clip onto the back of his hand. I like this little addition. You can also store the blades on his back when not in use. These do not affect Transformation.

    [​IMG]

    He has universal peg holes for hands (and on the side of his head.. o_O ) for arming him to the teeth, like so! :D 

    [​IMG]

    Did I forget the articulated eyebrows? My favorite part of this bot! Here he is in "Somebody stole my Matrix :( " mode. My other pics had him in ANGRY FACE mode and "Meh, normal" face.

    Just move those little grey things on top of his head to move the eyebrows.

    [​IMG]

    Lastly, I leave you with a side profile show of him, to show where all the truck pieces go. It's a little holey back here, but it still does alright.

    All in all, this is a great toy! It completely lived up to my expectations of it.

    So, why not give little Primar a chance? Add this cute little jem to your collection! ... ...

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE!

    So... Some of you said 'I wish he had guns...' Well, I did too. Until I noticed something! His gas tanks come off, and his smoke stacks come off to form...

    [​IMG]
    Awesomeness!
    Ok, it isn't the greatest set of guns ever, and they kinda don't like to sit in his hands... But they work :p 

    What else can you do with these guns? Anything you want to! Such as...

    [​IMG]
    No comment >.>

    SIZE COMPARISON TIME! My battery died after two pics, so... I hope you all have a Breacher :) 

    [​IMG]

    Also, Kamen Rider OOO meets Primar. "WTF IS THAT!?"

    [​IMG]

    Done for now :D

    Win. Mine is currently in the mail. A little disappointed to hear about the lack of knee joints but considering his stature it's certainly not a deal breaker and the rubber tires are a nice unexpected treat.

    Nice pictures! Now I am really tempted to order one. Would it be possible to post some pictures of it next to some other figures for size comparison? Thanks!

    I knew there was something I was missing! I will take some comparison shots when I get home. I am out for the whole day today though..

    To give you guys reference, he's about as tall as an average Scout, but heavier/bulkier (due to the head XD)

    Having the electronics and rubber tires really make the price seem a bit more realistic.

    looks great, love sd stuff and I really dig the moving eyebrows. Disappointed in the lack of knees and that side view though.

    I'd love to get one, but I'm not willing to drop fifty buck on it.

    The eyebrows were the entire selling point to me for this release. At first i wasn't going to buy it, even though I did like what I saw. At first I was just thinking they were trying to copy the concept of Disney Label, and removing the Disney part. However, the little things they added along the way really helped this figure overall. I do not feel ripped off for what I paid.

    It may look very thin in the waist, which I believe is the area of concern you are talking about, but trust me when I say, this toy is very sturdy! The plastic they used is very solid.

    I have accidentally dropped this guy a few times, he isn't brittle at all, and holds together in Robot mode very well. Parts don't all lock into place in Vehicle mode, but really, most of you will have him in Robot mode for most of the time, unless you are showing it off to somebody :p
