Wish the green version had a unique head mold
We dont need more primes
@ChromeMagnus It feels rock solid. The plastic feels very durable. My only previous experience with TFC was their Sixgun. It's like night and day.
Damn, I just bought the regular version off of eBay today. I'm a sucker for anything camo though.....
That looks lovely....
How solid is that ab crunch? That was the one thing that looked problematic to me as it doesn't seem to be ratcheted.
But the entire purpose of this design was a camo GI JOE Optimus Prime. Maybe it should include an extra head but definitely still needs the optimus head.
That's good to know. I was underwhelmed with TFC Hercules (MP sized Devastator/Constructicons) and haven't bought any of their figures since. I just might have to pull the trigger here with TFC Rolling Thunder Optimus. I'll need to pick up some Dia nauts and some Titan Master figures for cheap to further accessorize the alt mode.
You can also use Spike or the other G1 MP humans.
The camo looks great! Though, if you look really close at the upper left corner of the chest, is that red underneath? Like they painted over the 'Prime' colored version for those pics? Not that it matters - it looks good! I'd really like to see this mold in Ultra Magnus and Nemesis colors. The irony being that I'd have to buy a color scheme that is second choice to me to support them to get the repaints. It's almost worth it...
Either way, this looks great all around!
I'm glad to hear people are enjoying this guy. I'm skipping the red/blue version, but if the quality is good (as it sounds like it is) I'm in for the green one.
I observed the same thing and I think it's a paint guide/master that TFC has sent the factory. Looks like they just painted over a copy of the normal production version.
Holds a pose like a champ.
Hmmm, I'd dismissed this due to traditionally not being big on TFC and the price, but I shall admit he looks pretty epic. Very tempted!
C'mon lotto....make it rain so I can buy both versions of this guy...
I'm usually a pretty big Prime fan but I'm waiting for the camo colours, it just doesn't look right in primary colours.
It's a friction joint, right? Is there a locking point for the ab crunch or not?!
I originally planned to hold out for a hopeful Nemesis repaint but I may have to get this in OP colors as well.
Yes, friction joint, but it's toleranced very well. There's no floppiness or looseness.
Gotta be honest... this is the first 3rd party release I've been pumped for in a couple years. I sold off my collection a couple years back due to hardship & all I've seemed to buy lately are figures I used to have... other than FP's Dia Z & a KO of MP Shockwave (both of which are amazing). I always wanted Xovergen's Grand Patriot... so I'm pretty thrilled about this. I was a little sore at the price at first, but seeing the size, diecast & poseablility has loosened up my wallet a bit. Too bad TFC's Poseidon is so expensive... it's the only other TFC product that has peaked my interest. Hope TFC does more like this.
What little Titan Masters "Headmasters" figures do you guys recommend to go with this figure? I haven't been really keeping up with Titans Return line so I don't know what's what. Also what online sellers, foreign or domestic, have the best deals on Titan Masters?
