    There have been several Transformers vs GI Joe crossovers, but this is a standalone design iwth no story attached to it.

    Every time I try and quit third party toys, something always brings me back in. I need to find a way to make this fit into my collection. Hopefully if they ever do a UM repaint, they will offer an Animated-inspired head to go with it.

    Was not expecting to have a Prime collection, but if I add this and Galaxy Manus the number of leader-person transforming truck robots in my lineup will qualify it as such.

    I hope they work on the rifle a little more. It just looks woefully undersized, especially the grip. If it needs to attach to the tiny Roller, they should just do one of those flip out pegs. I like the hands, though. Pinned fingers with only balls on the knuckles once they reach a certain size is the best way to go.

    Looks awesome. Definitely going to keep my eye on this guy. I've never read any of the cross over stuff but I always thought the idea of Joe and Transformers working together made a lot of sense.

    Did TFC give any kind of ETA for a release time?

    Has there been a picture of the base vehicle without the missiles and stuff yet?
    Might give us a good idea of who it could be reworked into.

    The vehicle mode alone is super interesting. If I've gotten through a lot of my list (I didn't start my third party tf stuff until this year and BOY DO I HAVE SOME STUFF TO GET THROUGH XD) I might get this and call him Sgt. Prime, more appealing than the botcon green deco Prime

    Oh TFC, you occasionally make some really nice looking products but they always suffer some TFC quirks or QC issues. Please don't disappoint us again with this one. This is kind of a cool one-off bot that looks articulated and appealing enough to go on my shelf, provided the colors look nice and it doesn't crumble in-hand or something.

    This has got to be the coolest crossover. Like others have said, I would also love one large enough to serve as a transforming GI Joe playset.

    Between Transformers AND Gi Joe fans, hopefully this sells well enough so more will be made.

    I'm thinking that green will be the color I pick.


    I need a green Prime on my shelf. :lol
