    The plane bits are not removable but the wings are highly posable, so there is almost certainly a configuration that can sweep them out of the way enough to satisfy without actually detaching. The nosecone hides in the legs, so it's never necessary to take them off: doing so would cause his legs to become even more hollow. I really like the mold, especially when you fan-mode up the plane, as it is his weakest form in the standard configuration. The retail one has really bad paint and my copy has loose hips, but that's what I get for buying him weeks before mass release at a Florida comic shop. It's a really neat toy.

    Wings can be folded to sorta form a sword holder , also gives full clearance if you place the shoulder bits down. IMG_7807.JPG IMG_1111.JPG IMG_2078.JPG

    Thanks for the reply. Any legends figure is fine, which means laser prime will be too big.

    Hmm it's as I feared... :p  back to the drawing board I guess. Maybe I can redeco an armada supercon prime. I think he was quite short...

    Oooo so many! Thanks for all the pictures. Didn't even know it has so many reprints already!

    Laser prime looks so crap next to black convoy

    I still can't decide if I should get him for fun. I love the deco but he's so many things I don't like. A triple changing headmaster! Also I don't love the changes to the gun for headmaster seating or the little peg on the side of the sword. But it's laser prime!

    Black convoy has the Takara touch .. so can't really be fair to compare them . Also paint chip on blackconvoy. I prefer burning forest out of the lot. And you can also convert them into a gun* someone did it with black convoy for bruticus so technically with the additional base mode introduced in blackconvoy , it's more of a quintuple changer or quadruple changer if you don't count the fan mode in . But it's a fun toy in hand , and anyone with a g2 optimus preference should enjoy it I figure.

    Rule of thumb on these forums is that everyone who isn't you has Black Convoy. Except me. I'm not you and I lack him as well.

    I wonder if anyone did a custom like this? Powerlix prime definitely has a g2 vibe with the Combat Prime colours. But laser is the best

    Just came across this today in a store. A small fortune later, Pow! I've also bought laser prime for good measure.

    So in the Drift miniseries Deadlock hangs out with loads of g2 characters. Does that mean he's basically written as a G2 character?

    Not really. Deadlock was first introduced as an IDW G1 character. G2 characters are only new characters introduced in the G2 toyline and comic.

    I think TR Voyager prime Scales perfectly with the TR Legends I have like Bee, Road burn and Brawn especially in Alt modes.

    Thanks shop much for the opinions guys. I think he might be one of my favourites. I even prefer the laser deco over black convoy.

    I took the plane bits out (apart from the nose) and he's pretty sweet. I haven't tried Base mode yet but the jet kibble goes back in easily so no problem reattaching. The only issue is theta big hole it leaves in truck mode. But I can live with it.

    The stickers are crappie. I'm thinking that when they peel off there's a good chance he'll look even better. Anyway, I love him more than rts laser prime. He has a great chunky feel.

    Now I just need a good tank megatron
