    Hey folks, just recently won a THS-01 on Ebay last night for $34.32. So I ask, to those who own one:

    Did I get it for a good price and what are your impressions of it?

    My Impression (And this is a good one), He's a Matchbox car version of Galxay Convoy.

    Price sound alright too. He seems harder to find than THS-02.

    Very good price. I like the figure although the leg cannons are a bit loose fitting in super mode. Also, the big cannons don't point forward in "jet mode". Can be fixed, but I never tried to.

    Is there any fan-guide to repairing this cannon issue? I searched the boards, but there's no link to it anymore.

    The figure is awesome. Very possible and very solid. I bought mine for $40 shipped used and I thought that was a fantastic deal.

    I was more then happy to buy mine at an import shop for $35. It's a great figure, and I don't know why it's so overshadowed by THS-02, but you got it for a good price.

    Probably because, despite being a good figure, he really brings nothing new to the table. He's almost identical to Galaxy Convoy, just smaller, and with metal. Meanwhile, THS-02 is a wholly new figure, with all sorts of new tricks and ideas to impress.

    Well, I will find out soon, I just ordered THS-02 yesterday. You may be right, but if I were to guess I would say because it's a great take on the much beloved G1 Prime.

    I got a THS-02 yesterday. Pretty cool. Not a big fan of the vehicle mode, but the robot mode is really cool. Didn't have a lot of chance to play with it, but I noticed he needs to be Transformed gently. His "spine" is plastic, he's got a lot of metal on him too.

    I'm also getting a THS-01 soon too, so I look forward to the fun of that.

    Yeah that's a pretty good price. I love the whole packaging of the THS figures, great setup in the box.

    Sweet deal. Paid over 50 for mine when it came out but never regretted.
    Buying it for 35 or less would've been awesome.


    Here he is with the big guy

    I love my 01, but 02 just didn't look appealing to me. 01 was a blast though, and 35 is definately a good deal.

    Just found the little guy on my doorstep today. Awesome little thing.

    My only complaints are the spring loaded cannons just can't compare to the original rachet jointed ones. And my absolute biggest complaint keeping me from thinking this is above the original is the super mode gun-leg attachment won't stay on at all. Just so annoying when I try to display it and they keep falling off. Any fixes for this?

    On the bright side though, he can hold Vector Prime's sword and look like he did in Ep. 51, which is just every kind of awesome.

    Paid full price for mine when he came out, but no regrets!
