    Theres a few of the hybrid figures on ebay for around £30 at the moment, is he worth it to buy?
    Any major faults on the figure, he's tiny so any issues with that?

    I think he's awesome...the alt mode SUCKS, but this guy is super poseable, great articulation, accessories, etc. REDLINE has some sweet pics of him. He'll also probably tell you how great he is. no regrets on him for me, for sure, 'cept he could be a tad bigger.

    He's a really fun little toy. If you like small, intricate figures with lots of inherent display value, then he'll be right up your alley.

    He's a little on the expensive side, considering his size, but in person, he's quite an impressive piece of work, and once I found how cool he was, any qualms about the price tag pretty much washed away.

    Yeah, his vehicle mode isn't the greatest, but it's actually better in person than it is in the online pics. Pretty much because all those hi-res photos blow the little flaws out of proportion. His small size compared to his complex transformation allows you to appreciate how tricky it would have been to make him look absolutely perfect.

    And it's a major bonus for me that he has part storage for absolutely everything short of his bio card. Even his display stand "transforms" into a free standing Autobot sigil, to display behind his truck mode or something. With all those extra hands and junk, I'd hate to lose them. And luckily, they store snug and secure (to the point where you might need to get a small screwdriver to pry them loose, actually, unless you've got dexterous fingers).

    he sucks

    For me, I can't stand this toy... if you're just posing him, he's awesome.
    If you actually want to play with him, and not have pieces fall off, or pop out, your out of luck.
    cheers!

    I agree with zuffy. I was more impressed with the THS 01 galaxy convoy figure.

    he is amazing. get him. the trailer is a work of art, and unlike what a lot of people are saying, the cab in vehicle mode isn't THAT bad. it's just something that takes a lot of fiddling with to get JUST right, kind of like how alternators look like crap until you get all of their body panels just right. once you do, the vehicle mode is livable, but there's just so much you can do with the trailer, and the robot mode is really cool. those are the two things that sold it for me.

    Nice little piece for display on your desk. You can pose him any way when you feel like bit of fiddling :) 
    Not so much fun to transform due to the size, but I let my son play with him and no piece pops off except for the arm covers.

    He's an amazing toy. I still don't know what people say about parts falling off. The only things that ever come off on mine are just the parts on the wrist, but they pop back on.

    I like the toy as a whole dispite the fact that my hands are entirely too big to transform him.

    I didn't care for it personally, but I generally don't care for things that are unusually intricate for their size. To me it feels more like a lump of robotic clay that you mush into robot or truck shapes than a good Transformer. The trailer and roller seem more interesting than Prime himself.

    Depends on if you like G1 really. He can be a loose and fiddle little guy with tiny parts to drive you crazy, but on a G1 note I f&cking love the little thing.
    You'll really love the trailer, feels like the perfect upgrade to the original only smaller.

    First time you see the ramp pop out you'll be all "teehee"
