    I think mine is great. I even have an A-Team van that fits into the trailer perfectly :)

    Definitely. I've got the black version, which I picked up from Onesock. It's a fantastic toy.

    Yes, he is amazing for his size. Very much like a Mini Masterpiece Prime.

    He's fantastic. The only downside is Prime's truck cab mode doesn't look too good, but everything else more than makes up for it.

    the truck mode looks alright; and is a pain in the ass to transform lol BUT it is an amazing figure in robot form. highly recommended. if you want it; get it now before bbts puts the price back up to $90 :lol

    YES. When these 1st came out a few years ago they were under produced. BBTS and TFsource didn't receive all their orders and some people had their orders canceled. At the time they were selling for double what was initially paid. $70 is a good deal.

    Easily. He's a fantastic toy. As has been said the truck mode is a tad iffy, but the robot mode is pure love. Add in a very nicely detailed trailer, several pairs of hands, a JETPACK (!), Roller with 4 wheel steering, a rifle that can be fitted TO that Roller, and a display stand, and you have a superb set that is WELL worth the money.

    Cool, I just sent an inquiry to RobotKingdom to see if I can place an order for one and have it shipped along with my MP-01B order when it comes in.

    Interesting, I never cared for mine... I'll have to pull them out and give them another chance based on these rave reviews.

    I never liked the figure. As a 4 inch super poseable Prime he is cool, but as a transformer he kind of sucks. The truck mode is really horrible, which is a shame because the trailer is actually one of the best Prime trailers ever. Maybe my fingers are too big but I just didn't like the little guy and sold him after having him for a couple of years.

    Hmm...I've been on the fence abt this release as well, might have to reconsider now after reading all this positive 2nd opinions/reviews here. thanks guys!

    Actually I'm more keen on the THS-01 Galaxy Convoy. it's somewhat more "elusive" than the THS-02, most of the prices that you'll see for it on evilbay is rather on the exorbitant & obscene side. I wonder why Taktomy won't reissue it again... :(

    As other have said, for a figure of its size, they crammed in an awful lot of articulation and accessories. The thing simply reeks of attention-to-detail. The trailer and Roller in particular are probably the best that Has/Tak has ever done.

    On the other hand, the vehicle mode is compromised, even worse than the deluxe two-pack Optimus Prime in my opinion. Its size and complexity make for a delicate figure that does not leave much room for play value.

    Ultimately for me, as nice as the accessories and presentation are, the main item (the Prime figure itself) is lacking. If I didn't have the figure already, I would not buy it again. It's neat, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly.
