    been considering getting the guy, though i do have one problem. i got the 25th Anniversary Prime recently, and SURPRISE! his hands and gun dont store on the main truck, but in his trailer (im 17, didnt know it would be like that).

    my question is, do all of his accessories, like his hands and the chrome bits, store in truck mode, or do i need to set some stuff aside? hiding the parts in the back of the truck count as stored.

    No. You have to keep all 4 of his missiles, his fists, and his antenna thing seperate. The back of his truck mode is where his head goes. But as far as parts go, Trailbreaker and Hoist are about the worst. Coming second behind Ultra Magnus and Hound.

    the only "storage" area on this figure is the tiny compartment on top for a diaclone driver.

    While the jets have more than few parts. You only really need to remove 2 to transform them. The rear stabilizers. And add fists.

    at least on the seekers (g1 anyhoo) you could store the front landing gear in the cockpit.

    but as far as i know, keep a ziploc handy for your Trailbreaker's parts.

    It's small consolation, but you can put Primes fists in his cab/chest when in truck mode.

    And when it comes to G1, you need a baggie of some sort for all the weapons, hands etc... they hadn't developed the tech of everything being a part of the main toy at that point.

    umm i think the worst would be omega supreme, metroplex, and fortress maximus, *why fortmax? cuz if you lose a part... lol chances are you will have to PAY up at least $50, to replace it! :lol !

    but yea those are the worst for parts, but at least with trail/hoist, if all you have is the body, you still have a "transformer" just one with out any hands.

    same with ultra magnus and hound, at least you have a full robot.

    but with out omega's parts... all you got is a tank lol... and fortmax, with out his parts, well, like all the headmasters, he'd be very, very, headless... lol

    and it is not exactly cheap to replace that head... little alone the head TO that head lol...

    so lets say i were to lose every extra part-hed still be a decent toy? cause with Prime, half the time i transform him and ignore the lack of hands-though i may try that Jametron


    so he's still worth getting, right?
