    This toy kinda sucks ... Prime looked nothing like that in 'entry mode' ... he would not have lasted on his way down. Scrawny arse!

    I wondered what the 'trans scanning' meant and, now that I see it, wish I did not research it further. Looks like a waste of money.

    I can totally see the "love it or hate it" nature of the toy. I love it!

    I don't want to say it looks awful.
    It looks good for what it is.

    I just don't see how they could make those Transcanning figures into anything other than the kibble fests they are.

    Well, I do think the "entry mode" looks bad.
    Interpretive dance = Entry Mode?

    Didn't Pascal used to be Megatroptimus here or am I imagining things?
    I recognize the singer from Live as his avatar.

    Wow. The only thing that looks o.k. is the truck. If it did not say Optimus Prime, nobody would buy that. But, that's only me. I hopw everyone that likes it, gets one!

    The proto form is great and I see can pose him in many ways which is real cool and his truck mode is awesome with the chrome....but his robot mode is meh to me I dont like the shoulder armor parts.

    But I may get it at a good fair price.

    I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw this. Really disappointed in this, I figured it was going to be oodles better than a truck shell with a pipe-cleaner bot.

    Holy kibble, Prime's backpack is HUGE. Not a big fan...

    well, you *could* remove the backpack, although you'd have to put it back to transform 'im. and of course, you'd be disarming him.

    TS Movie Ops would get along well with galaxy convoy in terms of armament. :)  paired, underslung BFGs YO~!

    Saw a review of this up on youtube a few weeks ago. Robot mode is horrible. But truck mode is awesome. That said, I still won't be picking this up.
