Alright, just picked up Transformers Titanium - War Within Optimus Prime. (Along with Megatron, who we will pretend doesn't exist for the time being) First of all, let me first start off by saying I am a huge fan of the War Within storyline, and the accompanying designs by Don Figueroa. This design is wonderfully brought to life based on his art, and the best part is that it is fully transformable. Let's also start off by saying that it is the die-cast that kills the character. I would honestly love to see this mold brought to life in beautiful plastic! Getting them out of their plastic cntainer is indeed a bitch. Invest in a pair of wire cutting pliers. Once out, you'll find that the base is made of two pieces. The actual base, and the autobot symbol/name tag. The Titanium figures will most likely also come out in multiple pieces. I pulled the torso out, followd by the arms, and then the legs...since they are so easily pulled apart. Here's what you are gonna end up with: Everything except the head, tires, hands, upper arms/joints, upper legs/joints, and feet are die-cast metal. He is very heavy. No the tires are not made of rubber, for all of you that have been asking. The shoulder pads can be left in two different styles. You can turn the shoulder pads to thesides...and the arms are slightly more poseable (and instruction-correct) The other way, pictured here, leaves the yellow orbs facing forward, and although it looks cool, it restricts some elbow movement. The gun has a true handle, complete wit trigger. its best to face the gun outward with the trigger facing Prime's hand and then turning the gun to face correctly. Otherwise it can be a real pain to get the gun in his hand. Speaking of the gun, you can check out Don Figueroa's name tag on the gun: Transformation to alternate mode is fairly easy, and can be done quickly. The head folds down, chest folds upwards, the waist turns, the arms are turned inside out, and faced backward, and the legs are pushed in. The feet fold together on each leg, and the hands get pushed in. The gun can get stored in alternate mode facing backwards...it just slides into a groove in the back of...well...Prime's back. Here's a size comparison with THS-02 Convoy...who I thought was pretty heavy for his size...until I met WW Prime. and here's a size comparison with Alternators Prime: Overall, I can recommend Prime, a pair of wire cutters, and some clear nail polis to tighten up the joints. He's the only Titanium figure thats worth your money so far. He's not the best as far as poseability, but he's great for display with any Prime collection.
