    my camera is wonkers...sorry for the fuzzy photos...he is a brown TF trimmed with silver and black apps....nice tight joints...the arms on the minicon pop off easily but go right back on...did not see this issue with alpha trion or the galaxy force version of vector prime so maybe mold degredation....

    cost $21 plus $22 shipping...still nice to get the guy early....
    his wings are cast in brown then painted black...WTF?
    The sword is painted silver and cast in black it appears....
    his missle fires with same amount of force as the other versions did.....

    Can we get pics of his robot mode without the Cyber Key?

    Gotta say, I love how the wings and front of the jet form a black cape in robot mode.

    Personally i think this is the best paint scheme so far of vector prime...color wise anyway....

    Alpha trion is pure win...this guy comes in second...the galaxy force version is next after this one...

    The original cybertron version i never liked...two white looking...hated him...

    ugh. Aw man I was really excited to see V.Prime was being offered again, but I can't get past the brown legs. They remind me of Dog-Piles holding up a TF.

    *sigh* Shame too he's such a cool mold. I love all the details carved into him. He's very, kind of Victorian looking to me. So unique. I just wish they'd used different colors.

    He's pretty cool. I'm going to paint those legs, deffinately. But better than the official pics made him look, but not as badass as the PS'ed pics. :( 

    I really just need a new VP, as mine is FUCKED UP.

    The black and silver look nice, but that's sure a lot of icky brown. It's way better than "Galaxy Force" Vector Prime but I probably will just stay with my original (Takara, not Hasbro, because the solar panel looking things look like crap without the paint around the edges).

    I'm getting this guy since he's one of the original 13 TF's and I missed him first go. I can see where people think his legs are the deal breaker, but there's a reason for his scheme I believe: He's Vector Prime in Last Autobot colors, all for $20 MRSP.

    Are the wings made out of soft rubbery plastic?

    It just occurred to me that one could take this scheme, add the right re-deco, and turn VP into a Shattered Glasss version of the Fallen!


    (As in, Vector Prime, as opposed to the yet-to-be-named Prime which became Fallen in other settings, was the one driven to the dark side - and who gave his name up to take on the Fallen moniker.)

    I've never been a fan of crap.

    Don't make me do the 'crap sniffing dogs' again, 'cause I just did it for the Patrol Bumblebee, and I'm living on borrowed time here.

    I have the Cybertron version, and unless they give it to me as AT for retail prices, no thanks.

    I really want a vector prime, but the brown is a turn-off. Not really into scat.

    Do you think I should repaint his brown gold, or charcoal?

    I actually love this Version even more than Galaxy Force Vector Prime. (I got rid of that version but kept the bad-ass transparent orange sword for my Cybertron Galvatron)

    Can we get some nice close-ups of just the Sword and Cyber Key please :D 

    plus a couple of just Safeguard in both his alt. and robot mode.

    And one more tad request of a close-up of Vector Prime's Face.

    Thanks in advance.
