    That's pretty clever how you can turn it around, and it's a completely different diorama with the vehicle mode. Probably the closest you can get to making one of those statues transform.

    Someone needs to photoshop a guitar in Prime's hands though :)

    Hm, not bad. Might get one for my collection, it looks pretty cool. I can't see myself paying out a lot for it though.

    AWESOME! I really liked the Star Wars Unleashed statues, this looks even cooler. I'll definitely get one one of these. :thumb

    While Im not down on the whole non-transforming transformer merchandise. Optimus and Megatron are the only 2 characters I break that rule for (Thx to Revoltech). I really dig the 2 sides to it.

    I wish he was more like the bumblebee unleashed where it was just a stand alone figure, but he's not bad at all.

    Blegh. These things seriously lack the paint of the Star Wars ones. :(

    I think it woulda looked a lot better if Prime had more of that 'cg grit' look to him. As is he's too clean and shiney. Still might nab this if the price is right though.

    Meh, this is an easy pass for me. Clever idea, but just isn't something I'd purchase. In fact, I'm still waiting for *anything* movie related that I want to buy. Save for maybe getting the Leader Class figures of Prime & Megs for the sole sake of having other renditions of them, not one single thing has jumped out at me other than the movie posters & video game. It's disappointing since I *want* to like the movie stuff, but none of it's grabbing me and I can't just convince myself to like something that I don't. I guess I still have a bigger problem with the designs than I originally thought.

    I don't know. It looks kinda cool, but a bit bland at the same time. I think the Bumblebee one looks better.
