    great little figure and quite complex for a deluxe my only problem are some stess marks on the blue joints. and i noticed that the there are knee pads that fold out even though there down in all the pics and instructions, still dont know why the instructions arnt always correct.

    It's because they aren't meant to fold up as knee-pads in bot-mode. They're just there for alt-mode.

    When reading this first post, this was my thought process:

    "Cybertron Prime? He's not a deluxe..."

    "Oh, wait, maybe he means the Armada repaint..."

    "What kneepads?"

    "Ohhhh.... Generations Cybertronian Prime!"

    That is almost exactly what I thought reading that first post. "Why is he talking about a 5 year old toy?"

    Cybertronian Prime. Or at least WFC Prime.

    I went through the exact same thought process. Wish the OP actually clarified by calling it Cybertronian Prime or WFC Prime or even Generations Prime because Cybertron Prime is a different figure altogether.

    Wow, would be totally bodacious if I knew what figure you were talking about.

    Wait, the kneepads don't flip up in robot mode? I usually do that to match my Classics Prime!

    I think that's what's thrown a lot of people off. That and BayFormers Optimus has those high kneepads as well so some assume it's the done thing. I know I had the kneepads on WFC Prime up for a couple of weeks before deciding they made him look even shorter than he already is and flipped them down. Many people don't realise the exhaust pipes on his legs can be rotated for alt mode too so they look cleaner and plug better. Or that the feet can be pushed back on their ball-joints to better balance the figure when standing.
    I think a lot of what doesn't help is he's not fully in robot mode in the package so your starting point is already 'off' before you even begin. And then, of course, there's Hasbro's iffy instructions and sometimes differing pack photos. And seeing many photos online where people have made a choice of preference to how certain parts should go and it's confusing to anyone wanting to check online for how things should be.
