    Seriously, I was going to pass on this guy (I had picked up the Megatron, he's pretty nice) when I came across a lone one for 20% off. I mainly got him because I really wanted the Axalon, but I was suprised at how freaking awesome he is. He seemed really medicore judging from the pictures online but wow he's great. Already he's shot up there to rank as one of the better TF's I've had. I love the surfboard bazooka. Such a great weapon. Plus his transformation is really neato.

    So, was anyone else as suprised as I was that this guy is so mega-hyper-cool?

    No, not really. Part of the reason for that is the only time I've ever seen him I passed because I had no cash. The only thing I didn't like about him from pictures are the colors.

    I already thought he was great before I bought him. Though I do wish he had a pair of swords and a way to peg him to the surfboard in robot mode.

    I really like him. I personally prefer the Cyb. paintscheme better (no tiara and bad-ass scar FTW), but I really wish he could hold the surfboard in his hands in a less ackward way. Or else give him some swords or something.

    I have been eyeing the toy ever since it came out but unfortunately I had other stuff to buy. The beast mode looks pretty funky IMO.

    i personally really dig him...not so much as a BW 10th toy, but as a cybertron version. which makes me really want the cybertron version...both toys are great fun, just dont fit well with the BW era....but once i find the cybertron versions and rename them (apelinq and magmatron) they will look great with my cybertron display...now i just gotta figure out where the actual 10th anniversary colored versions will fit in....

    Maybe the only thing that bugs with BWX Primal is the plastic quality. Somehow, it doesn't feel like a BW toy nor a Cybertron toy. It's totally different.

    I really like him. I originally passed on him due to the ugly gorilla, but the robot mode (and Axalon) finally convinced me to pick him up. Nice figure, great face sculpt.

    I put the surfboard bazooka on his shoulder when he's firing... looks great and not at all awkward.

    I picked him up a while ago and was pleasantly surprised with him as well. He is pretty cool! His transformation is simple, yet satisfying. I prefer the beast wars colors over the cybertron colors for both him and megatron, Plus i wanted the mini ships.

    I like the Cybertron Paint scheme on BWX Megatron better than his BWX version, for the sole reason, it is what would happen if Armada Predacon went Techno-organic.
    (Surely Im not the only one who noticed that they share more or less the exact same paint-job)

    I haven't bought this figure yet, but the main thing that's seducing me to get one is the headsculpt. I've really noticed in recent years how a good head sculpt can make or break a borderline figure (Energon Swoop comes to mind)... and as much as I've never cared for the munkyprime, I do like the face design.

    I also actually prefer the Cybertron edition colours... it's really pretty rare to see a brown transformer, but it looks kind of good. Even the Megatron... there's something about that unusual eggplant colour that calls to me. Also, I do love the T-Rex mode.

    Excellent figure. I need to find some swords. A small flair and some sholder cannons would be nice too.

    Couple of Candidates:-
    1. GF Sonic Bomber/Cyb Wing Saber
    2. BW Primal/Universe Primal
    3. RM Beast Convoy.

    That, or Perhaps swords from one of the BW Primal mini-KO's?

    You mean the original Primal's swords? Not a chance. Not only will the thumbs not give enough clearance, but the pegs are also not the same size. You might have better luck getting him to grip RM Primal's blades, but again, the pegs aren't compatible.

    I like having him hold it under his arm, like he is using his whole body to brace it:
