    Huh. I had no idea Vangelus played Pokemon games. Neat (unless this is just a knicked Google pic.)

    Crack pot theory time: maybe the answer to the gimmick of power of the primes is pretty much your primes who are the base leader figure and everyone else is their armor. Apex/ God bomber could be the test for this ala generations wfc bruticus/ generations brainstorm for combiners/titan masters.

    Picture was indeed nabbed off google, I haven't played Pokemon since Blue

    I realized the day afterwards that I never actually talked about him :lol 

    Lovely figure full of ratchets where I didn't expect ratchets, gorilla mode is remarkably fun given how it doesn't really have knees

    Haha i was thinking that i accidentally skipped ahead or something, but good to hear you like him. I was hesitant about him as i have the 10th anniversary one but this blows that one out of water. So glad i got him on a 20% discount for black friday from my local collectible store :)

    Regarding Lord scorpion: Pelvis first! It's how you get laid.

    I wonder if the Prime gimmick is going to be armor-up, that would be fun and refreshing.

    Primo Vitalis is a pretty nice kit, but there's some things you may want to know about ahead of time. The backpack is super fiddly. Everything has to be exactly right to make it all sit tight in robot mode. You're going to want to watch some videos about how to position things correctly. Same goes for the truck transformation. It's very complicated, but once you figure it out, it's pretty easy to get the hang of. One last really important bit. You're going to want to clear coat the paint on the chest windows. It chips off super easy.

    Textured paint apps that mimics stickers is the sort of stupid unnecessary extra mile that I would totally pay collector premium for.

    Thanks for answering the question guys. My personal take on what we\'ve lost as the price of progress is that the more mainstream the brand becomes, the more pressured Hasbro is to market it to the wider market which is mainly movie-based fans and newer fans, much in the same vein as what TJ mentioned. The risks taken are kind of lessened. I mean, when was the last time we had a unique subline along the lines of Power Core Combiners which is are Transformers that transform, but does not oversimplify things or put an unrelated gimmick on it like Stealth Force.

    I personally liked things like HFTD and Human Alliance lines where we had off-point character choices and designs.
