    Haven't taken any pics in a while and decided to be "creative" with my display. Had a nice effect, to bad the camera sucks. Anyway, my little guys from today.

    Prime is awesome and Megs is okay. However Megs has absolutely no posability. The major malfunction is the miking of plastic and diecast. The joins are all plastic but the solid parts are diecast. This makes everything floppy. Prime's arms click into place but can fall out easily because the plastic simply can't hold the weight. But both are still nice.

    And the best touch of all is Megatron's bio mentioning how he is currently captured by the power of the Matrix and being under the control of Cobra Commander.

    I have been looking high and low for the larger titaniums, but have only seen the small ones.

    :lol 

    Prime looks good even though he doesn't look too posable. Megatron looks pretty terrible though.

    saw these at TRU this past friday. I'll waiting until my target gets them in so I can use my employee discount.

    All targets should have these in stock by the 30th of july. Most should get them in a little before to ensure they're in stock for the 7/30 toy transition.(7/30 is the beginning of the week when most stores are doing the transition, don't expect every target to have their entire toy section changed over on the 30th.)

    Prime is actually pretty good. He has knee, thigh, some waist, elbow, shoulder, and head articulation. The only ball joints however are in the thighs.

    Prime's actually very reasonably posable: swivel neck, swivel shoulders, bicep swivel, hinge elbows, ball joint hips (though somewhat limited by the "skirt" bits), thigh swivel, hinge knees, and pointable toes and heels.

    I worry about the torso transformation joint, though. That big chunk of metal rotating and sliding STIFFLY on that plastic peg just seems to be a break waiting to happen. I also wish his gun was easier to get in and out of his hand -- I'm afraid I'm going to twist the handle right off.

    Then there's Megatron. I like his looks a lot, but he flops like a marionette. The mold should've been used in an all-plastic line.
