    I'm starting to feel a little optimistic, and this is a little more on my radar now. It looks a *lot* better in this video than it did in previous pics, and if the positive reviews continue, I'll probably bite. You compared the plastic quality to Fans Project City Commander. Any other third party figure you can compare the plastic quality to? That's my biggest concern with this piece. Grand Patriot looked(and sounded if you listened to the joints being tested in a video review) like cheap quality.

    Is there nothing that can be done with the blue base plate in bot mode?

    And is it just me, or does G1 Prime look the best in the chest? I also like that you can display it stand alone without a cab Prime in the chest, but I don't much care for that trailer hitch being so prominent.

    great review. The shoulder joint connectors are the biggest weakness of the figure IMO

    I know what u mean about the blue section, would be nice if it could clip on the back even if only to cover the classic Henkei legs , other 3rd products hmm , well it feels a thicker plastic than hegemon and a lot less fragile.. Honestly feels IMO spot on to protector armour which is a little thicker than the commander

    So I made a 35 minute video.. it's not perfect but I go into as much detail as I can. I think this will be a gotta have or a can't stand it.

    I know I am looking forward to the GOD BOMBER ARMOR upgrade

    Very cool, it's much appreciated. Did you get it from Robot Kingdom? I almost pulled the trigger there but found it cheaper at Chimungmung.

    Very nice and in depth review. Not interested in this guy, but your review makes it very tempting.

    Great review. This figure isn't too bad. I don't think I will buy it but I might buy one in black...

    really enjoyed your video review man. glad you were able to discuss the plastic quality and QC while still keeping it objective, so I think you hit your goal.

    I really like this set, but I think a $150 entry point is still too high for me. It looks like a treat for PM prime fans though. I'm wanting to see what they do with the god bomber/apex armor now.

    FUUUUUUCK. I don't want to want this, too much on the horizon. I'm justifying everything as a graduation present for this May, lol. Thanks for the great review.

    Well, I can clearly see that the Xovergen peeps learned their lesson from the Patriot fails, so...good for them. I'm really impressed.

    As for the product itself, not impressed. I see what they were going for, and I can understand how many would find this enjoyable, I really do. It's just not for me.

    Especially at that price. Yikes.

    It looks really nice. However, the thing that bothers me is that the balljoint on the head is too high, making the head look like is sits on a stick. Also, the same effect is happening with the arms. I might be able to ignore the arm issue but the head on a stick effect is a little much. Is there any way to lower the head?
