On the plus side, this gives you the option to shorten the neck so his head doesn't stick up so high.

Yeah I did rotate the feet, but I had them positioned slightly wrong. I examined the instructions again and got it to fit "better", but now it's hard to peg the two bottom halves together.


Oh, and here's some fun stuff I snapped pics of...

Well, It already looks shorter when I I hallowed the head's hole further in. At some point I had placed some super glue inside the hole (a month or so back) to make it fit better, but I guess it wasn't fully dry when I popped the head back on. When I tried to pose his head this time, the neck snapped. F! Well, at least I still have another head to get it fixed.

Since the trailer, reportedly, uses a 5 mm peg, Prime would need a 5 mm hole. If you can plug a weapon w/ a standard 5mm handle into where the Trailer would, then it should work.

TFao: The Rager figure with that trailer is pretty awesome! I'll have to keep that in mind....

Keith Prime: The Nemesis Prime figure doesn't have a hole in his 5th wheel to hold the trailer in place, plus it's pretty undersized, when compared to the Clasics Prime figure.


On a lark, I checked to see if he fit the Armada figure as well; but it isn't compatible either. The Armada Prime has a peg, as does the trailer... There's no 5th wheel at all on either components!

Yeah, I keep telling myself this. I'm sorta hoping it doesn't have the light-up stuff either, so they can sell it for less. In the meantime, maybe I'll convince myself to sell my Laser Prime so I don't have to be tempted down the road (speaking of which, there's only 4 battle tankers left).

Alternately, maybe this will encourage them to do sales on 3rd party items more often.

That would be why I said "Prime would need a 5 mm hole". I never saw a Classics Prime around here, & a lack of trailer put me off on him anyway.

Dinobots Rule asked it it'd work, & I explained what would be required, due to a lack of response from those who own one.
