Dark Guard FE Optimus Prime






Picked this guy up from robot kingdom.

retains everything i loved about the FE Prime mold and slaps some black and gold paint on there.

the legs have a brownish hue that looks really good in person and adds a bit of variety to the colour scheme.

had to do the head adjustment that is mandatory on this mold.

guess my only complaint is that the sword is still a bendy piece of trash.

What head adjustment? I got a pair of FE Primes coming from BBTS, and I've never owned this mold.

The neck ball joint isn't inserted into the head all the way. So you take the head apart, put the neck ball joint into the socket, then screw the head halves back together.

Goodness that colors are SHARP! Tempted to order this instead of the regular FE Optimus or might just get both. I like the mold a lot, I have the Shining Ver.

Not used to seeing a black prime without red or teal, this is not bad.

This looks seriously cool by any standard. What a cool robot.

I read a review somewhere that said the back kibble on this mold was bad, is that true?
