Huh. This figure brings me back to my childhood. He's not great, but the nostalgia factor is through the roof.


Check out my toy designs here!

See those parts where it can actually be posed? Won't get that with PR.

I love this figure. Not really hollow, plastic quality is great, good articulation. He's also big. Like, much bigger than I expected him to be. Dragon mode's really nice too, and I love how the tail fits perfectly over his right hand in robot mode. It makes a much better weapon than I thought it would. My only complaint is that he can't hold his blaster normally in robot mode (Due to the length of the missile), but it looks so good on his back that it doesn't really matter. He also looks awesome with Thundertron. Highly recommended.

Like this guy more than I was expecting but mine has two left ear pieces, which kinda sucks. Oh and I'm having trouble transforming him into beast mode; the yellow piece with the ears just doesn't seem to want to stay pegged into the dragon head.

I ended up just shaving the tabs off. Trying to push them into the head just stressed mine as they started to go in. The head has enough friction to stay up bt itself.

He is MUCH better than I was expecting. Transformation isn't nearly as simple as I thought it would be, and he just looks burly and powerful in both modes.

I really like the look of this guy and I really want a complete Prime collection, with every character released that's introduced into the fiction.

The thing is, however, my space is running desperately thin, to the point where I'm considering skipping all the Predacons simply to save space. So now I cna't decide: open him, or shove him back on ebay?

Does anyone still have their packaging?

I'd like to see a shot of his "animation model" if he has one.

Surprisingly impressed with the figure. I can see a lot of nostalgia factor in him, for Beast-era fans as well as G1 fans who enjoyed the late-era toys. He's a funky little figure, and I love his stockiness - it almost implies him to be huge in the canon. He's got some wrinkles (the beast head being the biggest issue), but overall a very welcome addition to my crew.
