    nice, large and very beefy. i like this guy a lot! everything is pretty much on par with what came from the PRID commander with obvious cosmetic changes. the chest and leg transformation now have an extra flip step to them...but otherwise "same figure different look" my only minor complaint here is the head. it is just a flap that folds from the back of the cab and lacks any movement at all.
    he also comes with a push missile and launcher and a itty bitty starsaber, which i unfortunately have misplaced already to provide pictures :rolleyes:  the push missile launcher is pretty underwhelming and barley works...the only thing its good at it hurting your finger from trying to push something with such a small end with enough force to make the missile actually fly :thumbdown

    a much better (in my opinion) looking version of the truck then the voyager. here it looks like a armored battle vehicle and not a compact garbage truck. the ONLY complaint i have here is the front cab does not tab or lock into place, it simply rests on two pegs and thats is all. any movement of the cab of the truck downwards and it easily comes "untabbed" and needs to be reset.

    Definitely looks pretty cool-- I'll certainly try to pick one up. Though I still absolutely do not think the vehicle mode looks better than the larger one. Different, yes. Better, no. The bumpy cab roof and bracing...whatevers on the truck bed are a bit of a turnoff. Otherwise, the colours and articulation seem to make for a pretty satisfying figure as far as Cyberverse goes.

    the cab is flimsy in vehicle mode agreed.

    the biggest complaint i really had in robot mode, other then the flap head, is that the inner arm kibble is a little restrictive.

    No head movement? thats a huge disappointment. Still going to get him as he looks pretty fun otherwise, but lacking the head articulation is usually a dealbreaker for me

    The Cyberverse figure looks closer to the voyager CG box art that the voyager does. I liked how the voyager box art has the legs being mainly wheels, suggesting that the new vehicle mode would be a heavy duty 10+ wheeler.

    Question, the DOTM Cyberverse Prime jetpack could fit on the back of the PRID Cyberverse Prime, any weapons storage or connectors on the back of BH Cyberverse Prime?

    yah, ive pretty much accepted this after having the PRID cyberverse for so long. it has the same issue with the kibble on the arms.

    the head (really its positioning more-so then anything) is really the overall biggest blemish of the entire figure. it sits a little too far back of the chest and really is just a flap with a face on it. it looks fine from the front or sides, but looking at it from the top of back you can really see just how far back the head sits.

    no obvious holes for anything to attach on the back of him at all. the back is mostly flat and very boring looking.

    Any chance of a side by side next to Cyberverse Predaking?

    Looking forward to getting him, but he will be the truck version of Optimus Primal. I can't replace my Nightwatch Mold at this point.

    It's not bad, but I think the prid commander shots all over this one, from the pics I see here. I think the prid commander is really kick ass, and they would have had to do something magnificent to beat it...this is not it.

    Even though you don't like the missile launcher, can we see a pic of it?

    I think its safe to say that this prime, overall will not have any sort of "trailer", unless this is the clean mode, and the voyager is the version with something on back.

    Not bad...not as good as prid one.

    Okay, I personally find this more appealing than the previous PRiD figure. Although I do like that figure, I'm finding this one to be more appealing. I like the chunkyness, and appreciate the improvements from the first Prime (lower legs, floaty shoulders, non-tabbing waist). I may even make this one my Cyberverse go-to as my Optimus for the shelf.

    Not bad, but it looks like he has his pants pulled up too high.

    Holy shit, actual painted rims?! It's a motherfucking miracle!

    Almost makes up for those ugly clip-on wheels. Almost.
