    WFC Prime is a floppy mess? What kind of floppy? Like loose jointed floppy, or kibbly mess floppy? Or both?

    I need to know this, I was about to buy the figure. But I've been hearing alot of "Too Floppy" complaints about him, and I'm having second thoughts.

    And for those saying they can't find WFC toys, try checking Kohls. Every Kohls I've been to has a huge TF section, and it's the only place I've seen the generations toys at.

    Classics has a very anoying hand kibble that detracts a lot from the figure.

    WFC is awesome in it's own right. However, I'd have to give it to Classics Voyager. WFC needs to be at least Voyager to compete.

    Classics deluxe however... no contest WFC is better.

    Classics.
    WfC's alt mode is bland. Classics is a little on the bland side, but WfC really is bland to me.

    now, if they had made WW Prime instead, i'd be rooting for someone else.

    Deluxe or Voyager Prime? Hmmm...

    I voted for Classics Voyager Prime. That figure is still great on many levels.

    The WFC fig is good. An overly complex conversion and packed with great little details. The truck mode is different but a nice mix of Optimus and Rodimus Prime. As well as a sweet mix of Movieverse and War within, too!
    Bot mode is OK. Its almost perfect in a chunky kind of way...

    Anyway, I do like WFC Prime. But Bumblebee is the best WFC figure IMO. This Prime is just TO SMALL. A deluxe Prime is a waste.

    He is the Commander of the Autobots. And he's the same size as a Scout?

    I know Hasbro took a gamble. They wanted to cross sell the game with a figure. And the Deluxe class is the top selling TF.

    But to compare a Voyager with a deluxe?

    My vote is for Classics Prime... Henkia has the superior paint deco.

    Now with the new WFC Megatron? I may not even bother...

    I'd say it's a tough call.

    What's funny is how many people complained, literally, complained about how Classics Prime is such a shellformer, but a few years later he's considered an excellent figure. Amazing what third party armor will do.

    So yes, I vote for Classics Prime, but WFC is really the equal amount of awesomeness in my book. Both have the BEST headsculpts of Primes in that size class.

    I won't pretend it's widespread and couldn't just be mine, but every joint is loose. It can barely stand straight up let alone stand in any poses. Plus the midsection doesn't lock in place and wil unhinge if you even somuch as touch it. It's just a terrible design. And it has no real alt mode. People bitch about Movie Megatron not having an alt mode, but the WfC figs get praise for theirs. It's just stupid IMO. I've thought Classics Prime was rock solid since it was released. Only gripe I have with it is the arm kibble and it's really not all that intrustive.

    WFC Prime has a hell of an alt mode. just because you don't like it doesnt mean it's not there. some serious design went into it, and the transformation.

    if you have problems with him standing, push the feet back. it's a transformation step left out of the manual.

    Classics Prime. I was looking forward to WFC Prime, but upon seeing it in person I felt I had to pass. I didn't care for the look of the figure, and it's too small anyway.

    Henkei is the ultimate prime outside of MP-01.

    My WFC Prime doesn't have a single loose joint or any problems standing. He holds poses just fine and I really like him. Maybe there are some bum ones out there or something, but mine is great.

    Oh, voted for Classics Prime, by the by. I really like the WFC Prime, but it's nice to have a Prime that's bigger than his troops, like he should be.

    WFC. I've been able to mess with the figure, and he impressed me a lot. The Classics Prime is good too.

    I see alot of votes for classics based on size so which would be better if size wasn't the issue?

    WFC Prime is great, but even Classics Voyager Primes trumps it. If WFC Prime was Voyager class, I might see them as a tie. It isn't just the size, I also like the alt mode of Classics Prime a little bit more than WFC Prime. However, WFC Prime's alt mode is still very cool.

    If you compared WFC Prime with Classics Deluxe Prime and Animated Deluxe Prime, then it would be:

    1. WFC Prime
    2. Animated Cybertron Deluxe Prime
    3. Classics Deluxe Prime

    No way... Classics still takes the cake for me. Though I do like WFC Prime's retro/futuristic alt mode a lot.
