Huh... I think I'm in for this for the hands... Mixed feelings about most the rest of it. No toes...
God I hope so, I skipped the ER ones since they sucked. Partsforming, shitty feet, 10 upgrade kits required to make them decent, just all around bad IMO.
I'd be all over GOOD versions of the van bros.
Just want Galvatron needs, even more height added to his already unnecessary height. Definitely not a crown replacement for the one that his comes with which is off.
I'm interested in hands and the necklace chain, but good grief I don't need all the other junk driving up the cost.
The Madness has a much better looking head since his is a completely new sculpt too, despite not being injection moulded.
Looks like the latest Shockwave Lab kits are showing up in stock (Mainframe gap fillers + Netflix blaster, Dai Atlas fillers).
Just the belly gap for ER Prowl, but isn't very good...unless you repaint and use the wrong intended orientation.
Man I just want that RIFLE!
Wow, nothing in that needs upgrading. He only needs the spire longer, better feet and a shorter barrel if you have the fusion cannon on his fore arm. And a better head.
Not sure why there is so much hate, proportionally Galvatron looks MUCH better with the kit, has some good face choices, much better hands and the G1 gun. Looks good to me!
Man seeing these new hands for Galvatron and messing around with Kingdom Rodimus makes me really wish ER Optimus had slightly more articulated fingers. (my man needs to point dramatically at things)
For some of us, DNA's option would've been nicer to know before purchasing other stuff. I do like how most of this kit looks, except for the feet parts.
Their obsession with extenders generally make figures look worse overall, especially proportions, and the trend continues here.
DNA also has a tendency to do changes to the final product and look, so we'll see.
I'm very surprised a 3rd party hasn't made an upgrade kit for him. Regardless of Hasbro giving us one via the Centurion, it's just odd that 3rd party hasn't tried to compete as they used to in past years. "We don't need to make this kit, we're just going to and you'll buy it." "Yes. Yes, I will."
I think Earthrise Optimus' hands are too small to allow for further engineering on them.
I feel like the main problem with ER Optimus is that compared with Rodimus and Galvatron he's too small in general.
Echoing the wish that DNA added pointier feet and a longer spire to the Galvatron kit.
ZX kit has both and while they are a good idea they're poorly executed. I'd love to replace them with something injection molded with DNAs awesome paint matching.
The larger spire really doesn't work that well with Kingdom Galvatron's proportions. The compact backpack puts the spire rather close to the head. Having a larger spire makes it look really off.
It's way too big for alt mode regardless.
How's he too small compared to Rodimus? Rod's wings make him look bigger, but they're basically the same height to the head.
Galvatron's a little too big. I think he should be closer in size to Prime (and Megatron), but Hasbro wanted him to scale with Magnus for some reason.
Leaders be leadin' I guess...
Yeah, I'm thoroughly whelmed by the set, but considering what it has that I want, I'll probably pick it up for $30. The hands and the extended Matrix chain are the main draw for me, and the faces & G1 rifle are neat (even though I wouldn't get much mileage out of them). I'm really conflicted on the leg extensions, though. It does make him a bit more proportional, but he's already pretty tall and I don't really think it's all that necessary (and they also only show off the base figure with the slumped shoulders and not flipped around, which makes the proportions look a bit worse). I really would have liked to see a slight spire extension and feet extenders/replacements to give him his old pointy feet, almost reminiscent of tap shoes.
I think Prime could have proportionally been a bit beefier without an increase to his height. I have him on a shelf with my MP Primal, MP Lio Convoy and Encore Big Convoy. And while they're all more of less the same height and look good together, the BW guys definitely have more beef to them that Prime lacks.
I know how's not supposed to go with them but I think it illustrates what could be better on him.
Does anyone else see a serious need for some upgrade kits for Prime Wars Trilogy toys ?
