    Received mine today and a quick unbox to assemble it and some random pictures. Will share my thoughts here as well after fully messing with it and pictures taking.

    My initial thought is so far so good and it did exceed my expectations as some of the reviews turn me off initially.

    Taken this picture just to test if it could replicate what some of the famous renders of this OP.

    To a point. It's all perceived value for your money.

    Yeah but to the part about Matrix, none of the DLX Primes have a Matrix Chamber, except the MDLX.

    Also, what do you mean about "panel fillers"?

    When using the ab crunch or butterfly joints they cover the gaps created.

    Oh, makes sense. Yeah, that's a valid complaint, though personally I'm not too bothered by it since rarely will you ever see those angles when getting the figure posed that way.
    Again, valid issue.

    Panel fillers and matrix chamber are a bit sad, tho most dlx primes don't have it anyways. But how cheap are dlx primes? I thought they went for like $300

    Siege DLX Prime costs $179, DLX ROTF, BBM and ROTF Prime costs $230. And DLX TLK Prime costs $240.
    The cheapest TZ Prime is MDLX Prime at $80.

    yeah wtf. This is atl $30 cheaper than a dlx figure of the same size. I can see contention against maybe the siege version, but that one was a also a much simpler design. Considering this comes with the same amount of accessories if not more than other dlx figures i believe its reasonable

    Ironically I think arcee is the only figure that scales here

    Actually IW-07 is way taller than DLX Siege Prime. But Siege Prime is super heavy and feels like a brick. A super good brick that poses like a beast.
    I like TFP's design a little more, but Siege DLX Prime is the winner when it comes to the way he feels. They pose about the same.
    I may or may not do a comparison shots with all my DLX Primes.

    Not really a good photo, but here IW-07 is next to his high-end brethren.

    Thanks. Lol.
    And this isn't even all of my non Transformable collection, I just momentarily moved the rest for this shot.

    And Planet X Prime?
    You mistook one of these guys for him?
    IMG_7318.jpeg
    Mm no, don't like the WFC/FOC designs, but I'll clarify which these all all are. Lol
    Top Row, from Left to Right;
    Iron Warrior Leader, DLX ROTF Optimus, Siege DLX Optimus, DLX TLK Optimus, and BBM DLX Optimus.
    Bottom Row, Left to Right;
    AMK Yolopark Optimus, two Revoltech DOTM Optimi - one which I customized to have his G1 paint job, and MDLX Optimus.

    Why do you think he went with Bee next?
    I bet he will do Megs next? Then what maybe KnockOut?
