    This is an awesome, awesome figure. Planet X really delivers the goods. It's great to see a company focus on a line and kill it like this. Trypticon is going to blow my mind. I am ready for Skywarp and Tcracker. I hope we get some autobot cars. I am in for the long haul after this Prime. I have Jupiter next to Striker Manus and Planet X just body slams MTs in feel and finish.

    So I got this guy for Christmas and one thing has been bugging me. The tab on the gun that supposedly helps the gun stay on his hand is only like a half tab on my copy, if that makes sense. Like literally the tab is only half there..is it supposed to be like that? Or did I get miffed..? The gun seems to fall off way too easy, even in reviews.

    Can someone with Jupiter take side by side shots with other Prime figures such as Combiner Wars Prime, Maketoys Striker Manus, or other Voyager Primes please?

    edit: I saw pics alongside Manus, but still wonder how he looks next to CW Prime. :)

    True.. But I'm at work for a while yet. Any way you could post a pic of yours (or anyone for that matter) to compare mine to? It's the inner peg on the gun that holds it on primes arm when using it to replace his hand.

    As they said a pic would help, but I can tell you that the gun doesn't stay on mine very well either. Sometimes it works, but sometimes I have to pose the arm then put the gun on.

    Yup... Mine is the same.
    It's like 1/2 a peg to no peg at all.

    Ah damn.. That's exactly what I was looking for. At least I know it's not just mine and not worth asking for a replacement.

    Thanks to everyone else, sorry I didn't have a pic ready before I asked.

    Mine does too. It holds well enough when displayed but still falls off quite easy. Not a deal breaker for me since I think this guy is maybe my favorite 2016 figure even over inferno and optimus primal. I added him to my voyager optimus prime bookcase at work!

    Just ordered mine today. Can't wait. I just like how blocky, chunky, beefy, and clunky he looks- he's just a real heavy load of bot, ya know. And the matrix is just an extra treat- because personally I don't think they had to do that- they went the extra mile to satisfy the consumer with that- so that was nice of them. One thing I can't tell: are the legs painted with metallic blue paint, or is that shiny blue plastic?
