    Can't make a scene, if I don't have the green.

    At least I still have my amazon.jp preorder.

    You know, I like Throne Primal using the blast armor to extend his shoulders while Optimal keeps them on his forearms.

    It gives him an extra element of size that adds to the more powerful look of the throne version. He just needs a cape.

    My Throne arrived today, and yet another iffy shipping job from HasbroToyShop. The shipping box had some airs bags on only one end of the box, but not surrounding the whole figure, and the tape wasn't even holding it completely closed. Something leaned on or creased the shipping box which ended up putting a crease across the whole back of the toy box, but it's not bad. Glad I'm not worried about keeping it pristine. Sounds like it fared a lot better in shipping than the G1 reissues have been arriving to people from Walmart, at least. I would expect better for $8 in shipping. For a little more after that and taxes, I could have gotten the Takara release shipped in January pristine from BBTS, but I didn't want to wait.

    The box is really fragile. My plastic tray was broken at the corners. I hear a lot of people are breaking the box during opening too.

    Any idea on removing the wheel so one might see all the prime masters at once? And where you could attach it so the ratchet stays functional?

    The wheel is pinned in place with a two piece plastic mushroom pin. The ratcheting comes from the plastic housing I think, so you could take it off and then cut out clear plastic to make the ratchet work again.

    Super happy with the figure. Glad this is the version of the mold I own. Can't stop fiddling with him!

    No pics yet.

    My first purchase of this mold and will use him for my CHUG Primal. Optimal Optimus will probably be filled by the PE Effect version.

    I have the mismatched shoulders but I'll fix that when I get home.

    A fun figure for what it is.

    I do feel sorry for the Prime Master collectors that this is the only way to get the remaining 4. Hopefully you guys can complete your collection without too much issues.

    I already don't like the fact that the stickers on the side of optimus primal's cockpit are already starting to peel. How can we protect these things?

    This is without a doubt the worst Generations figure I've ever owned, and im pretty forgiving.

    Someone should make a upgrade kit of armor for this figure so he can carry about 8 Prime masters in them while the four are on his staff and the 13th is in his matrix so he can wield all the power of the primes.
