    Surpringly, I only wanted the Dinobots and about three of the Prime Masters from this line. None of the others held my interest.

    It did seem like a filler/catch-up line and I think it suffered a bit due to brand unification solidifying efforts later instead of before.

    However, there were some standouts, for me, Prime stood out. Getting Battletrap was cool too. Primal was decent as well if you're into the evolution gimmick. Prime was a good way to close out the Prime Wars trilogy since it's the same size as CW Megatron and it was cool to see a Prime finally on even footing(and was straight up G1).

    POTP Prime's robot mode is pretty good looking. Alt mode, not so much.

    Nemesis version worked better as the black panels blended in better with the rest of the black deco.

    Last of the real leader sizes, I guess.

    I agree, I was pretty underwhelmed by the cab and trailer for Prime when I 1st got mine. Bot mode was like MP-10 jr. could've been better but a nice endcap/send off for POTP.

    Nemesis looked cool, sometimes I debate on picking it up.

    Hot rod is alright. Not great but just okay. But in rodimus prime mode I was hoping a shoulder upgrade will be available someday. And now it's available on ebay. Finally potp rodimus prime has a proper shoulder joint. But yes I was hoping the upgrade will help hot rob knees. But I'm not sure.

    More pictures of the Upgrade shoulders for potp rodimus prime and it also for hot rod knees.
    Now is double jointed knees.

    Looks like the upgrade is also for hot rod. Like a double jointed knees. But i think it still have problems with the thighs that can't bend up so far but we will see. Hope it's good
