    If only they added handles for him to hold the matrix. Even if they are taken off to put the matrix into the chest

    Shockwave Labs should throw in a replacement star for the chest too.

    Would have been an instant buy if they had done some for this

    The matrix looks nice. Don't care about the light up part, but if I could just have the matrix for my classics, I'd be a happy camper (don't have star convoy so the fillers would be useless to me).

    Would those filler pieces work with PotP Prime?

    OH I like that a lot. This is my favorit look for Prime, and that little light makes him look all the more interesting.

    The legs are unchanged between Star Convoy and POTP Optimus, so the pieces should work in theory.

    Lame upgrades imo. No tank threads and new cab or armoured parts to make a G1 looking alt mode plus no tiny Hotrod Micromaster makes me sad...

    I suspect they'd already designed this for POTP Optimus and had simply not released it - as if it was actually designed for Star Convoy wouldn't it have the extra post to merge with the gun on it ?

    It might be worth buying 3 of these sets I guess mostly for the gap fillers. Unless they plan to re-release it in Gold for use with POTP Optimus too.
    But I do get a trifle irked that they only filled the gaps in the larger robot form and not in the smaller one - but perhaps the idea might roll over onto one of the other kit makers and they might do something with a more extensive set of fillers included.

    ---

    Speaking of new cool stuff though - this just came out too : And much to my surprise "It doesn't Light up!!!" (laugh)

    At that point why not just buy the MMC one?

    No release date in sight and this already scales with all other CHUG releases? Plus, even factoring the cost of a couple upgrade kits, it'll very likely still be a fair bit cheaper than what the MMC version will cost. To be fair though, I bitch about all the Hasbro shortcomings, buy the upgrade kits for them, and then buy the 3rd party offering without most of the shortcomings, so my opinion on the matter is kinda pointless

    Massive missed opportunity not giving him a correct gun.
