    Mine arrived today!

    The robot mode is stellar. One of the best Primes ever, easily. The shoulders are not an issue, at least to me. He is exceedingly poseable and looks fantastic from every angle.

    The back of the vehicle mode is, sadly, as bad as you think. I was hoping, as is sometimes the case, that photos exacerbate a feature that turns out to be a minor annoyance at best in hand. I’ve never seen a nearly flawless figure so savagely prevented from achieving perfection by such a fatal error. I understand that the budget is to blame, but I can’t help but think of several less egregious compromises they could have made to keep those two blue panels from sticking out backwards behind the cab. Such a shame.

    Get it for the robot mode. Don’t pass him up. But don’t expect to transform him too often into truck mode.

    Just got this guy in person.. The gray plastic doesn't look as cheap in person as it does in picture.

    FYI Chatted Target and they reassured it would release by 8/15 and refunded my shipping costs for being "patient", whatever that is. LOL

    By far one of the best Primes that Hasbro has made, overall I like him a lot better than the BBM Prime

    I seem to have gotten very lucky. Yesterday, after my order went from backorder to preparing to ship, it went back to backorder. But today, it returned to preparing for ship and now I have a tracking number. So, if you did get backordered, there is still a chance they ship it out.

    By no means is this an improvement, but I think I’ll leave the truck mode like this whenever transforming him. 0D24437E-F5BB-4CE0-8174-7D32EF45F944.jpeg 9FD6B5ED-73C8-492B-8C38-698A4B877D89.jpeg 1BCCCDC0-F900-4778-88B5-018EBEEC76A7.jpeg

    Got an email from Target. Order isn’t cancelled but they asked me to OK a delayed delivery (which I did). So hopefully that means I’ll get it then.
