    Too bad you don't have Botcon Metalhawk on hand; would love to see him with with the others as well (particularly the PROP one since they're both based on the shell) Still good pics and it's nice to see him get so much love.

    I own a Cybertron Vector Prime from back in the day and he's awesome, so I was all for a new toy of him, even if it was this small.

    I love how his matrix mode looks kind of like a Cyber-Planet Key. Hasbro didn't need to do that, but they did anyway.

    Since I got TR Metalhawk for my kid, it was a no-brainer to pick this figure up as well.

    Ironically, it’s been months since I did yet it still remains unopened.

    I still think TR Metalhawk is fugly. that and he doesn\'t really look much like metalhawk in either mode.

    He's boxed away at a spot that isn't always easy to get to. I'll have a look at pulling him out for a quick pic up the line.

    A few of the Spark modes are definitely Cyber Key-ish. Alpha Trion is very similar.

    Kind of makes me hope Takara does a metallic version of MetalHawk from their version of the mold so it can use the metalhawk decoy suit as a Targetmaster.

    I think if I were more familiar with the original G1 figure and Masterforce cartoon, I'd probably be right there with you.

    Back to the PotP decoy suit, I'm a big fan of it overall: the design is fantastic (actually, all of the figures are) and colors pop insanely well.

    The Decoy shells look neat. can't say I see myself getting to many, if any considering how much Titan Masters were to import to my country.
    If I had to pick one it'd definitely be Blood/Bomburst though.

    a new mold for Hawk would be nice but tbh I think the TR one looks good in bot mode nonetheless and the deco's spot on. I'm quite frankly just happy we have him and to boot it also means you can put a Metalhawk head into the Metalhawk shell; how many characters can we say have that opportunity

    Why is his face so... handsome?! It's a tiny face, it shouldn't be so frickin' well defined!

    Is it just me, or does Vector Prime's 'face' look like the Stargate?
