    There was a rumor about a deluxe Apex Armor at one point, it of course could happen since the same source that leaked that also leaked out information of things like the SDCC set before we knew they were happening.

    I really like this figure, it may take a while before I can get one but man those pics have me sold.

    Thanks for the impressions.

    I freaking love this. This is like 1988 all over again, but better.

    There's also a rumor that the mold is going to be made into a Diaclone Powered Convoy/IDW Delta Magnus homage called Magnus Prime later down the line which if that's true I'm really looking forward to since I love how Powered Convoy looks.

    Eh, I'll wait for Takara's version. More power for those who likes this release.

    There's a hit right in the nostalgia. I'm not eyeing much of Titans Return, but this guy is on my short list - PMOP is the first Transformer I remember saving up for as a kid, and for my tastes this looks extremely competent. Wonder if there'll be any deluxes upcoming that the 'Orion Pax' mode head would look good on - nobody so far shown has that slot filled for me.

    Sorry, don't have him

    It is very sturdy, although the head is movable so you to make sure you line it up properly or it can be a pain to connect.

    I'd say comparable to Combiner Wars figures, which I personally never thought felt cheap at all.

    The tabs make it superior to Magnus, but still nowhere as sturdy as standard 5 mm holes. Guns will still often annoyingly pop out.

    No, if you notice in the pic I posted you can see his chest cover stores in his trailer in such a way that it takes up a lot of space. You could definitely fit some smaller figures in there, but nothing like a standard Combiner Wars deluxe.

    Here are some of the pics requested:

    Helmet with no headmaster

    Chest cover down

    Working on some base modes now. One detail I forgot to throw out, the instructions refer to Fort Max combine with Blaster and Optimus Prime as Cybertron City.

    Would you mind taking some pictures of the inside of the cab? Like, detail of the controls inside the chest flaps and the helmet "seat" without Apex sitting there?

    Thank you!

    I'm a fan. G1 Powermaster Prime was my first Optimus Prime figure, and I loved it. I think I still have most of the parts around somewhere!

    I like it. I wish the front of the trailer could close up somehow, but that's pretty much my only gripe. I love my Ultra Magnus, I could hardly believe they were going to re-engineer that figure into this... but here we are!

    Nowhere near as good as I'd hoped, really needs the Titanmaster to provide the eyes. But thank you for the photo!

    looking fwd to seeing base mode pictures!

    seeing this video review makes me believe takara could modify the chest and add a transfomable cab seeing the that transformation i believe that chest isnt necesarry in any way for the truck mode it could be easily modified and the same goes for a transformable cab if takara decides going that way i believe it would be great a wouldnt mind paying import prices in this case

    Thank you!

    That's the base mode as shown on the box but I don't think I'll be transforming it like that. I think the ramps need to be pointing out to the sides rather than tucked back under the arms. So that means different positioning at the knee and/or hips.

    Do the panels move on the side of the legs or are they in a fixed position there? The above photo suggests some movement, but if you could rotate them 90° to the side all problems would be solved.

    That's a fantastic review !

    I saw those small pegs on deluxes wondering what function they could have..... and this review clearly shows they're there to securely peg a standing Titanmaster onto it. Brilliant !

    Looks great! Just preordered him from BBTS! I've been sober since CW Megatron, so it feels good to get back in the game!
