    Looks cool in vehicle mode. Robot mode is total failure.

    I like that mold a lot, painted as Motormaster would be awesome, the original colors are like crap.

    They should re-paint that mold as Orion Pax - would work very well IMO...

    The colour scheme is really suited for the mold... I can't see why it was canned in the first place, it would have made a great display piece.

    But I'm defiantely not too sure about the price... ^^;

    The color scheme definitely doesn't look final - but then....it was gonna be a Universe toy, so uh, no telling really

    Chances are they would have added more purple and neon green.
    (Looks at Universe Optimus Primal... :rolleyes2 )

    Much as it was the worst Prime mould there's been (with the possible exception of the Gobot), I think it makes a much better Menasor (or Motormaster). It could have been improved, though, by using the Thunder Clash version, though - the gravity-feed missile launchers are one of its best and most unique features!

    Pity that never saw the light of day, I've wanted this mold for years and would've snapped him up in a heartbeat.

    I actually really liked the Machine Wars release of it; only thing that really dragged it down was the incredibly limited articulation in bot mode.

    I think that the mold is not so bad after all, but his worst problem is that the trailer can not pivot with the truck.

    I like to refer to machine wars as simply ''brick wars'' it was that bad, I guess the guys at hasbro were having a really bad week when these guys were made

    Sweet proto though i can see that going big

    Except for all the hyperarticulated MW and G2 figures?
    Flipchangers, Cyberjets, Stealth Assault/Dreadwing, Laser Rods, Lasercycles...

    The Machine Wars basics are quite articulated. The larger ones were the brick repaints from Euro G1.
