    Thank you so much for the info! Kinda wish it could just move out of the way a bit, but the figure still looks pretty sweet.

    So with the piece in place you don't get much waist movement 20191129_124855.jpg 20191129_124919.jpg now taking it off gives you complete 360 movement. Personally I would not pop off often as stress marks will happen. This thin piece is the front wheels of the truck cab.

    Thank you very much for sharing! I think I will leave it in place, the waist articulations seems good enough with it on.

    Now I just need to decide on a Roller. I have the thrilling 30, G1, BTS 3rd party Command Center, or I purchase a Siege Cog to choose from. Anybody got any suggestions :) ?

    yes the prowl molds do with and without weapons but just barely. 100 % sure the larger deluxes are too big for it.

    Thank. A bit disappointing that the trailer isn’t even able to manage its basic function with the other figures.

    I see, thank you for the demonstration! It doesn't seem to be that much less that what an average guy can comfortably do, so I think I can live with that waist swivel. It's kind of comforting to know there's some aspects Siege Prime still has the edge over this newer Optimus toy. I can practically hear them bickering:

    "What's the matter, newbie? Can't do some basic aerobics with that limited waist of yours? How pathetic."
    "Oh, shut up, old man! Call me back once you can open your hands."
    "Who you're calling old?! I'm not the one who has the flexibility of a fossil. Is your spinal column fused from the neck down or the bottom up?"
    "The only fused things around here are your ugly ass hands! Tell me, how high can you count on those things? 3? 2? Oh, that's right, it's 0! Your hands combined make a big, fat double zero, just like you!
    "Stiffwaist!"
    "Fuseyfingers!!"
    "Stiffwaist!!"
    "Fuseyfingers!"
    "STIFFWAIST!!!"
    "FUSEYFINGERS!!!"

    Remember though this new line is all about the battle stations and micromasters again. We have already seen Cliffjumper in it so maybe more earthrise deluxe will fit ?

    Honesty the trailer is nothing special . Its cheaply made and feels it. Cool they added it lets see what else they do for it.

    With the front half of cog you could attach blast effects on each end and would also fit

    Well you got a 1:60 truck and trailer trying to fit 1:35 scale cars, kind of a challenge if you think about it.
