Easier for some then others. I love SG universe and I will continue to support it as much as possible. The fiction/prose stories are good as well and fleshes out the characters that weren't in the main SG comic. You really do get a sense that it's not just a flip flop either. SG Ops is well...an Evil Optimus. He still calls Ironhide his "Old Friend", he's not Megatron in an Optimus Prime body. And it works better for TF's then other properties because they already deal with multi-dimentions in other TF fiction so it's easy to imagine that there would be and SG universe. I also like the fact that I won't have to worry about Hasbro making any SG figures and putting them to retail. Most people complain about their toys being exclusive, guess what, these are EXCLUSIVES that won't be seen in the mainline.

I'm glad someone pointed out the blue breathing thingy on the original figure shell. It was obviously intended to be "connected" to the face plate, just like this Botcon figure... only it comes across more like a printed detail on the shell, because of limitations.

Taking that into consideration, the figure's pretty close to the original... save the size of the diving bell. Not bad for a straight repaint, knowing they can only do so many new heads per set.

I know Primus is multiversal and all, but I am missing why this is worth noting. Wouldn't Cliffjumper describe Primus as benevolent even if there was a badass SG Primus out there? Cliffjumper is describing beings as he knows them, from his slice of the multiverse....he would probably also describe any number of Autobots as benevolent even though they were not in SG.

But as I stated earlier, I may be missing the point of this "note".

Maybe this will shed some light: Nexus Maximus Prime reformated the dead SG Megatron into SG Galvatron with a fragment of Primus' power. This mirrors G1 Galvatron's creation by Unicron.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The point I was getting at is that Primus is good and Unicron is evil even in the Shatteredverse.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Yup, I knew that. I just don't think that Cliffjumper saying Primus is good offers any support for Primus being good. He would have said that anyway as he was speaking of "his" Primus. I know there is only one Primus, but I don't know if Cliffjumper caught that TFWiki entry. :)

Except when the mainline figures get retconned into the fiction. Then HASBRO did unintentionally release them to retail.
