- Weapon: Acid Spray Gun
Received my Prime Gaia Unicron yesterday and I must say I am very dissapointed. I must preface this by saying now that I have him, I probably still would have bought him as a completist (when it comes to some lines), and he's still pretty cool for what he is - (like if you could be a kid who knows nothing of money or expectations. I love the character model and he's a pretty good representation with some cool features (gold paint)....
However....when it comes to value for my dollar I feel ripped off. I also must say that there are times when the value isnt there but it's offset by some other aspect of the figure. I dont often base my enjoyment of a figure on value for my dollar, but in this case it is so aggregious that I am taken aback by it.
Yeah his alt mode is crap, we knew that, but what was shocking was the small size and poor quality. I thought from all of the pics and early news that he was a little bigger than a voyager, but he seems less like a big voyager and more like a long stretched out deluxe class toy. And not the deluxe class we've known over the years, but the latest flimsy tiny hollow deluxes they've been putting out recently. Tiny tiny head that reminded me of FOC Optimus...so many aspects of this figure remind me of FOC deluxes, and of course a lot of Prid Megs, complete with all the crappy, loose balljoints....not recomended. It's starting to look more and more like I will be focusing on my G1 collection going forward, with a little third party mixed in (also got TFC Photron yesterday which is pretty cool).
