First off, I don't feel you're coming off as a douche. Some of your comments are rather insiteful. I will address a few points, however.
...but your Cyberverse Prime review lacked a list of variants. You could have listed the variants, or at least mention that a blackish trailer was produced as a Wal-mart exclusive(since this essentially was a review of DOTM Primes with trailer
I did handwave that a bit in my review when I said, "For the sake of completeness, I'll mention that (not counting various repaints) there was one additional version of this Optimus Prime that had yet another set of accessories, two different big guns and a pair of swords, both of which could be attached in either robot or vehicle mode." (Also, at one point I state, "He's been repainted a plethora of times.") Even that's a bit more then I'd usually go into in my reviews, though, since I tend to like to concentrate on reviewing what I have rather then commenting on what I don't have.
It also stated:
Other then an unpleasent gap on each side,
Those gaps allow weapon placement due to the handle bars:
Huh... It never occured to me to use them as 3mm clip points. Of course, as there isn't a great excess of 3mm clip-on accessories out there (and what ones I do have tend to stay with the figures they come with) I tend not to exparament with that a lot. (This is completely off topic, but I really think Hasbro dropped the ball with the 3mm clip thing... They've included atachment points on many toys, but often those toys -- Warpath, for example -- don't even come with compatable weapons. If they want us to take advantage of these, they should have been throwing extra weapons in with a lot of these figures. Perhaps something for a third party company to take up the challange of?)
Anyway, I know why it is there (clearance for those handles which you've also found can be a 3mm clip atachment point). And I'm not overly
bothered by it. But if we're looking at the trailer asthetically, I stand by my statement that it is an unpleasent gap.
Alas, the excessories I am featuring here are mutually exclusive. This is not at surprising and not terribly bothersome, as admitedly they were sold seperately with different decos of this Optimus Prime toy, so they were not designed to work together.
I find this comment wrong as well
I have worked together the three accessory variations together(with an extra jetpack) to make a cyberverse Ultimate Prime of sorts.
That is... That is impressive. Of course, as I don't have the extra backpack, I can't pull that off. Still, nice one!
You also failed to mention the ports on top of the trailer for Mechtech or Mini-con play value, one male and one female, although the female seems a bit loose(no pun intended
I suppose that was an unfortunate omission on my part. And bad pun! Bad! Go stand in the corner!

I suppose in theory that would be worth mentioning, too. But since this is pretty much the only DOTM Cyberverse toy I have I was not quite aware of this, and even if I was I can kind of only review what I have. Still, that is neat to know and it looks like if you're really into Cyberverse (as opposed to me, who is just really into Optimus) you can get a lot of play value out of that.
If you're feeling up to it (although you're under no obligation to) I'd not mind inviting you to write up your additional thoughts on this figure in a slightly more formal fashion, and I can publish them (with full credit to you, of course) as an addendium to the review. (Or if you don't wish to do so yourself, would you mind if I took your photos and comments, again with credit to you, and did something with them?)
If you're at all interested, feel free to contact me in a PM. If not, no problem. Either way, glad you enjoyed the review!
