About 9" (9 1/2" if you extend the knees).

Honestly, I don't really like him. I got him because I never had him as a kid. The plastic on him feels cheap to me and there's no die-cast on him.


No dcp? WTF?

It suprised me just how small Prme is in bot mode compared to his truck. I was kinda hoping he would be about the smae size as Megatron in bot mode but the top of his head barely reaches Megs shoulders. Megs is just huge! :D I'll snap a pic of them both in Alt mode.

As for Prime, I don't know how the rest of ours is but mine came with a few bugs. I hate having to repair a TF I just bought. :x

1.) The hip, knee, and ankle joints are very loose. Very prone to falling over.

2.) One half of the front bumber constantly falls off.

3.) Compared to other pictures I've seen of him, the finish on mine sucks. The colors between the front grill, hood, doors, etc. all look like a different shade of red.

4.) The hood is mis-aligned. There is a gap between the back of the hood and the windsheild. It results in the hood not closing properly.

This Prime's getting repainted so I'll have to tear him apart anyway. It just sucks when you have to fix something that you wanted for so long.

Steeljaw kicks ass though!



Don't feel bad about Blaster, He never did have any Die-cast parts aside from the posts that hold his arms to the torso!

Ah yes! Back when I lived somewhere cool. 2 Targets, 1 TRU, 1 Walmart, and 1 K-mart. Now, only 1 Walmart.

BTW I only have 3 Swerves now. :cry:

Also, I really like those KO's. I want to get one of those white Hounds!

I swear those are plastic on the reissue. Cause I was freaked about rotating the shoulders. I'm at work right know so I can't tell. Anyone else have the reissue?


Also, I found another Alt Prime at Walmart today! This one looks pretty good quality wise and I didn't have to buy a case to get him!

I hear you. I've got 1 target, 1 toysrus, 1 KB, and a little ways away 1 Walmart, and it seems like Pittsburgh is the last to get stuff, if we get it at all. I never saw the first release of Meister and Tracks, not one on our shelves. Come to think about it, no deadend or swerve either. I spend too much in shipping those types in.
till all are one.

Big city = Lots of stores! :) = Lot's of people :x

When I had all those stores around me, they where all on my way home from work. It was perfect! I could stop by 2-3 times a week and pick stuff up before the weekend crowds.

You know, the best luck I ever have finding shortpacked stuff in the stores when I go back to MT to visit the folks. There is hardly any collectors there and TF's aren't that popular it seems. The shelves are always stocked!

New Hampshire=middle of no where=not alot of stores

Walmart has a bigger selection of transformers than Toys'r'us and neither store has a selection of gundams which saddens me

Diecast in the arm posts. Mine is very tight which had me worried at first, but with a little gently pressure his arms move well enough, better then loose as hell.

Yeah, I double checked it also. They look like grey plastic but their metal. I still think the whole thing feels cheap, like most KO's.

Very cool! Truly Masterpiece's worth every penny. These guys have so many bells and whistles on them! Highly recomended!









On a side note, I stoked about my new helicopter.

If I could, I'd strap THS Convoy to the bottom for some action movie stunts. :)
