They are show accurate, the elbows look like that on the CGI model.

I love how the hands fold up and hide when combined with the gun, creating the illusion of the gun being part of the arm. If only it was metallic.


Ah, brush and paint are being ..warmed up (?).

I seriously like this guy!

Except for Hot Shot


So Hot Shot will not be in the show? Awesome. Means I don't have to pick his silly ass up.

As for this gallery...eh.

I will admit that the hiding kibble is impressive. It really is. From what I can tell... The rear window and spoiler fold in behind the trunk on his head. The roof, windshield and hood fold up to form his calves.

Leaving you with fender legs and car side arms.

I still much prefer the First Edition that I have. I admit his back kibble is one of the biggest I've seen on a figure, but it's on hinges that allow you ti hide most of it when you see him from the front. (From the back is a different story, I know.)

The arms fold down to form a better arm. The weapon is more accurate. The legs and feet are incredibly accurate. Plus he's hunched over more and bulkier.

The PRID version's arms SUCK. The legs aren't show accurate. The figure's too thin and too tall. Plus the colors. Way too bright.

I'd consider buying one for troop building purposes, like have my FE be Steve, and this guy be his **** underling.

It's not a bad figure, honestly. If this was all they offered us and the First Edition didn't exist, I'd have snapped it up, but knowing there is better out there...well, I'll get to the Vehicon when and if I choose to.

I would like to see a toy of the flying Vehicon. It looks awesome.


i don't know man, the vehicon in the show, to me, isn't very bulky at all. and to me, the RiD vehicons legs look more accurate (other than the wheel placement, which on both is equally inaccurate) and they even have the light purple paint detail on the shins.

the vehicon is supposed to be pretty tall.

the general shape of the RiD forearms is more accurate, all it's missing is a little filling in.

and when positioned the way we've seen in the official hasbro photo of the RiD figure, the gun is actually more accurate.

the head is also a little more accurate, but not by much.

i'd also have to argue with you that the first edition isn't more hunched over. judging by these photos, the RiD versions head looks like it's pushed further forward than the first edition. in my eyes, the first edition looks like there's a straight line from head to crotch.

and lastly.. the color of the vehicle mode is more of a real dark purple, closer to black, which is more accurate to the show.

i understand that you prefer the first edition. but i don't think you can make a case that it's more accurate.

i hope they're able to modify the RiD vehicon to make the aerial drone.

Not saying that he wont be in the show, just saying that we got a toy of a character that is not in the show (at least not yet).

If shelf space wasn't a tight commodity I'd want to build an army of these myself. Probably stick to just 1 or 2 though. Lets hope we get the flying Vehicon at some point.

I don't often buy the pricier Takara versions of things, so I can't speak from first hand experience. BUT, I am quite satisfied with a few Hasbro offerings in the Prime category, and it looks like this one will be another. Good job Hasbro. :APPLAUSE:

I'm genuinely impressed by this guy. I agree the colors are a little bright but he looks good. I'd like to have 4 of these and one FE version as their "team leader." I do hope, as well, that they make the flying Vehicon.

It seems all the back kibble disappears into the feet. The last few photos show the inner leg and some transparent plastic bits folded into it.
The difference is amazing.

I care not for show accuracy in this minion character, just a good design that looks like a good, fun toy. So this is a definite win. The side-by-side pics with the First Edition one almost make me wonder if the molds were switched, and this one was meant to be the rare one that makes a mockery of the mass released one, but glad that's not the case, as I might be able to get one of these.

I'm not for army-building them, but do hope that we get the aerial one, hopefully with a similarly kibble-free robot mode, so I can use them as updated Clones.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.

I believe that in terms of color it is the particularly bright purple in robot mode that is the offender. Also in the show the paint job's appearance seems to be highly dependent on lighting to me so I would argue that it could look either way.

As for the arms I'd say your both half right. They're a little too bulky on the FE and a little too spindly on the RiD. The legs are in general closer to being accurate on the FE but it's missing a few small aesthetic features that the RiD has.

Personally I'd want the limbs from the FE placed on the RiD's torso, much like how I feel about Arcee.

I don't like it. The head sculpt looks wrong to me. The deco is louder than it should be. The gun is nice and the disappearing car kibble is a cool trick. The FE Vehicon looks much better to me though. It looks like a Transformer. This looks like a generic comic book robot to me. I'd like one of each but I'm certainly not gaga over this one. He's just okay IMO.

That's fair. Although, I'd say the FE Vehicon is probably more accurate because the show has a rather dark hue to... well, everything. Arcee is way too bright in her PRID form. So is the Vehicon.

The overall theme of the show is darkness, so I can't blame them for trying to build an atmosphere of darker colors.

Actually, this gallery doesn't have the FE version transformed quite right. (Why is it that this toyline has the worst example pictures? Whether it's an official, 3rd party or collector source....no one seems to transform them right. Annoying. Ruins a perfectly good figure...

Vicalliose wrote:Personally I'd want the limbs from the FE placed on the RiD's torso, much like how I feel about Arcee.


Hmm. I dunno. I'll probably buy a PRID Vehicon, I'll be able to compare the two in detail, I still think the FE is more accurate, not counting the kibble.

I'm going to have to start a comparison thread...

I may be one of the few who actually still wants the FE more. :P

And for the folks talking about this figure's elbows - these RiD elbows are actually VERY accurate. Check some of the show renders out there. The Vehicons have weird elbows like this.
