PRID SS is basically on par with FE SS. I mean, scale-wise FE is better. But the overall aesthetic is about even; both molds have their pros and cons.
FE Bulkhead is nothing but awful though.

PRID prime is nowhere near better with his floppy legs and horrible back kibble. His abs have no color he's missing do much red his shoulders have parts of the bumper on it and his gun is crap no matter if the battery pack is on it or not. And as far as PRID SS being on par with FE SS not even close PRID SS waist dose not snap it it just slightly plugs in and any movement and it pops right out the ankle kibble is bad in jet mode there is a big hinge on the nose cone that ruins the shape of the front of the jet. The feet stick out the back of the plane and I'm not saying they are bad figures but they are nowhere near as good and I have them all in hand not just looking at pictures or reviews because a lot of high end reviewers that people like to watch get sponsored by toy sites to sell the product and won't make the out for what it really is crap


First off, punctuation and proper spacing are both quite important. >:oP
Second, I don't mean to imply that PRiD Prime is better, it's just not bad. I wish I had FE Prime, but that's just not going to happen unfortunately.
As for SS, my opinion stands. I do think the aesthetic of the FE is *slightly* better, but from a mechanical standpoint, they both have issues in both modes.

Ya sorry writing is not one of my strong points but I can take your car apart fix what Evers wrong with it a put it all back together same with electronics lol I just suck with using punctuations sorry. And if you have both SS in hand you would see what I'm talking about. I still like the figure its just not as good they were very lazy with some of their engineering

I'll take FE Cliffjumper. Not sure if Arcee is worth it or not, may get RID Arcee. Definitely getting the far-more-superior RID Vehicon over FE Vehicon (multiples, in fact). I have no use for Que. DOTM was a good movie, but the toys were one of the biggest let-downs of my collection career.

I thought dotm figures were better than rotf and the first movie figures and FE arcee is better than rid arcee but rid arcee is still nice and as far as vehicon goes the rid is nice because of no kibble but the FE the plastic looks better in car and robot mode also the elbow joints are better and the gun and the way the gun hooks on to the arm is better. But rid is a lot cheaper but it's hard to find right now I got mine last week and haven't seen a figure from that wave since and I hunt every day

Well the latest PRiD wave hasn't hit very far east yet. I live in northern West Virginia and we haven't quite seen it yet, though I expect to see it this week.

Like I just said to one of my good buddies a few minutes ago, "You have your opinions, I have mine. Neither are true, but neither are false." >:oP
