TF Prime Knock Out

Postby caked-up » Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:15 pm

Weapon: Dual Impact Maces
Here is the deluxe toy for one of my favorite characters in the Prime series. Overall the mold was done well, but some seriously screwed up the deco. It is overly complex in the wrong ways and isn't even accurate. Hopefully Reprolabels will fix him shortly.

This figure is great, but has quite a few problems:

1. The paint deco seems really off in some places.
2. The arms look awfully dis-proportioned.
3. The chest and shoulder area is a total mess.
4. Hasbro has no idea what the hell they're doing with the instructions, even though they designed it!
5. I HAVE BEEN WAITING 6 MONTHS HERE IN THE UK FOR WAVES 2 AND 3 OF THE PRIME LINE TO COME OUT, YET THEY STILL HAVEN'T ARRIVED!!!!

I agree on points 1 and 5. I think for point 2 if they allowed the windows to fold over it would be a lot better. As for point 6 I am right there with you because I haven't seen a Vehicon yet!

Wave 2 has already been released, its probably taking time to filter through because shelves are still being clogged up with wave 1. Wave 3 I think is scheduled for release sometime in July.

I haven't seen them yet. Last time I looked was Sunday before the last, so I'll have another look next time I can.

You do have to be patient. Wave 2 cases including:

BUMBLEBEE x3
CLIFF JUMPER x1
WHEELJACK x1
SOUNDWAVE x1
RATCHET x1
ARCEE x1

So out of a case of 8 figures there is only one Arcee and one Ratchet that haven't been released previously and they go first. After spending weeks searching round my local area I gave up and got mine off eBay.

I read a Seibertron article that said UK wave 2 consisted of Arcee, Ratchet, Vehicon, Hot Shot, Knockout, And Bumbleshit.

I think Hot shot, Vechicon and Knock are all wave 3.
