LOL i just realized grimlock has dog ears, grimlock good little puppy. But anyway who decides where the chrome goes on these guys? the shoulders on prime look stupid & the hands are just a very bad idea cause its going to flake off from the gun being inserted repeatedly. The chrome does make these look better but still doesnt justify the price, id still rather just wait for a clearance to pick up prime & paint him my self. Thats if these ever show in my area, stopped by a few stores today to kill time & look for a charger for my phone & no one had any AoE stuff not eve a place for them. The walmarts are the only stores that have anything but its only leaders & the quick change guys. It pisses me off that the store still dont stock things cause it means ill never see any generations but im also glad cause hasbro wont be making any money in this area. Also didnt find the charger i need either

That seems to be the 'thing' with this line. No altmode parts visible in the robot mode.

It's awful.


So I am the only one who notices his giant alt mode backpack? And I have seen shots of the figure from the front and those alt mode panels are very visible.

They mean in the robot mode's design are there no vehicle parts visible. Little-to-nothing from the truck actually integrates into his body in robot mode, resulting in the outlandish backpack of truck kibble. The backpack isn't part of his robot mode body design, hence all the talk of the truck parts not being part of his robot mode body.

That Galvatron is just hot garbage in bot mode. :SICK: I hope Takara can salvage this hot mess and give more impressive paint apps or a G1 version. The alt-mode I think is far more impressive and though it is a shell-former kinda it all seems to collapse quite nicely IMO. :VEHI:

That backpack really is nothing to fuss about. I'd rather have all the kibble on the back allowing the robot to be as screen accurate as possible over having it anywhere else. Galvatron appears to have a pretty well executed design. The only thing I'm a little bothered with is where the knees bend. Other than that though, I'm really looking forward to him. However, I may wait till Botcon reveals to see if there is a more attractive deco being released. I can see this figure having several different versions down the line or being packed with something good.

That doesn't seem to be the "thing" with Evasion Mode OP, or Crosshairs, or Drift, or BB, or Hound, or any of the Dinobots. It's really just Galvatron and the Leader-class OPs.

Yes, this is a shellformer, but it's like the best shellformer ever. And the complaints about no kibble? really?

The robot mode seems a little action figurey but then again, isn't that the point?

I don't see any reason why this can't be considered a decent toy.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

I can't speak for anyone else but the big concern for me is how little each mode actually transforms into the other. What we have is not quite an action figure, not quite a Transformer, and not quite the sum of its parts.

Prime RID Deluxe Vehicon is a fine example of how a figure can have a coherent robot mode design with little-to-no traces of altmode elements or kibble in it anywhere and still transform excellently into a just as coherent altmode design.

Leader OP and Voyager Galvatron? No so much.

That chrome looks really nice. Shame about the dull grey on the things and stuff, but nothing a bit of paint won't fix.

Also, for all this talk about how Hasbro needs to "aim for collectors" if you're having that much trouble with the chrome flaking you're obviously being much too rough with it.

Might as well buy Hound only for all those cool weapons. The arms are horrible looking. Something like Stretch Armstrong and an accordion had a baby Hound. :roll:

Defiantely my favourite voyager of this lot so far. I love weapon storage in robot mode (like generations drift). This is a pretty kickass figure.

Great to see that Hound is really good. I've been looking forward to getting him more than the other voyagers. All of those weapons are an absolute plus and it doesn't look like they take away from the size of the figure either. Hopefully I can see some comparison images for height soon.
