The only one that they got right in the FE-PRID Transition. Why couldn't all the FE - PRID toys learn from him. :D

I continue to rack my brain on this one and I can't come up with a good answer.
FE's tend to be more complex than PRIDs, but PRIDs tend to be more fiddly and time consuming when getting everything just right. False shoulders, flaps here and there, and then some have complex parts on top of everything else.

Just an absolute mess. And I'm sure we never received a definitive answer as to why.

Yeap, there was no need to redesign the entire toy when you already had a perfectly good mold. This is so unlike Hasbro, since complexity of PRID is rather fiddly too. Oh well, PRID's all we're ever gonna get, I'm thankful I got FE prime, BB, Arcee and Starscream at retail, and I'm loving PRID Cliffjumper much more than I thought I would. :D

The head sculpt on the FE is better than PRID but the PRID has a better body in robot mode but when it comes to alt mode the FE craps all over the PRID mold

Haters gonna hate, but this is a beautiful figure. I can't wait to get my hands on it, and it will instantly be one of my favorites of my entire collection.

Just opened mine last night. Nice figure, uncommon and well-engineered transformation. Shoulder pegs feel like they're just waiting to break, however. So be careful!

I love how the top of the car folds up on the legs. The figure is very clean looking I got all 3 deluxe and both voyagers in last night

Heck yeah! I can't wait to pick up this guy. I would welcome a chance to get the FE version too, but this one will also make me happy. :D

Oh holy cats he's awesome! I usually buy two of drones like this, such as DOTM Crankcase, but this guy might be x3 or 4 in my collection. Glorious!

His proportions look so much better than the Cyberverse version, and that one was already really nice. Looks to be a home run, Hasbro! :BOWDOWN:

So you have 3 Vehicons, but only did one gallery. Yeah I'm beating a dead horse here, but if it's one mold that represents what are otherwise characterized as drones, it doesn't deserve more than one gallery...

I shall call him Steve.
If you don't get the reference, GTFO...

Wait...

What?

There are TWO Vehicon galleries. One for the First Edition figure, one for the PRID edition, which is what this thread is about.

Maybe I'm just not reading your post right, but seriously, all I'm getting is a huge bunch of WTF?

You are totally beating a dead horse. :HEADHURTS:

The other drones got multiple galleries because they were different characters with different names. There are 3 BotCon 2010 Sharkticon galleries and 3 BotCon 2009 Sweeps galleries because they have different names. I was just having fun with it ... discussions like this take the fun out of it. They each have a separate gallery because they have different names. Heck, I even went so far as to do something different in each of the Sharkticon galleries just to make each gallery unique: Sea Shark has water on the toy and the background, Land Shark has NO water in the gallery, and Air Shark has no water on the toy but water in the background (as if he's flying over water or something).

If Hasbro came out with a 3 pack of Vehicon drones, each with a different name, then I'd do a separate gallery for each of them because the galleries are done by character names ... same reason why a Headmaster's head (such as Stylor) gets a gallery in addition to its main body/character (in this case Chromedome).

If you don't like this, not sure what to tell you. I think you're taking how I do this way too seriously. I'm just having a little fun, doing something special instead of just taking the easy route and dumping them all into one gallery. Just enjoy the galleries that I put countless hours of work into.

I was recalling an old argument I had regarding the 3 separate Sharkticon galleries. And no, I'm never gonna let that go.

Unfortunately, I'm lost on that reference. I've been trying for about a month now to see where this started.

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

Great job on the galleries! I appreciate all that you do with your galleries. I know I can always count on you to provide pictures of a toy that will make my decision for me.

Keep up the great work!

from the pictures it looks like the best figure in the line, just hope it doesnt feel cheaply made like Arcee. Ill be picking this guy up but not until a price drop.

I see people talking about picking this guy up when he drops in price how do u even know he's gonna be around that long he's 1 to a case chances are you might not find him at all the way hasbro has been putting out this line. I found all 3 deluxes and both voyagers and bought them up with the way gas prices are I'm saving money in the long run. Ya you may find the figure for cheaper down the road but how many times do you gotta waste your gas looking for him

Well you're mostly right, it won't be in the case assortment from wave 4, but what do gas prices have to do with buying transformers? :???:
