Love the feet transformation but overall way too simple compare to the FE. Seriously people just save your money and buy the FE. Sure it's overprice but trust me it's worth it compare to buy this piece of crap.

Yes they are the real doors.

I can't think of anything else that's worth saying. I don't think I've watched any of your reviews before, but I'll be keeping an eye out for any future ones you do. Very good, sir, your Starscream review as well. Thank you.

Garrgh! He has fake shoulders just like Powerizer Megs! Why Hasbro!?

SO happy that I managed to snag FE Bulk at a reasonable price from robotkingdom.

Yeah those shoulders aren't very good, and the Mechtech is terrible, but the rest of him isn't too bad. Better than nothing I guess. Not nearly as good as the FE, but still decent. I feel they really should have painted those windows or something though.

Honestly I feel much better about buying this one now. It looks better than i expected and id much rather buy this for $20 than spend $140 buying the FE. It's cool but I'm not spending that much on a voyager. That being said, great review.

Actually the shoulders are more show-accurate than the FE's. That being said, I think the colour of the FE shoulders is better than the black he has on the show.

Other than price, I'm hard pressed finding any reasons why I'd want this over a Takara FE.

Can't wait to get this. Like I've said before, the only problem with this figure is that there ever was a FE version in the first place. This isn't a bad toy.

PRID Optimus Prime is a good figure, actually. None of them have been bad figures (well, I just can't like Cliffjumper for one reason or another), a few of them just unfortunately came out after a slightly to moderately better version of the same character.

Really, Hasbro's biggest mistake wasn't canceling the FE line, it was releasing it in the first place knowing that they weren't going to stick with it. Otherwise, every complaint about these figures wouldn't be "it isn't as good as the FE".

Ye gods - those mech tech weapons are HORRIBLE. They were bad on the DOTM toys, but here they're just.... words fail me.

On Starscream it made no sense to have a huge brick welded to the top of the plane. It's a JET - how could it fly with what's essentially a colossal anvil strapped to one wing?

It might have made sense for Bulkhead to have a big weapon that needed muscle to haul around. But somehow, Hasbro made even THIS look out of place and wrong.

They may have had a two pronged idea here. Satisfy the older collectors by giving them a decent transforming toy. And satisfy the younger ones with a big honking weapon toy that's easy to use and has flashy lights.

It may have had the opposite effect. The younger collectors may not like the figure getting in the way of their weapon. And the older collectors seem to unanimously dislike these butt-ugly, clumsy mech-tech ripoffs ruining the look of their figures.

In this case, Hasbro didn't pull off a deft maneuver, but a DAFT one.

Agree, but I don't buy that as excuse anymore. It is like to say that if we didn't know better, we would be happy, so HasTak should never allow us to know what they are able to do because, you know, too much work... If that is the case, I welcome the competition from 3rd parties. HasTak should see all this outcry as an opportunity. Anyway, even without FE, I doubt that most people would be happy with those waste-of-plastic-weapons...

Nope, never was defending the weapons. They are garbage I toss aside never to see the light of day again (aside from Megatron's canon, it actually works and makes sense). But as for the figures themselves, they are perfectly fine figures. Simplistic enough to appease kids and parents, and show accurate enough that they should (and would again if not for FE) appease to fans.
