I recently watched the entire season 2 of Transformers Prime and I gotta say, the stories are way better than season 1, plus the kids aren’t as annoying anymore. So I decided to hunt down the figures, it wasn’t too hard since they restocked (with the exception of Soundwave and Breakdown). Plus the cast is somewhat limited so it’s not too hard to complete. I’m still undecided if I want to open these as I’m not really feeling the Beast Hunters theme.
Big thanks to Comicsyndrome over at Ebay Ph for the great deal on Breakdown.
For the unfamiliar, Hasbro changed their classification of figures in this line.. Instead of the usual Deluxe and Voyager classifications, the Deluxes are now Revealers, while the Voyagers are now Powerizers. Go figure…
From the reviews I’ve seen, the Hasbro version seems better, as the Takara version had so additional many holes for the Arms Micron gimmick, it seems off.
I wasn’t too impressed with Ultra Magnus in the show, he hardly did anything except for becoming a teaser headline for the opening of the final season
Darksteel is a repaint of Grimwing, while Skylynx is a repaint of Skystalker. Both Darksteel and Skylynx appeared in the series finale movie “Predacons Rising”.
