5.0 out of 5 stars
Best Transformers figure ever, 17 July 2009

Seems despite the figure from the first movie being pretty damn good, even Hasbro themselves felt like they could do better the second time round and they were right. I can't believe how much improved in accuracy this figure is. It's slightly bigger too and more posable with much less truck parts hanging off his back. Just overall much tidier and looks great. The truck mode too is an improvement looking far more seamless and even has the back of the truck done too.
Transformation to truck form is a little complex and there was only one bit I struggled with but I soon got the hang of it and have no problem whatsoever.
Lights and sounds are fun and it's nice to see his proper voice announce his name in robot form. Another great feature is that the figure combines with Leader Class Jetfire where Jetfire sorta becomes body armor/jetpak to Prime and makes the figure even more huge.
This is simply the most impressed I've ever been with a Transformers figure and it's worth every penny I paid.
Oh yeah, ignore the photo of the figure at the top. Hasbro's figure photography once again making the figure look far worse than it is and mistransformed.
The only things better on the 2007 model are that it had articulated fingers and rubber tyres. Everything else is far far better on this figure and it's easily by far the best Transformers figure I've owned since the series began in the 80's.
