TFC Primary School, PS-01 Primars

Hey everybody, here is my picture review of this latest product from TFClub.

EDIT: Feb 22, 2011. GUNS! and more pics! See end of post.

TFC Primary School, PS-01 Primars



Lets start with the vehicle mode. It's a neat little compact cute version of Movie Optimus Prime, with a paint scheme more resembling Prime from, TF Prime. Ok, just cause it has no flames. The vehicle mode holds together relatively well, although the rear end sometimes splits apart, and sometimes the rear wheel is lower to the ground than the middle wheel, causing that wheel to hover.

All tires are made of rubber, a nice touch!
In case you are wondering, it does roll. :highfive:



Here he is in robot mode. A slightly more complex transformation than his cousin, Disney Label Optimouse Prime.




Here he is, demonstrating his lightup gimmick. Just press a button on the top of your head, and horray! Lighty eyes! The last pic is over-exposed in the dark to show you that his chest kinda-sorta lights up as well. Like he has a tiny little Matrix in there! Nice effect.



He also has a faceplate accessory, a nice addition to have that removable.

Articulation, this bot has quite a bit of it! Head swivel, waist swivel, shoulder ball, elbow hinge, thigh ball, thigh swivel, ball jointed front part of foot. The only thing he's really missing is a knee.




He has Movie Brand Arm Blades of Death! These little accessories just clip onto the back of his hand. I like this little addition. You can also store the blades on his back when not in use. These do not affect Transformation.



He has universal peg holes for hands (and on the side of his head.. O_o) for arming him to the teeth, like so! :D



Did I forget the articulated eyebrows? My favorite part of this bot! Here he is in "Somebody stole my Matrix :(" mode. My other pics had him in ANGRY FACE mode and "Meh, normal" face.

Just move those little grey things on top of his head to move the eyebrows.



Lastly, I leave you with a side profile show of him, to show where all the truck pieces go. It's a little holey back here, but it still does alright.

All in all, this is a great toy! It completely lived up to my expectations of it.

So, why not give little Primar a chance? Add this cute little jem to your collection! ... ...



UPDATE!

So... Some of you said 'I wish he had guns...' Well, I did too. Until I noticed something! His gas tanks come off, and his smoke stacks come off to form...


Awesomeness!
Ok, it isn't the greatest set of guns ever, and they kinda don't like to sit in his hands... But they work :p

What else can you do with these guns? Anything you want to! Such as...


No comment >.>

SIZE COMPARISON TIME! My battery died after two pics, so... I hope you all have a Breacher :)



Also, Kamen Rider OOO meets Primar. "WTF IS THAT!?"



Done for now :D

Re: TFC Primary School, PS-01 Primars

Goddam that's one cute little prime guy... Did the packaging indicate if they were making anymore characters? And can you stick him next to a common figure for an idea of scale?

Awesome review though, thanks!!

Re: TFC Primary School, PS-01 Primars

I knew there was something I was missing! I will take some comparison shots when I get home. I am out for the whole day today though..

To give you guys reference, he's about as tall as an average Scout, but heavier/bulkier (due to the head XD)

Having the electronics and rubber tires really make the price seem a bit more realistic.

Some of the ball joints are loose, but you expect to see that in a lot of Hasbro products.

Seriously the most annoying thing about this, and the Targetroids were, there was a lot more molding flash than you would hope. But, that is easily cut off and filed down. And I am making it sound like a bigger deal than it is. Really, it's not that bad, it's just slightly worse than Hasbro. The plastic is different, it seems harder than whatever Hasbro uses.

All in all, if I had to judge the Devastators potential quality by this one toy... I think Devy will be money well spent!
