Hybrid Style Convoy

Wow... I know he doesn't have

Wow... I know he doesn't have the best truck mode, but it really isn't as bad as you make it out to be! Especially if you, I dunno, actually tab his arms into place, which (despite your protestations to the contrary) IS possible!

Also, what is the third Hybrid Style figure you mentioned? I was only aware of Fire Convoy and this one. (Or are you counting the black repaint of this one as a separate figure?)

Yeah, that includes the black version.

I know it is possible to get his arms tabbed in correctly, but it doesn't make him look that much better to me, when I actually pull it off. That aside, overall, he's a solid toy. It'd probably be a bigger deal if this was the only G1 Prime to be had, but with so many others out there, all with perfectly fine truck modes, and this being one of the cheapest, I can deal.

If we're talking letter grades, I'd probably go with B+, maybe A -, but that's because of the bonus if you have both versions.

Holy crap, I had no idea it

Holy crap, I had no idea it was that small.

I remember wanting this back around when it came out (although I have no idea why), and now I'm glad I missed out in it. I don't remember how big I was expecting him to be, but I'm sure "Action Master" wasn't the scale I had in mind!
