So just to confirm here, the 'fire breath' is just an LED in his mouth. No sparking gimmick I guess?

If it sparked, I might be tempted to pic it up.

Just the LED, they could have at least added some sounds.

Yeah, when he comes out over here I'm getting one. That said, I kinda wish they'd designed his missile launcher things so they could clip onto the orange parts on his flank in dragon mode so he wouldn't have those orange bits breaking up the black on his body.

Darn, I was really hoping for a shriek, like Cybertron Scourge.

I saw this toy in box at Kmart last night... not convinced to buy one since I have the Voyager. Colourwise the Ultimate version is superior to the Voyager, no doubt's there. But designwise I'm unconvinced that it's worth getting. One thing I really like about the Voyager is that they avoided making it another "stand up quadraped" TF (i.e. where the forelegs become the beast appendages are also the robot appendages). The forelegs become the robot arms, sure, but the hind legs actually stow away and the rear part of the body transforms into the robot legs. Granted there does appear to be some transformation involved with making the hind legs into the robot legs, but it doesn't look to be quite as clever as the Voyager.

Holy moly this guy doesn't look too bad, I haven't been keeping up with any of the new PRIME figures recently but I'm quite impressed!
