Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Alpha Trion with Landmine Decoy Armor Action FigureLet's protect trademarks with Alpha Trion with Landmine. He's a retool of Vector Prime with Metalhawk armor [FOTD #1,871], but doesn't do a great job of updating the original toy beyond the most superficial qualities. It's still neat - but it's another situation where you have to accept the toy for being good for what it is rather than a good update of a classic toy.

The original suit looked like a tubby dude in a goofy space suit, while the new one looks more like a bulky robot or armor for a bulky robot. The armor is Metalhawk with a new front plate and a new Prime emblem, which basically means you're getting a different-enough toy. It could be better, but it's decent.

The Landmine Prime Armor comes with jointed arms. Each arm has a 3mm fist so you can pop off the backpack gun and give him a weapon. His cream-colored cannon is similar to Metalhawk's - it can serve as a hand-held weapon or as a backpack, which makes it part of the weapon mode. The front robot plate is probably molded in cream and slathered in yellow, grey, and red paint - presumably this is where the budget went.

Transformation is incredibly easy. The inner robot goes from a "Prime Engine" to tiny robot - or also a head if you want. The robot shell can become a gun. The Alpha Trion symbol is a patch of diamonds. He has a painted face, but the front of the toy is otherwise unadorned and looks neither like Alpha Trion or the the original Landmine robot.

The inner Alpha Trion robot fails to carry over the original Landmine colors or general design. It does have grey arms and a grey head with yellow face like the original, but the sculpting and body don't match at all. He has 5 points of articulation and does what these guys normally do - stand, sit, pilot, or fill a suit. It's fun, but it's not Landmine if you had one as a kid.

For $6 it's a decent small toy, but you also have to take into consideration what a $10 Legends toy can get you, or a $17 or so Deluxe or Cyber Battalion toy. If all you have is $6, it's great and fun and a delightful addition to a figure that could use a gun - like a Power of the Primes combiner team, as they lack weapons in the combined form. It's a good stocking stuffer, a holiday present, something for any occasion really - but if you're willing to approach the $10-$20 range, this serves much less purpose other than as a thing to collect or as an accessory to outfit your other toys. I recommend it, but mostly to people who have cash to blow on toy robots without other things they want to buy.
