    I am digging your reviews. Simple and a very easy read. I do not know whether I am getting this Optimus, but he looks nice in those colors.

    Is Spike proportional to Prime? He seems pretty small, I wonder how is he going to compare against Sideswipe.

    I just updated the thread with more pictures, per reader feedback :) 

    Thanks Tcracker! I think the colors are just outstanding on this figure, really defines him. Makes me wonder if Takara will eventually release one in cartoon colors as well, given their tendencies to milk their Convoy molds.

    I mentioned it in my review. Personally he seems a bit small compared to Optimus in vehicle mode, and is a tad to big for him in robot mode, particularly when you compare him to the cartoon.

    edit: apparently spike and prime's scale varies a lot.

    crossing my fingers that the red on this prime doesn't fade very quickly. ive notice a lot of recent red transformers loosing their vibrant rather quickly.

    Love the review and this mold. Have MP-10 but will pick this up for sure if I see it in the wild. FYI there is a triangular flap on the underside of his elbow that folds down in vehicle mode and fills in the space behind the front wheel wells.

    I REALLY wish they had made this available at the Entertainment Earth booth at Comic Con this year. I'm glad to hear there are no QC issues or anything on your release. Thanks for the review.

    No instructions with the figure kinda sucks though.

    Thanks WSX :)  Really had a great time doing it. Just so rare that I manage to get a toy first. Don't think there's as much excitement doing it when you're not the first hehe :) 


    It does, but easily found a remedy hehe. Kind of strange not to have an instruction in a high end toy. Don't know if it's just mine or this is a widespread problem. Don't think I'm missing any accessories either.

    It looks really nice. I'm keeping MP-04, but I will get this as well once it drops in the US.

    The package should include Prime, his Trailer, his energy axe, his rifle, Roller, Spike, and The Matrix.

    Yeah all those are accounted for. Just the instructions then. I even checked the small box inside the box. Empty.

    Missing instructions would drive me nuts to the point of returning it. Not that I need them, but its a part of a high end TF that I should have had...

    Well I'm not that OC about instructions, but I did find it a bit weird for them to be missing, especially for a complicated toy. I wonder if this is also the case for some other MP Primes.

    As someone who owns MP04, is there any compelling reason to own this?

    Yes absolutely yes. Does many things better than the first mold.

    Looks awesome! Though due to the fact that there are no TRUs within reasonable driving distance, I'll have to pay $250+ for one off eBay...but this looks better than the Takara version so I guess it's worth the same price.
