    Hello,

    I just purchased a 20th anniversary dvd prime on ebay ( i know i know, it's not as good as the Takara MP1 or MP 4 or the first 20th anniversary prime but it was cheap!). I was wondering how off red is the cab? I read on some reviews that it is orange. Is it as orange as the Optimash Prime?

    thanks.

    It's actually a nice shade of red, imo. Brighter than the other versions of him, but I wouldn't call it orange.

    It's definitely red. I actually think it's a very nice version of the figure!

    It's a nice shade of red. I actually prefer the colors of the DVD version, I just hate the lack of chrome.

    I found it interesting that DVD Prime and MP-04 have the same characters on the wrist communicators. Anyway, I took pity on DVD Prime and gave hm some longer and stronger smoke stacks like I did with 20th Prime.

    The red isn't that bad, I also bought it 'cuz it was cheap. Well worth it for a sweet-looking Prime! I like it a lot actually.

    I'll go ahead and say that I found it to be a bit more orange when compared side-by-side with Takara Prime. Takara Prime has a metallic red, which I found to be very appealing. DVD Prime was a bit to orange for me. So right now I am trying to sell my DVD prime and keep the masterpiece. However if you're content with DVD prime...then let it be and don't concern yourself with the takara one.

    I remember getting mine. Shortly after christmas I stopped into a TRU and there he was, on clearence for $25. A shame that such a great toy be reduced to the clearence bin but my wallet wasn't about to argue. He now leads my Classics Autobots against my Masterpiece Starscream led Classics Depecticons in my classics display. Need to find an MP megs for cheap though. Hell I'd take a broken one and try to fix it if possible.
