    I'm not sure that's "what could have been." Rather "what would be cool if possible"

    And even if they could've done it, it's still not a big deal in my opinion. The one on the right only looks a slight bit better to me.

    Upscaling the head and closing in the chest really helps make a difference. Not going to complain about it any further, but if a 3P company can solve some of these nitpicks (either through add-ons or a completely KO'd fig), I'd be in.

    I really really want someone or some company to make that backpack mod that was posted a few pages ago. It was glorious

    Wait... MPM Prime doesn't have a faction symbol? That's just shitty and lazy designing! Who should TT fire over this figure??

    Someone a while back said he was a licensed vehicle. Who is he licensed under, and where is the name on the box?

    Can't tell if sarcasm or not... e__e

    Either way, Prime does have a teeny molded Autobot symbol somewhere between his pecs. It's unpainted, but it's there.

    Molded is fine. I just assumed there was nothing. That would have been pretty egregious to me.

    Well, someone was wrong. Prime was never licensed in movies 1-3 because Peterbilt never granted Hasbro licensing rights for their vehicle(s) in the movies or the toys. That's why "Peterbilt Prime" never had visible company logos on him in any media or merchandise, and never will. This toy follows suit.

    If by molded Autobot symbol you mean this:

    The basic shape of the outline is there, but there's no actual emblem at all. Without paint it's pretty much nothing. Again, just surprised that they painted Bee's (which was also on a diecast part) but not Prime's.

    Well, that's pretty shoddily done, IMO. Sigh..

    Just got my Optimus in the mail. There are 2 serial numbers discovered so far right? Which one is the one that tabs in correctly?

    And there's no symbol on the robot mode. It is quite the shitty choice. I honestly think someone on the design team should get reemed for the mistakes in this test copy that was released to mass retail.

    Transformed mine. Robot Kingdom is shipping MPM-04s that DO NOT tab in properly. Just FYI. I am so incredibly angry about this release. I want a full refund. 50 official figures and this is the first to have problems? I tried to like Bayverse figures but this is souring me heavily.
