    I don't think they'll milk this mold at all.

    Time will tell, I suppose. There's still the ROTF (with Jetfire upgrade parts) and DOTM (with jetwing backpack and cannons) versions that HasTak can use for this mold. Also the inevitable Nemesis Prime repaints.

    I'd love to see a MPM-04 Optimus Prime in the RotF Amazon Exclusive Black Version. I love the way that one looks!

    I would like to see an official MPM Prime properly painted or remold, LT's looks great, but the blue, the wrong colouration of some bits and the absolute lack of his iconic symbol on grill it's a turn off on me. (even though i'll buy it)

    Eh, Jetfire might still be his own figure. Not only would he be bigger than Optimus, but without the electronics, there's a lot more room to cram vehicle mode bulk. Especially since a MPM Jetfire wouldn't require a lot of articulation, just be stable enough to change between plane, robot, and armor.

    Guys, is it true that even the latest batch and even the TT version still has QC issues? The is the first Optimus figure I haven't bought since it came out on launch.

    New Zealand. They put out more stock this weekend. There was about 30 Bee’s and a dozen Prime’s.

    Mighta been inteeested in the rubber tires, but this price is still cheaper than that shipped.

    I thought it outclasses the ROTF leader in every way. It really brings out how outdated the ROTF leader looks now.

    Still messing up with my 2 (now 3) almost weekly.

    Maybe that explains the excessive paint chipping...

    Hmmm still no 3P even bothering to make some upgrade kits to this figure?
    At least a trailer that includes a shield and his flight tech from DOTM?
