    Are plastic quality the same for both figures? I heard DVD prime used inferior plastic, is this true?

    Thanks

    The plastic is not inferior - just not as fancy.

    MP and 20th have chromed pieces whereas DVD has those same pieces in gray.
    MP and 20th have eyes that are blue chrome whereas DVD has flat blue eyes.

    thanks, I'll probably just get a dvd prime for now and get the orignal 20th prime later. MP01's price is pretty ridiculous right now.

    It's probably not going to get any better, with MP01s getting rarer by the day.

    I knew I should have jumped on that one when it was $90.

    2 or more times the price as the re issue... just because of a different box, paint and some chrome? No thanks. I think I will be happy enough with the Hasbro version.

    You can get some long chromed smokestacks for $10, they're well spent and it does improve the looks on DVD Prime.
