    Yes! It's true. There is no Prime in my collection at all.

    I've seen some good ones, obviously the MP Primes are great, Revoltech Prime I hear is amazing...

    But I've really only seen them online. I haven't had much chance to hold these things in my hands and see what is literally the BEST Optimus Prime figure. Which is one reason why I haven't gotten one... the other being the damn lambos having their servos in my damn purse!

    So, if you had to pick just ONE Optimus Prime figure as the end all be all of Optimus Primes, which would you pick? This will help me decide what Prime I should get and... how much I will need to save lol.

    from the looks of it, MP. if you do go with MP, i'd suggest waiting for MP 10 to hit TRU shelves in the States. he'll be much cheaper there than online

    MP-04 still seems like the definitive Optimus to own, regardless of MP-10's existence.

    I was thinking it would definitely need to be an MP.

    Down to...

    MP01

    MP04

    MP10

    Aside from the obviousness of MP10 being cheaper because of the US release can anyone tell me some pros and cons on the other 2?

    I know MP01 is really big... that's about it. Help a girl out!

    I don't own that many of figures of Optimus myself, but I would say the ROTF leader Prime and/or the new MP about to be released.

    If you don't mind parts-forming, RID Optimus is also very nice.

    Depends on the style you like the most.

    If you like G1ish style, then the new MP Prime would be the way to go. If you like the movie style, then one of the leader class Prime figures would be what you want. If you like the Transformers Prime series, then FE Optimus Prime would be it. If you like Animated, then Wingblade Optimus Prime be the one.

    Myself, in my own collection, I still more Optimus Primal figures then I do of Optimus Prime. If I could have any at the moment, I would go with FE Optimus Prime. If you really want to get something nice, get the all clear version of the figure.

    I think it will come down to MP. I don't really have a line collection. Aside from collecting lambos and seekers it's pretty random.

    So I guess I'm looking at MP01, MP04 or MP10.

    Should I bother with spending the money on an older one? I mean are they that good or would the MP10 do?

    Because anything can be a question if asked.

    Seriously though, it's cause I don't know what will be more awesome.

    Isn't MP01 huge? There for awesome?

    And this! Is what I need.

    What makes him epic? And is he worth the $200 or more I'll shell out on ebay or would it be just as fine to go the cheaper new one?


    EDIT: Just looked at your collection the MP Prime there is the MP01?

    The US MP-10 may be the better option if you're not looking to break the bank.

    But personally, I like the look of MP-04 better.

    MP01 IS huge and apparently awesome, but it doesn't come with a trailer, which, IMHO, is necessary if you want THE Optimus representation.

    So you're left with one of the "complete" editions, like MP-04.

    Comparing those to MP-10 you are left with a huge gimmick laden, lots of diecast TF that is a great sole display piece BUT...

    *It looks just so-so in alt mode.
    *Doesn't scale with your love, MP-12
    *Is much more costly (compared to US MP-10).
    *Has no warranty/recourse if you get a bad one.

    Your call.
