    Chrome it, and fix it, and I'll buy it.

    Oh---and a much darker blue, like Movie Prime actually is:

    MPM-04 has like the lightest blue of any movie Prime toy, and I can't figure out why.

    You know, the price of MPM-04 is actually quite reasonable.

    But I'll be going with the Wei-Jiang version for its better quality control, durability, paint apps, and good parts tolerances.

    No, I don't know Wei-Jiang is offering all of that in their MPM-04, but Wei-Jiang has a better track record on those attributes than (ironically) Hasbro or Takara.

    While I'm happy with the official MPM-04, I'm still interested to see what the KO does to improve the figure.

    EDIT: That's looks pretty nice, I'll may buy it as well depending on the price.

    Do we know if this is 1:1 scale with MPM-04, or oversized?

    I'm actually kind of hoping for oversized. MPP-10, M-01, and (soon) their oversized Megatron need some buddies!

    Yep. For the overseas buyers it will be a bit of more because of the shipping charge

    Eh, that's okay. Scale isn't all that important to me.
