    Which do you all prefer? I mean the whole deal, gimmicks, tranformation, alt, robot, extras in general, which does it best? I've heard conflicting statements, and I was just wondering what the general consensus was. Thanks.

    These two aren't in the same category at all, so this is a pretty odd battle.

    If money is no object, go with MP-04. Leader Prime is great, but it's no Masterpiece.

    I was hoping that posters would include their rationale for their conclusions.

    MP Prime wins this battle. But here is how I see it.

    Robot mode: MP Prime wins
    Vehicle mode: Movie Prime
    Transformation: Movie Prime
    Electronics: MP Prime (I don't like sound in my toys)

    They're completely different toys of completely different models, at very different price points.

    Ditto. It's kinda like being given the choice between a Mini Cooper and an Aston Martin. Of course I'm probably gonna go with the Aston Martin, but that's not to say the Mini's without it's own charm.

    Leader Prime is awesome, but he's certainly not a Masterpiece. Don't get me wrong, I love him, but it's really hard to compare the two.

    But if I could only get one, it'd be MP01 or MP04 (or 20th for that matter)

    He is of course G1 accurate and a marvel of engineering. I don't know anyone who regretted buying MP Prime. He is all kinds of awesome

    Leader Prime.

    MP is just so, bland, unexciting, and... boxxy. Plus the vehicle mode stinks. I have 20th Prime, and he's really only there to complement MP-05.

    Masterpiece Prime if you have the Money. But if you can get both. I really like TFTM Prime he is well detailed and has nice articulation.

    This is kind of how I felt after fiddling with a friend MP-01. Leader Prime felt more dynamic and fun, but I'm not an expert, hence me making this topic.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I took MP Convoy off the shelf, packed him back in his box and stuffed it in the cupboard the moment I got Leader Prime. The MP just looks so bland and unimpressive next to the movie version.

    I have to go with MP, not movie. MP is super hefty, poseable, nostalgic but perfectly updated, and just looks great. Now, I will say that for alt modes, Movie Prime wins. I also like Movie primes transformation. So, I guess alt mode goes to Movie Prime and robot mode goes to MP, but both are great and I care for robot mode just a bit more, so MP wins for me.

    He was agreeing with you dude. Quoted For Truth?

    I think they are both great, but in different catagories. I still prefer MP.

    Heheh...when I first saw QFT a couple years ago I thought it meant "Quit F*cking Talking"

    Or does it...?

    Anyway, I can't pick between MP Prime and Leader Prime because they are both completely different toys that represent different depictions of the character. I think Robovision vs. Leader is a better argument.
