    Japanese version has no battle damage paint and the long smoke stacks, the second version Mp 04 has the Trailer. But other than the trailer, the only diffrence is paint applications.

    I would suggest MP-04 ONLY if you have the extra dough and really want a transforming trailer. If not then MP-01>Hasbro 2004> Hasbro DVD>
    But that also goes in order of price as well. Good luck, it's a great figure!

    Habro 04 prime has short stacks and "battle damage" Black marks on his chrome grill arm and chest, while takara's MP01 and 04 are "clean" with no battle damage and long stacks. -ace

    Get MP-04 if you're planning for Optimus Prime. Its got a trailer and its worth the money.

    The trailer opens up into a type of repair bay, battle station. It holds his weapons and stuff. It's really cool and I like mine, but it adds on anywhere from 50 to 80 dollars to the price. Check out a couple on ebay for some pics. But don't get(if your gonna get the trailer) the justitoys version if you want it to transform. Theirs is just a scale trailer to prime.

    I got mine for $50 before shipping, but you might find a deal since 04 came out. But the high price of 04 made getting a trailer a bit harder and caused a shortage of trailers, customs/justitoys.
    (insert shameless plug here) I have one from Justitoys for sale in my BST tread.

    Another thing, beware of shipping scalpers. There's an MP-04 on right now with a 165 starting bid-really good but 83 bucks for shipping, so becarefull and take your time looking.

    no problem. And my best advise is to hold off for the Mp-04. It is worth it. Ask around the BST thread and set up a wanted thread of your own, you might get some one how needs to sell one and you'd most likely get it for a helluva lot less then ebay. Good luck!
