    Which is the best Mini Masterpiece Prime to get?
    I really like how Takara's Hybrid-Style Prime has a trailer and all, but Igear's seems to replicate Takara's MP04 pretty well. I don't care for transparent model, just one that replicates my MP04 pretty well.
    Who has both and who can post pics comparing the two or three models?
    I have MP04 Prime, G1 Prime, and 2 WST Primes. Looking to get a smaller version of MP04.

    Thank you!

    As far as I know, there is only one smaller sized replica for MP04, and that is iGear Faith Leader. I have PP01 v2, and it is an awesome figure ! IMO, there is no other Prime available in this size that looks so accuarate to G1 Prime.

    Do you have both MP04 and PP01? If so, can you post pics? Plus, is there a trailer available for Igear's Prime?

    I do, but my MP04 is in it's box, and we're decorating for Christmas, (stuff is everywhere lol ! ) so if someone doesn't get around to it before me, I'll do so in a couple days. They look identical though, just that Faith Leader is smaller than MP04, about the same height as MP Grimlock.

    Hybrid style is only about as tall as an activator... Almost exactly as tall as the animated optimus activator

    What's the articulation like on the Hybrid? I like'em small. :) 
    Although I'm sure I'll eventually end up with all of them as it's fun having the same figure in different sizes.

    That picture is cute, it's like Papa Prime with Junior Prime! :D 
    Need the Hybrid next to it for Baby Prime. LOL!

    Oh, one more thing. Are the fingers on PP as articulated as MP04?

    Hybrid is awesome, articulation is as good as MP Prime. And yes, Faith Leader have the same fingers articulation as MP Prime.

    Sweet! So which one to get next? I've already got MP04 and I simply love it! I've seen the hybrid available on ebay at reasonable prices, but have not seen Igears version. Where can I buy Igears? I don't want their clear, evil, nemesis, or whatever. Just their basic Prime.

    If you plan to get them all eventually, I'd say go for Faith Leader first. It's still available at iGear website, and you never know, when he's gone his value might rise on the secondary market making it harder to buy. Hybrid Prime on the other hand will pretty much stay the same value considering he's quite old already.
