    Hello there. After seeing the MP Ramjet review, I splurged and purchased myself one of these awesome MP Conehead seekers. So now, I'm back in the game of collecting TF's. However, since space is very limited for me, I'm only going to stick with the MP line-up. No other TF's for me period.

    A few weeks or a month ago I sold my beloved MP04. But when looking for a new one, I've noticed that it's going for around $300 which is more than I want to spend on one figure.

    So my question is this. Is the MP-1 the same exact Cab as what I had with MP-04? I assume MP-04 just included the trailer? With my limited space, I'm not even sure I need the trailer, especially when it seems to cost $200 more for the trailered version. Plus, there's the aftermarket trailers to consider as well if I ever decided I want to include the trailer.

    Basically are there any differences between MP-1 and MP-04 cab/robot wise?

    I believe it's the exact same cab.

    Thank you, but would like this to be confirmed. If it is identical, I'm going to get MP1 this summer.

    How much would you be willing to pay for MP-01? I have one sealed I might let go of.

    He's just suggesting that MP-10 is another alternative if you want to get a new Prime.

    I just want whatever is identical to the MP-04 that I had recently, but without the trailer.
    Long-stacks and all.

    Not sure yet. As I just splurged on MP Ramjet, I'm going to have to wait a while before I can spend again.

    I have both MP-01 and MP-04 and can confirm that they are EXACTLY the same, right down to the flawed chest windows that never seem to completely close properly. MP-04 is simply MP-01 repacked with a huge trailer in a larger box with different art work.

    I have an MP-04. I spray painted the ion rifle black.

    I'm pretty sure even if there were minor differences, you would be more than happy with MP01 or MP10. I believe only the US version have short smokestacks.

    There's no difference on my MP-01 or MP-04. I preferred the MP-01 myself. Satomi, did you do anything special to paint your ion rifle? I can't find my black one to my US release anywhere and it's driving me nuts!

    Not really. I just used Krylon camo black. It's a very durable primer. A few coats (make sure not to overspray) and then I sealed it with Future Floor Finish.

    Before that, I used the rifle from MP-02, but decided to sell it.

    I just used MP-02's gun for my MP-01, and ordered several extra black replicas for my MP-04 that some third party made. Never liked the original gray gun we got or the black & blue one that came with the US version.
