    I originally posted this in the radicons section but only got one reply so I'll try it here since I'm looking for feedback from you guys.

    First off since I'm not 100% sure on the proper names for the two Hasbro primes so I'll define them the way I see them. MP-01 = Takara/Tomy, 20th Anniversary = Die-cast Hasbro Prime, DVD Edition = Plastic Hasbro Prime.

    I'm going to do a MP Nemesis Prime repaint. I was planning on doing it with a junker DVD edition I was expecting from Lion, but it turns out he actually sent me a 20th Ann instead! I also have a DVD edition junker coming in from another forum member. Now I have a dilemma. I already have a 20th Ann prime. But with these two junkers I can do a couple of things. I can complete the DVD edition and use it for a Nemesis Prime repaint (giving me a plastic nemesis prime), Complete the 20th Ann and use it for a Nemesis Prime (giving me a die-cast nemesis prime), or patchwork the two together and make a MP-01 (ie diecast Prime with no battle damage), then get another junker to complete and make a plastic Nemesis Prime.

    What would you do?

    I could be wrong, but DVD Prime has an equal amount of die-cast as MP-01 and 20th Anni' Prime, the difference is the deco.

    I _was_ pretty sure the dvd edition was all plastic. I guess I don't know now.

    That's correct. I have both, both have die cast.
