    They have "Pop" in their name so I was automatically expecting something with a tiny deformed body and a massively oversized head, so this is a pleasant surprise.

    Thank goodness. This will hopefully be a first step in addressing the dire shortage of Optimus Prime statues we've suffered for so long.

    Seems like Zeta's version of Toyworld Orion.
    an early third party toy, its over engineered and fairly annoying to transform.

    You know what'd be nice? An Optimus Prime that is as close to looking like a poseable statue but is able to transf...

    It's nice to see someone to say something positive for once on this site. I dig a cartoon inspired OPTIMUS PRIME statue, fo'sur.

    MP-01 Optimus Prime. Still my favorite Transformer toy to this day. IMO, its SO much better then MP-10! The articulation range alone, blows it out of the water. The hefty feel & the features. I have a Japanese original 2003 version, one MISB, as well as a Transformers 20th Anniversary 2004 USA "battle damaged" version . And I like my MP-10 just fine it's just not as good of a robot (again, in my opinion).

    I always liked my, I think it was Icon Heroes (maybe?) Cartoon like Optimus Prime bust statue. So I'm sure I'd be pretty fond of this new Pop culture shock statue. Bring it on PCS

    Not my thing, and I do think there is an oversaturation of Optimus Prime, in general. But, for anyone who likes statues and is looking for that level of anime-accuracy, they've got him down.

    I'm down to 5 G1 Primes:

    1) The original G1 (Various Hastak reissues)
    2) MP-1 (20th anniversary, 20th anniversary 1986 movie edition)
    3) MP-10 (Hasbro)
    4) Mega Action Series 1
    5) POTP Optimus Prime (G1 Evolution Leader Class)

    Glad to see alot of love for MP01 in this thread. all I hear is \"blah blah MP10 is the best toy ever made blah blah its so much more accurate than MP01 blah blah blah\"
    I\'ve always loved MP01 more because of the heft and just the better plastic quality in general, my MP10\'s tires are all torn and look like they went through WW2, yet my MP01\'s whom I got just a year after MP10 look brand new and untouched. plus I always have a fondness for toys that feel like they can kill or at least mortally injure someone if I through it at them.
