    Any difference between that and the first MP-01?

    And I think the communicator screens are different, like MP-04.

    The QC on mine was terrific. Identical in every way to the original. I believe KA is right, just warehouse overstock.

    Didn't the recent US "movie" release have the new communicator stickers as well?

    Edit--also, who is on Ultra Magnus's communicator?

    Where can you get one of those? I would like one to paint to a nemesis. If it is too much, I'll just go to walmart and get the 20th for 50.00

    Ultra Magnus has a green digital sine wave on his left arm and I believe it is Prime on his right arm, but I have not looked in a while. And yes, DVD Prime has the new stickers (Grimlock & Megs?).

    They're the same price as the original wave (about $90).

    If you see a sealed MP-01 for sale, this is probably it. Until the Hong Kong re-release came out, the original wave of MP-01 was in VERY short supply.
