    There are no KOs with the Long Life Design logo on the box.

    I have that reissue but not with me. One thing with all the reissue cassettes is they have their production date clearly visible, it's a letter and four digit code, not sure where Buzzsaw's is located though (his might not have been visible).

    Btw, @BWfan86 , I don't know if anyone's claimed that MP-10 can't hold his rifle with two hands, I've done it many times over the years and posted shots. It's the scene in The Movie we're talking about, where he's mowing down Decepticons, his rifle has a second handle and he's holding both handles in his hands. Might be able to better recreate that with MPOV3, I hope! Having that Sunstreaker style wrist articulation will not only allow Optimus to be more expressive with his hands, but it'll help him aim his gun better, too.

    Yup, though one thing I'm not a fan of with MP-10 is how his shoulders have to 'droop' to really get the proper two-handed pose. Butterfly shoulders will be amazing on an Optimus Prime

    Some really old grainy mobile shots showing what MP-10 can do:

    Still some great poses in him, but no one's denying that. MP-10 is still amazing.

    BADASS. Yes, definitely agree. As much as I'm dying for OPV3, MP-10 is an incredible figure that stands on his own and a genuine landmark in our favorite line. In fact, he was the cornerstone for years! A part of me will miss see whatever new carbot in the obligatory shot rolling out of his trailer, but I'm looking forward to seeing them roll out of the new guy, too!

    Thanks guys. The production stamp shows c2017 which makes sense. As this is the Long Life version and for other reasons you highlighted like the sharper paint lines it would seem that this is legit :) 

    I’m still interested to know if anyone else has the Long Life reissue with the rectangles. @Sam - perhaps you could check whether yours has them when you next reunited with the rest of your collection.

    that's it. I can't keep it in any longer. Every single time a new MP is announced, I weep in sadness. Why can't Takara come to their sense and give the fans what they really want? Why must Lucifer taint the hearts of good men? Oh wow, look! It's masterpiece Jazz or Mirage or Hound or Dingle or Dongle! This famdom deserves the best.

    Why can't Takara just make Masterpiece Torca.

Seriously, I need Megatron, but I know I'm gonna have to start saving if I want that delicious Purple T-Rex.

    Part One of fixing Inferno was successful. The broken peg has been removed from the nozzle without damaging the chrome.
