    The forward/backward leg movements are terrifying!

    yeah. Once I get settled at my new place, I'm seriously going to disassemble his lower half and grease those joints up.

    Well I bought this guy only because he was no where to be found besides BBTS. They had one left. Should I have got him, no, did I get him yes. Sold out everywhere, which is pretty amazing. I'm surprised.

    Just wait for when MAS-02 Megatron comes out. With everyone pretty much liking this guy, great quality and a decent price. I'm fairly certain Megs is going to sell out even faster.

    I\'m very much in love with this figure.  As more of a passive TF fan i\'ve always wanted just a massive Prime, and possibly a few others.  This filled that want for me perfectly.   If I were to pick a flaw, it actually wouldn\'t be the lack of transformation.  It would be that his Ion Blaster doesn\'t have an LED light.   Do any of you guys have any tips for perhaps attaching one within the barrel?

    Did anyone else's matrix piece come loose inside the packaging before they even opened their MAS-01?

    Will be interesting to see if any of the customizers will repaint theirs with a nice kandy red (like a Hot Toys Iron Man). I feel that's the only knock against this figure. That the hue of red does not "pop".

    I quite like the red paint. I disagree about the "pop" - as due to it's metallic sheen, in good light it does pop. Admittedly it's a little pale in shade for what we expect for "Optimus red", but in the right light it can be pretty close. I think it fits will with the rest of the color on the piece.

    that said, someone with skills will make this thing absolutely sick. I saw a set of pics somewhere I'll try to locate.

    I think that is my biggest problem @bad andy . The shade is just too pale. Don't get me wrong though, I still love mine :)

    If and when they release a more vividly colored version I'll be getting rid of my V1.
