    My Masterpiece Prime just recently broke and looking for a replacement. Unfortunately no one here has posted a MP-01L review for comparison to other versions. Basically I'd like to know what you guys think of MP-01L and what the best version of MP Prime is.

    04 is knowen as perfect edition so nuff said right there, but mp-10 is a totally new mold to be in scale with recent mps and might be alot better.

    MP01L has no apparent mold degradation?

    Red appears to be slightly brighter....Crooked window not so crooked.

    And ther's the Final Shot stamp behind the flap on the spine.

    Really, i think that's about it.

    What happened?

    I still think MP-01 is the best.

    Yeah, they say it's fixed on MPL, but my window/doors on my Hasbro 20th MP Prime are perfect. Maybe I got lucky or it was just a MP-01/04 thing :confused: 


    Yeah, I'd like to know too.

    I'd go for the new mold, but personally i'm not even a MP guy, only have a few and i don't love them.

    I finally opened my MP04, and low and behold, crooked windows. I have both Hasbro versions and theyre perfect. Even my sons Hasbro MP is perfect.

    can confirm no crooked window's and the red is perfect on the mpl ..altho think they may have rushed putting this one together as i have a small dent on the right arm hardly noticable but still there and the left foot was not assembled properly so had to take apart to fix it

    "edit" and the piston on the left arm falls out all the time lol

    Well, that gives a bit to think about. I do wish the MP-01L came with a black blaster like Hasbro's first release. Keep the reviews/opinions coming guys ( and gals) .

    I think you should wait to see what the MP-10 looks like even if you want an mp01 or 04. If mp10 is an improved or updated Prime then there might be a lot of people looking to cash in on their old mps for the new one so you might find a good deal.

    I have Mp-01/Mp-04... and all other MP's
    except Mp-01B/Mp-04S & MP-09 :( 
    (still looking for them for a good price)

    but I know that even if I hate MP-10 being another Prime... I'll need to have it :D

    I'm pretty sure i've seen 20ths with a crooked window too.



    Owww. I thought MP04 fixed that. Sorry.


    Right window is just slightly off on mine. It's like it's 99% there, and you have to give it a little nudge for the extra 1%

    I have MP-04 and I'm totally satisfied with him. Also have the Prime 20th anniversary and I'll check him out for crooked window.
