I thought this figure was getting a mass release after all?

It can get tricky since there have been other Hasbro MP Optimii as well as TRU exclusives, but the clarification would make it apparent that you're reviewing a figure that hasn't been reviewed by anyone else yet.

Keep up with more reviews, it seems like you have it down pretty good!
hmm, think thread title is fine. The other Hasbro MP primes were known as 20th anniversary or DVD edition. Plus, I'm sure majority of people won't be thinking of the old version when pics of the new one has been practically everywhere.

One question- can he sit? Honestly, I like to pose figures on my shelf looking either natural or sometimes relaxed, and I wanted to know if the hip joints allow for a proper sitting position. MP01 can sit rather easily, and if this one can, I'll buy it on sight. If not, I'm not sure.
"It is only logical, as I gaze upon the spark of this femme-bot, that I guide my dexterous manipulator and apply additional servos to the task of making it stronger, so that she may comprehend a femme-bot's expected role. Logic dictates."

I echo OP's comments. you did a VERY good job for your 1st review. Nice camera shots as well, Although I would zoom out just a bit to include the ENTIRE figure, just so we can see the feet and such in poses. The only reason im nitpicking is because I hope you do more!

This is REALLY alleviating my urge to own the older DVD Prime. I think when I get this I will forget about that one for a bit. I have to say, this looks alot better than the MP version in bot mode at least. The colors are VERY nice.

He can't fully sit as the thighs can't bend at a 90 degree angle.
It's my only criticism of this toy. They should have made the hip joints extend a bit to give him a wider range, like some SOC toys.

Ah that's what I get for not looking at enough MP10 reviews and for not having instructions Thanks!

Plus, I'm a huge sucker for diecast

BTW I've been living vicariously through you from your pics. I want this, like, NOW.
I'm going to take some more in a while and update this thread because...
