Looks good for a super bright cartoony budget version of the figure. Next to the Takara version, though, it just looks like a miscolored KO.

Although overall I think they're pretty close...considering the significant price difference.

Don't care if the blue is dark or not, it still looks great! Coming on word that this might be a wide release also bodes well for seeing a good price on it. Now instead of $100 I'm seeing a potential for $80-$90, even if that means waiting for it to go on sale somewhere.

Yeah, that's a must buy Like the bold colour scheme, love the painted eyes. I can live with the interior of the trailer not being painted. I might even spray it myself.My Sales Thread. 3rd Party, Classics, Universe, Henkei and more riches for the discerning Transformers fan. Need a Green Giant 'derp' head

I`ll put my vote at Takara, I hate that light blue...sorry....Sig pictures are to be no larger than 40KB in file size and should be no larger than 300 pixels in height and 500 pixels wide - 2005 Staff
and I believe this will really being a regular release instand of TRU only...

My "Battle Damaged" MP-01 Will always be Optimus Prime in my collection. I intend on getting Hasbro's MP-10 as an upgrade for Convoy, my Vintage Powermaster Optimus Prime.That is a Tasty Burger!
There's a lot I like about MP-10, including his flexibility and Dearth of accessories (Trailer FTW) But MP-01 is still taller, heavier, has individual finger articulation, is less streamlined than his successor, and mine has the shorter smokestacks. Makes MP-01 a much better upgrade body for my Reissue Generation 1 Optimus Prime. MP-10 is the upgrade body for Convoy, my vintage Powermaster Optimus Prime, because He's smaller, lighter, more flexible, more streamlined, and more Japanese-looking than his predecessor (when I first got Powermaster Optimus Prime, my first comment was "wow, this guy looks SO Japanese" since he reminded me of the Robot Santa from The Simpsons)
(yes, I realize the "Japanese Version" of Powermaster Optimus Prime is Super God Ginrai, but I work with what I have and I don't have Super God Ginrai, and he's more expensive)
He also has the longer smokestacks like my vintage Powermaster Optimus Prime.

So basically the overall color scheme for the Takara version is darker. The trailers look the same.Check out my GI Joe and Marvel Legends sales!
