    I was pretty mad my Takara Optimus MPM was in truck mode.

    On rare occasions I transform my figures, but it does mean something to me that they at least can transform. I know that's strange, but I mean, I don't even like this Optimus design that much, straying too far away from things I associate as Optimus Prime, but I am fascinated at both AA and UT's attempts at making it work in toy form. Enough so to buy both.

    Fig looks cool.

    All the hater comments regarding the review and or reviewer aren't very cool.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this guy in person and seeing how he stacks up to unique toys version. I can't really think of many unique toys releases in my collection that have let me down. The AA Firage on the other hand has some Detractors even if the figure overall is somewhat popular.

    I'm probably going to add the UT version to my personal collection but still eager to see the comparisons.

    Depending on the situation, I don't transform my figures either (I love the idea of keeping them pristine)... I display my figures in robot mode or alt-mode or both (if I have two copies)

    My el Cid was AT MY HOUSE while I was at work but I got an undeliverable notice for some reason :(  I could have had him tonight! Instead I might get him tomorrow. I will try to give you guys my first impressions but seeing as it’s Valentine’s Day I might be busy ;)

    Where did you order it from? Every site I've checked still says "preorder."

    You know that magic feeling you got watching Peru Kill materialize out of seemingly nowhere, with satisfying movements and solid parts? ... this is not that feeling.

    He ordered from showzstore. Unforntely for you CNY starts now and they can’t ship out orders anymore. Pretty much entire China shuts down for 2 weeks.

    But if you live in Europe like me you could order from Tfs express which got him in stock.

    How did this go from long fingernails and shitty reviews into a mostly consistent agreement that this thing does not look fun.

    By the way, isn't KFC behind this product?

    Frustration happens when you have a "Masterpiece" figure that won't tab-in properly, for the umpteenth time, while doing a review (livestream - maybe). :)

    I mean, ha gave false info. and shown a false KO of the MPM prime (better painted), so i would say his review wasn't needed to take seriously from the start.

    In theory Chosen Prime is expecting theirs any day now. If true, they beat CNY.

    I'm watching with great anticipation! We'll see.

    Someone at some point said something like this is Origami Prime and having seen the video now I have to agree. Almost definitely not buying this thing.

    But there haven't been any signs of Challenger in a while...
