    Recently, a professional Chinese tf customizer "问题不大" and his team, have designed and released a new version of DMK01 Optimus prime figure. Judged by the pictures, many parts were re-designed to improve its accuracy to the character's CGI model. The set is currently being sold on taobao.com and you can find the order page by searching "Prime 2.0."

    It has yet been confirmed whether the set will be made available for oversea buyers.

    That looks pretty good. I'd be interested into buying it from a trusted store.

    Looks nice, I'd buy one for a decent price. Always bothered me how his chest wasn't angular on the original release. Head looks nicer too, as well as the arms

    Not sure if I'd be interested. I love DMKs, but I already got mine custom painted, and have a second one for backup. This doesn't look like a big enough change to warrant paying what I assume will be a shitload of money. Would've preferred add ons or something.

    You can find it by searching "Prime 2.0" on taobao. It's going for about $200. The figure is pre-built and fully painted.

    I'm almost done working on my DMK. $200 is too much for me to spend on this one, but if I could get it cheaper I'd consider buying it selling my original...

    I can't read Chinese, is this page here just selling extra weapons?
    http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.4wiDz4&id=39859903528&ns=1#detail

    And is this page for the entire model?
    http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.172.4wiDz4&id=39967978835&ns=1#detail
    When I run it through a conversion, 870 Yuan (is that correct?) comes out to about $140 US. I'd have to check shipping and stuff, if I could get it, but for that price I think I'd go for it...

    $200 is a lot of scratch considerin gthe real one (which is different but not better or worse looking) could be had for $60 at one point in time not too long ago. The fact that its asssembled and painted may be a big draw though. i'd say I would pay $150 for it if it was done right.

    I was looking at this seller earlier. It's 1280 yuan.

    This one looks legit because it has a lot of pics and descriptions. The 870 one looks a bit fishy to me because it has only one pic from the other seller and no transactions were made, whereas the other seller has sold 76 sets.

    Fully painted and everything, it looks pretty damn good. Just can see spending that much on it since I still feel the DMK has weird proportions.

    Wouldn't mind seeing those Cannons for a decent price though.
