    Thank you for using the correct decal on his shoulder. First one I've seen with it.

    The TE looks knock knee'd. I just can't unsee it. I almost want to buy one though just to see if I can rip its magnificent matrix chamber out and somehow shove it into the MS.

    Very nice, I must of missed those, I've been using the cartoon clean clear back. I'll definitely have to get me some of those other ones though.

    I don't think he looks knock knee'd necessarily, my only gripe is the back of the knees in silver stands out awkwardly, if they made that barrel blue like the legs, maybe it would flow better and not draw the eye so much. Does anyone know why it needs to be silver? would it have an impact on the altmode?

    comparing him to MP36, part of me hopes they upscale the head just a slight tad. it looks too small compared to Megatron, and also for his body. just needs to be enlarged ever so slightly so as to not be AS big as Megatron, but close enough that it looks proportional to Megs and also his body and doesn't feel out of place.

    Actually, Primorion has been my MP Optimus for quite some time. He's a fantastic figure. But, now that MS Optimus is here, he'll be moved over to the Shelf of Prime.

    I have no problem either with Optimus towering over the rest of the car/van bots. He's Optimus. He should be imposing.

    There would have to be one hell of an upgrade now to beat MS Optimus. He's damned near perfection, in my opinion. And his chunkiness looks perfect with Despotron.

    TE looks like a skinny late teen bot. MS looks like a grown thick man bot.

    There's a fair number of us that always saw it and were never enamoured with mp10. It looks borderline ridiculous when it's next to a Prime with correct proportions.

    Is there any contact details for Transform Element. I've got the MS version which I'm really happy with but the TE axe is head and shoulders better than the others.

    You know, back when MP-36 dropped, there was a legion of people claiming it would never be KO'd because of how intricate and complex it was. And then multiple KOs dropped and the IT one in particular came ot be regarded as superior to the original.
    So I'm expecting that IT or THF will get on the MP-44 KO train very quickly so can we get the poll updated to include that? :)
