I have the WJ/BA Optimus Prime, and he's super solid.
Quick question... For this figure, is it mp10 sized or OS?
Is it supposed to be an original mold or another modified version of the studio series?
Just wondering where it would fit it in my collection.
I ended up ordering TW’s since I had the deluxe PO’d at $170. The QC for the standard as far as I can tell is worse than deluxe since it was released earlier. Idk, it hasn’t turned me off as all of it is pretty small stuff just really vocal.
everyone will say it’s an original mold, and it does look like one, but It’s based off MP10. If you look at it’s transformation hinges, it’s literally MP 10 just with new surface details and an extra hinge or two. It is in OS scale as well, so it’s much larger than MP sized.
Where did you get to keep the deluxe preorder for $170? That's how much mine was, until Baba actually got them in and said shipping was going to be $60 more.
Showz. Those guys are great and in most cases, unless the 3p orders them to change it, will keep your PO’s locked in.
Gah! The one time I split hairs to save $5 and DIDN'T go with ShowZ
So according to ShowZ, he's a little taller than 12.5". Sooo....
Serious question, not an attack, how on earth did you come to that conclusion? Specifically which pictures or visible features are you basing that off of, because I can't see it at all
Looking at the seem lines and positioning of everything. The wheels flip up into the chest, the waist and legs wilt tilt and rotate to form the back of the truck similar to MP 10, just without compressing the legs as far as I can tell in order to fold the feet in. The head with flip backwards rather than forwards like MP 10 leaving the flap on top. The arms will form the sides and back of the truck. The front lights and bumper parts will fold into the back, just like MP 10. The front windows have hinges and split open just like MP10 and will most likely have part of the bumper fold into there as well. It’s just mp10’s transformation with an extra hinge or two here and there to hide truck pets with detailing.
could be wrong of course, but, based on that, I’m thinking it’s a re-skinned MP 10
Update picture M09 from TransFans
That back is gorgeous!! I seriously can't wait to get him!!
same and totally agree with you bro !!! I also want to get it right away in my hands !! M09 is really a cool toy in price and proportion compared to TW, although my expectation of 3A-style standbases doesn't include the packaging ... hehehe, but it's still given axe and besides, there seems to be a connector part when it becomes a truck mode to combine it with MPP10 containers (though not so important this axe for me) but no problem because M09 is still released and still alive !!!
I want to see the manual...... please....
My guess his transformation will be like ss38. He’s looking very much alike in those new pics.
I agree about his proportions, I personally think that he's well balanced. No parts of him look like they're too big to fit with the rest of him.
Yea, a stand base would be nice, but beggars can't be choosers lol. But I personally don't care about the hitch being a partsforming piece. I'm sure that it's an optional piece.
And honestly, I'm usually one that doesn't care about weapons that were never in the movies. But I LOVE the design of this axe!! I also feel that this version of Prime deserves an axe, to the point where I made one for my SS38.
I still have my doubts on his proportions.
Need to see an actual front shot of it to see if he’s still “fat”. It’s always pictured at an angle...
in my opinion, the "axe" accessories on M09 are just "bonuses" ... unlike TW which is not good proportion and then sells it with many accessories (weapons that were never in the movies) as a gimmick so the price is high but getting toys that are not recommended (IMO).... and it's true, I also agree if the M09 axe is also good
imagine this with 3A head and thicker arms
From what I've seen, he really looks to transform more like TW Freedom Leader: the back top ends of cab flip up over to stack shoulders, front of cab splits folds back and around to the back...the only sections I'm curious on are the rails in alt mode...might fold in and slide to form forearms. Those legs are sweet as usual. Of course, they're all similar, with TW being the most, "force past this figure".
