    Solid figure. I learned to embrace the paint chipping. IMG_20210304_174444_360.jpg IMG_20210304_174444_317.jpg IMG_20210304_174444_366.jpg

    Awesome, sounds OK. Hopefully the chest isn't too bad.

    my first YT vid ;) 

    then my TW vs WJ/FS comparison
    you can see what seems to be updates to the figure, non loose fingers (minor and on BOTH oddly enough)...I was still smitten with the WJ/FS and need to make a more fair one for TW Freedom Leader ;) 
    WJ/FS is still a handsome figure to this day and I admire his looks still...I might have to buy MPM 12 just to see what HasTak came up with. o_O

    join the forum just to ask some opinions. Someone in my country sell M09 for only $62.55 preloved with good condition. should I take it, or it's better I just get the LS13 brand new with cheaper price? I really like the bumblebee movie prime design. bwt, sorry for my English

    Is that $62.55 US? Also, what are they selling LS13 for? A price comparison would help figure out what's right for you.

    I remember Aoyi/BMB ls13 has a simplified cheaper version, the change is mostly in the legs. Make sure you don't accidentally buy that one. (Of course unless you really want this water-down version)

    Yes US dollar. The LS13 is about 55$.

    It's the upgraded version with different feet. I like the alt mode, but the m09 better in the bot mode.
    I know about the paint chipping, but One thing that really bothers me is how about the plastic quality on this m09?
    Is it fragile?

    (Edited: should be LS13 instead of LS09)
    I have both LS13 and M09, I don't feel M09 is more fragile, but kind of loose in the joints.

    glad to hear that.
    has anyone experienced a broken piece in this figure? I just saw on the other thread like TC bumblebee or TW freedom leader

    I have Fire Scorpion, and looking at the price, I think Fire Scorpion is the better deal. Is it in good condition besides the chipped paint? If it is, I think Fire Scorpion is the better deal.

    @itsumairu You held out? Even when Showzstore had the no box version for $80? I hope you are able to secure him for that awesome price. ;)  Best legs of the OPs :D

    Finally received one yesterday for about 53 US dollars, for me I think it's a super great deal even though it has those flaws....
    Didn't get too much time to mess with it, but took a quick look at mine and only the right arm is a bit loose but still poseable, and a few paint chip on the chest and thigh.

    A store in Taiwan, I forgot to add the locations I got from my bad. It was a store that was clearing their remaining stocks for M09.

    Dudes, the unboxed went up! At least at showzstore WeiJiang M09 Commander Leader Optimus Prime - Show.Z Store (showzstore.com)
    Get it while you can and don't let it end up like BA Prime. ;)  (for some of us, me not included, hehehe)
    Honestly too, every time I see this figure I love it, he's a handsome bot :D 
    Heavy thighs and no shoulder ratchets...doesn't detract from this guy. Of course, I imagine if I bought him at TW's Freedom Leader price, I might be annoyed though.
