    Where did you order yours from? I did finally take it out and transform it:

    Joints are tight/stiff. Nothing wrong there. But I did experience a bit of paint chip/rub while transforming it. Bummer. It's not bad, but you'd really have to look for it to see it. It's on the wheel well/ribs (in bot mode). And apparently, they're numbered:

    Mine is #30 :D

    @Dark Skull I got mine from TF-Direct awhile ago. Mine sucks but @ the end of the day it does its job by standing on my shelf opening it's chest showing it's matrix. As for yours it looks great in both modes! Really tempted but I wish they would sell it w/o the trailer to save me some money.

    Guess it wouldn't hurt to ask but @ the same time I have other High priority figures I have to get first. That Optimus does look great though;)

    It is a rather nice one :)  For a KO. I just wish the off white parts were more greyish like the 86 movie. Perhaps one day when I'm in the mood to do customs again, I can paint it. :lol

    I honestly think it's fine the way it is. I'm digging the gray'ish faded red they used on him. It would be cool if it had more of a battle damage look to it like how he looked in the movie.

    Yeah I'm just being nitpicky :lol  Kinda like what I did when I did the MP-10GL I looked up pictures of Green Lantern and tried my best to emulate the green, black, and white parts of the costume:

    [​IMG]

    Though the KO BAPE grey one used silver in the parts where MP-10S had the off white, that one looked more to be "darker" and more along the lines of the 86 movie in terms of color scheme.

    Uhhh....yeah no :p  Maybe if I dared to use my dremel I can make some bullet holes. But I don't want to chance it :lol  Besides, it should be cracks n stuff, and I'm not so sure how to go about doing that.

    I had bulk version but sold it off. I had the KO and bulk in hand at the same time. Maybe someone with a legit MP10 can corroborate but the MP10 has the black navel / bellybutton (for want of a better word) further down the yellow plastic square above the crotch, and there are also fewer grills below the cab windows.

    See my pic
    20180314_201750.jpg

    From the looks of the eBay listing, those match my bulk prime.

    And comparing the bulk to the KO, the quality and plastic feel was much better on the bulk. Hope that helps

    You're welcome.

    Even if my bulk wasn't a true MP10, it was still better than the KO and cheaper than MP10

    also the ko has the "ribs" (the grey parts under where the arms attach) straight down where the takara have them angled invards. Plus, the mask on the KO is narrower and on the takara wider.

    The KO is easy to spot even loose.

    I ain’t scared of no ghosts, and initially thought, ‘I ain’t interested in that’

    until I saw the interaction between roller and slimer...

    now, like a ‘rollered’ out muon trap, I feel I’m being drawn to this. Perhaps if the color was MPP’d or even MMP’d then... who am I kidding? If it was OS’d, I’d be all over it!!:p 

    Prime ecto-35, you’re now on my radar.

    So this is a 1:1 KO?
