    $25 is a steal with everything you get with this Prime, and the near endless repaints it could have makes me really invested. I absolutely love the ML figure but I probably won’t be buying the repaints if they end up going up in price. This and its repaints on the other hand have my full attention and wallet.

    Being a deluxe figure really helps with space too in my small apartment.

    Could you ask Mark if the clear plastic will have red paint like in the test shots? The pictures on the box show parts of the side windows being clear and not painted.

    It kinda is though? Cheaper, more accessories and wider availability. More than anything this will be better to play around with being a retail product.

    It may be less "premium" but it's most definitely better.

    I think better, in terms of "quality"?

    Like paint job, etc?

    Personally, what concerns me is the exposed mushroom peg on back, and the rubber tires, I've had some Tank TF with rubber thread (the samurai one, forgot the name) melted :(

    What’s wrong with the mushroom pegs for the arms?

    Bludgeon / Banzaitron, right? I wouldn’t let that concern you. Those treads were a flexible material meant to contort and bend, kind of like blast effect pieces. The tires on this guy are like the ones on Beachcomber and Sandstorm; the same as the ones on G1 toys and RID01 cars. These won’t melt anything or get sticky. The worst that can happen is them cleanly cracking in a place or two but even then they won’t fall apart unless you tear them up.

    I get how the mushrooms look scary but they're used like that on tons of transformers but don't come out unless yanked on.

    On another note I have bludgeon and banzaitron and both have perfectly intact treads. Idk why because I never even treated them that well as a kid. Feel like I got very lucky

    So this picture is from Pulse
    1000009699.jpg

    This is from Mark
    1000009702.jpg
    Pretty sure it wont be painted, there are no red painted parts.

    The render...It looks like the clear plastic clips on top of red plastic ...so I'm betting it will still appear red. It's a good thing IMO, not paint matching problems.

    These tires are using a different material, one of the few to use this material is Beachcomber. I don't think there's any complaints about Beachcomber.

    It's just that you can see that the area behind the side window is red while thanks to the Pulse image we know that area is clear plastic. It'd be a shame to not have it like this in the final product.

    The tires are PVC. They switched to that from rubber a few years ago. It’s different from the rubber tires found on G1, RiD and older Masterpieces & reissues. So far, the cab-only Walmart reissue Prime, Legacy Beachcomber, MP44, and Missing Link Convoy all use PVC for their tires as well.

    I tried to look up what you are talking about on TFWIKI, but I can't find any problems, may I ask what you mean? I have no doubt that there is an issue, just maybe TFWIKI isn't listing it?
