    mine are super snug but this is just thing that will plague this bot.

    i do think the next one will be tighter because of the paint app....hopefully

    Just recieced my payment request from showz for the metallic version this morning + baba shipped the dead version last night as well. That will make #5 and #6 for me of this mold. I think I have a problem with Primes.

    That is a terrible picture! Looks ridiculous. His head is pushed so far forward! The only way to get that would be to take his head off and set it that far up, or Photoshop.

    I caught that too. The head even looks off center, for where it is sitting.

    I was almost tempted by this one but these latest photos confirm, in my view, that the metallic grains look a little too large on a figure of this size. Especially on the legs! Lovely look Prime otherwise.

    Totally agree about the metallic fleck -- too big! He looks like he's been glitter-bombed! :lol

    I have been waiting for a metallic. I can't stand Optimus having white legs.
    But I did not want that whole thing would be metal flaked. I was just wanting the white parts to go silver.
    That and I was hoping for a version without the trailer. I had hoped this metallic version would see release but at the end of the day there is little appeal to me.
    I think I still wanna get one of these, but I may do just as well to get the normal version and paint the parts silver.

    Got my copy of MS-B18X (metallic) today. I swapped the original mold out in favor of this one primarily because I wanted the translucent windows and painted eyes. I think I got what I paid for in the end, but one minor improvement that isn't obvious unless you have him in hand include a better fit for the smoke stacks in his shoulders. They still simply plug in, but it's a tighter fit (possibly due to paint).

    I do wish they'd used red plastic for the shoulder joints and silver plastic for the hip joints (both are still black and a bit unsightly).

    I got my MS Dead Prime in this week and it's the same great mold just minus color. He looks great on the Newage med-bay table, it really does give me the 86' movie feels.

    You can't put them on the same shelf -- no one can be dead and alive at the same time. :p

    that looks amazing....I wonder if they are going to be redoing more characters in this way. the transparent windshield is a nice touch.
