    Yeah I picked this up from Terry's Club liking the clear chest, and what I thought were going to be white thighs/waist/ribs, but was shocked to find out its actually grey. It looks very close to white in pictures though. The paints on the chest windows still don't match the shoulder area, similar to the first Metallic version.
    Its cool, but I don't know. Kinda let down.

    Other than looking at it? Its just as jarring as their first metallic release. They are having trouble matching painted translucent red to the default nylon red plastic.

    How could he have a broken leg with this indestructible plastic? /sarcasm. Hope they get you a replacement.

    If you have the original 1.0 release, the changes aren't spectacular, except maybe the translucent windows. In my case however, I don't have the original colored Prime, only ms-b18x+ metallic. And because of this reason, I'm totally happy with this reissue :)

    My chest doors seem equal, but I will tell you that I do have the same nylon plastic markings on the shoulders in almost the same exact "defect signature". The top of his right shoulder is especially bad.

    Thank you for the excellent side by side pics. Indeed, the red plastic looks almost identical with the new one being maybe just a touch darker.

    So my impulse but upgrade kit for the original MS Prime arrived today...

    Its amazing how much better it makes this already awesome figure IMO.

    Yes some of the extras will almost never get used but even so... I really like it!! :) 

    Well worth the extra few quid for me.

    Hello, I've never bought any 3rd party legends before. I was wondering if this would scale with the core class figures from kingdom. I like all the G1 based core offerings except Prime, so I'm looking for a sub. Thanks.

    no it will not. i dont have any core class but from what i remember they are much smaller than a standard legends bot. especially a leader size one like this op.

    if you are looking for one that might work try the old dutch mold from DX9. it was a smaller prime that some people really liked. im sure you can find one for like 15 bucks these days.

    You know, if MS was clever, they'd sell the trailer separately.. but make it more of a hero transform.. make it split and transform into the Teletran monitor, med bay table, etc. That way you can display it in alt mode, and when Optimus is a bot, as the Ark accesories. I'd buy it at the higher price it would have to be, and those who don't want it don't have to get another trailer (The one they showed is nice that it has more detail, but is still mostly useless looking for a display.)

    Heh, I was just talking about how the add-on kit was stuck at the post office for over two weeks yesterday, and guess what comes in today? SG Optimus and Nemesis Prime are jealous with their puny axes and guns:

    mgop addon open.jpg
    Definitely a great improvement!

    I tried the pieces on Metallic Optimus, and I think it works:

    Obviously the jetpack is a mismatch though:
    mgopm jetpack.jpg

    But that can be excused since he technically borrowed it from Sideswipe.

    And its nice that he has side windows now:

    But yeah, as I've said before its disappointing they only came up with this for the original colors. I mean, even using it with the "new" version, there's a mismatch since the front windows on that version are clear.
