    I would gladly see pics to see how you done it and how it looks.
    I really don't want them to rush this. Cause if they make anything wrong, I don't want to wait for a potential fixed second batch.

    Not too much on this one, mostly biceps, elbow joints, the "vents" on the legs...

    Showerthought: a show accurate OP in Legends scale is a bigger flex than a show accurate MP scale.

    That's pretty good. The weathering is on point too

    Thankies :3 I wish I had the time and patience to run it down on all my iron factory seekers... and I only got the six main and sunstorm.

    Back on topic, now this is slightly more interesting, yet NA is silent, I suppose NA plans to make a full color reveal, because finish is a thing they have better than MS...

    Next time on The Transformers: Optimus Prime faces down Megatron's new threat...The deadly touch of The Dusticons!

    (My place is quite dusty too, as I have a cat.) :p

    I am not convinced by NA's take at that character. I think the hinges at the thighs are too prominent and that the crotch is too big and stands out way too much.

    From what I understand, NA has only shown us the Ultra Magnus version of the Prime mold, which has more moving parts to accommodate the combined form. The actual Prime mold will be slightly cleaner.

    I see, then I changed my mind, it's still a possible contender. Although I am pretty much sold on MS's design as I love MP-44 and as this one is basically it, but better!

    I think I already know the answer to this, but I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for a metallic painted version like the MS Prime 1.0 and metallic version. I dig the paint more than the toon accurate colored plastic.

    Unlike NA who releases repaints in a rapid fire motion, MS takes their time.

    Over here no cats, but it weather is very wet most of the time, so dust glues to things (specially with the matte top coat), sadly in small legends figures I have a hard time seeing the dust specs until I see the photo on my computer, will take better shots of him in the next week, with vehicle mode and trailer as well :3

    Now having both toys and cats must be challenging o.o

    I don´t mind seeing hinges, add to the mechanical look, screws however are something else, but I do like NA proportions in general.

    Yeah, it's just the crotch and skirt that are very prominent. They just stand out too much for my liking. Maybe it will be better once painted!

    Before Magic Square releases the V2 Legends Prime, they should release the V1 Light of Justice in his toy colors (darker blue, silver codpiece and thighs, yellow eyes, clear windshields, trailer has blue stripes on the sides)...

    I guess I understand.
    I used to have two, then one had to be put to sleep, the hair was the worst part of having them.

    My main fear would be they breaking stuff or worse, hurting themselves with the toys (I got friends who had both those issues). I love cats, but here it would be a deathtrap for them.

    Cats are cool, not all of them are so bad like your friend's cats!


    I have most of my bots on shelves, so my cat can't get at my tf's. (Or at least he hasn't tried...yet:eek: )

    Mine tend to leave my figures alone - although will be alot easier when they're up in the cabinets where they belong! :)  The figures that is not the cats!! ;) 

    And having cats (or any pets) put down is the worst.. we've had to do 2 of our cats in years gone by.. :(
