    I hope this works, because I'm on my work PC, but I hope when they do the paint job on this, they get this area of the vehicle mode right.

    yeah i was gonna say, those looked insane

    not to flex but i got mine for $35 USD ;) ,

    also you cant really compare a ko to a

    that’s some great news, maybe putting it closer to mm01s price. Still expensive but more doable. Ahat was mm01s price in rmb

    glad they’re got rid of the base (hopefully) lil. Itll probably be 230-250 after shipping

    Add in shipping and we're probably looking at somewhere in the $250+ area. That's more than I like to spend on a single toy but it's close enough that I'll probably go ahead and do it anyway as long as it doesn't go too much higher than that.

    The problem I always had with the character vs the car in those movies is the robot character would just be completely covered in dirt and schmutz and scraped paint everywhere only to transform into an immaculately clean car with pristine paint. I know why they did it - car sponsors want their cars looking their best and the schmutz is to create visual "noise" to keep your eye from spotting just how cg everything looks - but it still offends my OCD.

    This might be the figure to get me into MPM/ OSKO MPM figs… What would be the Ironhide that would scale to this, Black Apple?

    I know you can't compare, I'm more just reminiscing how I felt like a thief getting such a figure so cheaply. As long as the accessories aren't pointless then a price of £250 is reasonable to me. I spent more on Hot Toys and even have another on preorder. I don't know how most collectors feel, but a Transformer does more so I think £250 is fair for a 12" figure that is screen accurate while still transforming.

    Someone could ask Baidu when they will show the back of the truck. Looking forward to seeing if it's clean or not. I hope that at most this Optimus will take 1 year to be released. I hope it takes less time.

    I would have to assume so, if this is similar in height to the BAOP.

    Yea either this or maybe they're just a placeholder

    I think if the final tanks are chrome they won't mess with the silhouette as much

    If I sold Thunder Leader at peak price when BA was in jail it'd be just enough to buy this one lol

    That's great but we need a definite price because sometimes they say one thing then do another. It's best we just wait until it's close to release to see what the definite price will be.

    YouTube (Legacy):
    I read everybody's post...I was late to this game. 12hr work days. I will dip once.
    I can see MM selling a non-transforming block of a trailer...they will ream us hard on all variants, from mold (abs/forearms) to color swaps.
    Side doors/window folds up halfway and outer panels form from something finishes. A lot of faux parts...not sure on parts forming.
    $275 base version, likely $300+ deluxe versions and DLCs out the waz. Also, can see a separate special pack for the autobot logo swap piece.
    Put aside $10-20 a month and you'll be good on the purchase. Skip a pizza...BK Whopper...I love pizza and Whoppers btw.
    I believe MM-01 went from grey proto to "review sample" release in 5 mos or something.

    If they make a fully functional Jetfire that can combine with their prime they got me. Maybe they should also consider:
    -ROTF megatron
    -Aoe Optimus Prime
    -Aoe Lockdown
    - ROTB Optimus Primal

    We never saw a grey prototype of MM01. The first photos were of a painted, very finished-looking sample:

    Magnificent Mecha MM-01 Bumblebee Movie MPM Optimus Prime

    So it's interesting that they decided to reveal this one so much earlier in production. (Do they know something we don't? Does Hasbro have an MPM Optimus 2.0 in the works? :lol )
    As far as I'm concerned, every company capable of Bayverse figures that look this good should make Sentinel Prime their first priority.

    The sun will explode before we ever see a company actually make sentinel prime at this point.

    we got a few options for knight optimus. All with their own flaws but still. Personally id like to see sentinel and lockdown, or maybe one of the tlk deceptions
