    Damn my bad bro, I skimmed quickly through the pages, so I missed ur post.

    I’m thinking that aside from the Jetfire, and the trailer for the DOTM version, they’ll come with with everything from the get go. DOTM Prime, of course, won’t come with the all weapons the armory well include, which I think is fair.

    And the reason I’m triple dipping is bcs I want a Prime for each trilogy movie. My leftover BA Prime will more than likely be my desk bot.

    I really hope the head ends up looking really good or they fix it because I don't want to pay Dino Model Shop $150 just for a small head.

    I remember asking them for the price of a head for Yolopark ROTB Optimus and it was $65+ so imagine the price of a bigger head plus shipping.

    mpm4 was released in 2017
    mm02 will be released 8 years later
    look at what everything cost s then vs now, that's already a big bite out of the price difference

    as for bb prime, this picture says it all why it costs more

    The price wld still be abt the same, since he’s charging $73 fort the upgraded head for MM01. And the most he’s ever charged was $83 for the Leafage head for BA Prime, shipped.
    I’m ngl, I lowkey want that MPM Prime. I don’t know why, but I want it.

    I almost preordered it on Amazon, but I wanna wait, and see if a 3P company will finally KO it, and fix the arms, and cat ears.

    I get that the stuff they sell is really good quality and detailed, but its still 1/3 the price of MM01 for a 3.5cm head. If DMS and Capcomkai weren't the only middlemen these companies went to, maybe we'd have better prices.

    If you mean this section

    1000039391.jpg

    It's actually accurate for it all to be attached to the lower back rather than the butt

    I’m starting to really feel the excitement about this figure, the same way I did for the Back Apple one, and before that the original MPM.

    ironically though the thing that’s holding me back from letting myself get too hyped, is that the figure looks TOO good. It’s like my eyes don’t trust it. I don’t see enough truck parts or panels to believe it’s not gonna partsform or something. I’ve paid close attention to every trilogy Prime upgrade since ROTF leader, and this just feels like too big a leap from the last development to be true.

    NOW THE SAME SIZE IN ONE GIF WITH DELAY.

    It's crazy how much more proportionate this figure is compared to the MPM-4 mold. The only thing flawed is just the gas tanks at the back, but even that isn't bothersome.

    wow that really puts it in perspective how big an improvement this is. Even the back is more compact.

    I guess this is what happens when an MP style Prime finally tries a transformation NOT based on the ROTF leader for the first time since… well, the ROTF leader.

    you have to consider mpm-04 came out 7 years ago, and is a mainline release that needs to abide by safety regulations and durability for the masses, so slightly different playing field from 3p companies

    What's with the fandom's obsession with getting a 3P Sentinel Prime? Is it the fact that we haven't gotten one, or is the design a fan-favourite?

    Our only other really tall and really red autobot in the series i guess lol

    But i mean the design is definitely interesting in all the good ways, from the shoulder pauldrons to the face and body proportions (basically Optimus's)
    There is a quite good 3p upscale KO of the SS Sentinel.

    Personally I want to see how much black magic can be poured into our more smaller characters, like Jazz and Bumblebee (Ironhide I suppose has that shoddy BA-ripped design by BMB and well..... Ratchet will be impossible because that front bender cannot exist in robot mode the right way lol)

    Agree. Worth highlighting that Hasbro MPMs are also meant for kid collectors. Their figures are meant to be fun and involve less intricate transformation sequences. Avoid pointy sharp pieces, be lighter, comfortable handling etc. They have to simplify the transformations while giving the best accuracy and importantly keep the fun in it. 3rd party MPMs are for more elder collectors where it's okay to involve intricate transformations to bring 100% accuracy. Most 3rd party figures are usually 15+ while MPM is 8+. Maybe hasbro could do well with the paintjob elsewhere their restrictions are understood.

    I mean, not too crazy considering they have different goals. MPM-4’s designer set out to use as many real vehicle parts as possible to form the robot bits. Black Apple as a result of the base mold did the same. This figure is just flat out ignoring that and using as many faux parts as possible.

    Another good reason to keep BA Prime for those that already have it is because of that Tianyi Studio Trailer/Jetwing upgrade kit.
    We still don't know the price of the kit vs MM's upcoming kit or if MM will even integrate the jetwing into the trailer.


    Do you mind if they use this artist's work as reference? These could be helpful:
