    TE Prime often makes me wonder about my own decision to go with MS haha, they are both excellent figures it seems, though I ultimately went with MS coz it has a bit more surface detailing imo to not be too toon looking. TE isn't too bad in that department though either.

    I didn't even know those upgrades existed, very cool! Wish they made some in SG colours.

    Ha, I have him paired with MS Prime (non-metallic) too... b/c they just look "right" together. I couldn't bring myself to use MP44, same problem as MP Megs, a bad case of high-waist-stumpy-torso syndrome. I did buy the KO MP44 with silver legs just to have one of the mold, but he lives on the alt-Prime shelf with my MP01, MP10, KU-MP10, KD-MP10, Faith Leader, etc. MS Prime and Despotron are clearly the best for my main display.

    Regarding MS OP I agree. They look awesome next to each other with their beefy proportions.

    That price was so good that I picked up a second copy of Despotron so I can try my hand at a little custom work to make him somewhat more toon accurate. I thinking:

    — modding the fusion cannon from Infinite Transformation MP Megatron to fit on Despotron
    — either modding the MoDel Model-001 MP-36 Head Upgrade Kit to fit Despotron or modding the X-Transbots Apollyon helmet to work with the Despotron faces

    Never have done much modding before so this could be interesting.

    I do believe they did some in SG if memory serves from the same company.

    It’s an absolutely great figure isn’t it? I was blown away with it when it first came out and even after MP-36 I still find it to be a great alternate take on Megs. And a steal at that Black Friday sale price. My son and I each have one.

    Got him a few days ago, he is fantastic. I love his beefy robot mode proportions and the transformation was pretty easy.
