    I just found out about this figure when I saw it listed In Stock at TCP. I may need one of these, it looks fantastic! Just came here to find the thread about it, dunno how I missed it all along lol.

    "ELEMENT TE-01 vs MS-01 vs MP Optimus V3"? My vote goes to "Mech Planet The Hot Soldiers HS-02 PropSkyPillar". :D 

    This looks to be for legends OP like the little New Age Bee is for legends Bumblebee. Really nice.

    Here are some quick shots, including comparisons to DX9 Dutch and MFT's Megatron. Sorry for the lack of focus on some shots. Want any other pictures, just let me know.

    You can see what I said about the knee and waist, too. The proper knee joint is above the blue part of the leg, but it tends to bend at the transformation joint instead. Also, the hips tend to bump into the waist a lot, making it difficult to move them out to the side. Still, he's leaps and bounds an improvement over Dutch.

    thank you for the pics he looks great. also the thing with a double knee that i have seen is that sometimes you have to break the joint in some. that keeps it from engaging the transformation joint.

    i feel IF is notorious with the double knee

    Awesome (and very helpful) pics! I have a few minor nit pics with the guy -- e.g. the arm flaps, the way the tapered waist in conjunction with somewhat skinny thighs make him look top heavy from certain angles -- but overall he looks pretty nice. Anxious to see how he'll compare with MST's version.

    Thank you! I bought the silver MFT Megatron to go with him and was a little afraid he might be too short.

    Could use some paint on the legs for sure, but that's about the only thing Dutch has on him.

    Long, but actually very accurate to an actual trailer.

    If you mean the silver vents, those are Reprolabels.

    Not perfect, a few niggles, but definitely an almighty effort producing a good figure to go into the future with.

    hm, my DX9 bumper has silver paint on his face... not sure why this one doesn't.. but the scale seems pretty nice. I'm receiving my HS02 and MST Trailbreaker in the post today, coincidentally! Time to replace my old GT Op. Worried that this one is just a stand in for when MST releases their Oppy though...

    Prime is on US soil, somewhere in the big city about two hours south of home. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday this week..

    Mine hit JFK the other day, so fingers crossed that he'll be here soonish.

    That's awesome! The funny thing is, I've got Prime coming from the east coast and Sixshot just landed in LAX over the weekend.
