    hmm if you've got a pantone # for the plastic, maybe its close to what's over it. either way it'd be a decent point to work from.

    So I’ve left mine in robot mode more or less since I got it, and man, I’m having a heck of a time getting it back into truck mode. I mean, I’ve got it transformed, but as it is now, the crotch would drag along the ground if you were to roll it! I feel like something’s up with the hips, and it’s pushing the tops of the legs such that they can’t stay closed. Will try starting over, but man, I worry I really stressed it a lot in the process!

    I’m thinking of getting this fella as my Neo G1 Prime. Could anyone perhaps take of picture of him next to Planet X Pluto (FOC Megatron)?

    I'm got bored waiting for Eris:Kultur to arrive and decided to open Optus. Delighted to find the extra set of grey guns to go along with the separately packaged head sculpt I received. Here I thought I would have only received the extra head. :)

    Wow! I've had this guy for months but just now transformed him. Amazing. Such a smooth and elegant transformation.

    Got mine in a couple of weeks ago but haven't had a chance to do anything with him because life happens. Before I start can I get a heads up on anything that might break?

    there are some panels below the back of the knee, on the calf that you should be a little mindful of when you are transforming him. There are more detailed descriptions of what to look out for and how to remedy it in the thread, but from what I understand just take a look at the area when you open them up, you should get an idea of what’s going on; When you want to collapse the legs, give them a little push to make sure that they are going to slide inside instead of getting stuck.

    Was awake and healthy enough to finally fiddle with this guy today. Wow. I get that Primes tend to benefit from having a brick alt mode, but still the idea that they could get this degree of articulation in a transforming figure that is a close match for the source material is amazing. And the transformation isn't even that difficult. Really in that sweet spot of simple, novel, and interesting.

    I do wonder what possessed MMC to go all in on the poseability here. I can get the hands, arms, and legs, but that much articulation in the torso was completely optional (and bless them for it).

    Nemesis colours will look great without a doubt, but this is one case where I knew I'd prefer the normal version, because I really wanted a comic-accurate Orion Pax.

    Still looking forward to seeing the repaints, but I'm good sticking with my 1st-release Pexus.

    I mean, push comes to shove I'll probably buy both, but I had a Maketoys Striker Noir all set up to pose with OP.
