    Makes me sad that a toy version of this guy doesn't exist. Silver pants is as close as it gets but I wanted a toy head, chrome parts (at least keep the stacks, gas tanks, and grill chrome, even if you're only going to give the pants silver paint), and molded details on his forearms, knees, and toes to look like the toy version.

    That pic is a bit too extreme for my tastes... I like the blend like you described, minus the toy 'sticker' forearms

    Yup, that's exactly what I'm talking about. Love that digi. Except I'd actually want those details molded into the arms and knees, not just painted on.

    The damaged parts could just be removed?? If only we had known this in 1986 we could have saved his life! :(

    Can anyone recommend a reputable seller that still has this version for sale? By this version, I mean the one with the silver thighs.
    ShowZ is out and don’t feel like getting scammed on EBay.
    Thanks

    baba still has stock, although he's marked his last few up from $105 to $126. 4th Party Masterpiece MP-44 Optimus Prime Silver Spray painting version KO in stock

    I did see a "$5 OFF any $100 or more order" coupon on his site earlier this month.

    Tf-Direct is really good. I've ordered plenty of stuff from them and never had an issue. They were even good with replacing a defective piece.

    Hey All, Looking to buy an MP-44 KO. I want the original "white legs" version and not the silver. What's my best bet? I'm kind of lost as to all the different versions/companies putting stuff out. Seems like Transform Element and is one of the popular choices. What are the differences in the various releases? Is there a straight KO version with imitation Takara packaging etc. or are all the MP-44 KOs "4th party?" Thanks for your help!

    Got the silver pants V3 a few weeks ago and it feels so much better than the V1 I had. Things tab together much better and the knees don't feel gross when you bend the legs. I'm very happy with this version. I wouldn't mind if they released the trailer separately to go with it.

    I just bought the silver legs variant and am thinking of disassembling it in order to repaint it myself. Do the pins come out easily or am I just setting myself up for a nightmare?

    Thanks for that, I just checked your sales thread, and it seems to not be painted? I placed my order this past weekend and the item has already shipped!
