    I can see the other 3Ps but this MPM definitely beats Fire Scorpion, especially with that massive chest day routine it did.

    I am tired of earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

    A lot of these 3P figures being posted seem to be based on the SS figure, which doesn't look as good as this one. I'll concede the really expensive one that doesn't transform though, and maybe even the one that's a third of the size but the same price, other than that though...

    Toyworld, Toy Lab, and Transcraft (the only one that will be at MPM scale) all look better that aren't KO's of the SS figure imo (even tho we've seen nothing from TC, basing it on their Bumblebee).

    But this guy will probably be cheaper and less complex to transform, so he has that going for him.

    Now I'm just tempted to see what the KO's of this guy will look like.

    Can you direct me to the Transcraft version? If the rumors are to be believed that they’re UT, those crazy bastards are probably performing black magic and I will gladly jump ship on this if I like what they have going.

    Who hurt you, Sad Cat Truck? I need to know.

    Edit: Looking at the movie model again, the truck brows are too big and come down much too low anyway. I think they actually would've looked better if they were more accurate.

    In terms of robot mode, I’d say he nails the look far better than any of those SS OS ones and Weijiang’s prime. Toyworld and Toylab are cleaner in certain places but even they don’t have the accurate sort of curvature in the legs that this one has. Toyworld’s ab section also doesn’t appear to be as accurate as this one detail wise. Overall, robot mode imo beats most of the 3rd party offerings, I don’t know if it’s on the level of Freedom Leader, but he’s probably double the price of this guy. Vehicle mode tho... Not much defending that unfortunately, tires are small, cat ears, shins, curved smokestacks, it’s unfortunate

    IMG_20210225_134535.jpg The only coolest things are the head, the chest and maybe the proportions. Not enough to bite, even a ko.Even the TW truck mode are better and this is incredible. WJ and TW has won last year.
    And... the back is a shit! :(

    It's just a render of part of his back for now. That's why I said I'm basing it on their Bumblebee, who is far better looking then the official one.

    Huh. I’ll keep an eye on it. Hopefully they don’t jump ship on it because if this figure.

    Nice! It will be my first Masterpiece purchase since Masterpiece 27 Ironhide.

    I am excited for this new era of movies’ masterpieces because due to the complexity of the designs, Studio Series does not do them justice.

    What's with all the people saying this blows 3rd party out of the water? It doesn't even come close. People were amazed at how similar the Toyworld figure was to the non transforming 3A figure. And Toylab's looks amazing. WeiJiang M09 looks worlds better (except for maybe some of the truck mode rivet detailing). I'll give it that it looks better than LemonTreeToys but it ought to be since this will probably retail for $140+ and that figure is $70

    I will definitely be adding this to my Optimus Prime collection whenever it comes out in the UK. Really loving the look of the robot mode but the truck mode looks okay at best.
