    Not if it's $100 less than the official. I want the V3 but MP-10 was about $165 shipped for me IIRC importing him on the 2nd run. V3 has to be more expensive.

    If it includes the trailer, it’s two hundred fifty, easy.
    Considering what the new Megatron was, I’d guess closer to three hundred than two.

    So yeah, there’s a potential market for this. Not even counting the ones that just prefer the style of this over the takara version.

    Timing seems absolutely perfect to me, calculated even. “Don’t like Takara’s new Prime? Here’s an alternative.”

    And some will buy both.
    Some will buy neither because they are oontent with what they already have.

    It’s win win win for everyone really but that won’t stop people from getting pissy. :)

    Bisk is awesome and I'll hear no blasphemy suggesting otherwise. Hell, Fraxure and Thunderhoof ... as well as Bludgeon disagree with you.

    Looks great but that single flap crotch piece is like DX9s mightron. Aka, doesn’t work all that well . Hopefully they can still change it

    So a company that has released only two actual products in their entire existence can produce an MP scaled Optimus prototype that more closely resembles Optimus than the company who originally created the toy that would eventually become Optimus.

    Logical.

    All MagicSquare is need to do a "magical" touch to make the windows more "square" to match G1 aesthetics.

    Single-piece crotch flap aside, I much prefer this to TakaraTomy's new Masterpiece effort. Assuming it turns out well, I'd be keen to get this.

    yeah, I would rather they have gone with the big square windows on this guy to further separate it from MP10

    Looks fine. I\'m still good with mp10. Yes, this has much better legs, but my prime is always standing behind a bunch of car dudes anyway.  I never see his legs.

    Let’s see Takara and Magic Square compete with this.
    It’s about 30” tall.

    Oh no! Transformers has a lot of different lines going to appeal to a lot of different demographics! That must mean that Transformers is dying!

    I do agree that this is probably the most redundant unlicensed "Transformers" figure yet.

    If they make one much bigger it’ll be 1/1 scale! Life size, that is!
