    Same here. I got it offered for 140$ but always refused because I was trusting in a reissue... and here it is!

    Pre ordered! Was always on the fence with this guy but he is almost a perfect representation of Prime Wars trilogy Optimus. Especially with the cracked window option. That series was pretty tough to watch but I still wouldn’t mind having a prime that reps that era of transformers.

    The magic square mp prime is my favorite mold by far. It has the right combination of boxiness for my taste. I bought most of the versions and the x is by far worth it with the metallic paint. Really shines and stands out from the rest of my bots.

    I wouldn't expect tonnes of tweaks (prob just marketing blah blah from magic square) so not gonna double dip but definitely recommend if ur on the fence

    I feel like I've followed this figure pretty closely and I can't spot the difference between them either. Hopefully someone here can enlighten us both. :) 

    I'm also a little suspicious because I can't find this figure listed anywhere else. Not BBTS, not Chose Prime, TFSource, Toy Dojo or TF- Direct. All places that carried previous versions of this figure. Only ShowZ has it? But they have no picture of it? Seems weird.

    What about paint chipping? Is the only thing that worried me about this version

    I remember people here talking about the first MS01X paint scratches, but like every silver figure of the 3P world, nothing really important and barely visible. Can someone confirm this?.

    If they improve the Plus version like the Legend sized OP, it will be awesome.

    This is my Legend sized Plus version, zero scratches and the paint is very solid:

    I've never gotten around to transforming mine. Bit disappointed to not see a silver stripe in cab mode - you'd think a metallic repaint would have one.

    I've mentioned this in another thread, but personally I'm staying away from TerryTFSclub from now on. Out of all my interactions with overseas retailers (ShowZ, SirToys, bababobo712, eyou-collection, TFSafari, TF-Direct and Robotoybase), TerryTFSClub has had the worst after-sales support. I had some broken pieces in my figure upon arrival, and I contacted him three different ways (website contact, order contact and email). After two weeks he never responded so I opened a Paypal dispute. Only at that time he e-mailed me back saying he saw my dispute, and said he would try to help. This quickly cancelled my PP dispute for some reason, but he hasn't responded to me anymore since then. He's not a scammer by any means, but considering the great after-sales support I've received from other overseas retailers, I'd rather stay away from him from now on.

    Since ShowZ still has this guy for pre-order, I just ordered from him instead.

    Here's hoping it won't be heavily painted akin to the Legends one, which doesn't really go with anything. I would also be very interested in an MP-sized Megatron by these guys.
