    Nope. Certainly nothing diapery about G1 Sunbow Prime.

    Best legends, or any scale Prime. This thing already blows MP-44 away.

    That's the whole point. G1 Prime looked like that so why are you all complaining?

    because a lot of people like the idea of what Prime looks like in their mind’s eye. Not the truth. Maybe they can’t handle the truth!

    He's an old bot. Be thankful his pants are only hiked up that high.

    Frick, looked fine to me before y’all mentioned it but the thinner thighs compared to the hips really does make it look like a diaper, especially in that color

    Do not get me confused with others. I’m happy with the accurate diaper. Hell, I want that diaper bigger like in the cartoon image I posted!

    Looks great to me. Not even bothering with comparisons, as I'll be getting both this one and MST Prime 2.0.
    Exciting times ahead, for Legends collectors.

    Maybe because the big diaper look isn't for everyone? Even if it's g1 accurate it doesn't mean it's automatically nice to look at aesthetically :rolleyes:  For some it will be fine, for others it won't be... Hence the complaints, can't win them all.

    Looks like the truck windows end up inside his chest, behind the matrix. You can see the second set of runner lights by his clavicles in robot mode.

    I've been following NEWAGE H27W CONQUEST & H28 OCTAVIAN (ARMORED ULTRA MAGNUS) since the beginning. Why is it only now that I realize that H27 has his own thread?! :eek:

    Well welcome to the party. This mini Masterpiece is shaping up good. The better mini MP44 I always wanted.

    the waist to abs ratio is definitely off putting for me. makes his whole upper torso look wide and stumpy looking while on stilts for legs.

    and no, i don't care at all what he may have looked like back in the cartoon. all i care is how good he looks on my shelf/desk now. :p

    It's okay. Definitely needs work in the waist area. I hope they don't release it like that. The new prototype's waist is almost as bad as Diaperwave (Soundwave) from the titanium line. Prime's legs are also too far apart at the hips which make the whole diaper look even worse.

    I still like it enough that I’m probably getting it but finally watched the video and it reminds me of their Bee from the side. You can see panel gaps.

    92480EA1-FDFD-4ABC-A989-972EDBFBF532.jpeg

    not super clear but see the side of the chest. But Bee turned out way more fun than I expected so if that’s the worst there is, good enough. The trailer even has some good points but it will probably still gather dust with the rest of the gray trailers. ;)
