I hope I didn't come off too negatively! I think this figure is okay. It just lacks the extra pizzazz that some of my greatest MPs have. Let me put it this way... TFC Nuclear Blast optimus costs $50 more than Stellarus and you get a fully painted figure made of very good materials. That figure is a bit smaller but it feels like a much better value. I know MMC is capable of very good materials and paint. MMC Saltus is a work of art for example. I don't get the same feeling of joy from posing Stellarus that I do from transforming/posing saltus.
