    Tried searching for a thread on this figure but coming up empty. This is officially licensed by Hasbro but is made by a third party.

    Looks fantastically posable. Sadly it's not G1 accurate in look, especially the head.

    This sort of posability what I'd want in an updated (or 3P) MP-10. I personally don't care if it lacks the alt mode transformation, since we have MP-10 (and several other MP-scale OPs coming out) for that, but having a more posable Optimus Prime robot mode would be awesome. Right now the only thing like that is Striker Manus and that's a completely different visual take on Optimus.

    Here are some reviews of this figure:





    If a thread already exists for this figure, please merge this post in. Thanks.

    Shouldn't this be in the officials forum since it is licensed?

    I have this figure. It's good but not great. The joints have alot of give so it is not has solid as it should be. If I paid full retail for it I would be greatly disappointed. Luckily, I paid about $70 for it during Nippon Yasan's Nov sale.

    Yeah this is officially licensed, hence why it doesn't transform since hasbro doesn't permit licensed figures with transformation for whatever reason.
