    I'm in the process of doing my own. I was skeptical they'd be able to mass release this done well enough to get excited about. It's better than my partially done one now. But I would have hoped it would be MUCH better.

    Truck mode is cool though!

    I wonder if they'll still do a Nemesis version for mass release?

    Yeah, they are. I e-mailed and asked a few months ago. They said they will do "all versions" for MPP-10 and someone else asked about an Nemesis MPP-10 and they said yes. Its supposed to come out in April but we will see. I hope they do them all for real. Even Ginrai colors would be interesting.

    got my figure from that smartlulup seller yesterday.

    a small paint chip at the hip, otherwise no issues.

    awesome figure. right up there with buster OP from the movies, if not better, but maybe that's just because it's a new figure :)

    Yeah, I think it may take me a couple months to decide which I prefer.

    I still wish they were the same scale.

    I put in an order for this in a moment of weakness and maybe a beer more than I should had. Odd because I haven't even bit on MPP10 when I prefer teh Geewuns over Moovey by 1000s of miles. But I think the difference is, while there are some improvements in MPP10, it's still by and large just a bigger MP-10, which is already a quality figure. The actual AOE voyager, while a great design, is a sorta crappy figure.

    MP-10 is a quality figure, until you have MPP-10 in hand and you realize MP-10 feels rather cheap in comparison.

    I've really been trying to avoid this thing...

    Can someone give me some temptation and a link to the best place to order one?

    Got mine yesterday. I opened the box and his right leg was broken off at the peg from the hip... I also ordered 2 but only got 1... I have the worst luck.

    That may well be. But he's a great figure that scales with other stuff.

    I've still got my MP01 if I really want a huge Prime out. (although I freely admit this KO is superior to MP01- but I have to assume he'd occupy a similar space in my life)

    I don't know. If it hangs around long enough I may change my mind. Unlikely though.

    I've seen it in person and it is great, no doubt...but it's still a bit redundant and excessive in my collection. As a standalone figure, absolutely, I'd rather have MPP10. But with MP being what it is, MP-10 is still the preferred figure to compliment the other MPs. If it becomes legitimately available for the $65 or so they were being scam offered on eBay, it might become too hard to pass up...but over $100, while it's a more than fair price, I'm just finding it unnecessary.

    *edit, saw this after posting:
    More or less how I feel.

    I've had this great figure sitting on my desk at work for a few days now and here I am in a super boring conference call staring at him.

    So here's a random thought, if I wanted to add an Autobot logo sticker(s) to him where would it (they) go? Looking at pictures of movie prime online he doesn't seem to have any prominent logos like how G1 prime has his giant shoulder logos. Would it just be a tiny one on the upper part of his grill?

    $99 shipped is what did it for me...

    Dude has over 1600 feedback (99.8% positive) and his other items for sale don't look suspicious so I'm going to assume it's not a scam.

    Where does it say Megatron or DX9? I even did a page search and didn't find either term. The title says:
