    Aw. Just had my Weijiang MPM Optimus order cancelled due to a mistake with the pricing. Never mind, I was pretty much expecting this, but it was worth trying to get the figure at £50! ;) 


    Don't be too hard on Jane, @ShowZStore, we all make mistakes :D

    I received a response from ShowZ.Store. It is a mistake.

    Well...That was awkward. ShowZ already changed back to the original price by the time Terry saw my message.
    He didn't know what I was talking about...
    :oops:

    Looks slightly awkward with the handles but I love this pose so much so I gave it a shot

    Took the idea from the Prime1 statue.

    Hm... I don't think I'll be able to deal with that chest gap though... Once mine gets here, IF it gets here, I'll finally be able to play around with it to find a better solution.

    EDIT: Sorry, couldn't resist.

    You could not live with your own failure. And where did that bring you?

    Back to the thread.

    I came back yesterday or the day before. That's because mine should be arriving soon. Hopefully.

    Ooo, how does he look next to Challenger and La Hire in bot mode? If you could post a picture or two that would be rather nice :)

    So what is people’s opinion about that figure? Good? Bad? Any major flaws?

    Amazing. A handful of minor faults.

    In summary, those who have it for the most part like him a lot and agree that he’s one of the best transformable representations of prime. Only flaws that should be noted are the small head and the abs. Abs position can be changed, so look at a couple different pics to see if you like any of the configurations. If you can get past that, this figure should be amazing for you. Also, vehicle mode is probably the best representation of Prime’s alt mode you’ll find on a figure.

    I thought the same thing when I bought the MPM. But after getting it in hand So much stuff ended up being better than the leader that I didn't notice the chest and my leader is now permanently combined with Jetfire on my shelf. (until it gets sold of course. shameless plug)

    Hopefully Toyworlds Knight Orion is the same height as Wj/Ba Prime! That’ll be hot!

    Thanks. I was aware of these design « flaws » which aren’t a big deal for me. I was more talking of QC flaws.
