    Anybody down to make an upgrade that fixes that tab, maybe? This seems like a perfect job for Shapeways.

    Actually, the tab is not the issue. In order for the chest to sit flush like the MPM, you need to shave down these bits in order to make room for the red pieces.

    I don't want to bother anyone but I have to repeat it again; in the silver plate, inside the chest, there are to lineal gaps where you can put the red pieces solidly, like this picture where you can see the chest is less chunky and it will have a better look. I'm sorry!!.

    I am gonna assume English is not your first language because people meant the chest gap when what you are talking about is the abs gap which is not really an issue people have. The issue people have with the abs is the angle of it but that seems to have been solved a few pages ago.

    The only concern now is how far apart the chest windows are from each other and people are annoyed that it is something WJ could have implemented since a simple mod a page or two back shows that in can indeed be made to tabbed much closer together.

    Yes, it's not my first language. When I mean "gap" it's a little lineal hole where you can put the red pieces (the "beer-belly") not the chest gap. The ABS gap on mi figure is totally normal, but I admit that the windows still too separated and the head is too low between them. I'm sorry if my english could be better, but I'm self-learner, I know two languages more but many people in US only knows english, and I cannot talk better, I' sorry, I do what I can.

    Absolutely phenomenal. Not easy to transform, but unlike the MPM, everything snaps together solidly and satisfyingly.

    Yup. It's the most accurate from the top and it minimizes the chest gap, which bothers me way, way more than the non-slanted abs. Unless you're looking at Prime from directly underneath, you won't be able to tell the abs have a gap.

    Also, interestingly enough, if you peg in the abs properly, the headlights are also secured in place. Might be a feature.

    Congrats on finally getting the figure! Do you plan on doing any mods on this guy or are you happy the way he is?

    Just an FYI, ShowZStore appears to have issued a "reward" for those who pre-ordered the incorrectly priced figure. I received 1500 points for the error. For those who did the same, you may want to check out your points :)

    I'm only fluent in Mexican Spanish, but I'm pretty sure Spain's Spanish isn't that different, and this seems more Italian?

    Ah, I see. :)  Seems I was on to something; Google says Catalonian is closer to Italian and French than Spanish itself.
