    I have seen some like Actar talk about what would need to be done to have the chest sit lower, but I have no seen anyone attempt it. I have seen the results of the Chinese mod to have the windows closer, to each their own, but the mod does not look good to me. While the space between them is smaller, from all other angles other than a 2D picture from tye front the positioning of the chest would still have it all hiked up. I opted to try to mod the chest to sit lower rather than closer, having it settle where the mpm's chest sits more or less. I am quite happy with the result. Hope you guys enjoy! 20191020_230556.jpg 20191020_230556.jpg 20191020_201959.jpg 20191020_201938.jpg 20191020_184859.jpg 20191020_201929.jpg

    Finally got mine after months of waiting for the second batch.

    Sorry for the quick and dirty pic but I will do a proper photo set when I find time

    I have no doubt that this is the best movie prime yet in the market, yes even better than the 4EVER and 3A version because this can actually transform.

    If you show me a pic of this figure three years ago and told me it can transform I will say you are crazy.

    It is an amazing feat of engineering and every part of this mold have been improved and added to.

    No doubt Hasbro and Takara did a lot of the work but BA really perfected it to a whole new different level.

    The presentation of the figure is super premium. The packaging feels and looks like some Hot Toys DX figure. Minimalist yet bold with the red and gold colour scheme.

    The figures itself feels super premium, in a way that even chogokin couldn’t match. There is a good weight to it and everything feels solid. It feels like I am holding something that really shouldn’t exist yet but it does. It is really surreal and at least than 100usd. My colleagues think that this is something that should be closer to 400USD.

    If I have one nitpick it will be the abs. They get bumped out of alignment easily. The benefit to this is that the abs have a lot of range to it and everyone should be able to find a configuration they like. The default one holds the most steady and really looks much better in person but your mileage may wary.

    We are really blessed to be in this golden age of TF KO. D572407F-AEBD-452D-9078-3CCD2D3FDA75.jpeg

    Has anyone ordered this recently and received it, or are we dependent on the secondary market?

    Wei Jiang is already shipping out to retailers. Ready stock is not easy to come by but if you find some that has ready stock jump on it. If not it will have to be November for the next batch.

    Dude, that looks really good!
    Having the chest sit lower even makes his head look more proportionate. Is that the stock head or the BMB one?
    This is the best I've seen this mold look! As others have asked, how did you mod your figure?

    I also find this one as the best configuration seen so far. Sometimes his chest is higher than the head...

    Looks like you took out the red parts of his hood that fold up into his windows. Is that it, or did it require some more modifying?

    Wow! After weeks of seeing nothing but the super high chest pieces burying Prime’s head, I was about to just cancel my preorder. But I’m keeping it now, cause of this mod, thanks so much for posting this.

    I actually didn't fill in the gap, but I've heard people have used things like plastic

    Tracking hadn't updated since September but I wake up today and it's here! Pretty awesome figure even if all that I have done is take it out and do a few poses. I am hoping to give the chest mods a try soon.
