    It would be perfect if they will release an "upgrade kit" so that you can have both OP without buying two of them!! I don't think it would be that difficult, I already saw some customers printing and painting abs to add to tue figure...

    Was able to do the head light alt transformation with my chest mod. The lights dont sit as nice as they do without my mod, but it works dor me, and gets them off the abswhich helps the look even more. For me, what my figure really needs now is a new damn head. This mpm mold is too thin, and lacks detail that the size of the version needs. Anyone know of a head that could work with this body? I keep seeing 3D printed heads, but not sure if they are meant for this prime or for other non transforming primes. Also if anyone does make a new head, the whole neck has to be redesigned so that he had a ball joint. I think swappable faces is the way to go, the rotating face gimmick is clever, but in terms of an action figure, the axis of rotation for the neck to look up is way to far back and gives off an ugly gap

    I'm not sure if this is recent but ShowZ now have this listed as in stock and available to buy now as opposed to pre-order, for those still looking.

    CapcomKai on Instagram posted a really great looking 3D printed head which is for a non transforming figure, but a few weeks back he did a poll asking if people wanted it for other figures and I think a version for this Prime came out on top, so fingers crossed it happens.

    Good luck! Mine shipped on October 27th and I haven't heard anything since. ShowZ says that the shipping is "for China's big packages" and will take between 3-4 weeks to arrive in the US.

    Beautiful pics!
    I also love this scale, I think is the best for collectors! I hope they will maintain it and add new characters. Now I wait to see the next mpms Rachet and Starscream. In your opinion, is black mamba Ironhide also in this scale or slightly bigger?

    Regular MPM-06 is about 1:30 in vehicle mode, only slightly too small compared to the carbots. I don't own Black Mamba's Ironhide, but the impression I get is that Black Mamba's MPM-04 and MPM-06 scale better to the Human Alliance line, though they probably aren't too far off for MPM-03. (They did make a Barricade and Sideswipe to scale with 03, after all.)
