    No Doubt! That almost looks like the Movie CGI or 3A!! It also transforms!! I love the chest piece, it really makes the entire chest and head come together.
    Which head is that on the body tho?? It looks very very gooooooooood!!

    I can't say that I like that the pieces have to be removed, but base model is pretty nice to see, and the chest piece add-in makes the bot look damn sexy! I wish I knew which head that was tho..
    On the accessories front, with add-ons to the bot, I think I am okay with that. Even if now I would have to remove to transform.
    I am going to wait until the video that shows the differences between the 4 choices before ordering a head. I am surprised not one of our Youtuber reviewers has done a complete review of all the chest, waist, gun, knuckles, heads upgrades videos yet for review and comparison. Those companies need to be sending out samples to those guys so we know what is what and can make a decision on what to buy.

    I'm going to wait for the video before I make my choice. But I think This Optimus was always a fav of mine from 2007 and onward, so for me, getting him decked out will be a must. I may have to put some other bots on hold until I have him the way I want him, but I think if you love this Prime like I do, then getting the upgrades is a must.

    But damn.. @JohnnyGundam if that's not the best I have seen him look. He looks amazing!! What head is that?

    I need to follow up again in the ShowZ thread to ask if they have any more information about the reissue of this. After what happened I have to think not.

    With the head from Capcom Kai, does replacing it cause any permanent damage to the figure itself? I’m considering getting one but don’t want to damage the figure.

    No, if you order with the neck base then it's just a case of removing two screws to take out the stock one, slotting the chest pieces onto the Capcomkai base, then screwing it back on. This is the dino model head but same method applies:

    These are not "companies" making these dude. They're usually just fans who put their own time and effort into doing small batches of custom pieces, then they sell them in small batches to individuals like DMS who distribute them to us. If you're still having trouble deciding and figuring all this out then you need to write it down or something cause lots of people have explained the situation. Most of this stuff is not sold in any store or even on ebay so if you want it then you just gotta take the leap I'm afraid. Not trying to be rude but you seem to be expecting to be explained things and shown what to do when it's really up to you.

    :lol :lol  No offense taken bro! I know I can be somewhat pedantic sometimes. It's all good. thank you for explaining the situation on these tho, that was a tidbit I didn't understand clearly. makes sense now. I'm gonna get a few heads. I'm still gonna wait on the review vid tho.

    Okay, so that is definitely going to be on the list.
    Good to know they ship here!
    I agree!!
    How much was it total if you don't mind my asking?

    Awesome man thanks for taking that in stride! I know you'll probably be happy no matter which you get, especially if you're getting multiple heads! And you can always PM either CK or DMS they're really good about answering questions. I've DMed them lots of times without buying stuff just to get more info or prices. Besides, you can probably sell whatever heads you don't want on ebay afterwards and at least get your money back.

    Want to give you guys an update. Took the plunge and altered the movie 1 and 2 style chest sternum to fit prime now. My previous photo had him with the DOTM style piece because with my chest mod, you cannot have the movie 1/2 piece sit flush, causing the red abs to pop forward and spread too far apart. Now the correct piece can fit, giving him the right look, with the autobot symbol sitting inside and in between where the abs are, in the same place that detail is molded on the figure mind you! I will go over what I did in the video that I am still gathering things for. My license exam is over and now I have much more free time. 20200711_234807.jpg
