Thanks, dude! That means a lot coming from you!
Hopefully my delay of the shipping to Tuesday isn't some sort of coincidence. I'm praying that my copy of Prime is good condition w/o the ratchet problems.
Got my first paint chip today
Also noticed this blemish at the top of his chest/windows which must of somehow happened when transforming back to the truck as wasnt there originally. How it's happened though is beyond me and not sure what I can do about it
Replacement Optimus received today. Optimus V 3.01?
Optimus 3.0 vs Optimus 3.01
Optimus 3.01 making fun of Optimus 3.0's defect.
So it's not just Bayverse Optimus that is a douche.
Its really surprising you feel this way! Looking at the photo you took the TE prime looks like a Chinese bootleg of MP44, just really lacks the same level of finess or refinement.
Kinda like Duplo vs Lego Technics.
I don't think TE will stand the test of time when more figures get released like Galvatron & Rodimus v2 w/ extravagant glossy paint jobs.
I did grow up with the G1 cartoon so maybe that does indeed have an impact.
Why not a $857 used copy?

Well, I didn't really have time to mess with it other than transforming it before I had to leave for work. Everything I wrote was just based on my 1st impression. Once I play with him a bit, I'll probably warm up to him.
No, it is. I hate it when people make Prime swear or be a jerk to his troops. Or straight up murder defenseless Cons. Though this is more like good-natured ribbing, lol.
I love it so much!
People were right about the transformation. Everything goes one way. It's easy to know when you miss a step.
Ah man thanks Dean!! Right back atcha with your copious photos of glory! Can't wait for more from you and everyone else!
Anyone know of any good TF podcasts that talk about MP44 - Review wise/comparisons etc.?
Whoa, awesome! Brutal, but fair
Oh wow, at first it was a sick and glossy fall but now it’s sky surfacing!? Too cool.
Oh that’s badass. Actually, now that I ask, can you swap the matrix’s around between them?
MP-10 and 44 share the same Matrix. MP-04 is different.
The rest of the comparison pics I didn't have time to upload earlier with my review post:
Opened up my MP-44 last night and started to mess around with it. transformation is pretty fun and smart, paint is nice and most joints are have a nice feel to them. Truck mode looks good with the trailer connected. over all a nice figure. I then pulled out Fans toys Roadking to have them side by side. I sill say the gloss finish on MP-44 make it sound out more but Roadking has a much more premium feel to him plastics feel more solid, joins are nicer, paint on both is about equal. I was hoping MP-44 would feel more like Roadking for its price.
I also put MP-10 next to MP-44 and to be honest again while MP-44 does look better in most respects, MP-10's head and chest areas I still find more appealing.
Sorta feel like BSF on this one, yes its the best MP Optiums we have gotten to date but the cost of doing business is just too high. based on MP-44 I'll be waiting to see how Bee and hound turn out before buying.
