    He's my "go to" for reviews. Very thorough, and follows up with anything new he discovers. He's even already done a second video for MP44 where he simply transforms Prime back and forth, no talking just background music. As far as the jokes, he's not boring. One of my favorite things is that he refers to translucent/transparent as transclearent. He can never NOT say that now. It's like Madonna's tooth gap. It stays. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I can’t wait for this figure to get reissued! Just got him standing next to me alongside Tracks, and it’s bliss. Having another one to keep fresh will be oh so sweet.

    Just watched Jobby the Hong’s review and I enjoyed it. I cant say I agree with all he says about MP44 especially as he keeps bringing the price up. I will watch more reviews from him in the future.

    I wish they will reissue a cheap version with only the cab. Especially with another paint job.

    That would have been a great touch. Still, the McFarlane basketballs are the best we’ll get for scaling with Prime.

    I'm predicting the + version may come that way as just the figure.
    accessories: some magnetic or regular stickers for MP44's trailer, 2 heads, gun, matrix, blue roller?

    I'm confident they will put out a few versions without a trailer as repaints with the current price would shelf warm

    What do you mean by stickers? Would be awesome if it came like that. Maybe with updated knees and better paint all around!

    You don't think it was overpriced? MP-44 is undoubtedly incredible (I've still got mine boxed till xmas but from the little play I had with it, I thinks its going to be my fave MP) but I'm not kidding myself: this was a daylight robbery lol. This being Optimus Prime, I had to splash out and get it. Can't say I'll be able to for Bumblebee and Hound ...I do think they look great for the most part though.

    Got a little work done on the 4 heads that come with MP-44. I've temporarily wired them with a longer wire directly to the backpack (by creating a custom port at the bottom). Still a work in progress. Waiting on some amber SMD/LEDs to arrive from China to complete the cab lights on his collar. (I already hollowed them out and tested a white SMD, but didn't like the color.). Will post more soon. Stay tuned!
