    So looks like for anyone who dislikes the “fake” windows (which are in fact not fake cause it’s all one piece) you can just leave the ones from vehicle mode rotated around.

    Possibly...but I have a feeling the way all the panels fit together in robot mode may interfere with that.

    There is much more going on with this one that is right than wrong IMO. Top on my list is that this thing is going to have Megatron's level of articulation and poseibility.

    Hound is looking great.

    Convoy looks a bit overengineered and overwrought.

    Looks great, on a par with MP36. Will be recklessly throwing digital money at AmiAmi just as soon as it’s up.

    Hound looks great too, but Jazz is the carbot I’m holding out for.

    Yes indeed. A bit more to it though - in truck mode they are further apart and a central filler piece comes in with the central frame piece and two little slivers of extra window.

    Somehow the truck grill and bumper end up at the top of his backpack. This sure is a completely new take on a Prime which I love. Amazing that near perfect 86 movie bot mode can still turn into the most realistic alt mode ever done.

    I think almost certainly not as they don’t seem to flip on a central axis so move up/down also. Plus the truck windows would be incomplete.

    That alt mode looks really awesome! His chest seems a bit slim, but it does match cartoon look...guess I'm a lil too used to MP10. I hope the blaster can be positioned better than in this pose...just looks off. And his helmet...I think I need to see the final product before I call it.

    This will easily go for 300 USD when finally released, no doot aboot it.

    I like the back of cab better on this version. It looks a bit more involved compared to the MP1 and MP10. Sounds silly but the back of the cab on earlier primes often look like a pair of legs folded up.

    I need to see this in color, the thirst demands to be quenched, WHERE IS THE PREORDER PAGE?!

    Once I saw the multiple shoulder joints just got the shoulders alone...then I saw the clear plastic triangles in the forearms molded instead of just painted....

    Also I want Takara to open that trailer!

    MY LIFE. I NEED THIS IN IT.
    Is that one of those legends-scale figures?

    I'm not gonna start an argument. I'm just saying that you should never judge a book by it's cover.

    Actually bro it's way closer to Inferno as the start of the fully cartoon accurate era, OR V3 as you call it. Inferno & Grapple, Megatron, Sunstreaker, Hound, Optimus Prime. But ever since my favorite, MP-1, they still were always supposed to look like what you remember them to like in cartoon. But the 3D printing is what change to more exact.

    This might be the whore in me talking, but Takara would have to do quite a bit before I decide not to purchase a Masterpiece Optimus Prime. I've loved each version so far and my excitement has not dwindled with these new images. Each version has its shining points and it's honestly just exciting.

    This. Kobayashi is the boss. So, anything that goes wrong is really his fault- the buck stops with him.

    Totally agree.
