    Also, my biggest theory is people are just bitching and moaning about things to talk themselves out of the 450 dollar Price tag at this point.

    You know... The people who planned on buying a KO of it all along.

    The people incapable of budgeting. :p

    I just contacted Anime Export for curiosity. And they said 35000 Yen. Convert that into Canadian, would be $410. IS that worth it?

    He lools fan-freaking-tastic, i don't know if i'll ever get the chances to get an official one though.

    The S1 is nice yet expected touch, the ab-side joint looks great and overrall better than MP-36.

    Man this is THE BEAST.


    I wish the MPM Prime was like this, expensive but all worth, sleek, delicious looking paint, lot of things he used, proper arriculation and the trailer.

    Probably the other way around on the budgeting part.

    Sure, it looks great. But I don't need a third MP Optimus Prime.

    I can afford it, I just don't think he's 450.00 worthy.
    I also prefer to buy Official, not 3P.

    Finding ways to work around the reason for the price when part of a business is to insure good reliability doesn’t constitute “it is what it is”. God Fire Convoy Encore had a stop sale because their QC was garbage and that had a high sticker price. Didn’t turn out so well and they lost business. QC matters, period, for any product if a company wants to stay in business.

    No back shots of robot or vehicle mode? The back of the vehicle mode seems like a mess. :(

    The fandom today:
    “Ha! I don’t need a third Masterpiece Opti- Is that an alternate Starscream head?”
