    Red is too bright and throws everything off.

    The MPM absolutely does resemble the CGI model. Just falls short on the arm panels. Otherwise, it debatably beats all other figures in terms of bot mode accuracy.

    I agree since I'm afraid I'm gonna scratch some paint off and I know just it's gonna bother me.
    I wonder if it's the lighting of PVP cause SS38 looks brighter in his setting than it does in @DriftsEdge 's photo

    I'd agree and the DNA upgrade kit will fix that it's the truck mode that's not accurate and part of that is do to the truck chest in robot mode is different that the actual truck windows on the truck in the movie.

    They could have done it so the sun visors pop out for robot mode and back in for truck mode. But it's strange that they didn't acquire the Freightliner license for this Optimus. They didn't even aqcuire the Peterbilt license for Bay Optimus, which I didn't know till recently.

    Wonder why that long of a delay? Maybe related to the paint deco?

    Yeah you are probably right also Entertainment Earth also changed its release date to 2022 as well.

    Yeah looks like the paint is different even more, the battle damage is even different. The main thing that bothers me is how the gunmetal paint doesn't continue up the inward of his arm. I'm hoping somehow the paint is closer to what was shown but I know based on BB it won't be.

    Nice custom and I kind of regret selling my custom a few months ago (the only custom where I feel like I didn't screw up or mess the figure up and feel the need to get a new one). The main thing I don't like about it is how clumpy the paint is one of the hands (mainly 1 more than the other) and also I chose a blue that I had already that wasn't as dark as the blue on his hands were in the movie.
    Unfortunately, this is the only photo I got but it's not shown in the photo but I put light blue paint in the barrel of the gun so it has some blue showing like he's about to fire his blaster.

    That being said since I don't have a SS BBM Prime anymore and I doubt we'll get a new mold of this design for a while (Earth or Cybertronian) so I'll be getting this version.

    True, we probably won’t get new movie style Optimus until at least 2023 when ROTB comes. I kind of want PF BBM Optimus, but I want to save it for Kingdom Blaster and Legacy/Selects Blue Bluestreak.

    Uh, no, that's "silver paint catching the sun". See the pic I posted, which shows the filming truck in non-harsh-light.

    That's Siege Megatron all right.

    Can they show something new now please?

    So the fact this figure has been beaten to death at this point is a whole other matter but is it my monitor or do all his dirt/scrape patterns look like some weird dot pattern? The way it looks in the photos above comes off really strange. Also I'm not the biggest fan of battle damaged looks. To me that's the equivalent of a human who refuses to shower and take care of any cuts. If a friend was walking around this filthy and always scraped up I would wonder what the hell is wrong with him and ask if he needs help. But I guess it's a war thing.

    I think the Walmart version looks better.

    Didn\'t buy it the first 40 times. You\'d have to be crazy about the mold to buy a PF version. Just waiting for the SS \'07 Megatron and Siege Springer to go on sale. Then MAYBE.

    No amount of paint is going to get me to buy that Megatron mold again.
