    They must have quickly transformed to bot mode, got that group shot near the raw energon, then transformed back in a hurry... Unless they are actively going into stasis lock in that pic.
    Dangerous shot to try and get.

    Mine should be here Wednesday. I\'m hoping I can do something about the shoulders not folding all the way down in monkey mode.

    That slot in Primal's left forearm at the top, it's current non-function is really bothering me. Why leave it there?

    Great figure, can't wait to get mine!

    These shots of some of the better ones I have seen posted on this site recently.

    Great figure as well.

    Although this is a great figure, I wouldn't say that it is "perfection, head to toe", as the beast mode held have robot kibble sticking out at sharp angles. I would have preferred some extra engineering, like allowing them to file over the back of the legs, etc.

    Except, having the figure in hand, I can't think of any elegant solution to covering the white backs of the legs beyond just big ugly fur-coloured covers that wouldn't have anywhere to go in robot mode. And you don't see the white legs except from behind anyhow.

    I say it all the time, but when you figure Primal, as an upright standing beast, has no places he can really hide his robot mode kibble the same way a car can hide it on the underside or wrapped up in a shell, he conceals his robot mode remarkably well. On top of needing to be accurate to the CGI model that took a lot of liberties.

    Perfection? Perhaps not. But it's near as perfect as physically or reasonably possible.

    And here I was, chided for calling it a voyager class scale masterpiece figure. "Nu-uh! You're soooo wrong! It's ULTRA CLAAAAAAAASSSS!"

    LOL!

    Anyway, nice figure. Way overpriced to me, though. Definitely skipping.

    Lots of great images of my favourite MP in a long time. I can't wait to get a flight stand for mine.

    This is the first Masterpiece I\'ve bought since the original Megatron and he does not disappoint. I actually think he might be my official toy of the year at this point.

     To me it\'s like an upscale of the robotmasters figure. 
    It\'s Waaay overpriced should of been priced at or around $70 and has fugly elbows for being a masterpiece. I feel like the shoulder pads could have been made to snap over his arms instead of just sitting over like the other versions. 
    overall it\'s a good looking figure but due to price I\'ll pass. The figure and accessories son not justify the price. 
    MP 10 is $160 and comes with alot more then this gorilla it\'s $130 price tag

    I wish they gave it soft goods and made him a fur covering instead of the 90's CGI plastic-y skin.

    I didn't mean the upper (white) legs, but the lower legs. The robot toes fold back under the beast feet, displaying two sharp "spikes" on each heel. I think that the feet clips have been double folded under each beast foot, out folder over the lower leg.

    Anyway, maybe a third party will make covers for the white upper legs, if people want them?

    G1 is a continuity family when it comes to TakaraTomy's stuff. But... Whatever. :p 

    As for the price... I can see reasons why it costs that much. But I also see reasons for fans who want it to hold off until it can be bought at a lower price.

    So I can just suggest that somebody find a site that has it for less. But that is just a suggestion from me. :)
