    Awesome action shot!

    Great pics! He works for now. Can't wait to get him.

    Man, these two look great together! Their colors really compliment one another!

    Might want to check that that is not a Knock Off. (KO).

    An obvious sign to tell is in bot mode the White stripes on his pelvis/hip area are only on the front and don't continue upwards towards his torso.

    Another way to tell is on the doors. The black lower painted section of the door does not go around to the back and inside part (where the door would close against the car.) On the official it does.

    I missed the cheap preorders and preordered $65 with shipping from eBay. I like Bee a lot, so he was worth it for me.

    And so it begins!

    So after a great deal of thought and selling off of a large chunk of my CHUG collection I've finally become a Masterpiece collector!

    The first of which arrived today.

    Things will never be the same again! Will need some cash though. These things aren't cheap.

    In my opinion, you don't even have one of the best examples out there. You've got to get your hands on one if not all of the Datsuns!

    Congrats and welcome to Masterpiece collecting!

    I'll second what Pantsman1973 said, you've got to get at least one of the Datsuns (if not all three). I can't say that any of them are better that the other two, since I like them all for different reasons. Prowl looks amazing and is a fantastic likeness of his iconic bot mode (I love his face sculpt). Bluestreak has an incredible paint job and is stunning in both modes. And I'm partial to Smokescreen because he was the first Autobot car I got as a kid back in the 80s. Oh, and if you were collecting Classics/Generations before, those versions of the Datsuns will be put to shame by the MP versions.

    Whichever MP you end up getting next, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! Have fun!

    Congrats and welcome to the club, bud! I did the same thing in the summer of '13 - sold everything off and jumped on the MP train. Best hobby related move I've ever made.

    Good choice! I did the same in 2013 and I didn't regret it. I now have almost all regular releases from MP-08 onwards.

    Judging by your Starscream pic, you may have timed it just right for the ToysRus re-release of MP11!
