    Prime is MS-01 I think. Megatron is a KO.

    It's a KO Megatron. Flatter finish, weird face, and the little square/rectangular indents on the pelvis are symmetrical (they should be asymmetrical).

    This is true. Forgot about the KO rule however the energon axe is from MP-10.

    Man, I know others have said it already, but to me your display is inspiring! Besides being completely official, I enjoy it because it's dynamic and showcases a life rather than just a collection.
    Much respect!

    I loathe the fact that it's hard to distinguish between real and fake anymore. Not just as an official-only collector, but because the fakes can be passed off as real to the uninitiated and spoil the experience.

    Got it. I never looked into the Megatron KO so don’t know the differences.

    Take away the movie bots and add in some G2 bots and we have the same core collection (although no + repaints in my collection, just the originals). However a lot of my bots are in storage so it's fantastic to see them altogether in your pics! Especially with how well you pose them! Thank you sir!

    Actually,

    So, while the image in question may violate the rules as posted. Those rules don't say, "No third party" entirely.

    I mean, there's a picture of completely unrelated dinosaur toys up there. You want to be a stickler, start there.

    Now to like the image in question out of spite towards purists.

    It's a cool image, good posing. I wish he did have an official MP-36, or that he had used MP-10.

    But buying 3Ps or KOs is not 'appreciating' the Masterpiece line.

    So, you only read what you wanted to of my post to argue, that's convenient.

    Now, wrap your head around this:

    And... this:

    3rd party transformers are shit anyway, so I will never buy them and everyone should follow the rules.

    You're right. I was generalising in my first post, to be more succinct. 3P are allowed if they're not the main focus of the photo. No arguing here.

    Well since I'm apparently coming across as an asshole I guess I'll leave it at that. Bugste has repeatedly posting 3Ps or KOs only in his photos. Kinda irks me, that's all. Especially the KO Sunstreaker a few pages back, but I didn't say anything. Whatever, I'll just report and stfu from now on :thumb
