    Both have their merits. I have not been able to decide which I like better so I still have both out on display, one on each side of my G1 Shockwave.

    Optimus, Prowl, Jazz and Sideswipe for me (the first Autobots introduced in the first Transformers commercial).

    I'm going to get the eness/ocean decals since, as you can see, the stickers are already peeling off.

    I still like it too. Adding double jointed knees and elbows seems doable to this mold. Also a new ball jointed neck. It'll never happen but I can dream.

    In my opinion, I think he’s great! I’ve never handled any other MP-10 mold, so to me, he feels solid, with stiff joints and good QC. I only got him, because he was on sale and I wanted to experience the mold without breaking the bank (original Prime would have been preferred).
    Also, I feel like the lack of chrome may make it feel a little less “premium”, but I like it and think it just makes it more fun to handle! Lastly, some people have complained about the swirly purple plastic, but I like the look and the purple has a sort of nice metallic sheen that needs to be seen in hand.

    I just can’t deal with how stunning MP-36 is.

    I have the window decals for Ironhide and Ratchet being shipped right now. Should be in this week. I'll post pictures when I apply them.

    I have reprolabels for some of the other bots and those stickers have held up very well over time for me.
