    Still not positive how I feel about this one.
    On one hand, the articulation is devine. On the other, I'm not sure it was worth the cost ($185) without accessories or paint. Plus, it has a scratched chest window.
    Still thinking about it, but for now, I will appreciate the articulation.

    @Destructimis Prime , that Megatron shot is pure seks!

    @artimus prime , brilliant concept and execution! Brought a big dumb grin to my big dumb face!

    @Dachande , hate hearing that 49 is a bit lackluster, but lovely shots nonetheless!

    Been thinking about our buddy TCracker a lot lately. Can't believe he's been gone for over a year. Took this shot of Optimus in his memory. Simon wanted so badly to experience this beautiful and brilliant figure first hand. Such a shame he never got to as I'm thinking he'd love him every bit as much as I do. We'll never know all the gorgeous shots we're robbed of because Simon was taken too soon, but there's no doubt he'd have gifted us with 44 in the Adi Granov Iron Man pose, arguably his signature pose. Miss you, brother!

    Thanks!
    Well... I uhhhh... Thanks!

    Thank you.

    Definitely seems raw without a delicious slathering of glossy paint. That kneeling pose is fantastic though.

    Thanks! Could definitely see this happening in the cartoon... even though it didn't.

    I didn't personally know TCracker, but those who did say that he was a solid guy. I'm sure that his MP-44 doesn't suffer from any of our Primes' ailments.

    Truth. The boards still feel a little empty.

    I don’t plan on buying one, but how is the feel of the plastic without any paint apps?

    I’m sure TC would have given us some mind blowing shots considering how much he was looking forward to MP-44. It’s a shame that TT couldn’t honor that one request, and look at his evidence of photography and fandom contributions as an excellent choice for a sneak preview. I believe the transformation video was out by that time so they were in no danger of having any info leaked.

    It isn't bad, but obviously unpainted. I think it'll scratch a lot easier than if it were painted, as the edges feel unrefined.

    Man, every time I think of him I also think of your beautiful Zoolander painting! I have a feeling good ol’ TCracker would be looking forward to the Jets 2.0 as much as he was Optimus 3.0. He would’ve made magic with them!
