    Is everyone hoping this to be better than Challenger? This guy is set to be 1cm taller than UT Challenger, and UT Megatron will be one head taller than Challenger.

    I think Toyworld can do good Bayverse moulds with no backpack like their SS WW2 Bee.

    We just have to be patient, I guess.

    I really wonder if this will be a similar comparison to the TE-01 vs MS-01 battle, with Toyworld being the cleaner but more complicated one, and UT being the simpler blockier one.

    I think it's a must buy just for the paint job!
    And yes I have Challenger and I love it (2018 figure of the year)

    I don't know yet. The paint is beautiful, but neither this or Challenger screams, "Masterpiece! Buy Me!"

    @Shin Densetsu made a comment in the MP-44 thread that sums up these Primes. Takara has been striving to achieve the major fundamentals for their masterpieces.

    -Perfect transformation
    -Articulation
    -Accuracy (both modes) to onscreen counterpart

    Challenger (and peru) only get a check for the transformation. Right now this might get a check for articulation.

    I replied to the other Toy world thread instead of here so I'll give my input again. His face is still sunken in which creates a weird line between his eyes and mouth and the shoulder pads still kind of stinks. Otherwise this level of paint job is really amazing and I hope he meets more of the Masterpiece fundamentals, which you just referenced, than UT's Challenger. To me this doesn't really scream Masterpiece to me either, it looks good, but I need more images to have that wow factor. Not to mention, we haven't seen the alt-mode since the early grey prototypes - it likely hasn't changed but I think it'll look better in colour. Easiest solutions to the problems I mentioned are: not pushing the swapable face all the way in to be level with the eyes or fill the gap, and for the shoulder pads maybe have an add-on for it? I'm a little let down about how they didn't fix the face, the sculpt is fine but the way it fits in breaks the aesthetic, they couldn't do much with the shoulder pads with the way they designed transformation so I'll give them a pass for that.

    Pretty sure it was confirmed to be 29/30 cm a while ago, maybe 28 cm but it definitely scales with MPM-3 from what I remember.

    Paint is inaccurate in some spots, most notably the knee pads. Makes him look good but the sad looking shoulder pads are still a thing which turns me off a lot. That’s just a weird angle too and it makes the face look bad.

    I'm no expert, but that looks hand painted to me. Like the head sculpt they showed for Bumblebee Movie Prime. It's got a graininess to it that I've seen when comparing hand-painted toys to machine-painted ones.
