Nah. You've just pioneered the concept of Cerberus Prime
Paid orders for the TE-01 vinyl label sets are packed up. Will be sending out at lunch in around 3 hours or so, both domestic and international.
Me too. Taking forever!!
Man, I got lucky and saw that TFsource put this guy back up for order for a few days. My copy should be arriving tomorrow. So do you all recommend top-coating the face plate to prevent chipping? Or just using masking tape over the face during transformation?
You could've gotten it from @ShowZStore for $20 cheaper.

Transform Element - TE-01 OP
My recommendation is to paint a nongloss clear coat over the face plate. I'm going to Michaels today to pick some up. As there are some other bots I want to do that too. Some official. So its not just a TE01 thing, but an industry wide issue. Except Wei Jiang and Legendary Toys. Whatever paint apps they use is astoundingly strong. Almost think they bake the paint apps into the plastic. Wish other 3rd party companies also did that. But for TE01, definitely doing some clear coat.
My recommendation is to never transform him.
I follow that recommendation with every Transformer I buy. That's why when Slipstream LG16 and Azalea (PS-04) came in their alt modes, I was very annoyed. (In all seriousness, I prefer bot modes and am glad to know that this chipping is mostly an issue just with transforming him.)
No, but it will fit into the slot on the back of roller. See photo’s I’ve posted previously!
My favorite Prime right now by far eventho I will keep MS-01 and my MP-10. I just wish I could afford MP-44 without making any sacrifices.
Awesome work. It looks darn good. Why they couldn't/didn't have the faceplate like that from the beginning, just doesn't make sense.
Man, that MM just looks stupidly too big!
Windows are the only weak point as I would like them to be shaped like MP44’s.
It doesn’t need top coating in my experience. And I transformed it tons of time.
I prefer the V2 head non-modded. Your work is awesome but it just looks too much like the V1 head.
Paid orders for TE_01 upgrade stickers have shipped. You'll receive an envelope with a card stock pouch inside to protect the edges.

If you have any questions, concerns, issues, or just need advice on application, don't hesitate to contact me here or via PM. I start checking my alerts around 7:30 PST on weekdays and check regularly throughout the day. I usually respond same day.
This is an awesome kit and well done to you for making your work available to others.
True, but it would have taken a little over 2 weeks to get to me and I don't mind paying a little extra to get it faster.
Good man! England awaits your creative genius
He is now sold out on Show Z.
I hope I ordered in time. My order shows as Payment Received.
Got my head in today, already made a few paint adjustments, may try the mods to make the neck longer, haven't decided yet.
Will post more pics later
Wow! You painted the head crest!! It looks fantastic!!! I am going to Michael's to get some grey paint. They don't have Tamiya I don't think, just Testor.. But I think that crest looks brilliant that way! was it hard to do?? I guess I need a small detail brush to do it. Did you paint the Arrows in a darker red on the arms?? That looks actually pretty cool too! like Military SGT or Command stripes.. Nice!!
Cool. It's fine if that's what works for you. I don't mind waiting 10-14 days if it means shaving a good amount off the total cost. Some have told me I prefer not to pay the "impatient tax".
You can always just check the status of your order online.
You can also always tag or PM @ShowZStore to find out the status.
Is there a thread with details and ordering instructions for these stickers. This is my first time hearing about it. Thanks.
I guess XTB's Motormaster will be equal in height to MP-10 or TE-01.
I'd like to see Roadking next to MPP10.
