I'd buy an upgrade kit that came with chrome smokestacks, grill, and bumper.
You hit the nail on the head. The pic TFSource has posted looks like the v1.0 with the clear windows.
Maybe so if you can find a way to communicate to TE directly and request/order parts.
Voodoo Robots Animus.
I dumped my MS a few weeks ago. After having TE I just was never really into him, and after getting MP-44 that went double.
Just got the V3, pretty much my ideal Prime, love the blue window tint, and now very conflicted as to what head sculpt to use. I was sure I wanted to display with the V2 movie head, but that gray redeco on the V1 faceplate really makes a world of difference. Might need to squeeze em both on the shelf somehow.
My TE OP from TF Safari has just arrived, I opened it and I am blown away by how solid and well made he actually is. Super happy!
Seriously considering getting the shattered glass version
got mine and I'm in the same boat. I don't want to swap out that original head out. I just wish the cut went under the forehead crest like the second head version.
Having fun with my OPs
I wasn’t sure about the V3 window color when I first opened it but after hanging out with it for a couple days I decided I really like it. There’s a subtlety to the way light reflects off of it that, for me, works better in person than it does in photos. It’s quite nice.
I just realized Prime (oddly enough the real Prime) incorrectly called him Trailblazer instead of Trailbreaker.
Hey guys, make sure to place your orders well before October 1. Oct 1-7 is the National Day holiday week in China and there will be no shipping in China happening during that time.
Just got this badboy in and I'm very impressed!
I do have an MP-44 that I haven't got around to transforming yet so I can't compare but just handling TE-01 I have to say he ticks all my boxes.
In-hand the original head doesn't look as bad as in pictures but I did replace it with the new head and it looks incredible.
I do like a good quality paint job but the plastic quality of TE-01 is so good it would be a shame to paint over it.
Having not fiddled with my MP-44 yet I can't say which is better but if I only had TE-01 as my main Optimus I'd be very happy.
At the moment I have it stood next to MP-10 and whilst they are both definitely Optimus Prime, MP-10 is like a good interpretation of a generic Optimus Prime whilst TE-01 is like a fantastic interpretation of Optimus Prime from the cartoon/movie.
Minor nitpicks (but in no way deal breakers in the slightest) would be:
The plastic quality of the gun, axe and even the heads is not as good as what's used on the actual figure.
The red light in the gun.
Smoke stacks too tall.
Yeah finally got my TE-01 too. Love it, he’ll replace my Magic Square.
Gosh! Yea, TE01 and Meteor look so good together, like the toon come to life! amazing!! Great pic, there thanks for sharing.
ShowZ has it as preorder status again, are we looking at a possible V4 already?

Okay, its time now for a Metallic version, and a G1 variant.
Doubt it. Its probably a restock. V2 went through that until they finally went to V3 a few months later. If V4 did surface right now, imagine the hate that would come from that.
