So are people using the replacement head with the original antenna? Because it looks great.
I did. Looked fine to me!
Pics comparisons please.
Pretty sure I sold my buddy on this figure. Brought it to his place for him to check it out and he was pretty impressed. Spreading the gospel.
Just saw these on Facebook...
Needs a crumpled head.
I have MP-44, MS-01 AND TE-01 V3 but I have to say that THIS mold would easily make the absolute best dead movie Prime on the table! The cartoon styling on his legs, the amazing matrix chamber...if this is real, I'm in. I agree he needs the damaged head too, but I can mod one if necessary.
I think this is the first version to colour that small rectangle under the front grill the same as the rest of the groin area.
Jaysus they sure milking this mold....
Ok, this is getting a bit much...but I do like the burnt ends on the smokestacks.
I noticed that too. Expect that to be (one of) the v4 upgrade(s)...
Whoa, so undead prime? I like the white piece on the hip skirt being cast in white. I'm gonna need someone at the factory to send that out on ebay along with a V3 shoulder replacement for my V2. Then my V2 will be complete. I don't care about the smoked windows. I have an insert for mine, and can make it back the way it came if needed.
“White” version is the only one left for recolor I believe???
I always regretted not getting MP04 Sleep Mode. I've been tempted to get the mp10 ko but this is the best to date. If they are going to include bd then I'd want it to be all out to match the movie. And instead of trailer give us the table.
Honestly, I'm totally fine with Transform Element milking this mold.
TE is a new company. Their first product, in my opinion, knocked it out of the park. I want them to succeed as a company and make more toys just as good as TE-01. I'm not going to begrudge them from getting their money's worth from their first mold. Besides, it's not unheard-of for a company to make many recolors of an Optimus Prime mold. By my count, TE has made two (or three?) versions of Optimus Prime with miniscule changes each time, there's a Nemesis Prime recolor, and a Shattered Glass recolor. That's not unreasonable at all. By comparison, Takara/Hasbro has made MP-10 in traditional colors, Ultra Magnus colors, Shattered Glass colors, Ghostbuster colors, Evangelion colors, etc.
I'm not going to worry until TE starts doing their impression of MakeToys by producing endless recolors of their figure (e.g., Howling Meteor) for over a year while showing no interest in making new molds and ignoring all the products they've announced years ago.
Argggh...I don't want to want this, but I want this. There are just so many other figures out there to prioritize over another version of Prime, when I already have what I consider definitive versions of G1 cartoon, "idealized", Nemesis, etc.
Tempted to get this instead. But hoping a V4 so the hinges on his mid-section are white instead of grey.
Off topic but that's the THF Megs? Is his face silver or did you repaint it? If so, it looks great.
Is that a thing? Is there a way to get V3 shoulder parts for those of us who bought V2?
Tell me about it. This shows that TE is shaping up to be a one trick pony. The need some new G1 MP characters.
Damn - I'm gonna have to buy a V4 aren't I....
