    I've been waffling on getting a TE Optimus, but after seeing @Wan 's pictures, I'm sold. Putting in order now.

    Hi, everyone I\'m new here. This is my very first post in this place. I\'ve to say it\'s a pleasure to be among so many transformers fans. 
    TE-01 is the Prime of my childhood and notwithstanding it\'sarrived months ago I\'m still playing with it as the early days.
    It\'s an amazing figure!!!

    Thanks. This figure is better than what some people think. Yes can't pose as good as mp44 but it's better than mp10.
    And cleaner robot mode and truck mode than mp 44. But it's just my opinion

    To be fair to te 01 it's a fraction of the price of mp44 so i would say i would expect a 400 dollar figure to have better articulation, but having said that as much as i like mp44 and ideally i'd like to get it It's way out of my price range and Te 01 fills the optimus shaped hole on my shelf nicely

    I'll have him in two days. Looking forward to seeing what he's like. When this and MS Optimus were released, I went with MS. No regrets over that as the MS Optimus is awesome, but the TE Optimus definitely has a nice look to it.

    No worries. We're all free to make mistakes.

    And after all freedom is the right of all sentient skiings

    I think technically that's a genocide, if we're talking sentient beans here!

    @timcourtois
    I tried it and here are the results.
    I simply use a 2-sided nail file to file down the ridges.

    I started with the heavy grit side, slowly filing away. Mid-way switch to the finer side of the nail file until smooth. Lastly use a polisher to smooth further and bring out the sheen of the material.

    Now you can’t even tell it was 3D printed, looks like the original. **I don’t think sanding is really required since the neck is mostly hidden and in shadow, but figured I demonstrate it if anyone desire to do so :)

    Finally arrived and hands down this figure truly is worthy of being called AMAZING! Right away installed my neck upgrade from transformer_78 and what a difference:D
