    Shattered Glass was a thing started at one of the Botcons like a decade ago. Basically, its a mirror universe where the Autobots are the bad guys and the Decepticons are the good guys. Its become quite expansive over the years. A number of the SG Autobots used the unused Diaclone Colors but Shattered Glass Optimus was a cool purple deco.

    Its black.

    Couldn’t agree more. When it looks like it shouldn’t transform because of its streamlined appearance and a lack of kibble and altmode parts, you’re doing it right!

    *I’m still getting inquiries for the extended neck after the last printed batch for gray color I did awhile back. So I have another batch of grays coming today to fulfill new inquiries, anyone who is still interested and any new comers :) 
    See link below/PM if interested. Thanks

    I also have a few black color necks for TE01 black Nemesis and purple SG.

    edit: received new batch

    Okay, I took pics of SG and Nemesis with each head:
    sgte1 closeupv1.jpg
    sgte1 closeupv2.jpg
    nte1 closeupv1.jpg
    nte1 closeupv2.jpg
    And yeah, I think SG looks better with the v1 head and Nemesis with the v2 head. But that's just my opinion.

    I put mp10 on storage for some time, enjoying TE01 very much. When a few days ago I've seen again my hasbro mp10 I thought the same: it is really a beautiful model. Not anime accurate, but so beautiful. It's beautiful just like an "object", not a transformers or a prime. It is something one could want to have despite him being passionate about transformers.
    Really glad not having parted way with my hasbro mp10 and my color variants too. I had a tru version sealed on sale for some time and nobody wanted him... glad, now I keep it sealed and put him on display and it is amazing.

    @ManelFigures
    yes, this link shows some pictures.

    *the added height to the neck was 1/16” which was also the limit dimension that allowed clearance for the head to still to transform w/ it. Anything beyond 1/16”...wouldn’t work.

    I’m really enjoying the dead prime. The carbon scoring on the grill and pipes is amazing

    Also interesting how i can feel the evolution from my v2 to this version

    I hope this translates into the V4 and we get the clear windows again. What differences do you notice between the V2 and the dead prime build?

    So I bought it and I'm waiting for it to be delivered (wish DHL didn't tell me it was being delivered yesterday when it barely set foot in the states the same day, but I digress).

    Unless someone can show me how to look through pages of threads, I think I'm getting V2. Does anyone know of the Major differences?

    I've got so many primes but I really enjoy the way the TE transforms. It takes the cake as my favorite just for the impressive transformation.
