    Nice! I appreciate your honest feedback on it. I'm really torn, and wanna' get it, but I can't find the anime head ANYWHERE.

    NP, TJ. I had entertained the thought of selling my Faith Leader to pick up MP-10 but two things stopped me: 1) MP-10's exorbitant price and 2) Faith Leader fits into my mixed-up Classics/MP/3rd-party display like a glove. MP Grimlock and the Seekers help with that, along with FP City Commander. CC is a hair shorter than Faith Leader, but get them into some action poses and the difference isn't very noticeable unless you're in the "UM is taller than OP" camp; I like to think of them as equal in stature, personally.

    I just snagged an anime accurate head for Faith Leader earlier this morning. Really looking forward to getting it soon.

    That said, Faith Leader is definitely more a display piece than a toy. I may just break down and get MP-10 (or the inevitable Hasbro equivalent) one of these days just as a standalone to fiddle with (and keep MP-03 Greenscream company in alt mode), but I'm in no rush to do so.

    this basically sums it up for me as well, when i get mp 10, he'll probably be resigned to his own shelf like hybrid convoy

    I own both MP-4 and MP-10 and even though I love MP-4 I love MP-10 so much more. My gripes with MP-4 are his weight, head sculpt and yes, the paint chipping on his die-cast parts, albeit mine suffer from none as I never really touch it. MP-10 just looks so much better. If the MP-line is the only line you collect like me, and only spend money on them when they´re released, then 250 USD isn´t really an issue?

    Besides, MP-4 looks so out of place along side my other MP´s so I keep him on a separate shelf along with MP-5.

    I don't have my MP10 yet (later today or tomorrow for sure), but I have seen many pics and reviews and this looks amazing. I've wanted a Masterpiece Prime for a looooong time, and I'm glad I waited till now to pull the trigger. Cannot wait to get it. So I guess I will go with the general consensus, MP10 all the way.

    Original mold here by far. Not sure how to argue with people who think size, weight, diecast and such are bad things though.....
    Make my robot supersized please.

    sleep mode prime of course! just buy him a robe, and a night hat, and then a coffin!

    or you could paint some fangs on him, and dress him up as a vampire! :lol 

    but yea, best one is probably the one that came with the trailer, mp 4 i think? then probably mp 10.

    MP-10 for me too! The size feels just nice and I like the proportions of this version! :)

    Why do you even need a poll for something obvious like this?

    I just placed my order for MP-10 through BBTS. He should look great in alt mode in front of my MP-04.

    I voted MP-10. It just looks so damn awesome. I have MP-01 with the MP-10 trailer. It's a great figure but I just think this new one just beats it by a lot.

    I used to have the 1st release Faith Leader. Although it looked great I just couldn't get past the cheap feel of him.

    It took me a while to warm to it, but MP-10 Convoy is the best ever version of Optimus.

    Maybe this MP10 is slightly shorter in height compare to MP04,will prefer this MP10 to be of same height or even same size as MP4
