    Not a chance. I don’t think we’ll see something MP-44 priced for a long while.

    Let’s hope not. As beautiful as that toy is can’t justify paying that much for one leader sized toy

    Leader? He’s bigger than a leader. And just saying the size kinda understates the value.

    He’s the same size as mp10 if it’s the masterpiece scale and mp10 is as tall as potp Optimus and that’s leader. I would agree about the size understated the value but I have transform element prime second run with the new head and he is pretty much mp44 without the trailer. I will still wait to see the reviews but height wise he’s leader class as far as I know

    Sorry man, but between MP-44 and PotP Optimus, there’s no comparison. You can make a figure as big as that cardboard cut-out as Bumblebee at WonderFest but if the engineering is poor/non-existent, it’s a bad figure. The reason for getting MP-44 and for its value isn’t the size but rather the complexity and dynamic posability, the copious amounts of paint and chromed parts. Not to mention the various accessories and blast effects. It’s severely devaluing to use a figure’s size as its primary value setting.

    Well first of all he’s taller than PotP Optimus. And comparing TE-01 to MP-44 is not even fair. Their at completely different levels of design and engineering.

    If he’s taller it’s not by much and TE pretty much just ripped off mp10 in transforming. Very close. I like what they did with the TE and he’s heavy. Lots of die cast parts. I doubt mp44 will be as heavy as TE but it’s subjective. I have over 65 Optimus primes and I can’t see myself spending that kind of money on mp44. Would take one hell of a review for me to even entertain that idea for the time being
