Masterpiece-01 or Masterpiece-04?

who buys transformers for the vehicale modes? the last thing i want to do is display a transformer in his alt mode, i'm not going to pay 110 bucks for a transformer and not keep them in bot mode. thats like buying a very expensive video game system to just watch dvds, if i want to watch dvds, i'll buy a dvd player, if i want to display cars, i'll buy model cars, if i want to display big kick ass robots, i'll buy transformers..... or other kickass giant robots lol my point is, i don't really get why people buy something, like a transformer and then not display them in the robot mode? thats what you buy transformers for right? i'm not trying to offend anyone either but i don't get it personally but thats just me......

o and about the topic, i don't know as i don't have a MP prime yet, and i already know i won't be buying the one with the trailer, i could honestly care less about it

Me for one. Lots of other people won't buy a figure if the alt mode is garbage.

Despite only having MP-01, I would say go w/MP-04/ For one thing, he has the frickin' trailer, & that in itself is awesome. Second, I like that Mp-04 has different communication panels from MP-01, the difference being Megatron & Grimlock instead of Bumblebee & Starscream. I'm planning on picking up MP-04 soon as it is.......seeing as how I just got a job.......

vehicle mode was my justification for buying mp-04, as well as magnus (who now get's displayed in robot mode along mp-01) and I bought two mp starscreams for the same reason. if megs is any good, I'll buy another of him as well.

Ironically, after me saying I like it in truck and trailer mode, my best friend came over last night and transformed damn near everything I had. At least MP Convoy and MP Mangus look gorgous next to each other. I should also point out that up until last night Magnus was still in the box. I let the poor bastard open it. That was his birthday present.

I wish I could afford to buy two of every masterpiece :D

But in any event, I agree that the robot mode is awesome, but to me, Transformers is more than just kick ass robots!

They're kick as robots that transform! Being a truck is a part of Optimus as having a faceplate, a big ass gun, ass kicking "boots" etc.

Granted, it does SOUND kind of cheesy to pay X amount of dollars to have a fancy truck displayed, but as I said, the truck mode is also a part of Optimus.

My initial dilemma wasn't so much MP-01 vs MP-04: Which is worth the money, but rather a comparison of the QUALITY of the Optimus Prime between each Masterpiece.

I fully appreciate ALL the comments made here, it really helped me out a lot!
