I have a quick question. I am buying the first version of PP-01 off someone for $50, how well do you think it fits in with Classics. I already own Classics Prime and the G3 trailer. Is PP-01 a good upgrade?

I own the Ultra Magnus version of this figure, and I'd say first and foremost that he's too tall to fit in with a Classics collection. I've never tried alt mode + G3 trailer, either. This guy is really for a Masterpiece collection, at the 9" scale (disregarding the initial Prime and Megatron pieces).
If you still end up buying this figure, make sure you can transform him without any issues. I remember several of the 1st run figures had breakage issues. iGear went back and did a second release which either had better plastics or engineering to fix the most recurring problems.

weird?i think faith leader does look in-scale and blend-in well along with classics line,albeit being slightly taller (he transforms into a truck,duh)..although he's almost the same size with classic optimus in truck mode..i say get him if u got the chance..
here's a scale reference...

I believe it all depends on what your tastes in classics/neo-G1 amounts to. Given that most early classics designs tended to deviate quite a bit from their G1 counterparts compared to a few later ones, I tend to forgo the necessity for greater accuracy versus what just looks better/good enough. Quite frankly I actually don't like the rather simplistic design of G1 Optimus myself, and furthermore feel the first masterpiece design was entirely crap, and to have that at a smaller size versus just sticking with Henkei OP is an easily answered question.
That's just me though. If accuracy is an object to you, or(primus forbid) scale, then go ahead.
