Makes a good stand in for MP-10, and it'd even make me want to get Combiner Wars Megatron despite its blatamt flaws.

I'm amazed how close they look to one another. MP-10 looks more polished, plus his chest piece looks a lot nicer - Probably due to Orion Pax needing to fit in PoTP OP's chest its more function than looks so I can't really nit pick.

It's a very good stand-in to be sure. Only thing is that from this angle, POTP OP's ankles look a bit... I don't know how to describe it other than "construct-bots-y". Otherwise, brilliant.

Ill be buying this POTP Optimus just for the Orion Pax. Hopefully the trailer actually does something in robot mode besides being a blown out torso...a base mode perhaps?

As far as this being a good "stand in" for MP-10, how about just buying a real MP-10? They are available in TRUs everywhere currently. Dont got a TRU nearby? Try e-bay. Theres a version of the MP-10 mold with or without the trailer for every budget out there. Dont compare this thing to an MP figure just because it takes certain cues. Its like comparing apples and oranges.

A bit too expensive, friend. I have every intention of eventually getting an MP-10 when I have enough disposable income... but I don't have that much disposable income, so I would be very happy to go for POTP OP.

The Pics look great. The POTP and MP-10 Optimus Look very similar. Tho, MP-10 is still the best for the higher end market, POTP is a perfect standin for those fans who want a G-1 esque Prime that is close to the Animation, and MP-10! That is a win win for fans!! Great looking Primes. ;)^

Just give us a Nemesis Orion Pax and Prime and we'll be good to go!

Actually, I get flashbacks to Robot Masters Prime with those ankles.. so many gaps in RM Prime, it wasn't good.. but those old bots were meant to be cheaply made.. tho they fetch far more now.

The ONLY gripe I have with this PotP version is the gray hands. For something that's supposed to be G1AF, that's a big mistake. I'm sure Takara Tomy will get that right, at least.

I really do like OP's robot mode, but I really don't like his truck mode, so I'll have to take a pass on him, because no sense in have a transformer if I won't transform it.

I only got one which is the latest TRU reissue. I was under the assumption that all the Takara and Hasbro reissues plus the YOTH MP-10 saturated the market and brought the price down. And thats not counting the very affordable KOs. I never looked at the prices on ebay. But its not a rare mold to own like calling the POTP prime a "stand in" sort of implies.

Works out at about 70-80 quid before shipping. The Leader works out by far cheaper - especially in the event of a sale; which tends to happen for Leaders - and I'd much rather own an official product than a KO if I can help it.
I'm not sure how rarity comes into it?

For how unfair of a comparison this is, Potp Prime really holds up.

I have no idea where you are getting that assumption from about saturated market. Despite constant releases, the price has only gone up. I don't know why you think MP-10 is 'for every budget'. The cheapest official MP-10 I can find is $100. Not everyone can afford that for a single figure. And the KO is $50, which some people don't want. Sure PotP will also be $50, but that can be bought on sale if a person waits.

I'm really hoping for a G1 Ultra Magnus remold with a white inner Optimus Prime bot. I have the MP Magnus, but I actually would have preferred a parts former with a white MP-10. My dream of an updated G1 Ultra Magnus will come true someday... I hope.
