Greetings Seibertronians!

MPM Optimus Prime is just around the corner. Seibertron user MadProject pointed us out that Prime VS Prime made a video review of this soon to be widely in store Masterpiece. The rather controversial truck mode that is heavily sacrificed for the bot mode and a simpler transformation is shown is all it's "cat hears" and "legs on the back" glory. Then on to a surprisingly simple transformation that is no harder than the voyager to transform and we finish with a pretty solid bot mode.

You can watch the review down below:



What do you think of this Masterpiece? Is the imperfect vehicle mode a deal breaker or is it forgiven for that nice robot mode and that user friendly play value? Please let us know!

I wanted to like this figure since day 1. I really did. Up until now, I was one of the few advocates of this figure. But never freaking mind. there’s WAY too many “buts” when watching this review. His monkey arms are too long, his head is too big AND too thin, the color mismatching is completely unacceptable for a premium figure, those hands look freaking ridiculous (I’ve seen better looking articulated hands on WFC leader and voyager figures), the articulation is worse than most deluxe class WFC figures I own (seriously?? A single jointed knee???), the loose wrists, the MASSIVE gaps in the truck mode bed, the cat ears, the lack of diecast, cheaper plastic, and I’m ashamed to say the list goes on and on. I’ve liked most of the previous MPM releases thus far, but this certain figure has SO many issues and “buts” to the figure that everyone is bound to find at least a couple things that get on their nerves about him. And the worst part is hastak has absolutely no reason why they couldn’t have knocked it out of the park with this one. They have the MPM budget, the CAD design files, the groundwork example laid from several 3p companies, some ingenious hastak designers who’ve been giving us fantastic mainline figures and some great past masterpieces, so what the heck went wrong? What a dang shame. It takes quite a lot to make me consider not buying an MPM, but this is genuinely doing that for me.

Unless I land on that MPM at heavy clearance, it's a hard pass. I'll stick with the SS voyager or I'll go the 3P route.

The way I look at this he's like the mullet of Optimus Prime figures. Earth trailer truck in the front and Cybertronian truck in the back. Still getting him, I have no choice since Amazon Japan doesn't allow cancellations after a few weeks from your order.

We can do like Cyberverse and say it's his cybertronian mode.

Day 527 of waiting for Transformers Armada Masterpiece news.

In that case, it's missing the fancy hubcaps.

Regardless, I'm sure a 3P upgrade kit will come soon enough to fix the most glaring issues.
