3rd party companies really want to clear us out on the same months.

As much as I like this more in-scale MP Prime I've already preordered FansProjects upgrades and Springer. Bad timing iGear.

I notice there's no sculpted Autobot Symbol either. Yeah, didn't think they'd chance that.

Not interested. Make something new and creative, then we'll talk.

Thanks for playing!

Ok, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it... this is a KO! The only difference between this and any other resized KO is the attention to detail and overall quality. Yes it would be nice to have masterpiece prime in a scale closer to classics/universe, but this is just a glorified KO. nuff said.

Yeah, so? What's the problem with that? Do any of the KOs at the dollar store compare to this?

For those of us who would like a slightly smaller Prime to go with our Autobot forces, here's our chance. I imagine those who missed out on the 20th Primes/MP Convoys and/or don't want a figure that big might enjoy these, too.

I see the appeal of this. It's not for me, but that doesn't make it any less cool.

Surely this is a lawsuit waiting to happen. This is not some backstreet Chinese KO merchant here. I hope this does not end up hurting other 3rd party manufacturers. :-(

Lookin' sexual. Now just attach a price just as nice and I'll have to decide whether to stand him next to MP Prime and the alts, or next to classics prime and the universe collection.

Man you just gotta have the original no matter what. It's the original masterpiece!

While this miniature is excellent and a must buy for me at least, it doesn't beat owning the original beast in all his die-cast, chrome-y, one shall stand one shall fall goodness.

There never can be too much Prime's.

KO or not, just because they don't have the license to make Transformers, doesn't mean that it's a piece of junk.

What if Takara did licensed them to make it. What then? Would it then be a lot of more cooler or more valuable?

I mean judging by the pictures the quality looks very good as well as the details.

And as for the size, I keep the original MP Prime in a glass enclosed case in my living room, where he can stand out all by himself.

As for the Miniature Prime, he could easily go upstairs along with the rest, where he can be among the Universe/Henkei Line. He will fit there perfectly.

Actually I think regular masterpiece prime goes with classic figs, but this thing basically is a knock off. I am not getting it because my masterpiece prime has still not been shipped yet from this dude on ebay. (It has been two weeks now redscallop... HURRY UP)

I have MP-1 and MP-4, but I'm picking up all 3 of these releases (faith, nemesis, clear), also. In fact, I already paid up :-) These will look great in scale with Grimlock, starscream, etc. Hopefully they are able to create a down-sized Megatron that's been rumored. I'm also hoping they can release an MP-2 with battle armor... man that would be great.

Not bad.
Not bad at all.

But I want to hear a review first. Especially it's plastic quality. While impressed by their accuracy, I wasn't impressed with their auto-scout's construction.

Yeah if the quality is there then so am I. This is just what I wanted. Classics/Henkei Prime is real nice and all but just doesn't have that same G1 look. MP Grimlock and the Seekers proudly stand amongst my classics/universe figures. Their slightly smaller scale lets them fit right in and this slightly smaller Optimus would be perfect. Just have to wait and see how this develops. News of this figure has been out for some time now and still no word from Hasbro. I think they may be letting this slide.

He looks great. I don't think he fits into my collection though. Tooo small for the MP's and not the right look for the Classic/Universe shelf.

I want this so bad I can taste it! =P~

I'm a total scale Nazi and this will fix a lot of issues I've had since Takara started making the smaller MPs.

It also fits great with classics, and it'll allow me to redo my shelves.

I like the new head/face. While it would be nice to stand next to my Alternators, I just can't justify 100 bucks while I already have both hasbro versions. Hopefully it sells well just to lead to other 3rd party items, but I have to pass on it.
