Thanks to Seibertron stalwart Cyberpath we got some new shots of MP-44 Optimus Prime. Coming in the form of scans from Figure King magazine no. 251 via Loopaza Mega Store there are a lot of shots we've seen elsewhere, but there are a few notable ones. We've got some examples of Prime's articulation (thanks to another pose straight out of the movie), our first look at the Matrix inside Prime's chest, and the humans interacting with the trailer.

At this point if you're still on the fence I'm not sure what it'll take to convince you. Is there anything missing? Anything you wish they didn't include to bring down the price? Sound off below in the Energon Pub!

600$CAN plus taxes is completely absurd for a price. Bring it down to 300$CAN and I might consider it.

I still love that they say the damaged face plate is from that scene in the movie but it's not there in the animation :lol:

To those who are buying Prime, I salute you. He's too much for my budget though, despite how much I would like to transform him

I know its cartoon accurate, but I really hate the grey roller. The worst part is I expect a blue one to be with the "toy" version of this release late, too. Ughhh....

I do not like the cab mode, it just looks way too plain. Also Roller should not be grey.

I want this, but that price tag is disheartening. Hopefully it'll drop in price on a sale of something.

If you want it for cheaper, get it off amazon japan for 315$US shipped. It wont be cheaper later no matter how much BBTS might discount it from their 440$ price. 100$ off next black friday is still more expensive than getting it off amazon japan today.

That price is still way, way too much for me.

Huh, guess I should have posted where I found these photos yesterday. Ah well. Anyway, I wish I could afford this, because it looks awesome.

On an unrelated side note, I am willing to trade my complete CW Ultra Magnus for a Hasbro Masterpiece Bluestreak. I just want one MP figure, and I guess Bluestreak might be the closest value to what I can trade for. PM me if you're interested.

Get a MP bumblebee. Most sites have him under $50 now and the G2 one is even cheaper and he’s worth it. I sold mine and regret it but I’m planning on getting the G2 one to stand next to my original G2 Bee I’ve miraculously lugged around for 26 years and stayed with me through 4 moves.

That is a good idea, I like it. The G2 version is pretty lovely. Unfortunately though, I am in a kind of position where I cannot spend money on one, so right now, I can only trade. Your suggestion us really good though, thanks for sharing ;)

You can post pic after pic after pic ... you can show me all the accessories ... you can do whatever you want - I STILL CAN'T AFFORD IT, and there is no amount of "convincing" or "asking me if I'm still on the fence about it" that is going to change the fact that it's out of my price range.

Same for me. But I dont actually like it enough anyway. That bare bones deco in alt mode (especially with the trailer) is a rather big turn off.

Appart the price, my main reason to skip on this is that I already have both MP-01 and MP-10. So that MP Optimus 3.0 is getting redundant. I may have triple-dipped if he was the same price as MP-10. But 600 freaking dollars? Oh HELL no. That money would go for a Dollfie Dream instead. Because at least, that's a thing I don't already have.

Well I just saw that In Demand toys are sold out of their MP-44 Prime pre-orders, at £320... Outrageous. I know it could be perceived as hypocritical of me to decry the price meanwhile paying £230 for MP Beast Wars Megatron. The main difference is there is no other BW Megatron figures in the line to choose from. Plus I know he is the biggest figure in BW Season One, so the ceiling in terms of price. But the Prime fetish has certainly reached its apex here.

Besides, how can MP-44 be the most cartoon accurate ever? He isn't Grey...

Dunno about the grey but, but the real issue is the ginormous backpack. I find this unforgivable.
