This is something I have wanted nearly all my life. Having seen the prototype I can’t help but feel something is still off. Having said that I felt the same thing about mp36 and now I love that figure. I think once this is painted and done it may finally be my ultimate prime figure. I do think if 3rd party made a new head and legs for mp10 I would be just as happy. I never liked his wheel covers honesty.

A lot of collectors are hating on this new designed. My first impression is that there is something odd looking with his crotch and underwear area and the whole waist area. The abdominal area is kinda small and the diaper as some calls it is big. But proportionally this one is better than MP-10. A lot of collectors has forgotten about the Gorilla arms of MP-10. I guess it’s easy to hide by bending his arms. But side by side comparisons, MP-10 version does look stompy and Sqwat. This new Optimus is sleeker slimmer looking. I guess this was why them third party oversize and remakes made him a bit taller from the lower leg section. Also the whole leg transformation on this new one, the way they hide the wheels and the simplicity of how the lower leg look, makes the figure much more cartoon accurate. This will most likely look a lot better once we see a color test shot and clearer picture.
I saw that 3rd party one too. Looks good! I would probably go with the Takara one. I like 3rd party masterpieces but if I can avoid having to put stickers on a figure I will do that since I am bad at putting them on! LOL
KumaStyle.com (TJ): It's a fair statement. The MP official line has been a q.c. dice roll for years and I feel like MP-44 was such a big release that no one could avoid that elephant in the room anymore after it turned out to be a mess but I'm glad the community is

getterjehuty: Isn't the Perfec Effect Leonidas have loose joint legs?

KumaStyle.com (TJ): at a point where they are vocal about it... and the PerfectEffect Leonidases literally have a loose everything. Even if they're half decent out of the box they seem to just go to heck sitting on a shelf after a bit and unfortunately it's pretty universal.

getterjehuty: THis is my opinion but the issues of mp-44 are the knees and the paint. You have to be really careful or the paint will scratch. It is near the abdomen area side.

getterjehuty: I need to ask, KumaStyle. What is your favorite EX Gokin Fewture Robot?

KumaStyle.com (TJ): I agree on the issues and those compounded with how incohesive the aesthetic is compared to the third party offerings that came out around the whole time was just.... ugh. Ref EX Gokin: That's a tough call and I honestly don't really think I have a

KumaStyle.com (TJ): favorite in terms of look and quality because it was a very consistent line for me in that regard but if someone put a gun to my head and said choose now I'd probably go with the original release Getter Dragon. I think it has

KumaStyle.com (TJ): the perfect mix of homaging the original design but having Sato's signature stylization while the build and articulation were pretty tops. I feel like it has the most crossover appeal to those wanting something more faithful while not having any

KumaStyle.com (TJ): little finicky parts that will fall off during handling like some of the others do.

getterjehuty: Mine is Reideen or Shin Getter. I love their designs

KumaStyle.com (TJ): Yea. Shin Getter is up there for me as well. Probably my favorite visually but it's definitely not one I like handling at all anymore.
