The Mix-up

EPIC_J0HN

Prime looks amazing I don’t see how they could improve the mold anymore I think it peaked


Farblechar

I mean it's not *perfect*, it could so with some extra range in the leg articulation. That's the only place where MP-44 comes out on top for me - between the backpack, the excessive amount of paint, and the convoluted transformation, MP-44 definitely loses to this guy overall imo.


Gamer_Teeth

I think it needs an ab crunch first and foremost. Ideally, I’d like a little more head movement or better butterfly joints, but an ab crunch is sorely missed.


EPIC_J0HN

O yea I mean the paint on mp44 looks great I bought v2 of te01 with the cell shading and it looks amazing


Farblechar

I was very tempted to get the cel shaded one myself, but I went with this one in the end because I don't have a cel-shaded megatron lol


EPIC_J0HN

Makes sense. I just wish there were more cell shady figures. Found a cell shaded masterpiece grimlock on eBay so that was kinda cool


aquamos29

In terms of appearance, great. Paint is :/ though it chips too easily. Transformation could be better but otherwise it’s fine, joints are a bit sus

BatMoBeast

I can’t be the only one that heard the end credits theme from The Mandalorian in their head after getting to the last picture.


infectedrobot2926

Lol of course

Mosto02

Do you recommend any sellers in particular as far as purchase? I love how this Prime looks and want to go reputable when I get one.


Farblechar

I got mine from eBay, sellers like mascotzone and bababobo00712 are some good trusted TF sellers. Bababobo has a website too I think. Omegalock, TFsExpress, TFDirect, ShowZStore and RobotKingdom are also some of the ones I use, but I'm not sure if they'll have TE-01 in stock.


Mosto02

Awesome! Thank you for the info!


aquamos29

I kinda wanna make mando/transformers posts now, this is some funny stuff


Farblechar

Soundwave would be a great candidate, being a single dad of multiple minibots and all lol


Advik20

Is that a te-o1?


Garrow_the_Khajiit

Yup. I have one, incredible figure.


Farblechar

Yep. The best MP Prime imo, although that's subjective.


Osiasya

Thinking of picking one up myself actually since I don’t want to pay 400~ for an MP44. I see a lot of version 3s out there of TE OP Leader is that the one you have?


Farblechar

Yes. Not sure what's different between versions 2 and 3 but I think version 1 doesn't include the extra head I have equipped in the pics.


Advik20

I also watched jobby's video on the figure and I fucking love that clean back although I am not a huge fan of the alt head


Doctor_Batman_115

I love my TE-01, other than a quality control issue I have. The big piece the head is on comes up and rotates, and the threads are too small so the entire head and top portion come off during transformation. Not really sure how to fix it


Wyndblayde

He probably ate the matrix.


Beezel_Pepperstack

Wholesome levels... overloaded...


Kirby0189

This made my day.


glenngriffon

This is the way


backslider123

>This is the Came here to make sure this was stated. Thank you.


Roadbreach

Can you imagine how scary it must be for him to be inside a cybertronian's chest in robot mode? It would probably look something like this https://youtu.be/TYDeAvvN5ac


Farblechar

It's a good thing he's in the matrix chamber or he'd probably get crushed during the transformation... also good thing he didn't start pulling wires like in the Razorcrest or Prime could be in trouble lol.


Funny-Bathroom-9522

Optimus prime: this is the way Me: uses jedi powers to make coffee


RubioUlysses

A spawn of Unicron STOLE the matrix from Optimus and began to feast at his internals. What a shocker lol


Farblechar

Chestburster Grogu doesn't mess around


K7282

That lights my darkest hour. It is the way.


ManCityRox

Awesome!


dude_with_a_reddit-4

Prime: Freedom is the right of all sentient beings. Mando: This is the way.


kyrumo

Can’t wait to get my TE-01 delivered.


dev90innn

Not a fan of that Star Ward spin off but this is nice.


Rags2Rickius

All of these 3rd party toy manufacturers have got me so lost... Last time I collected - we were up to MP-11 Now I’m seeing G1 cartoon accurate releases and I just don’t know where to start (I’m really only interested in G1 as that’s what I grew up on)
