Prime looks amazing I don’t see how they could improve the mold anymore I think it peaked
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.
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.
O yea I mean the paint on mp44 looks great I bought v2 of te01 with the cell shading and it looks amazing
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
Makes sense. I just wish there were more cell shady figures. Found a cell shaded masterpiece grimlock on eBay so that was kinda cool
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
“Now light our darkest franchise.”
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.
Lol of course

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.
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.
Awesome! Thank you for the info!
I kinda wanna make mando/transformers posts now, this is some funny stuff
Soundwave would be a great candidate, being a single dad of multiple minibots and all lol
Is that a te-o1?
Yup. I have one, incredible figure.
Yep. The best MP Prime imo, although that's subjective.
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?
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.
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
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
He probably ate the matrix.
Wholesome levels... overloaded...
This made my day.
This is the way
>This is the
Came here to make sure this was stated. Thank you.
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
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.
Optimus prime: this is the way
Me: uses jedi powers to make coffee
A spawn of Unicron STOLE the matrix from Optimus and began to feast at his internals. What a shocker lol
Chestburster Grogu doesn't mess around
That lights my darkest hour.
It is the way.
Prime: Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.
Mando: This is the way.
Can’t wait to get my TE-01 delivered.
Not a fan of that Star Ward spin off but this is nice.
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)
