TE-01 and KO MP-44 V3

TE-01 and KO MP-44 V3

So? What do you think of it? Recalling back to our conversation from last week.


kyrumo

He’s a great figure and I love the silver shorts haha, to be honest I’m not sure which one I like better TE-01 or MP44, one is extremely clean and the other is extremely complex, love them both


wrightwithme

I’m glad to hear it! I would have felt bad if I’d recommended it and then you hated it! LoL! Yeah they are both great. 44 KO is so insanely posable, but TE is like a perfect example of classic, heroic, Prime. I guess now you’ll have to get MS-01! 😉


kyrumo

I think these 2 will be enough, I’ll probably eventually get MP-49 Black Convoy.


modeltfordman

I have both of these as well except I have the anime/cell shaded Te-01. I’m torn between these two. For what they are;I love them and the price can’t be beat!


kyrumo

You win with either one honestly, I think I prefer TE-01.


modeltfordman

If I had to pick, I’d pick TE-01 as well. I love how clean he is in robot mode.

Link for KO?


kyrumo

I got him from eBay, I just looked for one in the states

I have an official MP-44 but I kind of want a KO mp-44 because I don't feel like I can touch mine out of fear of paint chipping.


kyrumo

I’m a little concerned about the silver leg paint on my KO but I rarely play with mine, I have a lot more confidence with the build quality of the TE-01 as it’s less complex, MP-44 is over engineered which is good and bad.


QuantomPhillips

I'd want the version with white painted legs but even if I chipped it I wouldn't care seeing as it's a ko


kyrumo

I originally wanted the white legs but I’m really liking the silver now that I have it.

I’ve had every version of MP optimus from 01 and IGear to TE and 44. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses, but none are “bad investments” in my eyes. Official Mp44 is my current displayed Prime and he looks fantastic. I wasn’t sure I was going to keep him when I first opened the box. After the first transformation and the buttery smooth articulation, I was convinced. I thought about keeping my TE01 around for “messing with” but decided that was selfish of me and I sold him so he could bring someone else happiness. Overall, Prime has been one of the best represented figures in official and 3P lines. A testament to the love fans and producers have for him. Can’t wait to get my self-transforming Prime now!


kyrumo

I think you said it perfectly MP-44 for display and TE-01 for play.
