If you're interested in a comparison with an alternator/binaltechy-fellow in the photo, I could easily take one to compliment your photo-shoot. My white panels should be large enough, and he's always out on display with BT-Tracks anyhoo (and currently as Alt Prime infront of him, in transit [to the box with most of my collection] since he got kicked from his display spot in favour of Classics UM & Skywarp).

I use the same boards for all my photos, and will be taking some of the Classics Dinobots soon (probably Monday or Tuesday, as am away for a Reptile Conservation conference this weekend).

So...

Just let me know!

Hi - git back a day late from Scottish Reptile & Amphibian Conservation Conference, so will be taking photos for Classics Mini-Con Dinobots tomorrow now (for upcoming review).

Would you like me to take any photos of MP-04 while I'm at it?

Sure, but I'll try to take some tonight myself.

Gotta take those photos of the MD Shockwave anyway, so I might as well take those too.

I've taken a flurry of photos with MP-04 and BT Tracks and Alt. Prime, and you can pick and choose if you want any.

First up is the trailer in base mode with Tracks.

... and, you guessed it! the same, but with Alt. Prime.

Hope that there's a photo in there you'd like for comparison porpoises... I certainly enjoyed taking them (I don't get Tracks off for playing with too often, due to his awkwardness really, and Convoy has sat in one pose for far too long, even if he is awaiting MP-05 and the final battle!), and it prompted a change of my display, so was worth it even if you'd rather not use any.

I finally got some photos...but looks like I could use a little help with the photo of Prime manning the base mode trailer - the thing is just too big, my cardboard sheets weren't big enough!

Robot mode

Vehicle mode

EDIT: I resume being unhappy with the way the Base mode photos turn up. Grrrrrr.

I think your base mode photo looks great.

Default Memories and Battle Damage

Always had some form pet,dogs,cats. Been having rats because
I don't want be unkind to friends. Would pick up a few robots,some
in vehicle mode,others. My Sweeties had a fondness for Hot shot amongst many. They'd roll em off the top of the kitchen cabinet,quite
frequently,giving the looks of...more. Durable little guy,got a little
damage on the roof panels. Land Bullet was dropped countless times.


They seemed to want to nibble at Skyfire's
laser rifle,wouldn't even know. Constructacons would be played wrestled with like exhibition wrestlers, Can still find the little preening
marks. Fun.

Tetsuro: this is your last chance to finish the review. Have it done before the 24th and it can go up with the rest of the updates. Otherwise, I'm just going to lock this and delete it at a later date.

So THAT's why this review hasn't been put up yet. I had totally forgotten to include a score!

Transformation: 9/10 - Complex but relatively easy to master. Certainly nowhere as time-consuming as Masterpiece Megatron.
Durability: 7/10 - The trailer feels rather flimsy, but Prime himself is durable as a brick; the ease at which the shoulder logo and die cast paint chips and scratches, on his torso in particular, drop the score severely. Mine is already full of spots with the dark grey die cast exposed.
Fun: 9/10 - It's rather difficult to call this "fun", since Masterpieces are closer to collectables than toys. However, the trailer adds a huge deal in the fun factor, thanks to the whole aspect of being able to interact with Binaltechs/Alternators.
Price: 5/10 - Almost twice the price for the addition of...trailer? No wonder so many people have opted to go for the bootleg version, despite my personal opinion that the giant stickers make it look awfully tacky. At least the official trailer has storage slots for all of Prime's accessories.
Overall: 8/10 - Hmmm. If you already own the original version, I can't really say this is worth the update. If not...well, the red paint on his torso chips so ridicilously easy, but having never owned the original version, I can't say how different it is.

Mine has recently suffered some severe falls, and survived fine, with few scratches anywhere except the smokestacks.

Pretty solid chap!

Megs, on the otherhand, came away with more chips (on the plastic parts, oddly!).

My Prime seems to get chipped no matter how careful I am. As a matter of fact, I'm trying to figure out what paint shall I use to patch up those ugly spots on him.

Megatron, in the other hand...my fingertips sustain more damage than Megs every time I transform him.
