Looks a bit like a Terminator...

Are the figures identical for Prime and Bumblebee (bar clip on armour and the like), or are the 'protoforms' different?

I'm more interested in Bumblebee, and would be all the more if the figure were different.

New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).

Ah, but what does it matter if it's the same as another figure you don't want? ;)

Would imagine the two are different unless they both fold up for the vehicle modes identically.

Concept was better than the execution, from the looks of Prime.

Trouble is, I really don't like the design of Prime's Protoform.

Right, I have the trans-scanning Optimus now.

It's a fragile little piece of junk. The ankle pins were drilled at the wrong angle, so its left foot snapped off. I've got it fixed now, but that's beside the point.

Also, it came without instructions, despite being sealed. GO TAKARA!

I want to like this thing since it's such a neat idea, but I don't think it's going to happen. :eyebrow:

Tak spent their money on security, that's why less takara prototypes/test shots are out there. There's no money left for QC ;) . It still is ***ing bad QC, i grant you.

I'm getting too many responses in a certain fashion from users, so anything i tag with this, ;), should be taken as sarcasm.

That debate would best be left in the thread in which it is currently ongoing, rather than dragging it across the board if you don't mind.
