Pretty decent

I passed on getting the MP-44 Optimus Prime, because I could hardly justify the price tag and I wasn't all that bothered about the trailer and copious amount of accessories - and I'm quite glad I waited.

Despite no die-cast parts (besides the matrix accessory) he still holds a very good amount of heft, and in robot mode this guy is TALL. I can't fault either modes of this guy, but I will say it's quite jarring that there's hardly any paint on this figure, and it's mostly just coloured plastic - this can give it an almost 3rd party feel but it's something you can get over fairly quickly. Plus, with some of the paint chipping issues the more recent masterpiece figures have had it's not the worst thing in the world.

Onto the knees. As I said, I never owned MP-44, but I'm well versed in the knee issue it had - Takara have given a somewhat rudimentary fix to that with this new release - by removing the small tab which was susceptible to breakage. It's worth mentioning though, that you should be careful when bending the knees of this figure as it can feel a little weak, and so I recommend you read up more on this figure's knee joints before purchase.

Besides that though, this is an outstanding figure, and once you get your head wrapped around the transformation it's a great product.
