Best optimus prime 3rd party figure, better then mp-44 and affordable, the transformation is not so bad either if you follow the instructions carefully but otherwise great figure highly recommend.

This Prime is really good. I got it for my son who also collects. It looks way better than my MP-10. I rate it 4 just because after a while, if one plays with it, the elbows can get a bit loose.

What is there to say about this guy that hasn't already been said? He's the best FEELING transformer I've ever had the pleasure of handling. Articulation is top notch, he looks outstanding, you don't have to worry about paint chipping, and he's a figure you'd actually WANT to transform. My only complaint is the antennas are easy to get mangled in the transformation. Even then, he's still 1000% worth getting. Seriously, I can't say how much I'm glad I got this guy. Get him now before he goes up in price even more!

I usually go for the 3rd party figures when it comes to the main 6 characters as the Takara & Hasbro offerings are pretty mediocre. With that being said this offering from TF Element blows mp-44 out the water while also being so much more affordable. I would even say it is worth the price of the re issue($209). This bot is a solid weight with amazing articulation, many complain about the lack of a thigh swivel at the universal hip joint but there is a swivel at the knee which does the exact same job! The transformation is very difficult and although most bots I rarely even transform or care for their alt modes, obviously Prime's alt mode is more important therefore I wish it was a bit more intuitive as far as engineering. The Paint is amazing although I wish there was a bit more of it. The new head sculpt the re release comes with is superior in every way and is far more toon accurate. All and all if you have the money obviously MP-44 is the way to go but honestly this offering of prime is not far behind and considering the price point, in my opinion is just far better. You get much more for far less cost of admission. If you want a more stylized look I would go for the Magic Square offering, but if you are more of a toon guy, you can't get much better than TF Element's version of the most iconic bot in the Transformer Universe! Enjoy!

This version has different gas tanks they don’t have clear plastic and use a ball joint as well as a hinge.
This is the best MP Optimus ever.

Fantastic figure. Detailed sculpt that is accurate. After watching so many comparison videos I decided on this because I felt the execution was the best.

I got the v3 of this figure on10-26-20 and love it also got their te-03 phantom/speed star 11-27-20 they are both great and no issues. I am waiting on TE-01A CELL of this figure too from TFS pre-order. This is one the best OPTIMUS PRIME figures to date other then MP-44 who is great but over price and oc issuses.Going to put one with my fans hobby trailer and switch the other one between it and MP-10 not giving MP- 10 away love it also.Now i have three primes to go with my three megs and they will look great in my display recommend good buys all around and good luck.Gonna love the prime/megs poses.

This is my favourite MP version of the autobot leader himself!

He looks perfect in both modes, and the price is quite good comparing to the alternatives. I'd have preferred a few more accessories but what he has are pretty good.

Poseability is just enough. And he is heavy and so sturdy. I did encounter a huge problem with my copy tho... You see the head shoulder component is connected via a tiny screw and on mine the component fell off with no DIY way to fix it. I'm getting sent a new figure/repair so we'll see how it goes.

I'm sure it was just my copy and not the general quality of the toy (since I watched several reviews) but it still left a bad taste in my mouth in an otherwise 5/5 figure. Looking forward to transform elements other creations tho.

I purchased the 4th version of this figure and I have to say, I am blown away. Such a solid figure with excellent robot and vehicle modes. And it’s actually fun to transform! Will be selling my MP-44 and replacing him with this guy in my collection.

My only complaint is that it doesn't have individually articulated fingers.

Cannot stop staring at it. Makes my inner child talk like Optimus and just hum the theme song.

I had originally planned on getting MS Light of Freedom for my MP Optimus, but after I watched and read some reviews, I decided I preferred the proportions and accessories of TE, and got him instead.

I do not regret my choice in the slightest.

TE-01 is an amazing figure. His Sculpt is great, he looks cleaner than MP-44, has a complicated, but not frustrating transformation, and he looks and scales fantastically next to MP-36.

Unfortunately, I have noticed that there are a few criticisms TE gets that cloud up his reputation, and I don't think either are just.

1)No thigh swivel- This isn't entirely correct. TE does not have a thigh swivel at the thigh, but his knee swivel is ABOVE the bend, acting the same way, and giving his legs the same amount of range.
2) The Bumper Butt- I have seen people refer to TE's bumper-butt in their review like it's badly integrated and looks awful. It really doesn't, the bumper compacts nicely, and it looks like the back of his skirt armor.

One concern I do have for this figure is in the transformation. When you split the leg/waste units in half to become the truck's wheelbase, each unit is supported by a 2cm plastic slide. I wish those slides were die-cast, because I fear the weight of the legs could break them over time.

That concern at the end isn't enough to make me give up a star, because most won't transform TE that often, and all his good qualities make up for the issue.

I recommend this figure to any MP collectors, or if you are just a fan of Optimus Prime.

This figure is amazing. Cleaner sculpt and transformation than MP-44 with only slightly less articulation and for a third of the price.

This company came out of nowhere and if this is the caliber of figures we can expect from them I will get them all.

Aesthetics and Sculpt 4.5 Stars. Very toon accurate with just enough added flair. Proportions spot on. Paint is good though a lil more couldn't have hurt. My only complaint is that mine has a couple sprue marks that weren't cleaned up. but they are fairly minor and unnoticeable.

Engineering 4.5 stars. This thing is solid as a rock with great tolerances. transformation is new and unique for a Prime figure which is refreshing, but a lil complex. Articulation is really good. MP-44 articulation is technically better but suffers in sculpt and engineering because of it.

Accessories 4.5 stars. No trailer but half the time big accessories get thrown in the closet anyway. Light up gun is nice.

Compared to it's Master Piece version this is actually pretty awesome. It's look is basically the animated series and for nearly half the price you can't go wrong. Scale wise to my other Transformers is nearly perfect and to me that's important. Don't hesitate and purchase this bad boy you won't regret it!

TE-01 OP Leader, such a great figure!!! Feels great in hand, plastic feels solid, not intimidating to handle at all. Would definitely recommend over other alternative figures.

It's hard to admit, but TE-01 is superior to MP-44 in every way: It has a cleaner look in both modes without any excess kibble or backpack, and is quite literally hundreds of dollars cheaper.

This purchase was a no-brainer for me.
Now, the only issues I have are so nitpicky as to not even factor into my review, but I feel they should be mentioned for posterity:
-The hands are a bit crude, but only by my standards. 3rd party companies like Fans Toys and KFC have really spoiled me with their use of fully articulated fingers.
-There's no blue protrusion on his lower back and butt to match the cartoon model. Again, hardly worth mentioning, all things considered.

I cannot recommend this figure highly enough. I was beyond excited to receive it and it surpassed my absurdly high expectations in all the right places and more. Well-freakin'-done Transform Element.

One of my favorites, great heft zero backpack, long and slender with flat paint in the right places. 5/5!

I love him. I got him to compliment my Ms and mp10. I have yet to transform him. I like the v1 head more then the v2. I like the v2 don't get me wrong but his v1 head looks better. Lucky for me he has both

When the new MP Prime price was announced, my heart sank. He looked great, but 400 bucks?? So I saw how good this guy looked and took a shot. Fantastic. Super clean transformation, very cartoon accurate and even manages to be compatible with MP-10's trailer via a little hitch accessory. I don't know where this company came from but I hope they do more, because the materials and engineering on their not-prime are both excellent. Well worth your time.

This guy is right up there now as one of my favorite pieces. He looks absolutely amazing, he's spot-on cartoon accurate, hes got diecast, great poseability, great accessories, the box and packaging are fantastic...the one shipping now is the second run with the alternate, more show accurate head...even comes with a mini screw driver to change it out.

You get your $'s worth with this guy. Hate to say takara/hasbro, but you missed the boat...$450? This guy checks all my boxes, including 1/4 of the price. No-brainer for me. I can't wait to see more MP scale offerings from this company.
