Note: This is the 2nd edition, which improves upon some of the flaws/parts of the original.
Masterpiece Rodimus Prime includes a fully transforming trailer and is highly articulated including a strong attention to detail with character traits very much in line with the Rodimus Prime from the original Transformers movie. This piece is very large, similar to MP-04 Perfect edition prime, including his trailer and accessories. This figure is part of the Transformers 2010 tribute from Takara Tomy, paying homage to the great figures from the vintage G1 2010 line-up!
"Best Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime figure and 2nd ed fixes"
- The biggest improvements that I noticed so far is that his legs' side panels can be detached without breaking them; he can hold his gun securely; and his torso locks tightly onto his back. Whats not improved is his spoiler is painted yellow instead of just yellow plastic, so you still need to be careful when sliding it into his trailer. If you read the instructions, or better yet look up the various mp-09 reviews on youtube, you should have no problem locking everything perfectly in place in his vehicle modes. I have transformed him 6x back and forth and so far nothing is broken. Well what can I say...This is the best looking and most G1 movie/show accurate Hotrod/Rodimus Prime figure ever released, don't miss out on it!
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
