That's Just Prime!

Woo... Hooo! That's just Prime!!! I'm excited, I liked the movie (despite a few nit-picks about the typical Michael Bayisms) and was hoping that Takara would do this again from the beginning.

I was really impressed with the DMK1 save for the whole "strip down the head to use both faces" act and its problematic 'metal plastic syndrome.' This kit looks like they found a balance between gimmick and details.

It looks like they're using the same inner frame as the first model, and seems like there's more painting work involved this time around for the more finite details. I'm also seeing fixed pose hands, look at the fingers of the open palm: no visible joints.

It looks good but the first

It looks good but the first one looks so convincing as the movie character, this one looks more like a toy. Something about the colors seems off.

Needs More

The problem with the colors is that it just needs more. There's more gold accents in the chest of the on-screen model and a few other areas. Small spots yes, but together they make a difference.

Edit: Good reference.
