MP+ Series

Postby IronhideTFX » Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:45 pm

So with Prowl being announced, it would make sense an Anime accurate Bluestreak and Smokescreen are on the cards.

How does everyone feel about this line?
I'm personally loving it. I would definitely be keen on a Mp+ Wheeljack (Mine arrived a little scratched and it always bugged me), and would LOVE a MP+ Prime.
I had the Japanese release, and would just love a bit more colour in his eyes (Like the USA version), and an Anime accurate cab colouring (No grey strips on the cab please).

Just curious everyones thoughts on it.

I’m personally not to fussed about them, but I do appreciate that it offers a way pick up older releases for a more reasonable price than the secondary market. And more options are always a good thing

Im liking them... as Thatotherguy has mentioned it allows us that have gotten into the MP line late (or back into in my case) to fill some gaps more easily than would have otherwise been possible. Plus certainly no complaints from me concerning show accurate colour schemes!

Initially I thought it was an easy pass. Now I’m thinking yes. I guess I want as close to the screen bot as possible.

I'm pretty excited about this. I think I'm going to order them as soon as I get the next paycheck. They look so neat.

I get that Japan is Convoy loving, but c'mon. Not really that fussed about a 3rd MP Prime mould. Unless they're doing things like double jointed arms/legs and shoulder/hip articulation. Even then...

MP 10 was to change the scale so that the autobot cars cold be smaller at a higher price point. I read this somewhere don't know if it's the truth but sounds legit. So I wonder what this change in mp Optimus will mean.

Looks good but it isn't an MP10-killer so to speak. MP10 still remains in god-status for me.

I think i need some clear head sculpt shots. That will be what seals the deal for me.

Its a buy though, 100%

Damn, me too. The red paint on the chest has a scratch and though I painted over it I could never quite match the red used on the figure.

As for the original question, I really like MP+, and the new direction the line is going in. I won't buy any of it though. I am perfectly happy with my Hasui style MP's where toy meets toon meets childhood memories.

I am tempted by MP44 though, but the price holds me back (good thing). Might just wait for the TE-01 Prime when it gets re-released with a new head.
