    They're all "new" articles for Figure King.

    First look at the matrix and matrix chamber as well as a good look at Optimus' butterfly shoulder joints in action.

    Looking good! Thanks for the scans!

    I think the matrix looks the same as MP-10, I hope so. Mine is a bit chipped but I like having one that can fit in the Magnii and Hot Rod.

    The more I see Prowl the more it reminds me of the Sunbow character design sheet for him, especially the overall silhouette.

    Agreed man! Tbh at times I feel HasTak is just holding out on us - as in they can easily release updated CHUGs based on the G1 toon with earth based alternate modes.

    If they do that, I’ll issue Order 66 on my Master Piece collection.

    Dat “Never!” Pose tho.

    Brings tears to my eyes.

    It’s gonna be glorious having Prime and Mp36 Megs displayed together.

    Always a great day getting new MP shots, even if there are just a few.

    I guess I should be bothered there's nothing new...but I didn't pay for the magazine so I'll say:

    Thanks for posting the pics! And Happy New Year Everyone!

    I don't buy MP's, but V3 Optimus looks fantastic and nails the cartoon aesthetic and has some pretty damn awesome articulation! I may finally cave and get him and Megatron as standalone figures for my collection. I have MP10v with which I am very happy with for my CHUG but it is looking doubtful that KBB will ever get around to making a voyager scaled MP Megatron to go with him. I keep look at Hegemon to pair with MP10v, but the design seems inelegant beside Optimus.

    Optimus and Megatron are important enough to buy without going full completionist for MP, which I am doing with my CHUG collection.

    Side note, I finally remembered what is off on Siege Prowl, his lack of shoulder missiles. I am sure someone will make them for him (fingers crossed that Nonnef does it) as I was able to get a set for my CW Prowl. I didn't bother getting CW Smokescreen as I already had the Universe mold for him and Silverstreak/Bluestreak, but obviously the 3 look mismatched.

    Chromia just looks better and better but Soundwave and Ironhide will be the highlights of wave 2, but I still haven't been able to get wave 1 yet. :(

    Here’s hoping he won’t have any QC problems. That’s what has me at a pause after the trouble with MPM-06 Ironhide

    Just a few? We've got S1 Prime in a vanilla pose, the NEVER pose, open matrix chamber, and then most important of all Sparkplug manning one of the seats in the trailer, and a shot of Roller with refilling gear attached (surely everyone remembers those iconic scenes from the toon?! :lol )

    Probably could've put those €16 towards an Amazon giftcard, but fuck it I need all the physical Prime I can get between now and August! My cope of Figure King should arrive tomorrow.

    So do we have any confirmation if 44’s wheels on either him or roller are rubber or plastic ?

    Rubber on Prime, plastic on Roller, just like the G1 toy.

    This issue of Figure King was apparently so amazing that the article had to upload every image twice.

    Very odd that they decided to do rubber tires on this guy (even though MP10 did) given that the reaminder of the autobots have plastic tires. Hope this is a one off and future cars don't have it.
