    Ironhide? I'm not sure what you mean I was just trying to be helpful reminding you that it's the import price your reffering to. Ironhide was less then Sunstreaker costing me is that what you mean bro?

    Not a good thing, in my opinion. Rubber cracks over time, as evident on MP-10. Unless HasTak is using a more resilient rubber now, plastic is my preference.

    Yeah, it is worse when you live in humid zones, they tend to break with the time (even in non-transformers figures).

    But, it in my Most honest feeling, i love rubber tires >.<

    In the knterview they said they got problems in the licencing of it, they needed to mantain the accuracy to the real vehicle.

    I do, too, and I'm willing to bet most people do. But IMO it's not worth it if the tires are just going to degrade in a few years.

    Not sure where y'all are seeing rubber tires. All I see are plastics, which is my personal preference. I think the wheels are too thin to be done in rubber, and if you look on the paint transition from the black to the silver first layer of the hubcaps, it doesn't show any indication of splitting into two pieces of a plastic hubcap x rubber tire (for further reference, think of the "deep dish" on an aftermarket car. That's the part I'm referring to)

    Yeah, speaking of rubber tires, the only ones that didn't broke are the ones from the (god bless the) Fire Convoy from RID, at least for me, they didn't, but i lost them instead -.-

    For some people that does happen, huh bro? Heavy play is it? I play with mine all the time though & ALL my figures are fine in that department i wonder why. Some are 20 years old too like Machine Wars Optimus Prime & RiD'00 Scourge. So it might be a thing about your environment. What part of the world do u live in?

    Your tires break too? None of mine have ever done that other then my 1960s Gijoe model kits. And yes it is the GIJOE brand just before they did 3.75" but I also have 1000s.if toys too so it's gotta be a environment thing. Idk that for sure though. I also keep alot of my stuff in the packaging afrer done displaying/playing with it.


    Oh and to answer the question by @eltonlin98 I an reffering to John Wardens talk about the new Masterpiece Movie Optimus having rubber tires.and diecast..So I'm guessing since it was in his hands when he said it, it's true or at least his copy did?

    Mind linking me to the source? I went back to the MPM 2017 Beijing showcase video and found no evidence of such a statement.

    To quote what he said:

    Articulated fingers, transforming heads, and even diecast parts. Premium deco and paint, Bumblebee's arm cannon and Prime's energy swords are some of the cool details included

    I live in a tropical country and the 20+ year old tires of my Lego Technic are just fine...

    Keep rubber away from UV and dry environments and all will be ok!

    Ahh good to know. I figured it was a situation of they had to get the figure out before their license was up. This is just a random thought when theu 1st announced him not in terms of what you/i were talking about before

    Probably thinking of the MP10 video then where he might of said it there and my memory just mixed the 2. I'll have to rewatch or something. If you honestly just watched the China video part then it's likely that's the case. I'll let you know if I run into anything different. I honestly thought that's what he said damn brain might of betrayed me :lol 

    Edit: wait John DID say it in the MP10 video did he not? I know I heard him say it somewhere the "BEING A TRUE MASTERPIECE BECAUSE IT HAS RUBBER TIRES"

    New pics look good. But now that we see it properly transformed, those windows really do sit too high...either that or his head is sunk too low.

    I'm still gonna get him for sure to support the line, and it'll definitely replace my ROTF Prime as my display Prime, however I must sadly admit I'm not as hyped as I was last month. Still hyped—just not as much
