I am having a lot of fun messing around with my Masterpeice Primes!
The last one gave me a "Give me your face!" moment!
Can someone give me a quick rundown on this guy? I followed this thread early on when the Hasbro version was first released and I have the impression he had a few missing paint apps and didn't peg together well in vehicle mode. The takara seems better (though not perfect) at tabbing and has different grey plastic. Is there a consensus one to get? Any definite mods to make? Thanks in advance!
Please see the attached pic for extra paint apps on the TT version.
I have circled the extra gold paint the TT version has over the Hasbro version.
The TT version also has a tiny Autobot insignia paint app (just above the 2 gold circles on his abs) that the Hasbro version doesn’t.
All the grey plastic on the TT version (including the gun) is a darker shade of grey on the Hasbro version.
I don’t own the Hasbro version so cannot comment on the mold or tabbing issues.
My TT version tabs in perfectly for robot mode.
RE truck mode in order to get it to tab in correctly, I did have to go back and forth a few times (you tab in one section and another section untabs and vice versa) until it all tabbed in (no modding needed at all).
I hate to justify why a Transformer has problems (as it shouldn’t if it is designed properly) but MPM-04 is more complex than most MP figures and does an amazing job of doing both modes justice whilst also being very articulated and posable.
I don't like seeing mom and dad fight.
It was just a healthy bit of sparring.
They still love each other!
It is absolutely nuts what a difference 5+ years of engineering can make and that picture is proof in a good way.
Is that official MP-10 or KBB MP10V?
Looks like official yoth mp-10 that’s been customised a little. Mp-10 is a little shorter than mpm-04
I haven't opened my official MP-10 for 5 years.
Seems I'm lost at scale a bit.
And the MPM-4 sometimes playing (Genjutsu / Jedi Mind) scale tricks on my eyes.
The MPM-4 Compressed Box probably the culprit.
Agreed! I love my MP-10, but the MPM-04 had some really neat tricks that really shows how far they have come.
You are correct! I didn't like the gold chrome, but I liked the dark colors and it was affordable.
So whats the difference between the hasbro and the Takara release?

I finally bit the bullet and ordered this one. I should be getting it at the end of the week. I haven't seen much about these sets so I'll post some pictures when I get it. Looking forward to getting it. Between that and the mods I'm doing (i'm just slowly shaving down some tabs to help with vehicle mode, being REALLY conservative) I think this may be the final movie OP I get for a while.
I Just found out about the Mr. bucket upgrade set, so MR01 would be better suited for Hasbro and MR01B for Takara?
Wow, I didn't realize that MPM-4 was that much taller than MP-10.
He has his hips extended for more height.
I think the extended hips are the "correct way" to put the robot mode, the blue pieces of the thighs shouldn't be closer to the ones of the waist.
