    Hello everyone in this fantastic and warm community,

    I don't know whether this belongs in the radicons boards or not. This is something I'm NOT making. My apologies for my incompetence if so. Just want to get the general consensus on MP10's articulation.

    It seemed so long ago that MP10 Convoy was considered the best transformer ever. I don't know if you felt that way but it was certainly impressive for its time. I love MP10 still to this day. It remains as of my favorite TFs ever. I have 3 of them (not enough, am I right?), but it seems that everyone is not satisfied with the mold now. Of course, an older a design gets, the more dated. Biggest complain I heard is about the articulation.

    Takara is going for a more toon look but that is not the point of this thread. If you want a toon look, go email a third party, demanding a new Prime. Preferably fanstoys or Maketoys to x transbot and KFC.

    For those who still love the Hasui aesthetics, how do you feel if MP10 recieved more articulation without the messy greeble in the newer masterpieces? If so, great! Here is my first IDEA for double jointed elbows. I'm not a designer just to let you know


    Honestly, if they just made the swivel a bit higher on the bicep and
    inserted a new elbow joint slightly lower, than it would have allowed for more space to curl the forearm. Its so EASY.

    Tell me what you think and feel free to ridicule me if this belongs in the radicons thread :) 

    Or ridicule me because you feel like it. If you need a clearer image, I'll take another picture

    Things to add to make it modern (I'll post more)

    - Forward butterfly joints
    - More outward shoulder movement (or just use backwards butterfly so maybe it is not nessecary).
    - Leg wheel disguise (not necessary to me but just use combiner wars leg flap opening trick).
    - Ball jointed head (super easy)
    - Ab crunch (super easy)
    - Double jointed knees (replace thigh pieces)
    - Waist skirts

    Let me know if there is more


    HAVE A GREAT DAY

    Lol, there is only one answer here. Why would someone not want extra articulation?

    Wonder how many people really use the "extra" articulation?

    I have hundreds of Transformers, have even 10 years without transforming several of them. I'm just happy watching them on the shelfts, so pretty happy with my current MP-10.

    Absolutely unnecessary - MP10 is absolutely fine. I am tired of people on these boards clamoring for a V3 of Optimus when MP10 is perfectly fine. Any changes would be marginal improvements.

    We need a V3 Prime.

    Mp-10 as much as good as it looks, it's outdated.

    If that's the case, let's remake MP10-20, because they are all going to be outdated relative to MP36 and MP39. It's absurd

    Yes because we so desperately need yet another Lambor. The Fairlady Z's are great the way they are, Soundwave is as perfect as you can get. But let's re-release all those other characters over the next two or three years because who really needs new official Masterpiece characters like Cliffjumper when Takara should really be focusing on remaking existing characters.

    I feel like the third option alot and I'm only 18. I know there are people decades older than me. Yet the feeling still looms.

    Yup. Arm articulation. I want to be able to have him hold his blaster with 2 hands instead of just the 1 or the other . Maybe better shoulder range of motion ..

    I do agree with you , and I want to like your post , but man , come on , and updated prime may be a good thing. Granted I love my MP-10 to death , but a newer “ fresher “ version would be good to have .

    Or rather we need all the MP's post 20 to be redone. An exageration. But Megatron and Sunstreaker at least would benefit from a design that leaves them with upperbodies that aren't composed of hinges.

    I am serious about the diaper- a few ppl on these boards have said that his pelvis should be bigger like the toon, but it really looks like a diaper

    It's strange how articulation and incontinence go hand in hand in the Masterpiece line.

    Well, I like to pose my figures, and better articulations means more poses. Sometimes it's a bit frustrating when you have this perfect mental image of how you want to show the toy but then iyou find that its joints can't achieve that.
    I too prefer that Takara focus on making new characters, but sooner or later G1 bots will end, and then we can start again with the improved versions.

    By the rate Takara is producing them it will be later rather than sooner.

    I suppose you could ask for more articulation, but then you end up with the MP-12 vs MP-39 argument over and over again. It's nice to have, but not need to have. The added cost and complexity, and quite frankly, the chance of something going wrong with all those extra moving parts, isn't worth it. I don't need to pose MP-10 doing jet jitsu, or throwing a shoryuken, or tossing a hadouken.

    But it'd be cool, yes.
