    I hope Michael Bay comes to your house and forces you to watch all 14 other Transformers films he had planned.

    Oof definitely.

    WANT NOW.


    Also, i've noticed how he redesigned the golden accents and blue bits in the waist.


    He also remolded the guns. Nice.

    I'm looking at mine at my desk at work... Of the things you listed, the only things I dislike are the way the elbows are designed, and even then it looks fine in most poses. (you can pose around it... you shouldn't have to, but you can, and it's not particularly hard.) The chest looks great, the feet are fine. Actually one thing I don't like is the part of the torso immediately above the waist... that red block behind the blue panels that sweep down breaks the 'organic' illusion. Other than that one part and the elbows it doesn't seem like the same figure AT ALL.

    Also, there's a bunch of detail that's not in the smaller one. It's not just an upscale AT ALL.

    I think people sometimes conflate the issue of the MOLDING with the issue of the ENGINEERING. The MOLD is just fine at this scale. It doesn't look weird. The details are sharp and in proportion to the figure as a whole. The problem, fundamentally, is that because it transforms the same way as the Voyager (with a few minor twists), it's not using the space afforded by its sheer size in the best possible way. A re-engineered transformation would fix the elbows and the torso-just-above-the-hips, for example.

    I think that's gonna be WAY less of a problem for the OS MPM OP though. The OS Evasion Mode upscaled a Voyager figure... a somewhat small one, at that. The OS MPM is upscaling a figure that was already significantly bigger and more complex (MP-10 sized); I think the engineering is actually going to work BETTER at that scale, much as MPM-10 does.

    I could think of far worse punishments than watching all planned Transformer movies with Michael Bay. I think that would actually be quite fun.

    What if I told you that each film progressively gets worse, starting at ROTF/TLK quality, get longer, and you have to watch them back to back, no breaks allowed?

    This could apply to any movie and people wouldn't like it.

    Say for example, the Saw franchise.

    Yay, Sean Spencer!
    I've mentored before is like to see his visors more movie accurate like the leader Prime. Another thing that I personally haven't read suggested is a fix for his throat gap. Maybe put something on his neck that fills in the space when he looks up...

    Bring it- because it’s been my experience that RotF wasn’t as bad as people make it out to be.

    This won't be for my MPM collection, but it will be amazing in its own, i will use it as a standalone figure for now. (well, when they release it)

    Yeah, exactly.


    I kind of want a big MPM prime version with more fixes, just to be be even more cooler.


    However, let's see how it goes the official SCALE.

    it really depends, it's easily the tallest movie figure outside of Supreme Devy.

    Oh great this thread now has the exact same title as LT-02’s thread. Couldn’t just have a ‘modified’ in this title or something? Sigh. It’ll be ‘KO MP-36’ all over again :rolleyes: .
