    I'd have to say that Inferno and the vanbros are the best made official MPs since Takara switched to the current design.

    Holy Shit!!!!!

    I shipped him Dec. 6th and I finally got Inferno today.

    I highly approve as does my 3 yr old who was digging the fire truck alt mode and the robot mode as well.

    Pretty damned amazing engineering I must say....... A lot on it to impress you. Ladder goes bye bye, front side and rear view clean. Amzing damned figure.

    I'm trying to figure out why anyone was crying about him and he has a ton of accessories to boot!

    This damned thing has my vote! Bring on Grapple and Artfire dammit! Full speed ahead!

    I think I'm leaning towards official MP for my Inferno. I've been dithering, so many options now.

    I don't mind the simplified cartoon look, though IMO they could've left everything else as is but given him the G1 toy/3P-like detailing on the feet. Just the silver rear bumper/toe section. They could even have made a it detatchable so you could have plain red feet or red feet with silver bumper toes... I mean they made an entire interchangeable toy/cartoon front section so it's not much of a stretch. That silver toe section really helps break up all the red and makes the rear of the vehicle mode look more interesting.

    I really like my Inferno and will be getting Grapple too.... but why are they like Ultra Magnus price?!

    I mean, they are not that much more complicated than Ironhide and Ratchet, are they?

    I want him so much...but I can't justify to myself spending more than for Magnus. What difficult decisions a nerd has to take...

    If it's a money thing, just do it. Embrace your nerdiness and eat cheap meals for a week to 10 days.

    Or wait for the knock off.

    No wait. Knock offs are wrong, and reduce Brian Goldner's bonus.

    Well, I have to agree that starving is a small price to pay for a new masterpiece.

    If anyone in the US wants to buy a slightly used MP Inferno, I have one for sale. Only been transformed twice, has all the accessories, papers, etc. Only QC issue is the common issue of the left forearm panel not tabbing in all the way. Never bothered to file the tab down to correct it. Everything is in great shape. PM if interested. Thanks. :)

    I got this the other day and first impressions are it is a fantastic toy, but I'm definitely in the "it needs a bit more sculpted detail" camp. I think it's a little bland in some areas and for me this is a negative aspect of sticking too close to the cartoon aspect.

    Kind of pissed I missed preorders from overseas on him(Grapple).............

    Definitely makes the wallet hurt more.

    Was nice when we didnt get killed for them domestically. I get exchange rates, but its been in our favor for awhile again and the domestic guys dont pass it on to us like they used to.


    Edited: damned thing didnt copy and past quote about Grapple
