    To be fair it doesn't take much to make the Track MP mold look cheap.

    Heh, true. I do feel like he's more fun than a lot of MPs, though. Like, I'm glad I have MP shockwave, but that guy is booooring.

    Black rims over chrome/any rims any day of the week, haha. Anyways, that's one of my nit-picks with this figure. The rims should be totally different, they went with the actual production Camaro rims in a black color. They technically should be the concept Camaro rims, which are silver I believe? Honestly, the whole car should be the concept Camaro and not the actual production car, which is a bit different. I know many don't like the movies and that aesthetic but it's definitely MP quality and imo, puts some of the Takara G1 cars to shame with the amount of detail. The paint is also a bit too bright for my liking. Funny thing is, if you swapped MPM-3 paint with MP-21 paint, they'd both be perfect imo.

    Eagan Walmart has another set of Nitro and Scorn. That's about it.

    I don't get the black rim thing ..unless the vehicle is black I think they look terrible IMO.

    No transformers were harmed during the typing of this post.

    I dunno, I don't think they look too dark or too silver. The lighting doesn't do it justice, but they're more of a bronze. But then, I don't really care about alt modes as much as bot modes.

    Yeah, I guess they're not super dark...but I still don't like. Silver or chrome ftw.

    Agree.

    All this MPM Bumblebee rim talk. LOL I'd like to see Takara tackle an MPM Ratchet or Sideswipe here. I know it seems Barricade is next, which makes sense when thought about, and I know Mirage (refuse to call him Dino)is being done by a 3rd party since no way can Hasbro ever make the guy sadly.

    I want an MP Blackout, MP DOTM Soundwave, or even better, a MP DOTM Megs. With cloak.

    Or ice cream truck Skidz/Mudflap so I could marvel at the engineering once and then burn it.

    Personally, I much prefer to call them Dino and Que...because they don't deserve the names Mirage or Wheeljack.

    I'm with you on the Que/Wheeljack part, but the other one...I didn't mind Dino/Mirage's look. Shame we didn't get more of him on the screen than we did, but unless you're Optimus or Bumblebee you're basically background fodder in TF movies sadly.

    I didn't have any huge problem with the Dino character so much...he just wasn't Mirage. Like Goodman in the Marky movies...not very Hound like.

    To be fair, Optimus was only Optimus really in the first movie, then each subsequent movie after he became more and more Nemesis Prime until they actually turned him into that for like...two minutes of screen time.

    I can agree there. In AOE, I thought Prime was a dick and I don't think that was what they were aiming for...

    Jeepers, smart post with BBTS was overnight this time. So now I think it's ranged from 1-5 days.

    Really ? I've amassed probably my largest POL with BBTS due to all those 3rd party sales and some other things so need to time this carefully so this box/these boxes aren't sitting on my porch all day. No way I can have this shipped to my work. Mail dude would freak out.
