    Transformation was pretty easy. As far as joints, the head is a tad loose and the knees could be tighter, but still not bad.

    Sphinx is the best 3P MP Autobot car. I wish there were other characters done in the same style and of the same quality. I bought the other Ocular Max ones but they don't cut it.

    Those are awesome pics. Sphinx and Willis really look good together (must be all that die cast). Have you checked out the shoulder adapter for Willis from ATP designs? It moves the launcher away from his head (more like where it is in the cartoon) and keeps it from popping out of socket so easily.

    In the end I bought him. The positive reviews and the fact that Mirage is probably the least likely of the carbots to have an official release gave me the decisive push. I'm looking forward to the moment when I'll have him in my hands.

    I would put him at 3rd least likely to get an official release. Porsche will most likely hold up Cliffjumper and Jazz from ever getting a licenced MP release through TT.

    Between Porsche and Ligier, I don't know what is the most difficult license to obtain, but I agree that all these characters will give Takara an hard time, and risk never seeing the light. That's why I'm also pondering about trying to hunt for as MT Downbeat, just in case.

    Downbeat is pretty awesome too. He has a crazy ab crunch. He can just about touch his toes. Really possible.

    Yeah, but his prices are getting to be Willis-like crazy.

    You're gonna want to keep a really close eye on that one. I saw a bunch of people on facebook talking about the crazy pricing "deals" from this specific seller (check out his other items), and it appears to me that someone got their feedback really high and is about to go rogue. I mean, if you're really able to get the products he's posting at the prices he's selling them for, then I'm really happy for you -- I just don't think it's going to work out that way (unfortunately)

    yeh, you are likely right.
    I took a chance on the one, can always get my money back.

    The red flag after i ordered was the fantoys swoop for $50

    I contacted eBay to report that it appears like that seller is about to go rogue and most of their listed items were at too good to be true prices.

    Credit card has it covered too.
