I remember these things being in the planning stages a few years ago, but thought production was halted. Apparently, they were still released but not for a mass market. I was able to snag one (courtesy of Zfeakye) and here are a few pics of it. The box is nice looking and would make a great display piece for all of you MISB collectors. Once opened, you can see that there are no plastic or foam inserts to protect the piece, most everything is loose. The pieces have a rough, resin feel to them and your hands are left feeling chalky after handling it for a while. Here you see all of the pieces, including an instruction booklet. Here I've got them laid out where they're supposed to go, assembly-wise. So far, so good. Here it is, fully assembled minus the head. As you can see, it isn't really that different from G1 Ultra Magnus in terms of the brick/blocky look. While it does offer some movement while armored up, it's still not a whole lot. The hands are not articulated, and the gun barely fits inside the fist. The gun has an LED trigger for it. Here it is with the head. As you can see, it is too large and out of proportion with the rest of the figure. Also, some of the pieces fit on VERY tightly, so you may have a bit of CrazyDevy syndrome happening where scratches and/or paint rubbing will occur. Vehicle mode is definitely better to look at, but it has it's own share of problems. In addition to being held together fairly flimsy, the top part doesn't line up properly and the rocket launchers don't insert fully into their pegs. All in all, it was a noble effort but the final product just doesn't measure up. If anything, this just shows that even if it were official Takara-Tomy product, the range of motion would still likely be severely limited because of the added bulk, so a "perfect edition" of MP-02 still isn't very likely, IMO. In the hands of a kitbasher, you could probably make some adjustments, tweaks (definitely a new head) and other improvements here and there to make it a nicer display piece. As it is...well, it was a good try.
