    He's trolling TCracker. He thinks TC is a liar and still randomly makes fun of him. Only a handful of people know his game so I'm not sure who he's talking to. It does seem slightly immature and overtly defensive.

    Edit: everyone I was speaking about something that I didn't fully understand. I retract this statement completely. He was not trolling TC. Want there may be a whole lot more to this that I need to stick my nose into.

    Man this MP just oozes personality. And with the level of posability he seems to have he's just gonna blow every other carbots out of the water isn't he? I hope he's a solid as Wheeljack or Sideswipe. The fight between him and Megatron for MP of the year is gonna be frickin' epic!

    Hopefully this figure doesn't suck. The figures have been hit or miss over the releases since Tracks IMO and I am really waiting for a figure to wow me like wheeljack did when it was released. That plus the price hikes have me kind of feeling meh about the MP line

    That's a shame to hear, dude. Wheeljack is definitely a favourite of mine too, I'm looking forward to a + release with all of his accessories and a nice glossy coat of cartoon-accurate paint even more though, ever since I sold him!

    Since Tracks though we've gotten all my favourites, Ironhide, Shockwave, Megatron, these are top of the line for me. Grapple is great too.

    I think Sunstreaker looks like a Wheeljack level carbot but with even better articulation, more accessories, more car gimmicks, a slick coat of paint - basically all the bells and whistles we could possibly want. This time a year ago I was putting my Sideswipe up for sale thinking if we ever get Sunstreaker he'll probably be the last carbot, so to be at this point with MP-39 and MP-12+ as prospective 2017 Xmas presents is pretty sweet.

    Also I think Takara have nailed their chrome issues, the chrome on Artfire is solid as hell. I was rubbing away removing those tampos from his bumper for my toy-Grapple kitbash and it's not even dulled. Which is reassuring, after the mess we got with Ironhide and Hot Rod.

    I really don't think anything could possibly go wrong with Sunstreaker. TT even addressed paint QC issues in their last interview saying they want to avoid them.

    Not me. Ironhide is only beat by Magnus for the lowest point post Hasui in the MP series. He went back into his box a long time ago while Magnus was sold outright.

    Megatron could be up there with a different paint scheme and if I didn't feel like I was going to break him every time I tried to get him into gun mode. Last last step of getting his arms in place is just plain scary.

    Ayeeeee! All the nitpicking. MP-39 is going to be wickedly awesome when it comes out. MP-36 is going to drop a load in his diapers once MP Sunstreaker hits retail. $120? Worth. Every. Dollar.

    MP Collector person: "Damn, Sunstreaker! You're amazing in every way! You're the best MP ever!"
    MP Sunstreaker: "I know. And you're welcome."

    100% agree.

    I don't know why some people even bother coming into MP threads, it's like they enjoy punishing themselves.

    What different experiences we all have as collectors in this fandom! I actually find Magnus and Ironhide to be among the very best in the MP line and very last on my list of ones I'd sell, and I've transformed Megatron repeatedly, not even caring about the wear because I enjoyed it so much. And there is wear.

    But then, honestly, with so much product and such different entry points for us all, how did we ever expect to all share the same experience, interests and preferences?

    All the best

    The unwisest words would be: Hey, for the show, why don't we color this little guy blue, and this little guy red . . .

    On topic - SS is about $79 on Amazon JP right now - if you can get someone there to ship it to you, which is what I do, it's only about $12 shipping or so.

    All MP's have been amazing, even the ahead of it's time MP 09. I can agree on price, but then again nothing we can do about that.

    Yes they do. You just pay the Tenso fee on top of that.
