$80 on amazon jp? Holy crap, will my $50 gift card work on it?
Once this guy is release, we need a Hound, or a Jazz. Yes?
Add Mirage to that and it's the Core Four for a lot of people. Sunstreaker, Hound, Mirage, and Jazz are a lot of people's favorites. My personal 4 favorites, but everyone has a fav in that set it seems.
Only if it's a Amazon.jp gift card.
Have they released the box art yet? December is only 2 months away.
OMG, we do!
You'd think, as popular as those two are, 3P companies would have done them justice by now (for those that buy 3P once in a while). But no, they simply release below average options that are laughable at best. One is a monster truck able to destroy Prime himself, and the other is the worst Porsche I have ever seen in my life. Porsche should nuke Matetoys out of existence for doing that.
We need TT to kill it with these!
I could not resist any longer. Gave in and preordered from NY for 9820 yen ($90 usd with PayPal conversion, 200 yen more than amazon.jp) total shipped. I would do amazon but I don’t think I have a CC without foreign transaction fees.
Might have been cheaper to use your own bank's conversion rate? Paypal's is usually pretty bad.
Yes I'm can't wait to replace sunsurge with this guy.
No worries about Jazz, Hound, and Mirage, they will be coming. Along with Insecticons and Refelctor. Takara needs to stop with Bw and Mpm. With Takara doing other lines in the Mp line, unfortunately it's gonna be a while before we get all those I just mentioned. But the light is green on them.
If you like their current direction with the more toon look. You won't be disappointed. Sunstreaker to my eyes looks much better then Sunsurge. I really can't wait.
Disagree- Takara had years to do these characters and didnt budge. They have more people (aka designers) working on the MP line than ever before now and should be able to work on multiple lines at once
Well they ain't and won't. Fact is the G1 Mp line is gonna move slow. With Beast Wars and Bayverse taking up slots. Us G1 guys are shit outta luck. Yes they had enough time, but they didn't move their arse.
Switched my PO from BBTS to Amazon. $86 shipped is just too good a deal to pass up.
I love a lot of 3rd party toys but none of the manufacturers have produced a carbot that comes close to, say, the official Prowl or Wheeljack. Hell, they haven't even matched Tracks! Takara all the way for me when it comes to the long overdue likes of Hound, Mirage, Trailbreaker and Jazz.
I have to agree with you for the most part. But I think imo Spinx is close. I think he beats Tracks slightly. Prowl and the others no. I think Ocular max Trailbreaker and Xtb Hoist are pretty good. But I really think Sunstreaker beats out Sunsurge again as I said before. And Sunsurge is nice, but if anything a fill in. At least for me that's how it goes. But I would say Takara's is very beatable by Ft or maybe Kfc/Xtb.
I love FT when it comes to the larger figures but Willis is too large in vehicle mode and their Hot Rod and Trailbreaker look... Well, 'adequate' for want of a better term. Xtb often look the part but I'm not convinced they feel premium in hand.
Yes Willis is to big. I forgot about him. So far their Trailbreaker looks pretty good. Xtb can be a hit or miss. But I have their Hoist, Eligos, and Andras. Andreas feels premium to me in hand and the other two as well. It's more of a opinion. I don't like Ft Hoodlum, but Takara's Hotrod the whole silly chest isn't better. They both for me come up short.
You know talking about Willis being to big. Makes me hope that Hound from Takara is smaller in altmode. I'm not saying minibot because that's not gonna happen. But I say Hound is or should be between minibot and carbot size. Big ass jeep like Willis looks a bit silly when in alt mode with the other official carbots and Mp10.
Even if I get MP Sunstreaker, Sunsurge won't be going anywhere. Every indication is that MP Sunstreaker's alt mode won't scale with his brother and it's also missing the beautiful chrome that someone as vain as Sunstreaker deserves.
