    hey everyone !!! it,s been a while but meg mp-xx is back !!! as you can see i,m trying to stay true to the g1 look.... the silencer is big but proportionate .... BIG !! also you can notice part of his leg transforms into the arm rest.... not an easy thing to do trust me on that.... now i will design the alternate mode of the barrel !!! more to come soon.... you can also check the progress here !!!

    Man, that sounds awsome. How much are you looking to get for your MP Magnus trailers, and are you still making them?

    hard to say..... but this one will be well... everything that i always wanted to include in any of my design and the robot mode will be about 95% pure g1 metroplex... the rest and the city mode will be a blend of autobot city (the real city and not the actually g1 toy mode) and the atlantis city from stagate atlantis.....so you can see that this will be a highly detailled figure ....and with 3 feet high i will have the space to do everything that i want to do !!! so yeah the price will be HIGH but will dwarf allot of projects that are around......

    It's nice, but for $950, with a much better Megatron coming out...

    You know TAKARA's gonna screw up MP-Megs somehow, plus anemis' Megs is the best I've ever seen!

    Yeah, I'd have to agree.

    While Anemis' Megs is ambitious, the final fit and finish of the whole thing leaves a lot to be desired in my eyes...I just expect more polish on a piece for that kind of price tag.

    Well, unless you've got $1,000 and are looking for customs to buy, something tells me you're not the target audience. Besides, something tells me this is just for fun anyhow. How many prop makers get hundreds of dollars for something made out of resin? At least his transforms! ;) 

    I'm just glad we get to watch these free. :)

    you think what you see here is the final product ??? even painted it will be retouched and retouched and retouched until it becomes perfect.... i dont settle for anything less.....

    my mp-02 trailer got retouched allot of time by the time i got it into mass production...so what you see here is nowhere near complete....

    Although it's good to hear that additional refinements will be made. Judging from your previous endeavors, like the MP01 trailer, or Magnus custom, the finished product just remains a little too rough around the edges for my personal taste.
