MP-12 designer Shogo Hasui has updated his Twitter account with a new photo of the MP-12 test shot.
^First thought for me too.
Loving all these proto pics. Really getting me excited for MP Sideswipe.
Still gutted they chose not to put in any interior details or opening doors - that would have helped sell it as something more than a well painted deluxe figure.
Meh, that would've gotten in the way of a great looking bot mode though.
Wow look at him go lol...he's a must have!
To everybody saying this is little more than a deluxe, have you looked at a deluxe nowadays? notice all the hollow parts to save plastic everywhere? notice them here? nuff' said..
I know I will be very happy with this and to me the scale is perfect. shame about the plastic tyres though, I'll give the naysayers that....
Sideswipe is sure articulated,nice pose
Where is his parachute??!!??
What Masterpiece Sideswipe does, he does well, it seems! I'm quite pleased with the articulation on show here and should the hands even be on par with those of the previous two MP releases, that will cap things off nicely.
I always see pictures of TF toys doing high kicks to show off stability, yet I can barely recall ever seeing TFs do high kicks in-fiction.
It's 'Nuff not nuff'. It's supposed to be 'nough, as in, enough. And it's not enough said. If anyone thinks this is a deluxe they have never seen a deluxe in their confused lives. Deluxes aren't the size of Alts, have die-cast or rubber tires or are fucking MPs because that's what this is.
I know it's an unpainted sample, but it looks... cheap. Just like your average deluxe car.
boy i WISH deluxes were like that
*looks at airachnid* T__T
While I agree that 'Swipe is more than a deluxe, I don't see either rubber tires OR die cast parts and I was hoping for both. (Rubber wheels, die cast feet.)
As a side not Takara a fucked if they do and fucked if they don't.
Come on ppl, this is a prototype, compare that first pic to this:
A bit of detailing goes a long way. Can't make out the tires very well tho....they still look plastic lol
i'd say this is a lot more solid looking than an alt in every way! maybe similar in size but that' s where the similarities end! have a good look at alternators and then the pics of this again..
I agree, Alts are kibbly messes IMHO. This looks great in that regard.
But even with the added detailing, it still looks kinda bland IMHO, which incidentally mimic the G1 'toon very well, again IMHO.
Still, color me very surprised if this gets released with any diecast or rubber wheels because I'm not seeing it on any of the promo shots, detailed or not.
Didn't Ratchet hit a seeker with a flying kick once?
Does that count?
Looks great for me, it would be perfect if it had rubber tires (that's really something missing for a MP, in my opinion) and a seat for the Spike figure that comes with Convoy 2.0.
I like the new direction of the MP line, though, they seems in scale with each other (not counting seekers) and it's like the "perfect G1 collection".
