    Yeah Shockwave is a fantastic MP. I had both him an Megatron in gun mode for awhile and transformed them both back yesterday. I thought I'd take a few pics to share my love of him. I also took this pic. I was going for a Cyclops pose where he's unloading his optic blast straight up. And thought it was funny that Shockwave is a cyclops:D

    Not sure if anybody already asked this but, Does anybody know for sure if there are any improvements on the MP-36 Reissue compared to the first release?

    I just got him in yesterday and wasn't really liking him that much but kept transforming him back and forth and then displayed him in alt mode next to megatron he has really grown on me big time. One of my favorite transformations.

    @Noobimus Prime. I believe that Charles has mentioned that in the vid as it was over two years ago since I last seen it.

    I was playing it at low volume so I may have missed it. I'll have to watch again

    Hurray! I finally got an MP-1 Optimus after years of only having MP-2. It's just the DVD Edition but it satisfies the itch. Now I just need MP-4, MP-4S, MP-1B, 20th Anniversary, and MP-1 Lucky Draw. Yeah, I don't think I'm ever going to even see the Lucky Draw figure but a guy can dream.[​IMG]Movie 20th Anniversary Masterpiece Optimus Prime. by DesertDog76, on Flickr

    I like the nod to the masterpiece mold that started it all.

    I love all eight of my MP-10's but there's something about this chunky monkey that I can't turn away from. I'm happy to finally have this mould in Prime colours and I can't wait to get the rest of the variants.

    I just transformed him and I'm shocked to notice that the tires actually say 'Formula Desert Dog' like G1 Prime and they have pattern accurate treads!

    I'm literally over the moon right now, my day has been made.

    I don't know if this has been discussed yet or not, but was MPM 04, aka Masterpiece Movie Optimus Prime, not supposed to be released until November 1st?

    The reason that I ask this, is because about a week ago, I visited a Toys R Us in my area, scanned the figure at a price scanner and the price came up at $99.99. However, when I went to go and pay for Optimus, the cashier scanned it and immediately took it to the storage room, saying that the release date on him wasn't supposed to be until November 1st and she didn't know why they put them out so far ahead of time. I eventually went out and bought one this afternoon at another store, but the point of this is that I'm curious to know what the release date was supposed to be.

    We won't know until January when he starts coming out. Nothing has been rumoured so far anyway.

    Hey guys, when MP-9 v2 came out did TT explicitly state that they had fixed certain things? Or was it rumoured at some point? Or was it only when he started arriving in people's laps that all of that came out?

    He's supposed to be out. It's a glitch in TRU's system. Had they actually looked into it they would've found that out.
