    Man, I just... I know there are credible rumors pointing to a Convoy V3 but I just don't know how they're going to top MP-10.

    I'm sure as soon as I see it I'll be blown away, but every time I look at this guy and pick him up, I just can't see how it gets any better. It's the toy I couldn't have even imagined 34 years ago.

    So... as my B-day present this year, my amazing mother got me this beautiful figure:
    IMG_2979.JPG This boy is one that I've had my eyes on for a long time. (That sounds weird). Anyway, my birthday is on the Monday after Mother's Day, so she let me open my gift two days early. (After I let her open her gift early. What can I say, we're impatient.) Now, to some pictures!!! IMG_2980.JPG IMG_2982.JPG IMG_2983.JPG IMG_2984.JPG IMG_2985.JPG IMG_2986.JPG IMG_2987.JPG IMG_2988.JPG IMG_2989.JPG IMG_2990.JPG I'm starting to fear that I'm getting addicted to these things. Artfire is tones of fun, with a simple yet interesting transformation (that I completed sans instructions), and pretty nice poseability for such a (insert Jobbythehong meme) big boy. Target master is super fun, and the other gun is pretty neat as well. As my first Takara Tomy figure (the rest being Hasbro releases), it makes me ease up, as I was unsure of how to go about buying new MPs. Now, to set a goal of who to get, and start making the money!

    Thanks! And I am officially getting into this expensive addiction/habit/guilty pleasure. Now, time to make $220, lol. (Seriously, MP Megatron, G2 Sideswipe, and Artfire were my top 3 wants.)

    Nice one! I remember when you posted a thread asking for recommendations this was my suggestion to you, what a fun and good-looking Masterpiece.

    The arms are where I feel he needs most work, butterfly joints and a double joineted elbow to get us over 90 degrees.

    The wheels compressing into the legs or rotating to hide also to give a wheel free leg. Also a little increased range of movement.

    Basically I'd be happy with a more articulated MP10!!

    That's what I thought, but then I wasn't 100%, so I didn't want to say that and be wrong. Thanks!

    I honestly didn't know. Thanks for that helpful information! Only G2 Sideswipes I can find on Amazon are all KOs! $55 is a great deal, so thank you for that info!

    Appreciating @Nemesis Otaku s pics of Artfire made me decide to get the crew together!

    Hauler, Inferno, Artfire and Grapple!

    IMG_20180513_191716.jpg

    I know some will complain that Hauler should be green but this is him in MTMTE!

    Oh and others will complain about 3P but I wanted all 4 to be distinct ;)
