    I'm the king of keeping stuff sealed but I don't keep any MPs misb. Not unless I buy an extra one to hang on to. Actually, as of right now, my MPM4 is misb but that's because I wanna sell it to pay for the superior KO version.

    I've had MPM-04 for a while now, and while I'm mostly happy with him, the hood issue does kind of bug me. I'm not the type to do extensive modification, so is there a fairly simple way to fix it, like cutting down some tabs or something, or would it require more extensive disassembling and general customization for it to work?

    If you don’t tab the back toolboxes into the shin panels it helps a bit, but a small mod i did on mine that helped was shaving down the top of the side windows.

    I have a copy that tabs in but the was still quite a bit of tension and shaving the top of the side window tabs helped a lot.

    I saw this in my instagram feed and it has possible listings for the bumblebee movie and studio series and mpm 06 and 7 are in the listing and either mpm6 is a typo for another number or its the takara version and not the hasbro version

    I just got MPM Optimus, used from fellow TFW member Retroheavy. This is a fantastic figure. The paint apps are brilliant, even though there are a few glaring spots missing, and the flames and striping really pop.

    I will probably keep him in robot mode, and remove some of the truck parts, like the grill/bumper parts and half the rear fenders. I'd love to get one of those Mr. Bucket weapons upgrade sets for him, anybody have those?

    EDIT- forgot to add, since I won't be transforming him, I want to get 4 wheels from a movie Leader OP and cut them up to install on the outside of this one's wheels, so they are more screen accurate.

    Hey, does anyone know where to get a Takara MPM-4? IIRC, it's the one with the nice (shiny) silver paint. It's really the only MPM that I definitely want from Takara; it's the most noticeable of differences between versions. Been searching eBay and can't tell if the sellers know which version it is, BBTS has no idea about MPMs at all (and doesn't sell any MPM to begin with), and TFSource is out of stock for the Takara MPM-4.

    Might post some pics of my lovely Hasbro MPM-3. I just need a good photo shoot setup.
