    I think MP-10 still looks better than the new MP they're making. New guy looks a bit like a stick figure.

    I think the MS toys Prime looks the best, he looks like an mp-10 with different legs and tweaked proportions.

    The official mp looks like he went much too far with dieting.

    i love the new one. me, this thread, over a year ago

    i'll take it one step further. MP10 is the worst looking MP Prime.

    The unlicensed Masterpiece Optimus Prime looks awful. Way too chunky in all the wrong ways.

    With most of the Bayverse toys, I don't think inaccuracy automatically makes it a bad figure. Like an example, the existence of ROTF Leader class Optimus doesn't make the original 2007 Movie Leader class Optimus an awful toy just because it's "less accurate".

    I think he means the 3rd party Optimus Primal. Spell check most likely changed it on him. Just did on me, lol.

    I don't like SS Thundercracker. His head reminds me of a jumping spider.

    I'm not a huge fan of the MP line. I really liked the show characters and their designs but for some reason the MP stuff just looks boring. Like they got the shape right but left out the personality (or something, it's hard to explain). I still have a couple MP though but I have no desire to collect the whole line.

    I feel this, specifically to do with SS Voyager Starscream. Not as accurate as other representations of the character, but at the end of the day I'm just here for the transforming alien robots.

    I still feel that the 2007 Bumblebee (2007 Concept Camaro) is the best Bee deluxe, at least as a toy. I like how the roof kibble ends up on the forearms so that there isn't a panel backpack, even if it makes the arms look less accurate.

    I want a MPM of that seeker.


    Anyway, there's definitely a Studio Series version coming.

    For me this applies to any TF really, not just bayverse. Accuracy is a good bonus but I'm willing to overlook that if it makes for a fun toy.

    Lot of POTP Legends hate here; if you're sensitive, run now.


    Beachcomber has fugly proportions as a robot and a buggy.

    Windcharger is a great figure ruined by an intentionally atrocious headsculpt.

    Battletrap (as well as his component figures) is compromised in all five modes due to the decision of making each vehicle also a separate robot.

    Cindersaur is a tremendously hideous repaint, and Outback a tremendously boring one.






    ...Slash and Tailgate are great though.

    Tailgate and Windcharger both desperately need thigh swivels, though.
