Yeah...the bar has been raised quite a bit over the last year or two....this just doesn't make the cut in my opinion.

it'll be interesting to see where these go and at what price they hit at.

and how compact they fold up…if they can fit inside the mp-13 energon cubes that's a win.

This is why you don't release images of unfinished products. Because that looks like a dogs dick.

I'm with Vangelus with this one too. I'll be keeping an eye out for these. The price point might be a problem though. Hopefully they can keep the costs down by releasing them in a all in one weapons pack and not just individually.
I'm enamored with transforming toys. If you know of some (the more obscure the better) tell me about it!

the whole point of MP is that it's supposed to be super detailed with limited, more tasteful gimmicks.

These look to be about on par with the Prid voyager weapons. Wow.

Part of the reason why I think these would be better for classics instead of MP.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

Not really into blocky energon weapons. If it transform rather it be humanoid like a targetmaster or at least like the Arms Micron weapons, changes into robot or beast.
