You like your figures when they feel cheap? Seriously, nothing seems to justify the price on that thing compared to all the other $200+ toys I have in my collection.
Coming soon: minitroptimus (ETA: Oct. 23).

Perhaps, but I'm glad they made this toy. He's a huge improvement over the original.

I agree. This release, to me, makes MP-01 the real waste. Unpopular opinion I know, but I really don't much care for that thing.

To me, putting more metal into a figure (in place of plastic obviously!) doesn't immediately define it as a quality piece. It's all how the diecast is used and in many cases, I have seen it almost ruin the posability of a figure. Maybe just have some in the feet but never should there be any above the waist IMO.

^^^^

Diecast doesn't equal quality to me either. Sure, it worked during the G1 days because most of them had zero articulation. Now, it usually (not all the time) just makes the figure top heavy and limits their movement.

Weight isn't a substitute for quality. Die-cast toys are typically made from cheap, weak metals which, unlike plastic, tend to break before they stress and deform. Then there's paint chipping and balance.

When was the last time you broke the metal parts on a Transformer of that price? Or any price? Broken plastic parts on Transformers though, very common. How many times have I read "the figure was broken right ouf of package"?
