    I am seriously torn between MS and TE. Screw TT with that pricing.

    I think TE looks much better in nearly every. MS version is way to barrel chested. Looks like if he looked down all he would see is the top of his chest. And the truck mode looks poorly done and even looks like it has gaps between panels.

    Buuuuut. The head sculpt on the TE one is terrible and the hip flaps look awful too. The Transformation looks tedious on top of that so I don't know what I will end up doing. I do love the battle damage on the MS one.

    I thought the head sculpt was gash too till I saw Ben's review. Looks absolutely fine now.

    Easy answer.....you buy BOTH! :ev:  Then you'll have both in hand to see which one you really like and sell the other. Or just keep both.

    Maybe some other third party will Frankenstein these guys so we get the best of TE and MS in one package. Probably not though.

    Tough choice:

    MP-10: I still love it, it doesn't match the cartoons exactly, but it matches how I see him. Still one of my favourite figures to date.
    MS: Good price, I like the finish and the aesthetics. Proportions don't look quite as good as TE. Transformation feels crude, and having the back and side skirts like that is less than optimal (pun intended :p  )
    TE: Looks spot-on and good price, it's amazing how well the transformation cleans up. Articulation appears to be more limited, though.
    MP-44: Looks like the strongest candidate, but $$$. But all those panel lines make me feel like this might end up over-complicated like MP-36.

    I still love MP 10 and am in no rush to get rid of it. I might hold out for the eventual KO MP-44.

    And I like how 9/10 of the posts you gents have in here, are full of BS regarding 3ps and TTs superiority. If you dont like it in here, you can go back to your 'elite club'. I never seen such a circlejerk, people believing that they belong to an elite club because they are shelling above average amounts of money for toys :lol :lol :lol 

    Chillax broski, again you guys over at the official section still havent learnt how statistics work apparently. If you want to read things as they are even with the schooltrip you guys organised, TTs offerings even if we bundle them together are still a little bit taken aback.

    I'm the 1st one praised the designer of TE and continued to keep others updated news regarding the product.






    I also organized weijing evasion prime group buy to help fellow members to get the figure early. What have you contributed?




    But thanks for taking the time to imagine my preferences.
