    Because people can't comprehend two things being based on the same thing looking alike.

    Ah shit, I just realized that MPM Barricade might be the original design if we go by Bee and Prime.

    Damn. I'm hoping he's his TLK design, I prefer that immensely.

    On the subject of Barricade... will the MP be licensed..? Apparently they couldn't get Ford to play along with TLK Barricade, but what about the MP, regardless of the design? (I know the original was technically a Saleen, but I'm fairly certain they still needed Ford's OK.)

    Looks like they took the figure out of the box, stood it up on the display THEN ROUNDHOUSE KICKED THE FUCKER.

    Looking forward to correctly transformed pics.

    It's the 10th anniversary of the first movie. There's a very specific reason why they're using these designs in particular.

    It's a remold. Not a new one.

    I just transformed the RotF leader a few minutes ago, and it makes me want this MPM even more.
    While I like the leader, it looks like this may go above and beyond what that one ever was.
    Hyped, but a reserved hype in anticipation of good pics.

    Goddammit for the umpteenth time it has been stated that the mpm prime utilizes a completely new mold. Re-read the previous posts and you'll understand

    Its similar, but absolutely a new mold. There are too many changes that can't be done simply by remolding. Such as the hitch being on the back as opposed to sandwiched by the torso and legs.

    Ah, it's mistransformed. I was going to complain about the wheel-arch kibble hanging down like old-ladies' "bingo wings"and the lack of weapon storage in alt-mode, but I'll reserve judgement until I see unofficial/Takara pictures instead.

    This might replace my first film, chromed up leader class Prime (but I think that version seems to have better weapon storage than this version).

    If the legs are the same i'd love to understand your reason on why the headlights on the chest are the real ones from the truck mode. True it takes design elements from the rotf leader but that doesn't mean it's a remold
