    You would not BELIEVE what I came across today! Hasbro's MP-22 Masterpiece Bisk! For a mere £14.99 (on sale from £23.99!) at TRU (UK) he was in my sweaty little hands and back home.

    [​IMG]

    Following on from MP Tradition MP Bisk is packed in Alt mode. And he really looks the part, but he could have more paint apps. They're functional but he's missing apps on his front grill and spoiler. Another complaint is his plastic almost looks too plastic? I know it's made of plastic, but in a line called 'Masterpiece' I don't want it looking like a toy, a bit like Takara's MP Wheeljack did. But aside from those minor quibbles he's gold. Well, orange.

    [​IMG]

    Transforming this guy is absurdly easy, you simply pop the car halves apart like so...

    [​IMG]

    And then rotate the car side 360 degrees...

    [​IMG]

    So you're left with something like this.

    [​IMG]

    Stand him up...

    [​IMG]

    Clip the two sides together like so...

    [​IMG]

    And there you have it! Masters Of the Universe Claw-ful! Wait, wrong line... Masterpiece Bisk!

    [​IMG]

    Now I gotta say, his robot mode doesn't quite look like the Masterpiece in the box. It's close and I suppose 'contents may vary' here but he doesn't even have his blasters!

    His articulation is very limited, especially for a Masterpiece, only his elbows bend. I would have preferred something more so I could make him express more. Maybe a head turn?

    His conversion is a pure joy, when you rotate the halves of him his legs and feet and unfold with a nifty automorph type of transformation, and I'm guessing that's where the Masterpiece budget went. Seriously, once you see it you'll be hooked! The engineering on this guy is unreal.

    There weren't any instructions or paperwork, indeed the only instructions I could find were on the box itself, (and they're wrong as well they say you only have to rotate it 180 degrees?). In fact, it realistically only takes 3 steps to convert! Pop open, rotate, close up. It's like I'm Hyperchanging it.

    Wait a minute...

    TLDR

    If you don't like this you have no soul. Contender for toy of the year.

    What an awesome transformation, the MP designers sure are stepping up their game.

    This is the best MP I've seen in a long time. Affordable too. Strange how no third party thought of it, it's so obvious. 10/10 Toy of the year.

    I'm impressed by the transformation, it's very clever. The people doing RID Warriors is doing a great job with these later waves.

    (It's not the Warrior, the 'review' is actually of the 3 Step Hyperchange).

    The lack of seeing the 3 step changer box (the thread title) and wanting to see the warrior so bad I wasn't aware.
    Well damn. It appears they mastered making those derpy instachangers fun in its own way... Bravo...

    10/10, best toy of the year. I think this Masterpiece figure has truly convinced me to get involved in the MP line.
    In all seriousness, I'll wait for the Warrior Class figure (if I can even find it at retail...). It looks better, has better articulation, etc.

    Haha, amusing "review" there

    By 3 step changer standards, this thing truly looks like a masterpiece though. It looks really cool
    And you May have just convinced me to buy it should I see it

    Still really looking forward to the warrior version more though
