They are just determined to make me buy a hundred Optimus Primes, aren't they?
That used to annoy the hell out of me too. Someone would be like, "Pre-order up," and I'd get all mad 'cuz it wasn't a real pre-order. I eventually got over it, though, because I realized it benefitted me. Sure I'd rather see a real pre-order with the actual price but these "placeholder" pre-orders mean that I can throw a dollar at ShowZ and no longer have to worry about whether I'll be able to find it later and, if I decide it's too expensive when the real price is revealed, I can just cancel it and put that dollar toward something else.
Oh and I was just messing around with the you annoy me too thing - just the way you worded it sounded like you were calling me out personally so I decided to play. I should've used blue text, though.
fair lmao i’m getting used to it at this point
no hard feelings I didn’t mean to word it that way at all
I am doing the same now. Current MPs don't really suit my needs and I have a feeling my MP collection reached its peak with MP-44. I don't have the need for anything else now... So going back all over again with Legends is quite cool and makes me think of what I want all over again.
I guess it makes sense. And I hope they upscale this because it would make people really happy and would kind of teach TT a lesson. MP-44 is great mold, but can be improved. They have clearly screwed people with the knee issue and never communicated about it. They released MP-49 and made it worse with no paint. They need to reissue MP-44 but make it perfect.
I agree. Show Z has that weird habit of putting up preorders up with no real info like they don't really know anything about what they will sell... Kind of a weird move.
What is with people and this listing? Am I the only one who thinks it's quite clearly for a re-release of MS-01, NOT a new MP Optimus mold? Go look at the listing! Read the description!
[Pre-Order] Magic Square MS-01X+ Light of Freedom Optimus Prime Metallic Version
They might make some minor tweaks to the figure and paint, but it's still listed as MS-01X Light of Freedom. I really doubt they'd give a different figure the same name. I'm not sure why people are insisting that this is sacrosanct proof of a brand new MP Optimus 2.0 design.
Nobody is saying it's proof. You could be right. It's probably more that I hope it's a v2 but I also just think it'd make more sense for them to do it and I'm hoping that's what they think too.
Maybe they add on a few minor details to the MP like the legends upgrade kit, a little blue crotch piece, etc with metallic paint
You give me some of those real world truck surface details, i'd be happy with that.
this is magic square we are talking about, to me who doesn't have a good track record of making sense with their actions.
how they spread their cassettes to make it hard/difficult to get them with the need to buy multiple soundwave/blasters, terrible CJ remold from BB, a separate purchase UM armour for very old release of v1 white prime, which ppl would have already bought long time ago or try to source very late, while also announcing a v2 prime. i could go on…
I really enjoy most of their figures, but they do seem to make some weird business decisions. One thing NA generally does better.
But their toys are some much fun normally that I tend to overlook it.
Weird? It's called business. You give them 2usd and they can earn money from loans. Ok, of course it won't work exactly like this, but they harvest money to perform some other type of investment. Plus they have some sort of lock-in behaviour from who has already paid that few bucks.
Plus, they can estimate or establish the amount of people that are willing to pay lots and more for a figure, hence able to increase the price accordingly.
So, in short, real or fake po, nobody should never po anything, unless the price is already fixed (in this case you know what are you paying for... playing rulette).
does this guy come with swappable hands?
not sure yet but based on Megatron and Prime 1.0 most likely
Yes, there are pics of the standard relaxed/pistol hand, closed fist and hinged spread fingers/open hand.
You're right, but it always shock me that people are making a business out of that hobby. I mean, we need these of course, but in my point of view, this is about toys and about people having fun. I know it's stupid, I am just too kind. I would never be able to run a business because of that.
i think there was a picture with swappable hands somewhere though! I must be confusing though as I can't find it anymore...
I wish tehy make one in mp scale too....It would probably be the best O.P.
I hope with a V2 Optimus Prime comes a V2 Megatron
What's wrong with the Megatron?
Dunno, he's beautiful to me
