    The pic is distorted by the cardboard display being bent. You can see a line across the head. I'm sure the face will be spot on once the actual figure is showcased.

    It would have to be made of lead to stand even a chance of balancing that lot out lol.

    Having mixed thoughts on this one. That said, it definitely looks mistransformed—the chest piece looks like it should slide up a bit to cover the shoulder gappage and make the torso look more streamlined. Looking forward to more pics.

    I would have preferred Kup too. I mean, I'll only buy a Paradron Medic redeco anyway if they make Arcee. But regardless, there's so many third party Arcee's already Kup or Scourge would have been more interesting.
    It still is great to see season three get MP love.

    Anyone remember that 80's cartoon called Transformers? You know, the one that had good guys called autobots and bad guys called deceptions? Be nice if the Masterpiece collection had a few more of the latter... why oh why is Galvatron not coming? If movie figures are being done, surely you need him out front?

    I'm not so sure the chest mis-transformed. You can see where the pink meets the white lines up with the side piece. If there chest were higher that wouldn't line up.

    We keep being told this but we've already had a fair few 'bad guy' big hitters. They don't come much bigger than Galvatron. I'm sure he'd sell well enough.

    Have to say.... not a big fan.

    Alt mode is surprisingly perfect and I'm not even irritated by the backpack. Thighs and legs are very "seductive" (you'll get the joke if you know about MP36's design notes), the face from what I'm seeing is excellent (sleek and defined), and the posability looks out of this world.

    But oh my god, something is wrong with her chest. Actually, contrary to what some are saying, there aren't poking bits - it's just shadows and it's really just a cartoon accurate flat panel. They HAVE to have mistranformed it because I can't imagine Takara f***** up the placement of her chest that badly.

    at least tigatorn is not just an oversized cheetor with new heads, if you look , specially at the tiger limbs, he is chunkier, and broader overall, the legs have more separation btween them compared to cheetor

    A few, yes, but look at how overwhelmingly Good Guy the MPs are. You got the most popular of S1, BW Megatron, the two Predacon turncoats (so you can argue if they represent Predacon or Maximals), and a bunch of repaints. Look at the leader cast: 3 G1 Primes, Primal, anime Primal, Burning Primal, Lio Convoy, Rodimus, and Star Saber. Compared to 2 G1 Megatron and BW Megatron. They love their good guys. I'm sure Galvatron is on the way, or will be replaced by an equally imposing villain (Overlord?)

    Thankfully, there are numerous pieces of art that show the white lines not matching up.

    How the hell is it possible that we have MP Arcee before Kup, Galvatron, etc. Is this just Tamara realizing which would have the most sales and repaint potential?
