WELL, Can't argue with that!
If anyone here thought that the MP line was for anyone else other than the Japanese market, it's time to think again.
That has never ever happened though. Once we see a proto on display, there have not historically been any changes.
Yikes, the lion arms hanging off the bot arms just looks bad.
well at least he's armed and dangerous
I'm glad I actually saw pictures of this before reading that it was MP-48. I would've been really disappointed if I was waiting to see the thing for a while and got my expectations up, because this isn't that great.
wow... I was agreeing with you and yet; u throw flame.
careful what u say here man, they're gonna attack u for saying that it looks ridiculous.
Cool to see so many people excited for this release, but I'm not one of them. Was never a Beast Wars fan, and know next to nothing about the Japanese series other than they exist. Is this guy Second or Neo? Glad to see TT hitting up different sources for their MPs, hope my favorites get their light of day soon. G1 folks, y'all have 3P to flesh out basically everything. Takara knows this, and is likely why they've mostly stuck to revamped versions of earlier characters, repaints, and Hound. I get brand loyalty, but Jazz ain't coming, get Downbeat. Cliffjumper ain't coming, get Toros (or whoever is the best one, idk). As for this figure, neat. Lion arms are a bit unsightly, accurate as they may be. Would've liked if they could at least fold up flush against the arm, rather than that protruding angle. Lack of fur detailing doesn't bother me, he looks right at home next to the similarly flat MP Primal repaint, and looks pretty anime. Can't wait to see who's next.
Thank you so much for this! Now I can rest easy knowing that he’s screen accurate and that it wasn’t a design compromise!
Ty Takara. My wallet is barely surving the onslaught between Dinobot, Megatron and Arachnid lady.
My god, this looks perfect. Whereas most people were Big Convoy back in the day, I was always a diehard Lio Convoy guy. This really came from left-field, But is very appreciated.
Shh, don't tell anymore @Actar, I love to see the flailing of impotent fan rage. I am more amazed by the fact that little light bulb hasn't came on faster for enough people.
Moving the MP line into the Japanese BW series can only mean one thing:
Possibly the of the weirdest Transformers with one of the most busted abilities of all time. Za Warudo!
Needless to say I would get one. I almost pulled the trigger on BWN Heinrad a few weeks ago, but he's just too big to display him alongside the other Neo figures.
Yet people complain about ROTF Devastator for his set, so much double standards smh my head
I want him, but I don’t want him. Based on this one beast mode image alone, the lion doesn’t look the way I wanted it to, probably because I have more attachment to the toy than the show. But who knows? I may still get him, if I can afford him.
I do like the robot mode though. Oddly satisfying anime proportions.
TT sure knows how to suck the life and fun out of this hobby if you're a Sunbow G1 only fan!
