Oh wow, the role-play gun @PoweredConvoy mentioned is real! I tried looking for it but couldn’t find any pictures. It's kind of amazing seeing these old toys for the first time, I never knew this existed.
But yes, that’s totally the gun Lio Convoy is wielding in the show, which this MP also holds! And the ones in his left hand are the guns and missiles from the mane. It appears they can be hand held via a ring of sorts. The ring has a handle, allowing the figure to hold it, and the gun barrels and missiles slide into holes in the ring. Which also tells us how the weapons will attach to the mane – via ports were they plug into.
So it’s likely the man’s guns will fit into the gaps and fill them out. My guess is there will be clips of some sort inside, but they can hide to not be seen on the opposite lion head.
Actually many people were sure he didn't have one or a rocker and saying things like "this is nothing but a glorified CHUG!!" turns out he has both! Glad to have it confirmed.
Its surprising we've not seen more of his accessories, he can't be far away from going up for pre-order. Where's Artemis for example?
Sigh this again.... Does it look great? No. Is it show accurate? Yes. Is this exactly what you'd expect from the MP Design team? Absolutely.
I really hope you're right....it's a bit optimistic to fully expect it though.
I mean I wasn’t really in the right for saying there would be a crunch for certain. But I was confident that there could be one and I wouldn’t be surprised if Takara made another MP with an ab crunch.
Heh, I overlooked the 'I' in your original post lol! I was just saying many didn't expect it. Great to see he does have one, even if I'm not super bothered either way personally.
Not only an ab crunch, but also a more refined ab crunch vs previous MPs that doesn't leave a gap at the back.
Now that is toy design.
Nice to see an MP with a clean back, well covered joints that don't break the sculpt went fully utilised and (mostly) minimal kibble. No back pack, no gaps where there should be 'connective tissue', if only this was something applied more consistently throughout the line. The ab crunch doesn't look too dissimilar to that of Dinobot actually. The ways his knee work looks good to, the knee caps are separate to both the upper and lower legs, no Primal style disconnecting knee caps.
My only real complaint is the size of the arm 'kibble', I know it's show accurate but they seem way too large and intrusive(yes I understand its difficulty to shrink them and still have them work in alt mode).. I really hope it can be removed or positioned better. We still haven't seen the 'Lion Claw' weapons deployed, they might look more acceptable in that configuration.
... I mean there’s screws there if you’re really bothered . Just unscrew it
Sure...I could do that...shouldn't have too though. MP-43 Megatron's tall armour removes by sliding off, no reason why these couldn't also...and indeed might. He didn't always have these hanging off his arms in the show and to be honest they never rarely looked that large.
Anyway ultimately the price is going make my decision on this one. Much more than 20,000 yen and I'm out....my prediction has always been 24,000 (a ludicrous 100% increase on the similarly sized Primal) rumour is it'll be just shy of 30,000. I just don't care enough about the character or the BWII show to play that.
Yeah the claw attack could look cool. Maybe better than the stock position.

No Artemis figure?
looks like no, my friend.
That’s very strange as it was said to come with it. Curious what’s going on.
I will ask to my insider friend, if he can get to know about it.
Thank you! Awesome
