    I hate that I'm saying this but...MP-47 looks way better than MP-44 and MP-45. A true G1 toon masterpiece. Cannot wait for AJP to put pre-orders up and get this guy on my shelf. That alt mode SINGS.

    I don't know which meme cracks me up more, this one or the Mirage/CJ one.

    Gears, that one guy from that one episode. Since TT loves doing those types of accessories, Gears should be made to give Megatron something to do and Bumblebee something to flip over.

    Consider Windcharger was the only Autobot to not have any speaking lines in the MTMTE pilot episodes, I can see where you’re coming from.

    Oh this is nice, very nice. The soft top is a great surprise that's for sure.

    Sooo looks like we have Fiat Chrysler to thank for that ugly neck bolt. I bet the only way they’d sign off on the design was if the alt mode hood was one piece and unbroken. So dumb. Almost a perfect MP if only that wouldn’t have happened.

    I specifically remember Windcharger speaking a few times. Nothing remarkable but he definitely had lines in the toon.

    This checks all the boxes for me for my personal tastes, and since I don't have a Hound, the price point doesn't bother me as much (maybe b/c I'm "new" to collecting and everything is priced up for me?).
    Willis would cost me $200+ so I'm excited to have this one. Hopefully I can get it off Amzn Jpn

    I was pretty sure I'd get Takara's over FansToys' Willis, but this latest batch of pics seals it!

    Windcharger was barely there, but like others have said he had his tractor beam moment in Ultimate Doom, fought with Brawn and Skyfire in Fire on the Mountain, saved the day in A Prime Problem, and held the team’s fake combiner mode together in Masquerade. Also, Movie death! Haha I’ve got myself warmed up to Windcharger with this post!

    But right now - HOUND! Whatta way to end the year

    Wow, this dude looks great. The fact that he isn't Red, White, Yellow, or blue also helps a ton. If only Bee turned out this nice...

    I might have to get two now.

    Fixed my post. Thought I typed in the pilot episodes. He was the only transformer that didn’t have any speaking lines in the first three episodes. Even the generic seekers had more lines.

    Vehicle mode looks flawless, of course, but the real test will be how it looks next to the other MP cars.

    They've got to save something for the show:) .As long as he doesn't look like you can hook up Prime's trailer to him, I'll be satisfied.

    That's genuinely impressive, Love the way the shoulders form the engine in the engine bay.
