    My copies shipped, but my excitement has dropped off dramatically with the scale differences in spike, it's just too much. Any pics of this guy next to sunstreaker?

    Amazon JP uses DHL which has the fastest international shipping. I usually get items in 1-2 days which is insane for the cheap shipping for items.

    I'd love to see a picture of Hound's Spike next to MP-45 if possible.

    I think in some of the in hand shots the ankles aren’t compressed enough or something. In the official photos his feet look shorter from the same angles.

    I received my text from DHL. Estimated delivery is by end of day Friday which is fantastic.

    Heh.. I already think this is version is overpriced, for 2,000 yen more the deco would have to be pretty knock out to convince me. If a plus version looked good enough I might stretch to paying he current asking price.

    If it wasn't I did mention it earlier.

    Actually this new Spike scales better cartoon wise. These guys were not that large next to the human characters. Especially Bumblebee. And if you stand this new spike next to the other cars itll look much better. So I welcome it.

    Any actually in scale with an MP car human figure was always gonna be huge compared to the horrible out of scale tiny previous MP humans. Making a Hound has kinda forced them to acknowledge that. :)  Personally I hope this brings about a scale reboot of MP humans that don't suck, but I'm not being too hopeful - I feel if they were gonna do that they would have done so with MP-44, so this'll probably be a one off proper scale human and we'll be back to underscaled things that are easier to leave a cubby hole inside an alt mode for them to ride in.

    Couple of suggestions of a + version?... How much more toon acurate could this be?

    I'd be talking about a plus version along the lines of MP-36+, so more toy than toon. This is too toon for me.

    In the toon he never had a giant swing arm attached to his head. Maybe TT should get rid of that.

    I totally agree. The whole implement the rocket launcher into the transformation is a bad decision IMHO. Not ans bad as Tracks with his tiny missile launchers but that hinge and the fact that the missile is long and skinnier than it should PLUS the missile being non removable. But...oh well lol.

    so the + releases thus far in Wheeljack, Silverstreak, Smokescreen, Prowl, Sideswipe and Red... nothing has changed for the transformation and design itself... just the colours? Blue windows, matt colouration, (head sculpt on Smokescreen?) less / removal of decals. I was under the impression the "+" stood for a more toon accurate aesthetic? or is that wrong?

    Yeah I though the "+" meant "toon" as that's where the majority of the + versions have gone right? For a more cartoon aesthetic...

    ...anyone with spike in-hand willing to throw him up against the masterpiece cassettes in a few shots?..i really like the way the larger human figure scales, but some variation's actually a good thing to represent the vastly different vehicle and media scales across the line...

    ...now that the base figures focus upon animation models by default, these days plus-versions indicate toy-based deco-schemes, and i welcome them...i still prefer when masterpiece figures re-interpreted a real-world hybrid of what the toys and media together aspired to represent, but i'll take what i can get...

    The + version could be looked at as an "opposite" of the non + version.
