    Previously yes, but this has been mostly to align older releases with the recent toon stylings. Going forward I'd expect plus versions of newer figures to be other (non toon) decos...much like MP-36+ was.

    Yeah I just though the "+" meant "cartoon" as the initial releases of the aforementioned characters where based on the toy aesthetic... anyway... not sure (other than the armature on the shoulder) how this could be more toonified?...

    I’m late to the party. Gonna keep my expectations very, very low to be safe. At least the price on this is much easier to swallow than Prime 3.0. Hit my 12,000 yen or so price target

    It won't be. If they ever do a Hound + it would be toy styled like MP-36 +.

    Can anyone confirm that Amazon gifts cars (received over the holidays) cannot be used on Amazon.JP? I can't seem to get them to register at checkout. Darn.

    So this guy seems to have better QC than other recent TT releases? I haven’t seen any complaints with the paint or build quality, so that sounds pretty good to me.

    This is correct. Amazon JP has their own gift cards.

    MP-45 and 46 were made in Vietnam. Hound is made in China and from what I’ve seen the MPs built there have better paint quality.

    I’m still thinking that when Takara runs out of toon + repaints to do they may switch over and start doing toy + repaints of the newer figures like Sunstreaker and Hound.

    I’m hoping this happens so the people that don’t like the toon aesthetic will get what they want and just maybe we will see less complaining in the toon threads. I love the toon aesthetic but I may be interested in toy versions with more realistic alt modes for alt mode display in my collection. I like both!

    I'm in the same boat. I'm still stuck on Shipping Now and avoiding the recent videos so I don't spoil my experience too much. But I can't make myself skip all the great pics which are popping up!

    Do you mean that the Vietnam factories need more experience with painting? Or is there another reason?

    MP-45 seemed to have some paint issues but MP-46 seems to have really good paint and both were made in Vietnam. So maybe the Vietnam paint process has improved? I have no idea but I hope so.

    The nice thing about a larger Spike is that it’s going to be easier to put a face on this one. I hate the featureless face deco.

    Mine has been motionless for 6 months...lol. It’s just confusing given that people who ordered in the past day are getting shipping notices for him. Maybe it’s because this is my first AJ order? I wouldn’t think that would make a difference, but who knows. I’m just hopeful I haven’t done something wrong somehow.
