    So with packaging and product already made, does this mean it is still set for beginning of April release?

    In case it hasn't already been posted, someone uploaded a rotated version of the video that is easier to watch

    Nice one, Taziir instead of bitching like some ungrateful people in this thread who should be thanking someone for taking his time out of his life to give us this wonderful video you've gone and found a good copy with awesome music as well, might I add, well done, dude.

    Or for anyone watching on iPad, just lock the orientation while you watch it and hold the iPad vertically

    Thanks for posting that video as it confirms a few things for me. First, MP Megatron is a tad 'off' in his proportion...like 'chibi-fied' somehow. Not sure if I'm impressed. Second, the spacing between the upper portion of the legs and the 'diaper crotch' is no better than Apollyon. Third, the head appears to be out of scale with the body. It's just too large. Fourth, the gun barrel is finally in the proper position. Yay for that.

    So bottom line, I'm still just not that impressed with MP-36 and I'm not sure he does anything more than my $75 Apollyon.

    And because of all of that, I just preordered one through Amazon JP. I'm not sure why but regardless, I just can't resist this release.

    I hate all of you.

    Urrrghhh this figure is so infuriatingly close to perfect! However for me the proportions are just slightly off it almost every conceivable way, the 'diaper' and head are too big, the thighs and mid-arms too skinny, the torso too short, the legs too long. In each case it's marginal and may look better in hand but I'm still not sure he'll be replacing my Despotron. I've never been so conflicted about a figure previous to getting it. Thanks for sharing @MachineHeart88

    First off, thanks for posting the video! The figure looks great in hand.
    Whatever the case, it would be nice to have better focus on the objects during the close ups. The sideways thing could be annoying for those who can't easily turn their monitors but the one advantage is it gives us the full available pixels for the images for the clearest look possible.
    Thanks again and I'm looking forward to getting mine.

    Why does the damaged head have a laughing expression?

    I'm guessing to somewhat represent this scene?

    Thanks. They should've made the facial expression a snarl. Like when Megatron defiantly declined Unicron's offer. The snarl expression would've been appropriate for Megatron pointing the small pistol at Optimus Prime as well.

    Just when I thought I couldn't be any more excited for MP-36.... this video drops. Is it just me or does it seem that with every iteration we see the quality just looks better and better? The proportions, the seams, the paint, the metal (or magnet?) behind the swappable faces, it all seems so premium.

    I have to confess, one of my very very few gripes with the MP line has been the varying degrees of quality in each figure. An MP-08, MP-10 or MP-13 just doesn't feel like the same as an MP-29 or an MP-34. It is what it is. I'll never stop buying them, but its just something I've noticed.

    That doesn't seem to be the case at all with MP-36. This is a more costly figure, but everything I've seen screams quality - especially after seeing this video. I know MP-10 is the benchmark for most collectors (and rightly so in a lot of cases) but I think once this guy is in hand people are going to be using MP-36 as the yard stick for all future MPs.

    I can't wait.

    I think every problem stems from the crotch. If it wasn't so long, and instead the rest of the torso matched it, or if the torso was longer, it would basically fix any problems he has including the head. Of course, that doesn't matter because that's not going to happen.

    I'm really looking forward to this figure, it looks pretty dang solid. I just hope isn't to hard to remove the plugs that BBTS has to put on it when I get it. Never plan on taking it out of the house so the plugs are just going to be an eye sore.
