    Don't own this mold yet but I doubt I ever will. I would be horrified to buy it and have a broken knee out of the box. Kind of like when I got MP-01 and both smokestacks were broke in the box.

    The bio for MP-10B stated that that particular Black Convoy was created by Unicron (although why he had a Decepticon symbol and not a Minion of Unicron symbol wasn't addressed). I wonder if this is supposed to be the same guy. There are like 10 different Black Convoys depending on the continuity, lol.

    I'm probably not alone in thinking the axe should be red. :/

    The main order page is up on Amazon JP, the link posted earlier went to a placeholder (not sure if it goes to the main page now or not). I went ahead and pre-ordered, came to ~$215 USD shipped. Hopefully the Amazon price will drop a little in the next week or so so it comes in under $200 shipped. I can live with this price, especially since I'll probably pay it off before July 2020.

    Edit: Link, just in case - https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B08254ZHD3/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=mp-49&qid=1575485042&sr=8-1

    I hear you there. The knee issues make me unsure all around. I'll definitely be waiting awhile, especially since I'm looking at selling off all my other MP's real soon...

    At least for this version there can't be a debate if the ginormouos backpack is "cartoon accurate".

    never happen. Porsche refuses to let their license be used. They’ve tried. Believe me they’d loved to and know people want one but that’s the problem. The company that owns that car will not do it

    I mean you may not like it, but at least it looks more intimidating than round edged nemesis over here with a non threatening aqua axe. :p

    I don\'t collect MP to begin with, but am I crazy for thinking that MP-10 looks way better than this mold?

    Nah, everyone has their own tastes. MP10 does have a more aggressive look to him with the sharp edges, so that helps to.

    Like the saying goes...

    ..black really is slimming.

    I'll take the backpack over MP10s hideous gorilla arms and godawful legs any day but you do you, son.

    Yes you are. We all are. Only crazy people spend money on this shit.

    But MP-44 > MP 10/ TE/PE/SE/magic rectangle whatever. Not even a contest. It is a fact.

    MAN, that looks really good!

    The blue on the axe and blast effect is a really interesting touch, although I do prefer Red on the axe...
    If only I had the space and money to get it lol

    £210 on AJP. Comparing that to current MP prices, and Fanstoys prices, that's not bad, and it'll likely drop lower.
