Perhaps that's a fair assessment if you didn't start collecting MPs until 2017 and are oblivious to the toys that came before that. However, Reboost fits in perfectly with other Hasui-style MPs like Prowl, Wheeljack, MP-10 OP, Lambor, Tracks, etc. Considering it's a Diaclone homage of a toy that never had a character in the cartoon, what would be the point of making a cartoon-styled MP figure of him? I think it's ok if toon-MP collectors pass on this one, but not all of them will. And those who appreciated the earlier hybrid design will snatch him up with enthusiasm. The original goal of the MP line wasn't cartoon accuracy, after all. It was meant to be an ultimate depiction of the character if it were real-- not limited to the toy engineering capabilities OR animation quality of 1984.
