Unless you consider that MP-40 is Firebolt and Hot Rod was just an accessory. Then it fits.
Then Ratbat (with Soundblaster accessory) should've been MP-20 not MP-13B
I go with 28 being Hot Rod prior to his ascension to Prime, and 40 being a 'different' Hot Rod who's been changed by assuming that role. Plus, he's now a Targetmaster type dude to boot.
TL;DR, whilst still the same overall character, I see the two as distinct parts of his arc.
This still works for Soundblaster, because Soundwave died. His same body was reborn though. Or something that makes this work...
Actually, in the West, it works better because Soundblaster is just a black Soundwave toy. No Twincast from Blaster etc in G1 toon. Of course TT would acknowledge that, right? Ahem...
Dang, I forgot about 15/16E. All new characters (even a new mold), reused number. All rules are broken
Mine was at 28,789 but when I checked this morning it had dropped slightly, I don't have any points to apply:
Still above TFS-Express though
Reused number because they weren't a mainline release. Rule still stands!
I mean we can come up with whatever head canon we want but ultimately it's still weird
Don't understand. It's never dropped below ¥21,361 including Japanese tax, right? That's the current price, and I haven't seen it move at all. Just added to cart and I get
The only thing I can guess is that it has dropped to 21,145 at some point and nobody noticed it.
Yeah, still higher than TFS-Express...
Oh, and the cancellation text is still there, and I assume it's Sunday in Japan now? That must mean we have until 23:59 their time on Sunday to cancel.
Whew thank you, I can calm down now!
Hmm, I think MP-11 is quite messy looking. Outside having a thinner profile, I can’t see why one would prefer the aesthetics of MP-11 over MP-52. Now Maketoys Meteor vs MP-52 I could see some things people might prefer with Meteor.
IDK, I really don’t think MP-11 was really a great representation of Starscream. It was just decent stand in material until something more accurate came along.
I got mine from ae despite the trouble I had getting a refund for hound, and covid, and Brexit and fluctuating currency markets because I have BALLS OF STEEL/am stupid.
This thing really needs to have the designation of MP52 Second in command and future leader of the decepticons.
I love how MP11 looked but then I saw MT seekers and realised how ugly MP11 was, but MP52 looks like they got MT seekers and made them look 10 times better somehow
You are absolutely right! English is not my first language.
Indeed, in fact before MP-52 was a thing I was hoping to see some 3rd party company take those New Age figures and oversized for MP scale.
I doubt FT will beat MP52, they're not as hyper toon as TT
I still wouldn't mind an oversized version of the Newage seekers.
Firstly, they could do full sized wings with the flaps like a proper jet.
Also at that scale they could thin out the rear wings and also make covers for the inner calves to hide the wings inside them properly !!
Easily doable with today's tech. Also they could add ab-crunch like Meteor and you'd have an awesome looking seeker mold.
The only real issue with this guy is his thighs, while looking great front on, are ridiculously thin from almost every other angle !!
Congrats guys, for those of us who ordered with AmJp, we’re locked in - no cancellations. Nothing to do but wait 6 months and hope for our currency to stay strong and maybe the global delivery situation reverts back to normal. On the positive side AmJp will cover any QC issues if they arise. Also, last day to order from places like AE and HasbroPulse and others.
Well that's surprised me! At what time in Japan did they lock that in? It certainly wasn't midnight into Sunday morning. I thought once that time passed it was inevitably going to be last thing tonight Japanese time. That's really quite strange...
Can't wait for this Starscream V3!
You have another 6-10 years of waiting then. This is V2.
I was under a similar impression.
Apparently MP 11 was a retool (version 1.5).
