    I’m a bit surprised nobody has mention that MP52 is virtually kibble free. Who else has a more toon accurate back? Hound? The Fuso Bros? MP52 is amount the best.

    Some would argue MP52 back is too thick. Fuso is so perfect you want to display its back.

    It's because this one is specifically an F-15C, and the C-version has asymmetrical ones. The previous molds are hybrid/fantasy versions, not exactly following the details of any particular type. The original toy is most likely based on the F-15J, which has symmetrical fin-tips, and I believe every F-15 seeker since has been that way as well---which is perfectly valid, as the F-15J/DJ/I/K/S etc all are symmetrical. Asymmetry is a USA-specific thing, when it comes to F-15's.

    This. It hasn't aged well at all. My rainmakers are mp11 and it seems fitting they're the older model so they'll probs stay. Coneheads? Not sure, depends where I am as a collector when they get released. Skywarp and Thundercracker are 100% going to be the mp52 mould.

    tbh the coneheads have fire headsculpt tho so if in case you ahve all 3 conehead than it's not necessary to have new conehead mold , just focus on 3 main seekers

    They kinda suit the bulky mp11 look too tbf. I always saw them as brutes/muscle. That said, can you imagine how amazing they'd look in the mp52 mould, ab crunch, butterfly shoulders, solid balance......

    You've posted F-15 facts several times and I enjoy reading them. It's nice to have someone on the forum with this knowledge. It makes me appreciate the figures more too. Thank you and keep it coming. :) 

    I wonder if Boeing wanted MP-52 to resemble a F-15C or if it was the choice of TT? I guess we'll never know. The original toy was then likely based on a F-15J, but when it was rebranded into a Transformer for an American cartoon, it makes sense that they therefore made MP-52 to resemble a F-15C. At least, that's my reasoning behind it. :D

    Tangential but that old warhawk like the A10 Thunderbolt can run circles with the latest F-22! No wonder the USAF and Navy(?) scrapped plans to ditched the F-15. It's like at version E or something. Cream and the rest of the knuckleheads will feel at home even in 2022 beyond.:cool: :bowdown: 


    Ooo no! Here comes the itch to scratch as in try completing the MP-11 Coneheads.......:cry

    We need new coneheads with actual paint jobs and not the bulky mess the mp11 mold was. Their biggest flaw was they're based on an inadequate mold which I could see turning people off as well as just taking up too much space.

    Come on MAN?! Soundwave?! With nary a sigh of Blaster yet?:( 

    Wheelie would make a good MP punching bag like Creamer...not that I dislike SW, cool nerd and all but Blaster really needs to grace the MP scene. Him and Jazz.

    And I noticed the blue fonts too. :drunk

    We’ve never had a MP triple changer before. Who would you choose first?

    Yeah not to get off topic but now that they are getting Skids out of the way, they could go ahead and do Trailbreaker, Jazz, Mirage or even Cliffjumper next

    So what are the rumours? I'm guessing Soundwave v2 is the biggest.

    One of my knee pads likes to split when I move into place.

    Buuuut, if we get Soundwaaaave, we might get Blaster wiiiiith iiiiiiit!!!

    One could hope, right. Plus, last time FT announced "Acoustic Wave", HasTak announced Soundwave 1.0. Maybe lighting will strike twice....
