    I pulled my MP5 out and wow and turns out it has the rust; I haven't even touched it in a 2 or more years but there it is (does it take a while to show up or something?). With that said taking another look at the thing it really does hold poorly compared to the MPs of today. As someone said earlier MP1 can still hold up but MP5 does look quite poor and even Grimlock who scales poorly with other mps (but scales really nicely with current day leaders) looks better. That said I do still like how they changed the colors and I'd still love to pick this thing up one day but it's still a pretty poor MP (still not sure if worse than MP3 or not though). His arms do still look nice though and I don't feel like the face looks too bad.

    I almost vomited when I saw the final paint and finish. This is such a terrible looking novelty figure. The original MP-5 is good enough for me. I can't wait for Takara to do a new version of MP Megs though that matches up to MP-10. This is an easy pass.

    anyone know of any legit Asian China websites that have the MP re-issues.
    MP-05 is the only MP I don't have and after seeing this goldy I want it. Even though Im sure and Hope a MP-05 v2 isn't too far away

    Gold Megatron? Takara is scraping the bottom of the barrel for Megatron iterations. Hope this is a sign of a new mold MP Megatron. If they do, personally I would like it to be the G1 style still and include the stock. And make the stock transform into his throne.

    Sad part is they're not. They ignored perfectly good ideas like Megaplex or black Megs with brown handle.

    That's ambitions, but a good idea.

    Plus, at the new scale, it would actually fit in your hands.

    I wish I fed on hyperbole, this thread would feed me eternally. I don't care about all the negative, nonhelpful, unoriginal vomit/turd based "criticisms". Genuine, non-hyperbolic criticism about technical flaws, not subjective appearance based comments, counts for more. And none of the real issues with this figure dissuade me.

    I love the color, it reminds me of Buzzsaws original gold. And I hate gold usually, if he were all gaudy shiny I might have canceled. His proportions and screen accuracy don't bother me either, I'm longlegged myself, and Mp-01 doesn't look as much like cartoon Prime as some people like to think either. Prime is far easier than Megatron to do well, obviously. He just has more bulk to work with. Considering how completely made up Megs bot model is, getting a screen accurate figure out of a P-38 is an engineering nightmare. I'm amazed he turned out as well as he did, he's a massive improvement on the original. I'm getting him, and the regular one sooner or later, and I'll be thrilled to have them both on my shelf. He'll go with the other weirdos, G2 Swipe, Yoth Prime, Eva Prime, Ghost Scream, Etc.

    I'm glad I look at my MPs as idealized versions of the toys I love that happen to heavily homage the comics and cartoons that I loved to a lesser degree. The fact that these toys don't and never will look exactly like their character models doesn't faze me at all. I enjoy the down the middle approach. And why people actually believe they're going to get a realistic car, plane, gun, or tape deck model to turn into a exact representation of a cel drawn figure I'll never figure out.

    But seriously, it's a toy gun robot, everyone calm down, before I vomit a polished turd that looks like a sows ear turned into a purse.

    Yeah would be surprised if this wasn't a last shot like 01 was. Looking forward to the v2 and curious on who is leading it.

    Wait wasn't the original painted over gray plastic?

    The reissue has the potential to be a worse mess than the 08xs that just came out assuming they are using the same plastic as his face... Gold over gray...

    A TF:TM retreat from Autobot City battle damage deco would have balanced out Dead Prime, and been SO much cooler than the gold.

    Yup. I would've taken that, or even a clear purple "conversion/reformatting" type.

    .....Interesting. It kind of reminds me of the 'Golden Lagoon' episode.

    Well, if I could afford it, I could probably use it as a prop when I reenact 1985's Clue. :lol  Of course I'd probably be asked to show an officer a permit to carry should I take it out of the house in gun mode. :lol
