    I figure since this is such a controversial item, we might as well have a dedicated video review thread for it so all the information is in one place. If you guys find any other reviews, post 'em here. I'll be doing the same.

    Sorry, that's not how this section works. While I see the logic, I do not want to start having to manage one way of indexing certain video reviews, and a different way to index the rest. It has to be all one way, or all the other way, and I feel our current system - while not perfect - works well enough.

    I have as they say "Tossed my hat into the ring" of TF reviewing, by not doing a review! It's more of an unboxing video that starts with the master shipping case for MP-10. It's my first video (and I was flying blind due to the unboxing), so please excuse any shitting editing, rambling, incoherent thoughts, mouth breathing, Sean Long hands, etc...

    Constructive criticism welcome, just don't be to harsh.

    Since the other thread got locked because I tried doing something a little different and I now have the second part of my MP-10 review up, another thread!

    EDIT: Here's the rereview with my better lighting:




    Here's the second part, the new video that covers the trailer:





    Here's the first part, as was seen in the last thread:




    EDIT: Is it just me, or is video embedding not working?

    EDIT 2: Nevermind, restarted Firefox.

    Hey everybody, this past Thursday I received the newest edition to the Masterpiece line, MP-10 Convoy. I had forgotten that I pre-ordered this toy, and when I got the payment request I felt instant regret. Especially since the yen is so painfully good against our dollar right now.

    But you know what? Once I got this toy in hand, I found out that I really did love it! While I still regretted paying that much for a new toy, while playing with it and transforming it, the price was easy to forget, and I could appreciate what a good Transformer this Convoy is!

    Mumps looks at: MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy - YouTube

    This is my first "look at". I call it a "Look at" because really, the only things you will see on my channel are toys and games that I like, and that I want to show you all.

    It is not the best review on the market right now, but I was excited for this toy and wanted to share it. I hope you enjoy :D

    I've heard from several people that apparently the fingers fall off very easily and that the ankles are really really loose. That information really has me on the fence about even getting this guy...

    The ankles are looser than I would like them, but I can't say they are a problem. While posing him once I kept having him crumple from the ankles, but then I just noticed that gravity was working against the ankle joint, so I twisted the foot, just a bit so the swivel was not in the direction of gravity and it was fixed! and it didn't look awkward either.

    As you can see, I am pretty rough with my toys (Thanks for that OMEGAPRIME1983 ;) ) and the fingers on mine haven't fallen off at all. I will look at that a bit more closely when I get home.

    I appreciate it. My biggest problem, while i like how he looks...certain things bug me. Mostly the price for this guy..seeing how he's smaller than the original MP Optimus and is a HUGE reduction in terms of quality (die cast vs. plastic), i don't think 250 bucks is something i can honestly warrant for this figure. While you seemed to forget the price as you played with him...for me, i'd be constantly reminded of how much it cost

    You will love him, once Hasbro releases it. :) 

    While the diecast on MP-01 is gorgeous, and heavy, the plastic used on MP-10 is of a really good quality. He will feel REALLY light in your hands, because everybody has held an MP-01 or one of it's repaints/re-releases.

    The problem i can see is that everyone will compare this new figure to the old one. That's both good and bad. While it's not fair (to some degree), when you look at the price of the original and seeing what we got for it, then compare it to what we're getting this time around for around the same price...i'm sure a lot of people will be put off buying this and forking over hard earned money for it.
