    As much as a like the early original G1 MP carbots---the Lambos, Datsuns, Wheeljack, I usually make it a habit to stay away from repaints but I had to have MP G2 Sideswipe. If the price ever came down low enough I could probably get Blue Bluestreak, mayyybee Clampdown and Exhaust. Again, the price would have to be low enough to make the deal sweet for me, especially for Clampdown & Exhaust. Reason being that those two are pretty obscure characters and Clampdown has the same problem as Red Alert when it comes to his gun fitting firmly in his hand with fist closed.

    Heads up to all who were hoping for a price decrease. There are 2 sellers with Clampdown marked down to $58 shipped on Egay now. So I bought one more... Lol. That's cheaper than most standard MP car robot releases. How do you say no?

    ^ We had a homerun too when a local Seller ordered too much stocks...

    USD $37 complete with his Collector Coin.

    Well I sure couldn't. I just ordered two of him.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Actually pretty happy to be filling out my diaclone repaints with some nice sale items (just ordered Road Rage a couple weeks back dirt cheap from NY).

    I like the deco, but not the original asking price...

    $58 is a good deal, only downside is it's from Asia so it'll take a while to come over.

    QFT.

    We could get Road Rage locally for USD $33. :D 

    In fact, for both TakaTom's & Hasbro Asia's offerings, we're blessed that we do not need to try so hard to at least find these pieces at reasonable pricing. (While Hasbro is simply trying to gouge us on their SRP)

    Are you sure those Clampdown's aren't KOs?

    ^ Not in my case.

    I know the Seller personally as a friend so he'll tell me if it is.

    Besides, the KOs are going for even lesser money from where I am. (Some of them are at USD $22)

    I suppose there's a risk of that, but it's actually a pretty large seller with lots of official items, so I'd be surprised.

    Wishing I didn't already spend $80 on MP Clampdown. I like him, but struggling with where he'll fit in my collection. Originally I was thinking of him as a Red Alert stand in, but he's not quite sufficient for that. Clamp Down is still in my TFS Stack. Maybe I can request a store credit refund?

    You should be able to cancel if it's in the stack.

    I love police car decos, especially on TFs. But having a 4th of the Lambo mold (already had 'swipe, Red Alert and G2 'swipe) is hard to justify for me.

    In case you're confused by my earlier statement, I wasn't referring to KOs of Clampdown specifically but rather, KOs of MPs such as Lambor, Tigertracks, Datsun brothers & etc in general.

    This put the idea of a masterpiece RID Clampdown in my head so bad.

    Imagine.

    Just got him in today. Stunned by how fast he got here, actually.

    I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I like him in-hand. His colour scheme is really great - the paint on his head and shoulder areas really makes a big difference.

    Also, after spending a lot of time with Shockwave and Ratchet recently, this mould reminded me how much better the early MPs are. Still love the new guys, but man, MP-10 - MP-21 are so damn good.

    Anyway, if you're on the fence, I really recommend picking him up. Especially if that deal on Ebay is still available.

    I wish they enlarged the tab on the rifle so that it fits on the right hand more securely. MP Red Alert's rifle and hand had this problem too.

    Seems like an issue with this mold in genral. My Clampdown's got it pretty bad so half the time I just make him hold the gun like a constable beatstick.

    I was shocked that they didn't fix it for Red Alert's 2nd production run. KFC's hands for MP12/14 helps.

    I hope it is fixed on the upcoming MP14+ Red Alert (toon colors).
