    Not bad but not good either. If TT included an extra OG toy head, RM toy head, and RM chest plate, I'd probably bite. Like this though is an easy pass.

    That's a good compromise. That probably would have made me cave. As is I just can't despite my obsession with this mold. I don't hate it or won't judge anyone for liking it. Just feels like kind of a let down. Like a missed opportunity.

    And official confirmation that he's 38+ too, for the numbers wonks amongst us.

    This makes me really want a Flash Lio even more, to see how clear/opaque plastic would be used for the MP.

    My immediate thoughts on the pics were to picture every version of the RID Prowl mold where the door joints collapsed, and realizing that it wasn't even a pinned joint like most of these on this toy. So few of these will survive their first transformation.

    While I won't be getting one, I do like the colorscheme. It's weird and goofy enough that it works.

    My only gripe is the head. I think a black head like in this picture would have been more fitting. The blue contrasts with the red in kind of an unappealing way to me.

    Not my thing at all. I never liked the original Burning Convoy either, though. I’m just not into this colour scheme. THAT being said, happy for those who are amped for this guy.

    But hell... My ideal redeco is turning MP32 into some sortof white Yeti character that doesn’t actually exist... so what do I know?

    I've also dreamed of this. Like an ultra magnus equivalent color scheme. Idk if it's ever been done.

    Now if it looked like this, it would be getting pre ordered immediately...unfortunately, it’s a ghastly eyesore so that money is being saved!

    Well...it is what it is and we all expected it to look like this (I mean come on people MP decos have been slavishly toon for while now) but I'm still a little shocked at how plain it looks. The could have at least thrown some more gold/orange detailing in there, and made his head darker(pretty sure it is in the toon), even the swords are one simple colour and it appears to come with less accessories than any MP Primal thus far! No imagination or consideration seems to have been put into making this desirable to anyone outside of the most diehard MP/Burning Convoy fans which is a real shame as I want BW MPs to keep getting made...I doubt this will sell well at all.

    Also why the heck are Hasbro putting this out? US distribution? I just don't understand the business sense in this at all.
