    The subtle red fur paint on his chest and knuckles looks great!
    Pretty sure some people missed those XD

    Now one thing i will say to the BW2 collectors...

    ...if they release the rest of the squad, this one may be expensive/ hard to find, right along with MP38, whos color scheme seems to bode well with Leo Op being more cartoony looking...

    ...not to mention if they release the gold Leo...

    ...better get it cheap.  We all know how Prime prices can get outta hand after market.  Also, this Prime actually appears on screen.  Not for me, but, i can see how this would look good in a BW2 setup.

    He reminds me of a toffee apple..

    If the echo chamber of this thread is an accurate sample of the general consensus, this is unfortunately going to fail as miserably as Roadrage did.

    I hope it doesn't impact on the MP series bottom line or potential adventurous repaints.
    A Flash Lio around the same time would have been a smarter roll out..
    I think this thing is hideous but put into context with other BWII characters it would make more sense as the poster above says

    I really need my MP36 Transparent reformat purple so fingers crossed.

    It looks really neat! I register the usual fears about translucent plastic, and eventual cracking, but it's pretty cool.

    Though the gold mouth in the silver plate.. That's.. odd.

    Well, part of the issue here is that most of the BW fans on these boards only have a connection with the US version of Beast Wars, which did not feature this version of the character. At least that's my personal reason for having no interest. Any other BW MP's I will buy the shit out of.

    Instead of a blue head with gold lipstick, I feel like we should have gotten a head that matched the colors of the figure. Not buying either way mp not normally my thing anyways

    I already bought and sold MP-38 and decided not to collect MP Beast Wars, but now I’m considering picking up this guy and the eventual Flash Lio Convoy and calling my new MP Beast Wars collection finished with just those two.

    Thx, was looking for this info, but.....Gah! Amazon Japan would have put me over the edge with the discount pricing and awesome shipping.

    But I dunno, if it was solid like some fan renderings I'd be more inclined, but that clear red, ugh, that's looks terrible. And I love BWII

    What's difficult is trying to ascertain the general mood and buying interests of the fanbase at large while separating out the general whininess of vocal sections of the fanbase that may just be a loud minority.

    If MP sales slow enough that Takara is compelled to reconsider how they're running the line, I'll be curious if their market research tells them that people are tired of toon accuracy or character selection, or that aesthetic selections be damned people are just tired of paying higher prices than we were a few years ago.

    Theatricality and deception, powerful agents to the uninitiated. But we are initiated, aren't we Takara?
