The head does look darker, which is good.
The mix of solid, metallic, and clear reds seem to keep it from looking too dull. It\'s funny how some things are so iconic they get full toys or dedicated accessories even though they only happened the one time.
This is something that stuck out to me too. I agree about the eyes. Seems like a large oversight in my opinion. If the eyes lit up blue it would be fine but I assume they’re red. They could have even removed the electronics completely and just painted the eyes blue. Lio Convoy’s yellow eyes are a lovely reflective color. Too bad about the red eyes on this release.
if Takara are going to commit fully to a toon aesthetic I wish they went all in. No holds barred. Like Prowl+ having black on the inner elbows. Just small things like that bother me.
I'm liking it
Im deciding whether or not to pick this up, I have no Primals , and I'm guessing like Smokescreen + there aren't going to be too many of these
In robot mode, it looks like Optimus wearing red gorrilla pajamas. LOL
fuck what i wouldn't give for a pair of red gorilla pajamas
I really hope a 3P, toon-accurate head comes out, in either blue or grey.
Ugh I feel like I should get this for the inevitable release of flash lio convoy, but I cant compel myself to get this as a stand alone piece.
I wonder if there will be actual shortages or just a long delay (shipping and/or manufacturing) due to Covid19 ?
They darkened the head. Nice. If (probably more like when) they do Flash Lio Convoy, I\'ll have to strongly consider this. I think it looks nice. I\'m so weak.
darker head but red eyes... what are they thinking?
why are the robot eyes red ugh
I mean honestly it would explain a lot. The boss monkey started saying some pretty out there stuff during beast machines.
Where are all the paint apps? The MP presence? This thing is as bland as a cheap ko.
More images from MP-38+ with MP-32 and MP-38
I'm enjoying this images way more than I should.
Got mine today, courtesy of The Chosen Prime. First thing to note, he looks better in-hand than he does in photos. The figure has a really good presence, which I wasn’t really expecting.
It’s worth noting this one was made in Vietnam. The quality isn’t horrible or anything, but the tolerances feel really off. Some parts are surprisingly loose—though nothing is floppy. This could also be chalked up to the fact this is bare translucent plastic, while the other releases were painted. Only part I think you should be mindful of is that backpack transformation. Otherwise, it doesn’t feel too fragile.
My biggest gripe with this figure is the head. I really wish we got a resculpted head with blue eyes, or AT LEAST blue LEDs. Talking to my buddy Primal Sabbath earlier, it seems like HasTak has an aversion to doing blue LEDs... They’ll yellow, green, red, but never blue...
I also wish there was more flame detail on the arms, but I’m fine with it as-is.
Anyway, I’m happy with my purchase, but with the way the global economy is, I don’t see this guy going anywhere but clearance come winter time.
Man I really need to ship my stuff out from them as well. Glad to hear it looks better in hand though granted even in photos I'm liking him.
It is kind of a shame they didn't do blue eyes.
