As do I. I plan on trying to recreate the bumper(s) with MPs.
Asked in another thread on paint matches, but no luck. Anyone have any idea on a paint match for the white on the legs?
The MP-44 repair thread gives several paint mixtures. Not sure if anyone has tried to match the white though. From what I remember, the white parts have held up, for the most part. It's also a hard mixture to match.
Thanks. I'll look for that thread. I had a little ding in mine that I've been meaning to fix for ages
Guys I think my ratchet just broke for the hip. It's loose.
Yikes. Only one way to be sure. Exploratory surgery.
Yeah there's no way I can afford another mp-44 again. Are there instructions to open this guy up on tfw2005 ?
The MP-44 fix thread is what you're looking for:
Minor/Repaint: - MP-44 General Fix Thread
And that’s why I have a part donor KO MP44 on hand. Originally bought to replace a missing piece that held his left butt flap on from the inside.
Has anybody tried painting the windshield wipers silver? I’m contemplating doing this on mine but would prefer to see what it’ll look like before going for it. This being a $10,000 toy and all
Haven't done an MP44 gallery in a long time.
I always thought Hasbro would issue one of their own. smh
Toys'R'Us was the store that carried the G1 MPs. With them being reduced to a section in Macy's (in the U.S.), I don't think we'll see anymore Hasbro releases. Also, the price of MPs has gone up dramatically. I got Hasbro MP-10 at TRU for $100. That's the price of a carbot now.
Not how MPs work anymore. There’s one version of each figure that’s available globally.
Got my replacement mp44 replacement (Lost my mp36 for a one to one trade ).
Any Tips for the figures hips ? Cause I am still a bit sacred that i wont be able to pose the figure around because of the hips just exploding. I hope that hip issue was a problem only my copy suffered. So every mp-44 wobbles right ? I am so glad that I got an replacement I love this fig and love to play with it even more.
Had a blast reviewing Takara Tomy MP44 Optimus Prime! Come check it out! Next week I take a closer look at Hot Toys Iron Man Mark46 reissue with the updated base!
Everytime this thread is bumped, my heart leaps at the thought a reissue hss been announced
Sorry about that
I too, am hoping for a reissue of this gorgeous gem!
This is a classic figure. Expensive as hell, though. I have MPM-12 in my office at work. I'll keep him until ROTB Masterpiece Optimus is released.
Not sure if this is the best place to ask but was wondering if anybody's added silver paint to MP-44's windshield wipers. I'm considering doing this on mine but would love to see what it looks like beforehand in case anybody's already done so.
