    Help me out here. Is the front of the truck a little gappy where the top of the grill meets the windows, or is it reflection of the red on shiny chome playing tricks on the eyes.

    Prototypes tend to be gappy.

    I mentioned this in the other MP44 thread, so I might as well...:rolleyes: 

    If any of you guys do not care about the accessories of this awesome fig, here you have someone willing to give cash in exchange of the Starscream parts (this figure is way too expensive to buy just for the accessories:confused: ).

    Cheers!

    Curious that his obliques aren’t grey...and that slip of paper sticking up in front of his mouthplate. Hm.

    Are we positive his eyes won’t light up?

    Nah, that would be off-topic. Besides, let’s not bring this thread down. :( 


    Regarding Prime v3, seeing that latest prototype has me even more excited about him. He looks great molded in colored plastic, and will look even better with a nice paint job!

    Sooooo are we gonna get one of these threads for MP-45? Would love to be able to discuss it somewhat objectively at the very least.

    Since I'm getting two copies, I'd be up for this :thumb 
    Only problem is my second copy is coming via slow shipping, so you'd have to wait until possibly as late as November for me to ship out the Starscream parts.

    I made one, but it was combined into the MP Appreciation thread.
    If you want it, message the mods. I already have. The more requests they get, the more they might think about it. Maybe we could just get a thread for 'positive discussion about upcoming MPs', although there are some interesting enough posts in the MP-45 thread that it'd be a shame to lose, I think.
    In the meantime I've just been making liberal use of the ignore button :thumb

    Oh boy, I have had it with all the negativity of MP-44 and MP-45. You literally can't go anywhere without seeing at least 10 people going off about haw Takara sucks, or whatever nonsense they complain about. I find that this place is the only good thread to talk MPs anymore.
    I for one am happy with the knew MPs, and am glad to say that MP 28, 45, 29, and 11NR are going to be my first MP purchases!
    But I think at least for now I'll just hang out here for my MP talk.

    Indeed, it’s wearing on me too. Only reason I’m still in the BB thread is to see new pics. Speaking of which, I’m surprised nobody’s posted any more photos of Prime from wonderfest.
