    Title says it all :D 

    Rules of the Safe Place Thread™:
    • No using the word 'boobs' please kthnx
    • If you don't have anything nice to say, I made a poll for you so you can vote "No" and consider your voice heard ;) 
    • Don't sexualise the toy please. It's a toy, dammit. Just don't be weird ok?

    I'll update this post with new pics as and when they come. If someone wants to add screenshots from the show I'll add them to this post too (for weapons/pose references etc).

    Not to sound like a jerk but do we need individual “Appreciation” threads for MP figures when we have an MP Appreciate thread plus there will be separate review threads we also have news threads.

    I've already poed this bad girl.
    Fanstoys and mmc versions are a no go for me.
    They don't look like Arcee enough for me.

    And for her low chest. It's an ez fix.
    Just make the upper part go at an angle more upwards.
    Then it will sit higher.
    At least if there is nothing bumping it when you go to car mode.
    Hope some fans will make a new chest or something to fix the problem.

    Not buying 2 because of qc lately.
    Although my Hound is still perfect and no breakages yet.
    My mp-44 haven't chipped any paints yet. But he has floppy legs.
    My mp-45 Bumblebee is as it is with very floppy legs. This guy needs to much fixes. Hope ko will do that.
    And all these figures if there is a ko, i'll buy that too.
    So the original don't have to transform any more.
    Less chances of breaking or anything.
    I can go all out with the ko.
    That is the purpuse of a ko for me.
    Or a ko ks a stand in for some time till a good new molds is out.
    Still waiting for that 3rd party Wheeljack and the nissan bros.

    Forgot one thing.
    This mp-51 Arcee will introduce us to new articulations.
    Not only ab crunch but her whole ab section can rotate. Or is it going to the sides?

    Blackarachnia does also. Prime has the side to side but I think it's more pronounced with those two.

    The MP Appreciation thread is more for photos than discussion. The news thread is for posting a variety of opinions.

    This thread is more for discussing the nitty-gritty details, possible repaints, transformation theories etc. Like with these ones:

    MP-45 Bumblebee V2 Positive Discussion Thread

    *Unsubs the other one. Subs this one*

    I’m still confused why the collar is so long. It honestly looks like the torso-armor can lift up into the armpits for a completely different look. So many different points would be better if only the torso could slide up a tad. Specifically there would be more white on the belly and the collar would be shorter.

    Anyways. This figure does look amazing. And I’m positive in hand it’s going to be nothing short of lovely. I’m glad she comes with so many weapons and effects. She’s going to be a real badass on my shelf. Pink DOOM for the retreating Decepticons!

    Maybe she’s got her own MP-09 shrunken and grown form.

    Yeah, I'll be getting this despite the low chest. I'm sure there will be a way to "fix" it or a 3rd party will make a replacement kit or something to that degree. Overall though, she looks like a solid figure.

    I’m most likely getting two. Hopefully the Amazon JP discount will be in effect. Should we expect listings to go up this week?

    I wonder how possible it will be. Since the actual chest might be pinned inside and even so it looks to be a deepish assembly.

    Instant buy!

    And I mean it!

    As much as I understand the anxiety after the Hound snafu (mine is still undamaged since December 2019), I'll judge her until I get her personally.

    I own some MPs that majority call turds ( Tracks mold was too ambitious and TT forgot the neck locking and the atrocious nape/shoulder gaps). Not defending that.

    MP5. Okay. 'nuff said!

    MP36(that barrel that folds behind is a pain to transform and the paint chipping). etc etc.

    Issues that i am not falling on my sword to defend. Can't deny that but I ain't losing sleep over them. It's a hobby after all but I don't let my hobby eat 99% of my life. It's like maybe 20%.

    So if the Southern Hobby Supply list is correct, we won't be getting a stand with her release . I'm interpreting this as; the Takara designers thinking "this figure can stand perfectly without one." From the looks of the poses seen so far, she's on MP44's level of posability.
