    Takara really loves Nightbird, don't they?

    Seems kinda crazy but I love it! Comes with her sais and swords and everything

    Is that even an unmasked face she comes with?

    Wonder how much remoulding she has. New chest, new head, new pelvis

    Her legs look the same as Arcee’s and well they didn’t give her the accurate shoulders, but those are possibly new biceps and forearms

    Almost wonder if this remould was always planned? That long neck REALLY suits Nightbird’s design

    Oh man, I might be in! She’ll be so great to have just to stir shit up between Starscream and Megatron. Hope my shelves are strong enough to withstand all that sexual tension!

    I've been out of the MP game for a while, but I will definitely be in on this one.
    Nightbird was pretty tall in the cartoon, so this may make a good addition to the CHUG display. The older Takara Nightbird is pretty short, so we'll see.

    Surprised they're doing this as an MP but so far haven't done a corresponding one from ER Arcee.

    Is this the first time a Masterpiece G1 character has existed that is based on a Generations (in this case TakaraTomy's Legends) figure rather than an original G1 toy or reissue? As it's not like we have ever got some of the other things like say a Masterpiece Barricade from the Datsun mold.

    I guess because there isn't a lot to reuse Arcee for and nothing to make Nightbird from either.

    They just did one in Selects using the Power of the Backpack...er...Primes mold, so maybe they're giving it a rest since the new Arcee mold was already used for Elita-1 and the Medic.

    In that case I'm surprise we aren't getting Paradron Medic before this.

    Wouldn't Arcee technically be the 1st? Since we never did have an official G1 toy of her.

    Then why are they doing this before a black Diaclone Ironhide?

    I don't want/need a MP night bird but I am intrigued.

    Well it’s based on a cartoon character first and foremost

    Barricade never appeared in the cartoon nor in the original Diaclone line, as cool a repaint as he is

    So it wasn't just me, I was thinking about the Legends figure when I saw this, the accessories especially.

    Anyways, @Topic: Is the Arcee mold any good? I didn't like it as Arcee, but as Nightbird? I could go for a robot ninja chick.

    Eh, I pretty much would stick to third party for MP Nightbird imo. If I wanted her in my collection, which I don't.

    kind of an unexpected surprise but it's cool that it's based on the Takara Legends remould of the T30's deluxe I suppose
