    I got excited thinking it had shipped - but mine still shows "Arriving January 30 - February 1"

    Right, most of the robot mode is unpainted, all the painted parts are from vehicle modes

    One of the best MP face sculpts ever imo. It’s his giddy face for when he shows off his solar power tower model which is how I have him displayed on my shelf. Most of my Autobots have their smiling faces on because they’re a happy bunch of fellas.

    All my bots are smiling if possible. And I agree Grapple’s proud smiling face is top 3 in the entire line.

    That’s Grapple’s excited face. It’s one of the attention to detail additions this Takara MP team does so well. It’s what I find most appealing about the MP line,….and the engineering.

    Looking forward to getting Hoist, and an MP Warpath would be very nice!

    I think he looks great, but I'm definitely not into the lesser paint each release. Bring back the paint! The truck mode already looks a bit like classic G1 with that different coloured plastic at the top that usually ages differently than the painted parts over time.

    They dont paint anything inside the car to prevent chipping, anything on the outside or is visible in altmode tends to get painted. Actually started that with Skids
