    I use MP-29+ with hands from MP-29 for what I consider the perfect Shockwave. I also painted the eye yellow as the light piping doesn't really stand out.

    Yes, but except you did not buy them. Idiot.

    But nevertheless, here we are.

    I had forgotten how AMAZING 29’s transformation is. Truly amazing. Intuitive and ingenious at the same time.

    The leg transformation is by far the MPest moment this amazing mold offers.

    But the best thing about it is the colors. Just hard to describe for those that don’t own it TBH. It feels like a premium version of the Vanilla version, as great as that one is. It is painted, and it is GORGEOUS.

    Also, tampoed insignias are IMO what makes an MP an Official MP. No buts about it. It DOES make a difference.

    This mold is one of my favorites. Solid, fun to transform, and incredible looking.

    It was a mistake not buying this on day one.

    I truly feel like I just got a new MP. A new mold, even. I’m that excited about finally owning it. God, I love it more than 52 if that makes any sense.

    I’ll never, ever, pass on a G1 TT EX ever again (not re colors though, this is the exception)

    I’m in love with this thing. Jaw dropping really.

    My only MP on display as of now.


    I truly can’t put this thing down. What a solid, beautiful toy this is. So fun to transform back and fort… no scratches, no stress marks, absolute perfection.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MP29+

    I feel like a kid on Christmas morning man. This is what the MP line is all about!

    After Thundercracker and Skywarp, there will only be Soundwave and Reflector left for "More Than Meets The Eye" absolute perfection.

    For the Decepticons. We still need a few more Autobots to make it totally perfect.

    Are the grey thighs painted? I only though the purple was full paint.

    You are correct. The purple is so beautiful it blinds you.

    Congrats, buddy, I remember you looking for this figure for ages. It really is a great figure, one of my favourites. The colour change from the original makes a world of difference....almost like a new toy and that fluid, elegant and enjoyable transformation, particularly in the legs is a joy to behold.

    Good pics.

    Now, if only some of your good luck can rub off on me so I can find an FT-44, Thomas for less than £210 I would be a happy bunny!

    Thanks partner, I appreciate your words. It’s been a literal journey to find this this figure and I’m glad I did.


    You still on the hunt for a Thomas then? Man, that blows. It is a very good figure, but the current rate is just a no go. Check showZ regularly as those dudes seem to get magic stock sometimes.
