    Even though, that KO doesn't seem bad.

    I'll gladly support the official one, now that it seems they've been improving the line with these two, even if Megatron still could have some issues, i really want to see how far they get in engeenering and amount of characters. :thumb :thumbs2: 

    However, i'm really excited to get Jazz, i have him in pre-order right now, and i wouldn't cancel the order even if a random KO from BMB or WeiJiang appeared in less of a cybersecond.

    MPM-8 is far from a "home run" as you put it. I have it sitting in front of me right now and it is quite flawed. Biggest flaws are the half assed, spotty, random paint and the crumbling hip ratchets. I'd go on to point out that the knees and head fall off if someone sneezes in the next room, all the rubber parts are super soft and warped to hell and the translucent red chest was a poor choice and has no place on the figure. My most disappointing purchase of the year.

    All I wanted was MPM Starscream. Instead, hasbro and takara stalls us with all these pointless characters that ends up being a disappointment and a waste of the designers time.

    and all I wanted was to be back in charge. Besides, who would you be without me, Prime?

    So what are the differences, besides the silver chest?
    I couldn't obviously couldn't understand the points they were making.

    I honestly consider MPM08 to be one of the best figures this year, and I'd definitely say that he is a home run for the MPM line

    In regards to the Mpm figures, when do their Takara counterparts release?

    Jazz and Megs?

    Thanks man.
    I might hold off for the Takara version like I did with Ironhide. (And Optimus)
    I know the whole "from the same factory" argument is usually brought up, but then again, my Ironhide is in pretty decent shape.
    (As was my Takara Mpm Optimus)

    Oh yes. Finally got ahold of MPM Megatron. It took a while, but I finally managed to take a pic of BA Prime and MPM Megs in my dream pose.

    Personally I just go with whoever has the best price to quality ratio.

    For megs I'm going ko, while I ended up buying the official optimus and barricade cause they were fairly cheap when I bought them. In my eyes, who cares if its official or not, go with what looks/feels better to you!
