    So we all know MPM-12 has extraordinarily shit hands.
    But luck has graced me because I remembered that JuJiang OS Classics Prime comes with an extra pair of SuperArticulatedFingers.
    And I tried it out, and these SuperArticulatedFingers work on MPM-12!
    Sure his hands are black now.

    But now it has 6 gaping holes. :/
    Which is why I painted the ones on mine.

    I sure do love when "simple" gets the job done.

    Picked up MPM 12 over the weekend, can't believe how much I love it! ...anyway, the bare cream-gray-whiteish plastic on the underside of the feet, and the back of the cab was kinda cheap looking. On the other hand, the dry brushing that Takara used on the sides of the truck mode was perfect; although they didn't match one bit.

    Solution: Tamiya Gun Metal and a dry brush, and just go over those two aforementioned parts.

    Everything matches nicely, and the truck now has a cohesive rugged look on all parts.

    Here is what Takara already painted up, looking great:

    Just followed suit and put some on the feet:

    And the back plate part:

    Looking good:

    ....Just waiting for the Go Better upgrade to arrive and this MPM might be my favorite so far.

    Basically that's all that needed and that's all really Hasbro need to add to this besides more silver paint in places (since he's supposed to have more silver on him on his shoulders I think

    So for those of you who painted his eyes....what's the preferred method? Did you just use a tiny brush and get in there?
    ...or did you disassemble it?

    Pull a Bayverse Prime and take his face. It's much easier than you think, and make sure you have the right size screw.

    Just disassemble it, The eyes are a seperate piece so you can use any method to paint over them.

    Toyworld people in factory:  Our version is better, colorization just right, agree? My MPM 12 HAD PINS FALLING OUT for some reason.

    That explains it, and he seems fairly annoying. He gets around, apparently.

    There’s something really satisfying about having these two side by side.

    I’m so glad that I ended up liking MPM12 so much. Easily one of my favorite movie figures now.
