    Think that this is a definite buy for me, really like the truck mode.

    Depends on price...anything more than £140 at the max and it’s a no.

    This turned out better than I expected! Cab mode is what it is, could've been better but not the worst. Looks pretty damn awesome! And no backpack in an official MP figure? Woah. Bot mode looks the best out of any MP BM Prime IMO, none are perfect but this is the most accurate (ILM files and what not). This made my day and I'm not staying for what's about to come, always something to complain about blah blah blah.

    I'm aware that the KOs make improvements, but I shouldn't have to buy a KO to fix problems on these things that are already expensive and honestly of pretty weak character designs for the most part anyway. Which is to say nothing of poor design choices such as Ironhide's shoulders or his feet in vehicle mode, and don't even get me started on the regular Masterpiece line, which honestly has no excuse to be bested by KOs (which doesn't always happen, but it has).

    Besides which, I think these figures suffer from the same thing that a lot of recent G1 Masterpieces have suffered, trying to shoehorn a very specific robot design into a very specific vehicle with little leeway, instead of being a bit more liberal with both modes and therefore ending up with an overall better-looking albeit a bit less accurate figure.

    But I forgot I'm in an official movie figure thread, so I should probably stop criticising it because the official fans and movie fans will come after me once again~

    Not that MPMs come out over here anyway. We barely even get mainline stuff, and when we do, it seems the scalpers all buy it up, because nothing says "asshole" like overcharging by twice the price for the already-small and already-overpriced amount of stock that a small country like New Zealand gets in the first place. This is just one of the many reasons KOs exist in the first place...

    There's no two ways about it, the truck mode lets the whole thing down. Looks nothing like the model from the movie, got devil horns at the back, shins, the clumsy way it doesn't fill in at the sides. 'Bot mode looks great and it's probably much more pleasantly-sized than the other BB Primes, so it's a real shame.

    Can anyone explain the Soundwave tape deck they were showing. I’m assuming it’s some type of preorder bonus?

    Speaking on behalf of the few furries who collect Transformers here:
    Much like Cats 2019, absolutely nobody asked for this.
