    Seeing a tiny bit of how the alt mode is used is fine with me. "The back of the feet are slightly inaccurate" is not a dealbreaker for me, and using the front of the truck as the back with all the molded detail is a clever way to do that. It's straight from the SS.

    Oh man great question. I hope they have sufficient quantity this we don't have to worry about pre-orders being sold out.

    The one issue I have is the clear blue windows. Always distracts when masterpieces have that instead of a dark tint.

    Since my toy is in Bot mode most of the time, I really want to know why his shoulder armor is fixed. This problem is more important to me than his "truck ears"

    We get it, the truck mode sucks. You don’t have to be an ass about it.

    Anyways, The robot mode looks pretty good and the transformation seems fun. I’d get it on sale, but we don’t even know the damn price of this thing yet. It’ll probably be $150, so, just wait for a sale or buy the Ark instead. I’m already planning on getting the Ark anyways, so full price was always a pass on this for me. If a good sale comes up, I’ll get him.

    I actually like SS-38 prime more than this. If I get a masterpiece figure I want some level of complexity and accuracy. This doesn't have that.

    If I didn't know the size of this figure I'd guess it was a studio series release (and not even one of the best ones at that).

    I doubt a improved KO can even fix this figure. Back to waiting for a "good" 3P release.

    Looks good but I think I'm going to wait for a company to KO this and fix whatever issues the official has at a cheaper price.

    Yeah the transformation on Toyworld is the definition of "fuck off" but I feel like they cut too many corners and went far to simplistic on the MPM. Toyworld looks way better.
    They do both have the problem of the dead eyes and can barely hold their weapons tho.

    Guess it's just waiting to see if a KO could do this like Wei Jiang did MPM-04 Prime (unlikely) or if Transcraft actually make theirs.

    It looks to be exactly what I want. For me moving forward, MPM will be the live action go to for perfect balance of fun, value, and detail in a transforming figure. For ultra accurate robot modes I have ThreeZero DLX for my crown jewels. MPM will be to live action G1 what WFC was for cartoon/comic G1; getting that perfect balance.

    Aside from planning to get a few Generations/studio series , I feel the MPM line is a better source for capturing this new detailed G1 live action transformers, that may not be possible on a Generations' scale.
