    Yeah, they need to do it studio-series style and design it with Jetfire in mind.

    I just bought the BA version of MPM Prime but I find it a bit too large. I would love for Takara to do a DOTM version with a larger price tag to match the newer releases in engineering. Not sure I would want the trailer. It would be cool to see and even better if we can get a jet pack out of it. But it would be very large in both modes and I’m running out of display space.

    Honestly, as much as I'd like to see what they could do with some later characters, I'd be content with them stopping after Brawl.

    Yeah, I usually don't advocate for redos of characters that already got a figure, but this is one case when I'd be in full support of one. There's a lot to like about MPM-04, but there's a lot more that was disappointing. Kind of wish they could find a way to meld him and the RotF leader. Like, I love the way they did the MPM's legs, but everything from the waist up the leader did better. I appreciate them trying to put the actual truck parts where they're supposed to go, but I think too much is sacrificed for that to happen. Cool that they tried to have his headlights end up on his torso, but the execution was terrible, and led to us getting an inaccurate ab section to compensate.

    I think BA's Prime is actually a perfect height to scale with the car bots, but I don't like that I'm terrified of transforming him. And his torso section was disappointing too, since it can't be pushed in more. The original prototype looked perfect, but then they screwed the pooch and made him look bloated.

    Yeah, they definitely did him an injustice, and I hope they eventually include him with one of the figures, but I kept my Human Alliance version so I can live without him.

    Not if it wont sell. This is when you realize how small the TF fan market really is. The mpm releases were priced so that a single mold use could be profitable.

    He and Ironhide I will 100% give a pass for if they chose to redo them.
    Agreed I'd be very down for this.

    Oh yeah! Looking good so far. Let's see how bot mode fairs. I already know this will be an insta buy for me.

    You've been around these parts long enough. You should know by now that "weird OCDs" are like, the prerequisite for your membership card.

    what annoys me about all this is that he's releasing a 3rd MPM when we haven't had any oversized previous figures (Bonecrusher & Blackout)
