    Honestly as much as I rage against 'redos' on these boards, I think this would be my one exception.

    MPM-4 isn't bad by any means, it's fine... but seeing how spectacular these last few MPMs have been I would truly love to see an all-out near-perfect representation of that design, which I consider to be one of the best in the entire franchise, from Sam.

    I hope the first ROTF MPM figure is Optimus because his MPM is so bad compared to these modern ones. They could do something so much better now. Maybe finally ditch the ROTF leader class transformation they've been using ever since and do something completely new.

    Anyone have the comparison pics not chopped up???

    brawl is amazing 

    the con sizes are pretty perfect
    but why is Bonecrusher so huge! That\'s the one thing I hate about his figure

    i just wished we could get an MPM frenzy and an actual better scaled MPM scorponok 

    I hope they remake Optimus for ROTF his MPM needs major upgrades 

    I would to see if they can make jazz better now days with less shoulder chunk and a better backpack

    Because Bonecrusher is that size in the film, he's not tiny in the movie.

    Minesweepers are huge vehicles high off the ground, because they're designed to be impenetrable by mines lol

    I’d like to echo the calls for a Prime do-over and a ‘77 Camaro Bee. Toss in Frenzy with Bee to truly complete the 2007 line-up. Please make it so, Sam! :bowdown:

    Don't get me wrong, the DNA design frenzy is good, but it transforms into barricades DOTM gun.
    Not to mention maybe a proper sized MPM scorponok. Idk why but the studio series one scales better than the MPM scale

    Jazz is a decent mp and compared to the SS version he's massive. He's a great figure and I love the silver on him. The MPM line really is a lot bigger than the SS stuff though

    The other two MPM I have are barricade and megatron. Megs promised si much but ultimately disappointed me as his chest which has the allspark cube doesn't stay tabbed in. He is massive but the SS figure is better imo

    Barricade is good too even if his arms feel a tad long.

    Heh I never knew that the whole \"open slot where head shows\" thing is screen accurate. The actual tank prop used for the movie has it too! Also never knew that Brawl was taken from the XXX - State of the Union movie, apparently the whole GDI Mammoth Tank  look was created for that film.

    as stated before, bonecrusher is a pretty big bot, with a large vehicle mode. Minesweepers are massive armoured trucks designed to be immune to landmines. I think he works super well.
    As for Optimus, maybe they'll revisit this. But I will say the 3p offerings are pretty good, and cheaper/easier to get a hold of. Black mamba's one is oversized probably too much for MPM scale (why I sold off my MPM-8 Megatron since he's shorter than LS-03) but it's a solid figure. WeiJiang/Blackapple is more in scale, slightly oversized but it's as CGI accurate as you get.

    As for Jazz, I don't see a reason to redo jazz. Its a solid figure, and considering size constraints, pretty solid. I legit dont know where the arm kibble would go, and the back kibble is forgivable since it still looks pretty good.

    I preordered bonecrusher basically as soon as it was available, and shipped 4 months later. I call bullshit on people saying this will release before July since if this follows the same timescale, theoretically now.
    But you can only preorder this on 3rd party sites. Nothing on Hasbro or Hasbro UK

    tbh, the only good CGI accurate transforming Bumblebee's are the 3rd party versions from the BBM , TMT-01 for B-127 (although I have serious issues with this one, its good overall) and the transcraft/cyberera beetle bumblebees, so nothing bayverse wise.

    WW-01 is ok, but articulation doesn't improve much on MPM-3, not to mention the battle mask gimmick makes the head look a bit weird

    Dang MPM Brawl looks so obese in comparison to his on screen appearance. They should have sculpted his waist area better.

    So that's the difference. The SS had no panels which kinda ruined the silhouette of the shoulders. The MP has the same issue of the shoulder joint above and exposed but it doesn't look off cause there's something there that fixes the silhouette.
